1. find new interesting software (feed2tweet)
  2. try it out, file two issues:
  3. itch enough that i need to scratch it and file 3 pull requests to ask for forgiveness:

All fairly trivial, but it allowed me to make a simple cronjob to post my Ikiwiki blog posts straight out to my Twitter account. It's basically abusing my RSS feed to bridge with Twitter: the most boring and annoying part is setting up a new app, pasting the credentials in the config file and then running the thing in a cron job.

But in the end, I really ended up spending one more hour at a time when I should be really sleeping, scratching an itch that I didn't have before I started working on this thing in the first place.

Coincidentally, I requested to be added to Python Planet, looks like a fun place...
