Today on :
When PC games recognise the Pause/Break key.
I remember that Escape would bring up the game menu and Pause would simply pause the game in Microsoft Studios games.

If you don't know where to start, but like my open-source work, my tutorials or my posts here...

Consider sponsoring me a cup of tea a month. I greatly appreciate it 😋

It's literally two clicks: github.com/sponsors/muesli

Maesie the Cat just loves to sleep on my Macbook for some reason. So I looked up how to disable the keyboard while she is on it, and, lo and behold, I found this:

when you're at a job interview and they ask you what your best qualities are

I just read "thread-send" as "threat-sent"... I need to get more sleep.

okay i can't do any more of this, but, again, if you do not like being exploited, don't let yourself be exploited:

1. don't contribute to 'open core' software projects

2. don't reassign your copyrights

3. carefully weigh the value you derive from contribution to a project against the possibility that any of the key players in the space may use your contribution to profit

4. if you don't feel happy about the way things are going in a project, walk.

i did it with Alpine. some say that was one of the stupidest decisions I've ever made, but my happiness is more important than Docker's bottom line.

Genie: You have ONE WISH.

Me: Alright, I have one, but it's very detailed.
Genie: As long as it is only one wish, you're allowed to spend as much time as you want detailing it.

Me: Alright, here we go. *Grabs notebook and takes a deep breath* The key words MUST, MUST NOT, REQUIRED, SHALL, SHALL NOT, SHOULD, SHOULD NOT, RECOMMENDED, MAY, and OPTIONAL are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

Genie: Wait, is that...?

Me: *Flips notebook* Chapter 1. Preamble.

I think dithering is a criminally overlooked aspect of pixelated aesthetics (retro or not) and I wish it would be more appreciated.

i might have asked this before, but anyone have any documentation on how to make line&mark (?) oriented user interfaces in emacs?

like how package.el, mu4e, elfeed etc work.

#emacs

the file is named ^J (linefeed/newline), but will typing ^M (carriage return because typewriters, CTRL+M) work to run it?

Yes (UNIX terminals kinda just interpret ^M as ^J... I wonder if I can name a file ^M and have it be VERY ANNOYING. WHY YES!)
