I hate computers (and programming is terrible). 💩

Before leaving I got airport sushi for breakfast. This worked well, I think I’ll do this again. 🍣😋

① Yes, ② some do, ③ not as much as you’d think, ④ some do, ⑤ in Silicon Valley they sure do!

‘There are few pieces of software as widely misunderstood as []. Emacs is frequently advertised and discussed as a text editor, but please be clear on this: Emacs is not just a text editor.’—Christoffer Stjernlöf, Why You Should Buy Into the Emacs Platform (two-wrongs.com/why-you-should-).

Today I learned about overlays, a programming technique used on computers with limited RAM (such as minicomputers or early home computers) to enable use of programs larger than the available working memory. 🔗 en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overlay_

I hate that almost all of the content about old personal computers on YouTube is about games. I like games as much as the next boy who grew up with a PC, but can we get some love for whatever implementation of BASIC came with the machine? How about the kinds of word processing software available? Let’s not forgot these were general-purpose machines!

I love programmers who invoke Dijkstra’s name as you would a deity.

“I need to change some of my
behavior, and I want to apologize to the people that my personal
behavior hurt and possibly drove away from kernel development

I love that the default Emacs scratch buffer text got into Mario Golf (GBC) somehow. I wonder if this was a mis-copy-and-paste from a developer, or if it was another case of a compiler taking random memory contents and using them for padding in the ROM...

In three months I’ll have been at the translation company for six years, and I’d rather it didn’t become ten. I’ve been here, at the company and in Tokyo, since I graduated but it feels too long. Maybe it’s just that it’s longer than I spent studying my joint degree, which was five years. 🤔
