German medieval city of #Rothenburg ob der Tauber in #infrared. It's a bit of a tourist trap, but there are some lovely, intimate corners, too.

Imeoidh an seanfhear atá cráite liath,
Imeoidh an fhuiseog is áilne ar an gcraoibh,
Imeoidh an duine óg is a cháil ina dhiaidh
Imeoidh a dtiocfaidh is a dtáinig ariamh.

The old man, grey with torment, will go,
The most beautiful skylark on the branch will go,
The young man will go, and his reputation will follow him,
All that ever will come and has come will go.

@paul yeah, I was just looking at someone's wiki who didn't display at all in netsurf because it's all javascript and css3 shit.

in regards to the design of tools, among other things:

striving to design a set of intuitive, repeatable implementation details is probably more valuable in the long-term than designing a piece of software which serves as an implementation in isolation.

If anything, that software will likely serve best as a playground for exploration, uncovering the problems and solutions that will comprise a set of meaningful and enduring implementation details.

I guess, the words "in isolation" are a little bit misplaced here, because none of the machines I've listed are truly capable of replicating themselves without the help of at least one other machine in the list, and in some cases even then there are likely incompatibilities amidst some combinations.

What are some machines that could hypothetically be utilized in isolation to create copies of themselves?

A few I can think of: the lathe, the computer (theoretically), some living things

realizing those things about oneself that allow one not to go back, and to know, finally, that you were not at all what you had seemed.
