Good morning.

I just had a dream where I had to type a number but NumLock was off and I got garbage in my terminal instead.

Even in my sleep.

EVEN IN MY SLEEP.

I've been using Twitter semi-regularly again. I feel guilty.

A silly little thing which improves code ergonomics β€” when making lists of repeated entries, make pyramids:

5,000 Icelanders are in the stadium watching the game. If the equivalent percentage of the Brazilian population were in a stadium watching a game, that would amount to roughly the entire population of Uruguay (give or take the entire population of Iceland)

For decades Microsoft was known for its centralizing culture: everything was in-house.

Then they started to use Github heavily.

And now Github is "in-house".

Imagine timetravelling back to Slashdot circa 1999 and telling them Microsoft just acquired the largest hoster of open source projects

Wat, merge request approval is a paid feature in GitLab? Being #2 I thought they would try harder to match Github's free tier feature set.

Uploading my ~20Gb MP3 collection to my phone for the first time. Last time I carried music with me was around the time of the iPod 4th gen.

Incidentally, I think that was the last time I updated my MP3 collection (yeah, been lazy the last years and listened to music very sparsely, mostly from YouTube, I hate to admit).

Are computers a sort of End of History for music instruments? now that we have devices that can produce any form of sound wave and automation that made music execution independent of physical processes, is there ever going to be a truly new musical instrument? could a newly-thought UI significantly affect what new music is made?

@hisham_hm @gemlog @envgen maybe it's because music technology hasn't actually changed at all in 15 years. all the music that's being made now would be completely possible to make 15 years ago
