When I was a kid I made a tape copy of the Nirvana CD "In Utero" by playing it on a Windows 98 computer one of my relatives had hooked up to a stereo system, but he had a G.I. Joe theme installed, and I was using the computer for other things at the same time, so the copy of the album I had was full of random samples of Cobra Commander shouting at people, and the real version of the album has never sounded quite right to me without the yelling

If you or your company rely on curl, consider a support contract. While I enjoy spending my spare time on this, actually getting food on the table is a cool concept! wolfssl.com/products/curl/

I don't know whose text Google is analyzing for this predictive conversation thing but I'm definitely hoping it's not my own. Who wants to find out pablum like this is somehow their default setting?

i hate how youtube monetization has incentivized everyone to convey information in the form of a youtube video demo even when it is the worst possible format and all you really need is a simple diagram

I found an old 2012 article about Twitter and remember how joyous and vibrant and optimistic it was, compared to the Facebook hellscape. It was strange to think that it wasn't much more than the moral abdication of its leadership that's made it such a disaster, but I suppose that's every human lesson about everything worthwhile that's ever been built.

@lawremipsum as Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a gigantic bugfix

At a certain historical remove it’s going to look like Tae Bo led directly to UFC.

@emacsomancer @gnomon the holy grail was an 11”+ Pixel Qi screen, but it was not to be.

Not like everyone says! I’m smart and I want respect! Tell then I’m smart!”
