:audio: I wrote up and recorded a little tutorial for using with SunVox on Linux (Ubuntu 18.04), in case you're interested. It's super easy and doesn't use any of that JACK nonsense.

I've just discovered plarn (plastic yarn)!!! I was looking for some way to repurpose existing plastic bags into re-usable produce bags, and have come across this term and the associated crafts.

For anyone else unaware, people are creating spools of yarn from plastic bags and then using that yarn in knitting and crochet projects.

Here's an example: myrecycledbags.com/2010/11/05/

I've just tried making my own plarn and crocheting with it and I'm finding it surprisingly easy.

It's strange that, barring some horrible accident, I'll never see my internal organs. I mean, my lungs are with me all the time, they belong to me, and they're keeping me alive, but I don't know what they look like. I know what lungs generally look like, of course, but I wouldn't be able to pick mine out of a lineup.

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.

This sounds like it might be up your alley, @neauoire: "The Lisp Badge is a self-contained computer with its own display and keyboard, based on an ATmega1284, that you can program in the high-level language Lisp."
