lol who the hell uses instagram "DM" to do business

it *is* really funny that facebook knocked itself out for a day, but anyone who was still on that hellhole in 2021 is probably actually physically addicted, so it might be good to stay alert and wary of boomers acting out, or getting even more unruly than normal, for the next week or so

py jingo! computing a blake3 hash seems to be 5x faster than sha-256 on my laptop... so much faster, that i'm going to make it the default, and not worry about making an alternate format that doesn't do the block scan: 12 seconds to scan and archive 2.7GB is plenty fast!

I was messing about with "lite", a text editor written in about 1000 lines of C and 4000 lines of Lua: I ran my antifennel compiler over it to turn all the Lua into #fennel code to see how it would run.

if apple is going to call them "airpods pro" then im going to call them "ipods shuffle" and nobody can stop me

just completely fucking dumbfounded by this robot amazon announced recently. $999 for this thing. it's just a goddamn alexa on wheels and a shitton of cameras. it can't handle stairs. the advertising has it patrolling your house for intruders (you know like a fucking set of security cameras can already do if you're that paranoid). amazon is not even trying to hide their intentions with this thing. i have never seen something more worthy of a platinum internet of shit medal. jesus christ

I quit linguistics, as peak linguistics has been achieved. There's no point to pursue this science any further.
