oh wait, excuse me, dude did not invent curses, he invented pcurses, which was a free implementation of curses. OK. Phew.

Same dude invented the MOO-type of MUD, if you know that.

I actually know (well, knew) the dude who invented curses, oddly enough

Just read a purported history of roguelikes where it was claimed "curses" was a *programming language*

Man you know when you think of it the 1990s were really terrific

The demographics of librarianship are more homogeneous than computer science.

Let that sink in *truly*

hey #fediverse -- anyone on here using nikola (static site gen) with font awesome? I don't like using CDNs for privacy reasons, but I am having the *hardest* time adding fontawesome to my nikola 8 site.

It's very weird for me to post here and see the face of a dog that died when I was like 6 or 7 years old. Miss you Snuffy.

I love this country to bits, it is the finest place I have ever lived or probably will ever live, but everybody here is so goddamn stupid about property. Fuck off and sell your place.

somewhat sick-to-death of all the stories about Canadian real estate collapsing. I don't see a collapse, all I see is jackasses holding onto their houses for like three months and not dropping prices. Wake me up when the market actually corrects.
