If you want the Linux-circa-2004 experience back, just try Linux on ARM!

* everything compiles slowly
* distro-hopping to find better hardware support
* oops, you need proprietary drivers for that
* forum posts hold the authoritative documentation *and* code for your distro


It seems there's a lot of interest in continuing work on Guile Emacs, since it keeps coming up on Reddit and Hacker News and everyone is lamenting the fact that there are too few Scheme hackers and they don't seem to be interested in the project. (Someone even offered to fund it.)

Right now I'm seriously considering starting a revival project. Is anyone here interested in such a venture?

An understated advantage of two-column papers is that they're very easy to read on a smartphone screen.

An ESCHER SENTENCE is a sentence that initially seems acceptable, but on closer reading, doesn't make any sense - such as "More people have been to Russia than I have".

Damn, I just realised that reactive GUI is the perfect use-case for multimethods.

Oh god oh fuck someone overheard me saying nyaaa~ out loud to myself and gave me a nasty look and hastily walked away.

People whine and moan about it on Hacker News and Twitter, declare that they're leaving Firefox behind, then *poof*. Business as usual, no lessons learnt. As such, Firefox's market share has been in a constant decline since v4 all because Mozilla refuses to acknowledge that the market already has five Chromes and doesn't need a sixth. Just... why?

continues the war against their own users.
I've been using Firefox since v2 and I haven't heard a single good news about Firefox since v4 came out.
Every few months they do something outrageous like removing customisability/configurability features (the sole things that distinguish Firefox from others for me and many other people) or breaking the interface for no reason other than trying to ape Chrome. And then it blows over. People just accept Mozilla's fuckups and move on. Repeat.
