Downtown Buenos Aires sure looks like a mix of European cities.

Is there a way to use nested loops in C, compiling with GCC? Because I can't seem to make them work, not even a printf works, but the compiler throws me no errors.

So, Xiaomi decided it was a good idea to remove the "disable notch" feature in MIUI 10.1. I guess they'll get pitchforks and torches for doing that. At least they added an option to display notifications in the notch.

I've spent 10.169 minutes listening to Spotify this year. 30h spent on Metallica. Now That We're Dead was my most streamed song.

Idea: Opt-in directory of accounts on a server, categorized by opt-in hashtags. Sound good?

Not sure how to sort though. Alphabetic doesn't make a lot of sense; by number of followers will make a lot of people yell. Maybe assign a random but persistent sorting order.

I just realized that my english is being affected by my lack of sleep.
