Good night, social media.
I've uninstall all of it from my phone. See you another day, when I sit at an actual computer.

I'm exhausted.

I just found an HTML page that is an email of an ASCII art teddy bear I sent to my mom when I was 13 years old.

What I'm saying (ranting) is: when I read a book should be a boolean value, not a timestamp.

"When did you read the book?"
> Yes.

(Any star wars book I have read or will have read in the future will be registered as being read "a long time ago" regardless of whether I _just_ finished it)

Hot take: I should be able to register a book not only as read "that year" but as read "that decade". Not to mention the special value "a long time ago".

I read Harry Potter somewhere between 2000 and 2010, and that's a precise as I need it to be.

I guess this is some kind of feedback for @bookwyrm, but I have no idea how or where* to give this kind of feedback, so now they just get an offhand mention.

(* It doesn't fit** in a github issue, that's for sure)

(** that's not what github issues are for!)

On the topic of registering books I've read:

Asking for a date is useless and bullshit, if I want to add my previously read books. I have no idea when I read Dune for the first time or how many times I've read it, or when I read it last. All that is completely irrelevant to the fact that I've read and enjoyed the book (multiple times!)

Let me be imprecise when tracking stuff, please!

@Tak I was missing a kind of "add book" button that would then let me search for a book, but turns out I had it backwards. I had to search for a book AND THEN add it to my stash, pile, whatever.

How do I add a previously read book to bookwyrm when I'm also currently reading one?

Also, how do I add the other book I'm currently reading?

Green Roofs Could Help Improve Solar Panel Efficiency.

...the roof loaded with greenery was 3.6% more efficient than the bare roof over the course of the experiment. The difference between the two was as much as 20% at peak generating times.

PHP is an action language*; there's explosions all over the place.

(* as in action movies)

I'm not apparently level four and have found a cool hat. I know it's cool, because the game slaps a fancy little "cool" marker on it.

Second attempt at getting to play Feral is go!

I should modify my mutuals-list-app to show me the people I follow who aren't mutuals. I wonder what that list would look like.
