i should make an account called "genex erasure" where i catalog these microaggressions

me on my deathbed: "come closer...

the control key is still not a good substitute for the command key. use alt instead."

I am of the firm opinion that not enough videogames let you be a dragon

ok one small complaint about gitea: it could log less. or rotate its logs. ever.

Continuing my research today on Ventura Publisher. Lee Lorenzen, who worked on GEM at DRI and later Publisher, explained in an interview that they decided to package Publisher with a built-in GEM runtime. This allowed him to get the entire windowing interface into just 24 KB of RAM.

Had he used Windows 1.0, it would've required at least 325 KB of RAM just for the UI. And we're talking about a program that had to run on a 640 KB system.

Nice to know Windows bloat has always been a thing. 😂

doh... firefox accidentally blew away all my login tokens during its upgrade

computers are hard

google sounds like such a toxic place to work* :( medium.com/@arielkoren/googles

no matter how big the company or how star-struck you are by their brand, do some sniffing around before committing to join any company!

(* i already knew this from having worked with xooglers at a past job, but still: yikes!)

I love 9/11 eve... trimming the 9/11 tree, putting up the 9/11 lights, leaving out cookies and jet fuel on the mantelpiece,
