OH: "I will be late to work today; there's snow coming down, which is unusual for where I live."
"But ... you work from home!"
"Yes, but I have kids."
My secret project is now public. It's called ick and it's a CI system.
I mean, while we're at it we should bring back ð and ʒ.

A major theme of the film is "we can't just continue doing things as we've always done them" which is communicated both explicitly and in a number of subtler metatextual ways (mostly visual references to ESB).
In context, it almost seems like a nod to the mistakes of The Force Awakens; saying they've learned that re-hashing the original trilogy isn't good filmmaking, and every time in TLJ when it looks like they're heading in a re-hash direction it twists unexpectedly.
Hm. I _could_ unpick enough of the dlopen worker to do what I think I need to do… or I could hand splice the link map.
Hand me my lab coat and goggles.

We have to be careful not to end up in a situation like about 16 years ago when websites were optimized for certain browsers. These days it is not #Microsoft Internet #Explorer but #Google #Chrome. Now it's the time to act if you care about a free and open web. Refuse to use Google Chrome! https://www.theverge.com/2018/1/4/16805216/google-chrome-only-sites-internet-explorer-6-web-standards
I trained a neural network on a list of deleted Wikipedia titles. Not sure who is weirder this time, neural net or humans. http://aiweirdness.com/post/169309161212/wikipedia-articles-invented-by-a-neural-network
I learnt of a new method for computing the value of an arbitrary bit of pi, any bit, without having to compute the preceding ones first. It's O(1), so quite fast.
Unfortunately it sacrifices mathematical correctness to achieve that speed and is correct only about 50% of the time.
