Played some wild tunes tonight!

Clusters of tiny mussels between larger limpets on a rock. A rock pool filled with seaweed and shells. Seaweed on rocks. Waves lapping against a rocky shoreline.

Rockpooling at Spanish Point.

A group of pipers and fiddlers sitting in a circle playing their instruments while some bystanders listen, chat and have a pint.

Playing tunes on the street.

Cows gathered in the corner of a field. A narrow road between two green fields stretches all the way to the horizon. A green field under a blue sky with silver-white clouds. Waves lapping at a sandy beach under a dramatic cloudy sky.

Exploring the neighbourhood.

Jessica in a blue coat standing in the middle of a very narrow road with green fields on either side and white clouds in a blue sky, the photo composed like a Kubrickian vanishing point perspective shot or something from Wes Anderson.

The boreen to Miltown.

What if it turns out that DALL·E2 is really a project to train humans how to write good descriptive alt text?

“Oh, you’d like an image? No problem. Describe it.”

Time passes…

“Here’s an image. Describe it.”

I mean, “the line of command” sound pretty awesome actually!

Your challenge—should you choose to accept it—is to rewrite the documentation in such a way that the phrase is only ever used as an adjective or only ever used as a noun. 🙂

Replying to a tweet from @simonw

If used as an adjective, a hyphen helps disambiguate where to split the three words: “command-line tool.”

But used as a noun, a hyphen isn’t needed: “tool for the command line.”

Same with “front-end developer” and “the front end.”

Waitaminute… did Google deliberately ship support for the HTTP 103 status code in Chrome version 103? Or is this a numeroligical coincidence?

@PeteLe?

Bar Casa Vallés in San Sebastian is where it was invented in the 1940s but it should be pretty much ubiquitous in most pintxo places.

Yes!!!

Have you been having gildas too?

Guindilla + olive + anchovy = yum!

A beautifully drawn colour illustration of a fox running past a gnarled old oak tree with badgers sheltering among its roots.

Listening to a pre-release of the new @WildernessYet album and it’s wonderfully witchy stuff!
