  1. @strypey I went to every # # [mini-]con from 2008 to 2014. It went from being literally 1 female present in 2008 to easily a third in 2014. Anybody who seriously (outside of fantasy roleplay) believed in the inferiority of women wouldn't be in the # community.

  2. @strypey This seems an example of what Cory Doctorow would call autoimmune dysfunction ("It's something to do with sex! Panic stations!"). Larry is a cornerstone of the # community. Even if all involved eventually conclude it was a mistake, there's no walking this back.

  3. @bsmall2 I've not tried # I couldn't see anything indispensable about what # does that # with a generous char limit can't do. As a former # zealot, these (federated) services should all be readily duplicated by Drupal install profiles as well.

  4. @strypey I dunno. I set up a # account a couple of years ago to check out # integration and just thought "Is this it? Is this what all the fuss is about?" The vanity value of feeling important enough to be surveilled appears the killer feature.

  5. @panda Meant to ask you this morning: do you have a preferred # comment spam solution at the moment?

  6. @kat Yeah, I've just offloaded the last of my gratis # sites to some keen young people, and it's so long neglected it's not worth upgrading. These days I'd use wget. Actually, who am I kidding, I'd rely on Bless Brewster Kahle, curator of the planet Earth.

  7. #! Tried adding a new page display to an existing # view. The things I've completely forgotten in a couple of years!

  8. @zoowar What I really would have liked is to develop an # module for #, so I can microblog from my blog. Maybe one day, but I'm a full-time unpaid freelance academic at the moment.

  9. Wow. Setting up a little # site for the first time in over year. I have forgotten much.

  10. #! I never thought I'd live to see the day. # 8 to be released today (Western hemisphere time).

  11. Upside of glacial # major version release cycle: The version of Drupal in # stable is the current one.

  12. @tregeagle Cool. I was going to do something similar with # Feeds and QueryPath. But I'm always going to do things.

  13. Of course I do lose # on my # sites. Though, come to think of it, I hate WYSIWYG, don't I?

  14. Starting another ill-advised hobby website. I'm a bit rusty, but my goodness I love #

  15. Also the Great # Stagnation was due more to crappy shared hosting providers failure to upgrade than lack of competition. # was quicker to drop legacy PHP4 support than #, IIRC.

  16. #: I have forgotten it. All of it.

  17. Just posted to g.d.o. for the first time in a year. I don't miss the clients, but I do miss the # community.

  18. @boneidol I've been telling myself I'll rig something up in #, but never get round to it; all painstakingly done by hand so far.

  19. I am not yet ready to say I've escaped #, but there are no more admin user accounts popping up, no dodgy callback functions in menu router tables, and no sign of new executable files. # #
