Just ordered a heap of 3 layer fair trade organic cotton cloth masks. My parents are visiting again soon and wear masks whenever they’re out (on the VIC border) and I feel like it’s probably not long before we have to wear them in the ACT too. From Flora & Fauna $5.95 each if anyone’s on the hunt - they have plain black and a couple of cute prints.

Version 3 only recently arrived but life moves fast, so v3.1.0 just dropped!

With thanks to @mhmd, quiet mode just got quieter.

You can now make your choice between :

* ALL the messages
* traditional --quiet mode,
* -qq mode (Shush Harder), or
* -qqq ("LOL is this thing even working?")

@hugh made creating a config file harder to mess up, and squashed a bug he created in the first place.

Upgrade with pip install --upgrade ephemetoot or check out ephemetoot.hugh.run for info

Damn, looks like I'm going to have to use a regex in this sanitising function. Now I have two problems.

On this day in 1973, socialist Chilean President Salvador Allende was killed in a military coup that was supported by the United States who then helped install dictator Augusto Pinochet who went on to disappear, torture, and kill tens of thousands.

Never forget!

#11deSeptiembre

Re last boost:

When @syash says "bombed our gov. building" they mean literally the CIA-backed Chilean Air Force planes fired missiles on their own government offices.

9/11, US imperialism 

9/11 is coming up, which means i'm legally obligated to point out 9/11 here in chile is a different tragedy & also important

the 11th of september is when the chilean right wing (funded by the US gov.) bombed our gov. building, killed our democratically elected socialist president, gutted the welfare state & enacted martial law

followed by 17 years of a violent fascist dictatorship in which at least 3k people died, 40k were victimized and half of the country was traumatized

Every year I get the "Low and middle income tax offset" and I'm struggling to understand who *doesn't* get it, if I do.

Like, I'm no Jeff Bezos but I'm under no illusions that my income is "low". This offset is, as they say, Pure Ideology.

If the day ever comes where I decide my job title is "strategic consultant" I expect one of you to have a quiet word.

Yesterday I missed the bit where they thought they could leave government but keep their ministries..? These people, they are not smart.

PayPal has started emailing me insisting I “confirm my identity”. I think I’ll simply delete the account instead.

I know other people have had exhausting experiences but I doubt I will ever not think it's amazing when total strangers use let alone contribute updates to code I wrote.

Withdrawing government support because they want to kill koalas with impunity is certainly on-brand for the Nationals.

Zoom office farewells are so weird.

I'm impressed the NSW government have let their cyber security head off the leash like this, but also: I am sceptical that Service NSW really have keyboards this cool.
