Whew, that took me a while to setup mu4e with multiple accounts correctly. But now it works like a pro. I even wrote a macro to create the contexts: github.com/steckerhalter/steck

I'm using mbsync for the imap sync this time instead of offlineimap (which caused too much weird errors). If you have questions, feel free to ask...

I want to live in the world where this is the real reason for web browser's convoluted user-agent strings.

“Dearest server, I am Chrome, the 64th of that name, child of WebKit, grandchild of KHTML, a disciple of Gecko, follower of the great Mozilla/5.0, running on Windows NT 10” twitter.com/potch/status/96358

the craziest part of browsing the web with noscript on is finding out which parts of a web are actually served off of completely different domains, and how many requests actually do nothing for the content of the webpage at all

Maybe the lesson here is "don't mutate your fluids"?

...I've been hitting my head against a wall for a while now and turns out it's because fluids/parameters have separate per-thread values, and the REPL is running in a different thread from the web server.

Playing with interactive server development in and finally realizing why Common has defvar and defparameter. You don't want to lose state when you reload a module.

But now I just found out Guile has 'define-once'! :D

I have no idea what my subconscious was up to last night, I got cascading images of time machines and spaceships and people betraying each other and blowing things up that didn't coalsece into anything coherent, but I remember ONE THING. A historian saying:

“ice cream is, throughout the universe, the cry of the culture on the brink of death. Only those civilizations a heartbeat away from collapse discover it. The more spectacular the collapse, the more delicious the ice cream that precedes it.”

Hi! We notice you're driving past our bookstore!

That's great, but you have your car windows closed. Would you mind opening your windows? We'd like to fill your car with wasps and locusts.

Now just one minute. Filling strangers' cars with wasps and locusts is how we pay our bills. Do you want us to starve?

We understand you may have had some bad experience with other wasp-and-locust providers. Some low-quality locusts got in the mix. But that's all been sorted out now!

Window. Open it.
