I implemented a pipeline operator in Rash (my Racket shell) that uses infix math if there is a number where the command would usually be. So now I can just type math expressions in my shell with no ceremony. So I guess I have no more reason to launch a Python repl ever again?
I think it says a lot that I would be in a much bigger hurry to leave Github if it had been bought by Google (which at one point I really liked) rather than Microsoft (which I used to hate more than probably any other tech company).
I'm really excited that the github acquisition is fueling a lot of interest in federated git hosting. I've wanted that for years.

Hmm... I don't look much at the federated timeline because everything seems to be in languages I can't read. I saw a setting to filter by language but it doesn't seem to be working. Oh well.
Apple: We triple-encrypt all your devices with military-grade encryption, then feed the decryption key to an intern, then throw the intern into the dinosaur pit. Even the NSA could never crack our crypto! You could bring down a government or fight a small war with our devices!
Also Apple: But if you just type 'enter' you can log in as root.
