Me: I would like to get a faster grep utility!
Homebrew: Updates for minutes on end, completely negating any longterm speed benefits this tool would provide.
(P.S. the utility is ripgrep and it's hecka cool: https://github.com/BurntSushi/ripgrep)
This website, where you can view the location of real world grave sites and leave digital flowers for people you’ve never met is a good reminder that the internet can still keep it weird:
@blurrythoughts This is the only thing more tempting than the sugary sweet delight that is the donut itself.
@fuzzface No easy answers.
@fuzzface Stopped drinking a month and a half ago. Still wake up some mornings and feel like I partied with Slash in the 80s. The human body is mystifying.
@JPEG Some features are just clear improvements. Once a company discovers one, it's up to everyone else to integrate it into their own platforms.
@JPEG First, it was expecting everything I own to dim when inactive and brighten back up when it was moved like the Wii U. Now it's this. 2018 is hell.
@blurrythoughts or the name of their (undoubtedly critically adored, but naturally slow-selling) country project.
@blurrythoughts When I was very young I legitimately thought this was their name.
@milesm Yeah. A lot of making tech do what it does not want to do.
@milesm Sometimes I wonder if it is worth it. I spend a bunch of time trying to figure out which package is breaking which other package in under which version. All I want to do is build a thing.
@lotus42 Ha, it’s all good. “Toot” as a verb and noun is the worst part about this.
