Note to self --on the last fail of 2018 (hopefully):

Don't spend an hour setting up Vim's Powerline if you do most of your work in Goyo mode because it's not, you know, visible.

What's a good open source software for managing bookings for groups or informal small events? Can't seem to find one.

Airports are such a weird combination of total fascism and complete anarchy. The explosives-checking lady at the security theatre swabbed me and a random guy behind me AT THE SAME TIME using the same swab, and now I’m watching a bloke down a schooner of beer and a latte with his Full English breakfast. It’s 6:30am.

Looks like TripleByte interviews a lot of Python developers, hence PyCharm registers significantly. If I was not writing Python code, I would almost certainly be using something else (and I am).

"when we look back on history, the progress of Western civilization and human rights is actually founded on the violation of law. America was of course born out of a violent revolution that was an outrageous treason against the crown and established order of the day. History shows that the righting of historical wrongs is often born from acts of unrepentant criminality. Slavery. The protection of persecuted Jews."

Looking at the mess we got ourselves into with the closed software, security, compatibility and obsolete systems, I'm starting to think that we should have had a system similar to patents for software copyrights.

What I mean is that in order to have your software protected, you *have* to publish its source code (but you don't need to make it open source, in that you don't have to allow its free reuse), and especially, that code should be available once the work gets into public domain.

If I didn’t self-host my code, I’d be looking very hard at sr.ht. Based on what I’ve seen, @sir is striking the right balance of meaningful features while staying out of your way.

The funniest thing about the most out there conspiracy theories is that they are so literal minded

They are only about the thing they are about. They have no epistemic ramifications or implications outside their chosen domain. The queen is actually a lizard. Everything else is baseline reality

Found my kid humming Kurenai, making it one of those days I feel I have succeeded in passing something worthwhile down to the next generation. 😅 Now let's see what abomination he'll start listening to as a teenager.

X Japan - Endless rain (last live) 9 million views on YouTube. Endless rain on the masked singer competition - 19 mil views.

An interesting way to enhance training, borrowing from lean, is to convert from a push based paradigm to pull based one. Instead of knowledge being pushed on to recipients, it is pulled in as one wants it.

@AkuAnakTimur fyi we managed to petition Grab to stop work in Thailand pending talks with the community. Would you guys like to do the same? Maybe we can develop collaborative framework together.

Large files use up lots of space on the hard disk, reading them take up lots of RAM. You can also write to them to make them big. Some files contain code, others data.

Maybe this limits their imagination, I don't know, but it does allow them to explore how computers manipulates information. Look through directories, find a bunch of files that can run and do interesting things.

I wonder if courses teaching kids to code have it wrong. I don't think kids should learn to use computers by learning computational thinking. They should learn to use computers by learning about files.
