update: actually it was raccoons, and they ate my corn.

(well, they didn't so much eat it as they sort of tore the ears off the stalks and partially unwrapped them and nibbled a bit and decided it wasn't really up to their usual standards.)

Ok, so, can we shout on browsers to bring back the "Subscribe to RSS/Atom feed" button in/near the URL bar?

I mean, clearly people are still using RSS/Atom. And they get annoyed they cannot find an easy way to subscribe.

hey everybody i just went to the future and they let me know that everybody forgot about blockchain like a year from now (well actually i had to look it up, because nobody knew what the fuck i was talking about except for one history-prof looking type who was like "oh yeah, like the thing with the tulips in the 1600s, right?") so good news you can all just get ahead of the curve and stop talking about it forever _right now_ if you want. seems like a good move to me.

i got in a fight one time with this EE friend of mine when he was like "if you don't know how the hardware works all the way up from the most basic units of organization in the bare metal you're a shitty programmer" and i sort of won by being like ok, sit down and write me a website and let's see how that goes 'cause actually it turns out that there are vast abstraction differentials here and they exist for reasons.

instance blocking blockchain cultists actually seems like exactly how this should work, more or less. they can go over there and i can remain blissfully ignorant and none of us have to fight about anything.

on a not unrelated note, it turns out that i've been a programmer for like a dozen years but i don't actually know anything about how computers work so that's also good.
