want to go hike up a mountain at 1 am and listen to mount eerie's "no flashlight"

waiting to get into a private torrent tracker for two weeks before realizing that I had an account since 2017, thanks to my password manager

reminder that the source code for 7zip is available only in a 7zip archive

my twitter account is so chaotic because sometimes i'll retweet some graphic design but the tweet below literally reads "69 terashits per megafart"

about to have a mental breakdown because of twitter dot com

a few years ago I listened to pop and EDM and then a friend showed me rateyourmusic and now I listen to harsh noise wall

The year is 2025

There are five browser cores:
- webkit
- chromium
- gecko
- servo
- youtube-dl, which ended up implementing a full-fledged browser in python to keep successfully downloading videos

The year is 5019. Humans, as we know them, are long gone. The Earth is inhabited chiefly by advanced, sapient machines.

For legacy reasons, everyone's name starts with "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible;".

The weirdest thing to me about CORS is that you can't whitelist multiple sites in the same Access-Control-Allow-Origin header. It's either "*" or exactly one site.

So the standard solution is to echo back the referrer site, but only if it's whitelisted. "Ah yes foo.com, you are my one and only. I only allow requests from you." "Ah yes bar.com, you are my one and only. I only allow..." It's bizarre.

Dear Ruby devs and game devs. I have a crazy announcement I want to share. Please boost.

Last week I released A Dark Room to the Nintendo Switch. Within the game, I also shipped a Ruby interpreter and a code editor as an Easter Egg.

*This Easter Egg effectively turns every consumer spec-ed Nintendo Switch into a Ruby Machine.*

1. Download A Dark Room from the US/EU.
2. Connect a USB keyboard and press the “~” key.
3. Follow the onscreen instructions.

in 2008 we'd all crowd round the computer to see what the One Big New Thing was on the internet that week. there was only one thing that happened on the internet every week, by the end of the week news had reached all the outer forums and everyone knew about it. it was usually a flash game or a youtube poop. we'd all crowd round the computer. excited about what this week's new content was gonna be. the video loads. its luigi, and hes saying "SPAGHETTI" over and over again for eight minutes
