big dingbat energy

i’ve got two things to write about

https://today.snoot.club and the manager app for it.

https://chee.xo.snoot.club/notebook/ and how it all works.

they’re both cool but i’m so tired, and i’m sick now too

but, anyway, today i wrote a bit of code for emacs so it displays emoji correctly using the Apple Color Emoji.ttf font on linux. it looks great. big dingbat energy.

it falls back to iosevka because that’s the only font i know to have characters for the legacy computing block which has some indispensable symbols like this large hand:

🯁🯂🯃

a monochrome line drawing of an index hand with a cuff pointing to the right

this hand is three separate characters,

• LEFT THIRD WHITE RIGHT POINTING INDEX
• MIDDLE THIRD WHITE RIGHT POINTING INDEX
• RIGHT THIRD WHITE RIGHT POINTING INDEX

and also the wonderful LEFT HALF RUNNING MAN:

🮲

a cropped stick figure caught mid-run. the right limbs are cropped off around the sockets
where is he going? why is he so long? the rest of his body is in another codepoint. RIGHT HALF RUNNING MAN 🮲🮳
