blogPoster now has a Twitter-only branch in GitHub. Unfortunately that seems to be the direction in which things are heading. github.com/passthejoe/blogPost

blogPoster update: Ruby 3.0 is working for Twitter in Windows, but in Linux it'sno-go for the entire app in Ruby 3.0. I thought I could disable Mastodon posting and have it work, but no. Another problem: My Fedora laptop's keyboard is dying again, making testing difficult. github.com/passthejoe/blogPost

Twitter sends me a LOT of ads for video games. Do they know I have zero interest?

I need to set up a version of my blogPoster app with the newer version of the Twitter gem and no mastodon-api gem. If that solves the issues with Ruby >= 2.7, I might have to leave the unmaintained mastodon-api on the side of the road and make the app Twitter only. github.com/passthejoe/blogPost

I read a book. It was "The Big Sleep," by Raymond Chandler. I had never read it before, though I have seen the movie.

I wasn't in CentOS Stream 8 for a week, and I had quite a few updates waiting for me. RHEL/CentOS is a LOT more dynamic that you'd think. I've seen little bugs get fixed here and there. It's a lot more active than Debian Stable.

I need to run curl with NO output, and I used the --silent switch to do it. You can also use -s, but I like --silent because it tells me what it does.

Now that I'm running Windows 10 without performance-crushing updates looming, it's a fairly pleasant experience. Solve the update problems, @microsoft.
