You know you might have enjoyed a TV show a bit much, when you recognize a background song that's never in the foreground after a few seconds

I remembered to finally get rid of the Christmas hat... Took me only 140 days...

Small lifehack: try to avoid splinters! especially if they have a diameter of over 1mm

I was wondering earlier wtf emacs' tramp didn't want to remote open a file via SSH all of a sudden after working fine for other machines until I realized I had oh-ny-zsh running on that target machine...

Anyone hosting a fast instance? is slow af. Other public instances either are slow as well, or run by who tf knows. ( @angristan you wanna host one?)

human friend, go now and drink some some few wants he has to satisfy, and must therefore do a little useful work of various sorts, such as making tools and furniture, taming goats, fishing and hunting.

Broadening a thought: We'd be better off if we stopped talking about "the internet of things" and started talking about "computers don't always look like we expect them to".

Instead of saying "internet-enabled" it might be wise to say "regardless of what it looks like, that's a computer and you should treat it like one".
