somebody bettered the community and fixed this and they didn't need a financial incentive to do so

when i was a kid I wanted to make software that came in a box. the box was, in my mind, the important proof that it had value. and now, even though I make free open source stuff, I kind of want to make a box for the things I worked on and put it on a shelf anyway. It has only recently dawned on me that I can just *do* that if I want to.

as a systems researcher, a part of me wants to write a response post to the many "why is software so slow and use so much memory when computers are so fast"... but... yanno... only so much time in the world

I don't know much, but every time I see a strong narrative-focused game company closure, (like telltale) I see it as a sign that something is broken. and, well, we need to support our often overlooked writers and storytellers.

i like that the autocomplete tells me that people will be celebrating the equinox appropriately

you can't just call yourself a bat... you just *have* to also point out you're a man. how insecure.

@ticky the orange website is the dang worst. but tee is great. I only learned about this trick with tee myself a few months ago! I was very confused why tee didn't do this by default... it was what I assumed it just *did*. seems like it's best use-case (which they certainly do omit from the man page... for some reason)

Stop spreading stereotypes. Your librarian isn't telling you to "shh" they are recommending that you look in the index under S-Sh
