just remembered Reader Reply Cards were a thing magazines did back in Yon Olden Dayes

imagine this, my young friends: you read a number of articles on a topic, interspersed with (mostly) topically relevant advertising, each ad with a number associated with it, and at the end, you can circle numbers on a card corresponding to the ads you were interested in, drop the card in a mailbox, and receive more detailed advertisements in your home mailbox over the next few weeks.

I want to have words with any UI designer who has decided scroll bars need to be only 5 pixels wide. Tired of having to have 360 no-scope accuracy to grab a scroll bar with the mouse.

Yes, of course I want a rotary cell phone.

The power switch is an actual slide switch. No holding down a stupid button to make it turn off and not being sure it really is turning off or what. justine-haupt.com/rotarycellph

When I moved in the first thing I needed at home was functioning Internet, so I decided to just run a long-ass ethernet cable through the entire hallway to see if everything's working. Of course, once that was established I would properly install the cable.

Three years later and I'm still yelling "careful, that cable!" whenever I have visitors.

Life hack:

Academic papers are written by human beings who want their work to be read; and these people actually pay to be published in those journals. the journals do not pay them. And all journal licensing deals stipulate that the original author retains the right to share their own research.

So 99% of the time if you email the author of an academic paper and ask for the PDF, they will gladly and excitedly give it to you for free over email.
