19th Century NFTs of the Victorian transatlantic blockchain:
“A register will be kept of the orders as they are received…”
The occassional non-Irish tune is okay but you should balance it out with four of five trad Irish submissions.
A good rule of thumb is: would I play this in an Irish session?
Actually, I meant fix that ship stuck in the Suez canal. Just ’cause my mind had allocated equal importance to that and The Minecraft Situation.
Very happy that one of them has been resolved!
Now do the ship.
Personally I prefer code previews to code reviews:
Can we talk about their deductive reasoning skills (or lack thereof)?
For example: “Tonight there’s going to be a jailbreak …somewhere in this town.”
Somewhere in this town‽
Like, maybe, oh, I don’t know …the jail perhaps?
Our two talks are going to be very on-message. I’m looking forward to the one-two punch!
Herzlichen Glückwunsch! Sieht sehr schön aus!
I just booked my vaccine appointments—this is a happy St. Patrick’s Day!
This is like the Pluto-Goofy paradox all over again.
I quoted you on this topic in this episode of the Clearleft podcast:
You are cordially invited to join us:

It’s fascinating to imagine the alternate universes of possibilities that might have formed out of the early discussions around the topology of the web:
Nein, wir kümmern uns nicht an solche Kleinigkeiten, Herr Haarspalter.
Thanks so much for filing that bug—much appreciated!

When you stare into the abyss, sometimes the abyss stares back.
Wait. The abyss is on mute. “Abyss! You’re on mute!”
Oh, I’m on mute too.
That explains all the staring.

And nary a word on the unconscionable profligate waste of energy that is Proof of Work.

Will It Funge?
Very pleased that BBC iPlayer now has the television adaptation of Dan Simmons’s The Terror.
Or, as @wordridden calls it, Monster And Commander.
Anyone who is unironically into NFTs just sounds like Nathan Barley to me.
“A self-facilitating non-fungible media node, yeah?”
The difference being that Nathan Barley didn’t burn the planet for kicks.
It was an honour for me to be there for such a bittersweet momentous finale!
Then it can be both a witty literary reference and a nice short name to go with Bert.
Though I did once do a karaoke duet of Jackson with @grigs—he was Johnny; I was June.
Speaking of his novel Mother Night, Kurt Vonnegut said it was the only story of his whose moral he knew:
