What's with this about "abolish the 80-column rule and write all your text in one line, allowing the machine to auto-wrap"?

I hear it once in a blue moon, and I can understand it for like, mobile phones, but this is a meme, right?

I remember on , it wasn't uncommon for people to put "FOLLOWS YOU" on the top of their bio, in an attempt to draw in unconscious/ instinctive follow"back"s.

Man that place was gross.

Working to revive my blog

I wrote the last post in february 2019

I used Fossil instead of git because I wanted to be cool so now I only have a very old version of it

Support for image titles and descriptions were added.

I mean, a hairdryer is pretty much mandatory for an electronic repair shop.

"Secrets That Are Meant To Be Found", or human-decodable ciphers, are pretty fun to think about.

Sometimes I just want to make big worldwide scavenger hunts, but I don't know how to end things and you'd just get like, a t-shirt if you won.

New #emacs #blog post: "State of Emacs Lisp on Guile":

#Guile is a #Scheme that gets a disproportionate amount of attention when mentioned with Emacs in a sentence. I'm sick of the occasional r/emacs or emacs-devel thread with little facts and much speculation, so here's some original research of what you can and can not do with Guile's Emacs Lisp implementation.

If Burger King doesn't have a secret sauce called "Whopping Cream" I'll be so disappointed.

I don't talk with people cause I don't know how to stop talking with people.

An is a Japanese animation, but how exactly does it differ from western cartoons? I'll be blunt and assume "Anime is a subclass of Cartoon", so with that out of the way:

An anime is...
