What local youtubers do you watch that might not be known outside your country? I just watched this one here in Singapore, that was quite funny. youtu.be/k0m8-KYmvgU

Poll question: do you listen to the lyrics of music you're listening to?

I rarely do. I can listen to a song many times and I might be able to tell you a few words of the chorus but that's pretty much it. I really prefer that as I find lyrics to be somewhat distracting.

I've heard people tell me that they can't avoid listening to lyrics. I've noted that I end up hearing them more if the lyrics are in Swedish, so perhaps it has something to do with what your native language is?

Podcasts needs to stop making it so hard to find the RSS feeds.
Also: Soundcloud and iTunes are annoying.

No biking today. My dropper post broke on my last ride and now I have to get a new one. That'll be several hundred dollars.

Here's what I have been working on. My Maxima client application now has the ability to take notes, and copy equations from the interactions into the document.

Already when we were in our 20's some friends and I concluded that being a Milk Farmer is probably a much more relaxing and easy job than computers.

After working for weeks on a new feature (optimised scrolling in McCLIM), I created a pull request on Github, and wait for it to be merged.

The next day, a maintainer quickly tests the code and points out some visual artefacts.

Looking at the code again, I realised that the entire concept behind the idea is fundamentally broken, the reviewers problems possibly, but not necessarily related to this flaw.

At this point I reverted the entire feature.

reasons to use Alpine Linux:

• get to use Linux without using GNU, and then be a smartass to everyone who corrects you by saying "GNU/Linux"

• to be continued
