Okay so this is cool:

It's like a blog entry, talking about my plans for code, right?

Only instead of just plans, it's got psuedocode of how to implement it.

Only instead of pseudocode, it's real code, that I can export as a source file.

Only instead of just that, I can also run it directly in my text-editor, and pass one bit of code's output to another, and bring multiple snippets together.

And - screenshot included - my editor looks nice.

It's pretty cool.

Ever meet tech people in the flesh and find out that none of those words are pronounced like you thought they were, because English orthography is a train-wreck?

Anyway here's what I've got it looking like atm.

The Chernobyl series had the very unfortunate and unintended effect of making people think nuclear energy isn't safe.

Nuclear energy is cheap, it's the safest energy source available, there are no emissions.

Coal plants emit more radiation. The nuclear waste can be dealt with, and is not a big deal.

Also, a possible problem that might kill a couple thousand people in a thousand years is much less of a problem than the millions that die and will die due to more carbon and pollution in the air.

For some reason, I can’t really put my finger on it, all the monopolistic big-ass Internet companies are constantly telling us that the future of computing is dumb terminals using their hosted services.

TIL: c-x n d in emacs moves paragraph to the new buffer and c-x n p returns to original file with changes. REALLY useful and comfortable. Only drawback – you can't simply undo it.
