Zipcar feels like it’s gotten a lot worse over the last few years: https://www.roguelazer.com/2019/10/zipcar/
https://www.propublica.org/article/inside-turbotax-20-year-fight-to-stop-americans-from-filing-their-taxes-for-free is full of infuriating details. Intuit are dicks.
@tim1724 is knuth down?
I bought some Audio-Technica ATH-CKS5TW earbuds recently and, if anyone is looking for Bluetooth earbuds to use with an iOS device, I'd highly recommend them. Great audio quality (they support AAC which is the top thing to look for in Bluetooth audio devices to use with iOS), crazy-long battery life, reasonably comfortable, and they block most of the BART screech without giving me an ANC headache.
Update: this is a kernel bug, which I've filed upstream at https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=205103.
Low light mode on the new #iPhone is pretty good
Important #iPhone 11 update: it doesn't completely lose service in SFBART near MacArthur. Modem/radios are at least slight improved over all previous Intel iPhones...
Someone at work mentioned a paper from college today, and I idly noticed that I have a folder full of papers I wrote for a history class ("History of Science and Technology in the Modern World") from my Junior year that I have *absolutely no memory of taking*. According to my transcript, I got an A?
Seriously, if you'd asked me yesterday I would've sworn I never took a history class after high school.
I am deep in the #Ruby (YARV) internals trying to figure out some locking around `GET_VM()`. I think my brain is leaking out of my ears.
Did #neovim 0.4 just get quietly released? I see the `stable` tag getting bumped on Github, but no release announcement.
TW: suicide, public transit
Not to be callous, but if you're the primary commuter transit in a several-million-resident metro area, maybe you should have a strategy to not completely shut down for an entire evening of commute every time someone causes a "major medical emergency" by jumping in front of a train. This happens every couple of weeks on #SFBART
