TIL there exists an "iPad Pro" with up to a terabyte of storage. Apparently Apple doesn't want people to have any reason to have a laptop unless they're a developer, thus completing their segregation the computing population into "users", whose entire computing experience is controlled by one company, and "developers" who are enslaved to that company, at least if they want to reach those users.
Tomorrow’s date will be written as an eight-digit palindrome around the world, the first time this has happened in 900 years.
The coincidence is rare because countries use differing conventions. February 2, 2020, is a palindrome whether expressed as day/month/year (02/02/2020), month/day/year (02/02/2020), or year/month/day (2020/02/02).
This happened last on November 11, 1111, and it won’t happen again until March 3, 3030.

Returned back to #xterm. Have gone on a journey when it comes to terminal emulators. Stayed wit urxvt for a certain amount of time, but now all my machines run good old xterm
@moonbolt it was made in 2011, back when flash was still pretty popular
and it's an exe because double clicking an exe is easier than installing the desktop flash player and running it
@lynnesbian why is this an executable?? wtf
why isn't it just, like, a webpage. with a very small amount of js, and you ignore the js and inspect element to change the text because fuck js.
but, no, it's a swf?? that got hidden inside an exe??? what the actual fuck
