Pinned toot

Submitted v 2.0.0 of my janitor πŸ“¦ to CRAN! Now hoping it passes all checks and is accepted.

Big milestone. I'd said I didn't have time for this project, that it was done, that I wanted to focus on other things. And yet there is a lot of good, thoughtful functionality added in this major revision!

@openscience do you know of folks tooting about on Masto? I'm glad to be off Twitter but the hashtag is what I miss most. Would love to build that community up here.

Folks working on open source, with strangers, for the fun of it and because it can help so many other strangers, is heart-warming.

Humans aren't driven by competition and individualism. That's a lie! We got this far by cooperation and altruism and we need them more than ever to keep going now.

This was made possible by contributors, folks I've never met. The in-depth, trusting collaboration between people who have never spoken or even communicated outside of GitHub continues to amaze me.

In particular Bill Denney has been amazing, he writes flawless code that I could only dream about and is patient with my hot-then-cold attention to this project. He's busy with work, family, and yet finds time to work on janitor.

Anyone have a quinoa recipe they like? Vegetarian plz, or if not I can probably adapt it.

Can't get too cocky though -- I thought I was done, then ran a reverse dependency check and found failing tests in *someone else's* package that revealed problems in mine. Without that I would have released it with errors.

Which is why I'm patching bugs while the baby naps πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

Prepping for a major release (v 2.0.0) of my package janitor. Lots of changes already in master on GitHub.

Hit 600 unit tests -- and they're all passing! πŸŽ‰

As I dug up the grass, I found buried in the earth a cheap plastic tomato plant marker and a nice, metal "parsley" marker. This was a vegetable garden before it got turned into grass 🀯 We agreed this means we must plant parsley there and use that marker.

Good omens.

Permaculture-in-my-yard updates:

- Dug a big hole for my hugelkultur mound, started filling it with rotten logs I foraged from a neighbor's pile. [photo attached]
- Acquired a gooseberry plant and several red currants from a friend, via bicycle obv. (both kids biked the whole 4-miles-total trip!)

Anyone tried out Jitsi, an open-source alternative to Zoom et al?

Refactoring old code from my janitor package and enjoyed seeing this old comment from myself

Today I read about Shashiko, Japanese functional embroidery, and planned and pinned my first piece. Tomorrow I'm taking a shot at my first piece, repairing my wife's bluejeans!
