And it was with his words the courts still spoke, and by his law our lives were deemed valuable or valueless. The fibers of his network still snaked through our walls, sending, never receiving.
The king was gone, but the tower stood, and would never be broken from within.

The king's head was displayed in the square, alongside an account of what had happened. But the black spire from which he had ruled still stood, its jagged shadow sweeping every district once a day. His five hundred viziers, faceless and impune, still ruled from its apex.

There are so many bits of charming, interesting character mode PETSCII art from the first year or two of the Commodore 64's lifespan, when that was the easiest and best understood way of getting graphics on screen. if this video had gone viral today instead of 7 years ago it would have become its own whole netflix show

Wore the same pair of shoes today that I wore Sunday, and there's still a decent bit of Marin county trail dust on em. I like being reminded I've had adventures.

notice to my friends in tech: please do not build parental control software. please consider how the software you’re working on could be used for abuse. please be responsible.

Menu bars are pretty good: I'm biased - I went with a menu bar for Playscii. And I think most mobile-influenced UI trends are just that, trends, and trends are a terrible thing for software you want to last.
Playscii is kind of stodgy and retro in that way. Menu bars can pack in a lot of features and I knew it would need a certain collection to be useful. In general I think it's better to present complexity honestly than try to hide it behind stylish pseudo-elegance.

) Sunk into a dark liquid pool, then rose again to the surface but the surface was your eyes, through which we saw all you saw, thought as you thought, as intimate as breath.

Due to new legislation, now we have to ask:
Can we keep doing all that?
