programming is a murder mystery where you are the murderer but also the victim and also the detective and also the second cop who makes a face and says "bad luck, that. What are we thinking? Robbery gone wrong?"

Okay, this is super annoying...

Finally got around to reading the Battle Angel Alita books I got off of the Humble Bundle, only to discover my Kobo won't open images in a CBZ file over ~10MB.

So now I'm having to resize all of the images just to be able to read the books.

Grrr...

@dildog William Gibson himself agrees

"Much of the planet’s human population, today, lives in conditions that many inhabitants of North America would regard as dystopian. Quite a few citizens of the United States live under conditions that many people would regard as dystopian. Dystopia is not very evenly distributed."

When I started out using Linux in my 20s I was a pretty loyal ViM and GNOME user.

In my late 20s and 30s I began o alternate between macOS and a variety of really stripped down, terminal-heavy environments (Xmonad, i3, etc.). Still primarily used ViM as my text editor though.

In my late 30s/40s, I've found myself drifting back to Linux full-time... But now preferring KDE and Emacs.

It's been an interesting journey.
