gender-appropriate language 

I'm still low-key annoyed that the German gender star doesn't make much sense if one follows glob(1) rules. Brace expansion would be slightly better, but I hope that in the end we will end up with a proper regex. Sure, "BΓΌrger(?:innen)*" might be a bit hard to pronounce, but when did that ever stop the German language?

Just learned about Human Design. Oh boy. Is there any permutation of "ancient wisdom" that hasn't been appropriated by some white dude with an assumed name?

Rewrote the 100R website as an extremely simple wiki(200 lines of C89) with redlinks, templating and includes support.

Anyone interested in creating a static wiki, and learning a bit of C at the same time, might be interested in forking it to build their own wiki.

Lemme know if you have any question~

What are some audio equivalents of pixel art that don't boil down to either something that just "sounds right" (i.e. just make a chiptune in your modern DAW) or is system-specifci (e.g. SIDs)? I guess MODs would be the 16-bit version, is there something more lo-fi?

Ah, Paul Graham posted another "essay"? On a scale from Vogon poetry to 7th grader Atlas Shrugged book report, how bad is it?

its fucked up nowadays, you cant just make a thing. you have to make a running series of that thing, which goes on forever, and has a patreon, a mailing list, a discord channel, an official wiki, a fan wiki, a prima strategy guide, its own cryptocurrency, flag, national anthem, nuclear deterrent, etc

It's delightfully egalitarian to see that the current crop of bootcamped web developers are as good in overengineering as graduates with real diplomas and stuff.

Why did Jeff Bezos get a divorce? 

Because he heard that a marriage is a type of union.

Release the Mystery Men Snyder Cut!

The whole RMS debacle (it is one, no matter where you stand) made me wonder: Is there a good "new" free software voice out there (so at least under 40)?

Not just a famous open source developer, not just someone who's spreading the Linux distro of their choice, someone with something to say and preferably nothing to sing?

"Problems that our CSS framework is > 10 megabyte? No problem, just install this 121 megabyte 'compiler'!"

The BFDL obsession of the open source world is really weird.

So now that we got Cobra Kai out of the way, can we get Steve Vai in for a redemption arc where he tries to get his soul back from the devil?

So it's 2021 and the most anticipated movie uses 4:3 and the Quake I palette?

My favorite thing about computer vision attack vectors is all the attacks have a Looney Tunes energy like how far are we away from people painting tunnels on walls lmaoo
