What is this, like Diaspora? Might as well try it.

This deck of Microsoft Solitaire cards designed by Susan Kare is pretty good.

It's almost like Florida is full of "Florida Man"s

Trump administration paid millions to company that's been around for six days founded by an ex-telemarketer for covid-testing test tubes but they are useless preform soda bottles that aren't even sterile.

I feel bad for anyone traveling back in time to warn about what's happening in 2020, because no one is going to believe them.

If we stopped letting users log bugs, we'd have zero issues with our software.

It's funny that we backup our data in something called the "cloud", something named after one of the most ephemeral substances.

I've been to renaissance fairs but haven't seen a single codpiece.
