No, I don't understand this Gruber guy either.

In related news, the Soviet Union criticizes the West because in one country, the ruling party of the day rigged one election (before the result being nullified under media pressure). Yohnov Grubychek, a long-time Soviet fanboyik, blogs that this is more proof the West is open and the Soviet single-party system is too controlling.

mtl consists of a lot of modules which are all empty. They import each other back and forth, forming a beautiful fractal. Amazingly, the package provides actual functions with actual implementations, despite the functions being impossible to find in the source code. An emergent consciousness? I think so.

You can only observe mtl's true nature out of the corner of your eye. If you look directly at it, you risk being pulled in and lost forever.

A very good illustration of HTTP status code 417. More in the Flickr album.

In the way typical for less, you scroll a manpage with J, K, space, and so on. Conflictingly, you scroll in your terminal emulator with the mouse wheel, S-PgUp, and the like.

I'd like a pager and terminal that don't do the same thing in two disharmonic ways. Though I'm not sure what exactly could be a solution.

From our department of hasta la vista, babe

One episode Summer Glau goes bananas and starts hunting John Connor. Two episodes later she loses her memory and thinks she's a human.

Those terminators seem to be unsafe machines likely to go wrong in dangerous ways--I bet they are not programmed in Haskell.

But we can do something about that, right fellows!

Nice phrasing: "Circumstances then began to build fairly rapidly." (I.e. fit hit the shan.)

From the department of dude's got style

"He bought a large safe, moved it into a small room of the house, narrowed the size of the room's door, refused to pay for the safe, and invited the owner to repossess it but warned him not to mar the house."

A funny story in very good writing.

Very nicely put, +Dave Fayram:

I am sort of unhappy to be back on my mac after the new lenovo stopped booting. The font rendering and my photography tools are fantastic on the Mac, but I really really miss the no-holds-barred productivity power of the Xmonad configuration I was building. It was not pretty or ugly, it was just my app windows being accurately and deftly managed without ceremony.

I'm not afraid to start saying I want to go back to the linux world. It is uglier, sometimes things are inconvenient, and I know design guys sprain their eyes rolling them at me... but what I want is a thing that lets me compute and not experience some kind of continuous polite fiction. I am surely not asking for what the vast majority of computer users is asking for, and I'm okay with that.

Ceremony is what sells machines. (Looking at you, Apple.) But a few people find ceremony to be in the way, and we have reasons for that. So we use a tiling window manager.

I feel Linux lets me put the wood on the workbench and saw it. The other two OSes have a well-meaning but sluggish woodworker who tries to follow my descriptions, while I can't touch the material.

From our bikeshedding department

"Of all the wonderful feats I have performed, since I have been in this part of the world, I think yesterday I performed the most wonderful. I produced unanimity among 15 men who were all quarrelling about that most ticklish subject--taste." (sez teh 19th-century engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel)
