Alright frens, I have another dumb post about C stuff.
It seems like every C program I come across uses a very simple key=value way of handling files for the end user, and yet there isn't a C library that they all use in order to make config parsing extremely breezy? Why??
I get that these formats are easy to implement from scratch, but what ever happened to DRY?

this is a great article! "why you hate contemporary architecture" https://www.currentaffairs.org/2017/10/why-you-hate-contemporary-architecture
i kept nodding and going "yeah! wow it's not just me! i'm not alone in hating these things!" ... except the part about skyscrapers, i still think tall buildings are cool and can be done well.
(i think i saw this posted here a few weeks ago, but it takes me a while to get through the longreads)
Now I've got them.
Look at what's happened to the unmoderated Usenet newsgroups, they're almost entirely spam these days.

Hurrah, I'm now using Thunderbird portable, instead of Outlook. 😀
Fixed now, somehow the files were set to read-only.
The only portable email to choose is Thunderbird, but its import from Outlook function is broken.
20 odd years of emails in MS Outlook folder trees, 3 separate .pst files, about 5 Gb. All POP3 and SMTP. Is there any other email program that can safely import these and also runs off a USB drive? #portableapps
