This internet is a fairy realm.

Why did you think you kept losing track of the time.

I think he really is that clueless but I get really tired of being invisible and having to be super aggressive to not have to keep switching stations at the gym because of some dude. (It's always some dude.) And I had the bike all set at the height I wanted and the right weight dumbbells set up behind it, so didn't want to move everything.

Humans have been depicting beekeeping in art for 40,000 years and it's now thought this development contributed to human brain capacity development to a similar degree that meat did.

I keep seeing glances of folks talking about a metaverse like it's a new thing and not a bad Flash knockoff of Second Life ~2004, fueled by banality and digital asphalt.

while i am praising zotero stuff, s/o to Leon Tran's zotero-memento plugin that automatically gets an archive.org link for everything you add. super useful if you need to cite websites, blog posts, or other potentially ephemeral things :)

Wait, what is Google purportedly about to do to termux? The scare posts are short on detail.

My task list for Thursday reads like a medium-sized explosive, composed entirely of paperwork.

Me, listening to a prof describe some concept: "Ohhh, this why that project I did when I was twelve didn't work! Neat! Now I know the word for that thing it was doing, and wikipedia can tell me how to fix it."

Every day I become more convinced that school is just trying to teach me how to communicate, and that technical skill is something I have to get on my own.

I know it won't always be this fun but I'm loving my job right now.

I want an animation.

Storm blowing it. Cat's sitting in the windowsill beside me, sneezing. (big storm by the looks of the weather alerts; if in germany, batton the hatches, whee)

Should programs that use the $EDITOR environment variable try to fork&exec it directly or interpret it as a shell command?

If I set EDITOR="emacsclient -t", some programs do the right thing while others complain that "emacsclient -t" can't be found in $PATH. I'm trying to decide whether to report bugs for some programs that take the latter path.

(Yes, I could stick a one-line script on my path somewhere, but that's not ideal.)
