I swear, if I can get out of this with an intact, accurate, and *pretty* css file, I won’t be minimizing it at all any longer. I’m pretty sure it was small enough to begin with that minimizing wasn’t even saving that much. It’s not worth introducing this not-directly-maintainable artifact into the workflow.

I think I’m going to have no other choice but to make a copy of the minified code, and just painstakingly un-minify it by hand in an editor. And at the moment this whole situation is so spooky and inexplicable that I’m not 100% convinced even *that* will work.

I even tried running the .min.css through an unminifier script and pasting the result in place of the file contents. It made the problem worse! Buh?

Oh gosh darn me to heck, at this moment the minified stylesheet for my personal homepage is the one the works, which would be swell except that the big prettified stylesheet which *should* be the same, is obviously different in some subtle but significant way that breaks the expected page layout.

It just occurred to me a lot of people at my work like to use tmux in situations when nohup would suffice

I love and it freaks me out a little that you can have a git repo with multiple root branches, all entirely disjoint from one another. I'm not a fiction writer, but this seems like it could be the basis for an interesting literary device. A singular but complex piece of writing in the form of text files in a git repository, with entirely different stories along different branches, or different pieces of the same story, or rather multiple versions of the story, told from various points of view. Interesting effects might be obtained using the commit history and log graph, introducing bits of plot that are overwritten in later versions, so the reader would have to check out earlier versions to discover.

I can't be the first person to have thought of this, can I? Surely something at least somewhat like this already exists somewhere? Hm...

I hate when it’s late and I’m really tired and I just want to go to sleep and and then my brain is all “this pillow seems like the *perfect* spot to think about what the edge of the universe could possibly be like, and what’s on the other side of it?”

obscure take: Springsteen's weird obsession with not wanting to hear the drumsticks hitting the drums on Darkness on the Edge of Town just makes the drums on "Badlands" sound really strange and wrong.

Now this is a video I’m gonna just keep in my back pocket.

“When one realizes the Self, in whom
All life is one, changeless, nameless, formless,
Then one fears no more. Until we realize
The unity of life, we live in fear.”

“Cryptocurrency is literally like an eight-year-old’s concept of an evil businessman. He just plugs his pollution machine in and gets money for it. It doesn’t make anything, it just. Pollutes. And makes money. Like a fucking Captain Planet villain”

Does it bother anyone else that in Paul Simon’s song “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover” he really only tells you 7 or 8 ways over and over?

Note to self: it’s OK to work on learning several new things at one time. It’s neither too hard for you, nor does it mean you’re scatterbrained. They used to give you like six classes in one day when you were in school, and you did fine.
