Just the most badass mouse mat you are ever likely to witness :)

In German every sentence is a miniature whodunnit, you have to keep on reading to the end to find out what the verb will be.

arxiv.org/ is really excellent for hosting pre-prints (and final versions) of papers. I wasn't sold at first, but it's grown on me. Good show arxiv!

@omerk How hard would it be to make an open source and low cost yubikey 4 a-like? Can't help but feel yubikey 4 is a little expensive for individuals...

The Internet Archive has decided to ignore robots.txt
blog.archive.org/2017/04/17/ro

This is amazing news for internet history.
a) All public stuff will be crawled. Don't want that? Don't make your shit public.
b) Lapsed domains replaced with parking pages using restricting robots.txt won't prevent old, dead versions of sites from being visible.

Archive everything. #NewLibraryofAlexandria #OCD

Would like a yubikey 4, but wow, the £££ :(

Okay, Sticker Mule has basically abandoned our stickers. I need a new company that can print stickers and most importantly that can do the selling and shipping on my behalf (like a marketplace). Anyone suggestions?
