Here is a long thread on keeping moss as a houseplant that I pulled off my twitter, wrapped up as a blog post - so now you can read about practical moss gardening without having to visit that website :>

Et hop le drama du jour nous vient de chez Google qui décide d’implémenter de nouvelles balises non standardisées dans Chrome.

En sachant que la seconde étape c’est de communiquer massivement dessus pour que les devs l’utilisent et que ça devienne un standard non standardisé et que tout le monde doive suivre.

C’est chouette les positions dominantes, hein ?

Drôle de monde où on décore ceux qui vont sauver des pêcheurs (et c'est normal) tandis qu'on menace Pia Klemp de 20 ans de prison et de 15k€ d'amende par personne sauvée.

A friend of mine in Missoula Montana, a mental health counselor, needs help staying housed and fed while she recovers from leg surgery.

If Howard Schultz can take the summer off to heal, she ought to be able to as well.

Using #ImageMagick #montage #identify and #convert commands to make a #gradient out of image thumbnails sorted by average #sRGB #grey level:

```
montage -tile ${COLUMNS}x${ROWS} -geometry ${TILEWIDTH}x${TILEHEIGHT}+0+0 $( identify -colorspace RGB -format "%[fx:mean] %[filename]\n" in-*.png | sort -nr | cut -d\ -f 2 ) out.png &&
convert tmp.png -colorspace RGB -geometry ${WIDTH}x${HEIGHT} -colorspace sRGB out.png
```

I didn't yet figure out how to get the #gamma-correct colour space conversion to happen inside the montage's own rescaling, so I render at natural size and #downscale with convert afterwards.

The last image is the good result, the other two are gamma-incorrect, thus they appear too dark on screen (and presumably print too).

@xvw oh, Ocsigen bouge encore, et ils supportent la syntaxe reason ( :-/ )
Par contre, certains aspects du projet me font un petit peu mal.

@xvw makes military-grade strong coffee.

Consider yourself warned 😁
