You know, I never really mentioned before, but can I just say that it's really really really good?

Because it's pretty darn good. It's like GUI but without the bad parts.

Also, these example programs are too good.

It's September 1st. Close enough to Autumn.

My Halloween theme is live, along with a new article! 🎃 🍂

Someone on here said something about "non-tech mailing lists"

I was talking a while ago about missing forum sites.

There's probably a reason this hasn't been done, but...

What if there was this forum-ish website software, where, instead of using your email to make an account, sending an email is the way you reply to a thread in a collection of "topics" (each "topic" is its own mailing list)

Sometimes pictures speak louder than words (another . This one's about )

The website for Oikospiel is the stuff of dreams. This is how is *supposed* to be used. I actually *like* the JS on this site (yes, me!)
The is super simple, too.
I'm so sad the game isn't available on / , though (I really like David Kanaga's music).

Built one! Still Can't do an Ollie, but it feels good to do something besides computer science for once.

(Of course, one of my main motives is to better understand how a piece of intelligence "unconsciously" learns new skills via repetition & negative reaction, so arguably this is just algorithm research)

I need looser-fitting pants.

I might temporarily change my avatar to this. Not now, but someday.

I thought this guy was holding a juice box at first & I was totally sold.

The Backyard theme - A colour theme that only uses background colours (for when your current colour theme just isn't annoying enough)

Cleaning up & found that I still have my first computer program (C++). I wrote it long before I got my first computer.

Proud that I numbered my lines, but disappointed I didn't use different colored pens for syntax highlighting.

Sometime last year I got this china cabinet from my great uncle. It was nice but didn't come with the key, so I went out & found these little lion face knobs for the doors.

I'm just waiting for guix to upgrade my stuff, and am posting to pass the time (and I really like these knobs).

Also, and I usually don't say things like this, so it's a bit out of character, but does the sky in this shot say " "?

I'm unfamiliar with the flag pattern.

According to , it's ergonomically efficient to tilt your wrists *upward*!

I may not be an expert in ergonomics, but I strongly disagree with Asus. Upward-tilting keyboards are so the typist can see button labels, but they *DO* put strain on your wrists. Does anyone else have an opinion on this?
