“In this talk I’ll explain my favourite subject, ‘a11y’ (which for the uninitiated stands for ayyyyyyyyyyy)…”

The Kraftwerk 3-D Katalog album is so so good. It’s like they took all the things they’ve always wanted to tweak in their songs and re-did them, but using mostly the original synths. It sounds better than the original tracks, but keeping the original style (and of course with a much better mastering quality now).

"I use Linux as my operating system," I stated proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. He swiveled around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision. "Actually," he said with a grin, "Linux is just the kernel. You use GNU+Linux!" I don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk: "I use Abyss, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. It's Linux, but not GNU+Linux."

The smile quickly drops from the man's face. His body began convulsing, he foamed at the mouth, and he dropped to the floor with a sickly thud. As he writhed around he screamed, "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!" In a cool fashion, I replied "Abyss uses the LLVM compiler suite, GCC uninvolved."

With a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life was ejected from his body. He lied on the floor, cold and limp. I've womansplained him to death.

I can’t explain it but I love Grateful Dead so much.

For an album whose title track is a solid ballad, “Forever Young” by Alphaville is definitely full of solid bops. Definitely recommended.

I’ll believe it when I see it. (It didn’t work the last time)

I’ve been working a bit on Kodex, my (free) code editor app for iPhone and iPad, and if you’d like to try it you should join the TestFlight group: testflight.apple.com/join/5bax

Recently I’ve been mostly working on performance improvement, adding some long requested features, and lots more.

“In daredevil stunt, flat-earther proves his conspiracy true by becoming flat himself.”

For the first time in my life I had the presence of mind of taking down a note about a passing thought in order to come back to it later.

Uuuh the button to disconnect the eGPU from the Mac is gone from the menubar…

Operation “dump 80GB of music into iPod” has been initiated.

Also, the good news is that I was able to replace the HDD for a flash card adapter, and installed a 128GB SD card on it.
