you know when a cat realizes that youre trying to take it to the vet? i think pretty soon planet earth is gonna start doing that

There was one really obnoxious guy in college that was trash to me and others in high school. He always wore headphones through class, so I would SSH into the Mac at his desk and run "say" to talk to him. He was freaked out that the machine was talking to him and nobody believed him, since he had headphones in.

I also tediously figured out the Mac OS commands to take a selfie of him with the webcam and set it as his desktop background, all over SSH.

it's amazing how often you read some news story which simply doesn't make sense, like the sentences in the news article just don't connect together in a way that can be comprehended, and then you realize its because the story is based entirely on information released by the police

The most chilling video of the floods I've seen so far is this one where a rescue team is going through a submerged town on their boat, screaming to ask if anyone's still there

Just got a copy of How to blow up a pipeline!!! Let's see if it comes up to my expectations :3

The book is Writing GNU Emacs Extensions, by Bob Glickstein. Thanks for the recommendation, @mgdelacroix :3

I'm reading this 25-year old book on how to write extensions for Emacs and it's incredibly good. How is it possible that I'm enjoying writing a major mode for editing crosswords? Nobody knows, but I am.

@s_ol Hey, I was browsing your website and found an error in your portfolio page. See attached screenshot. Do you need me to copy paste the error?

It's finally time! the 0xC.pad is available *now* from me (assembled) & four other vendors (as a DIY kit)!✨

➡️ s-ol.nu/0xC.pad/buy

It's a 12-key macropad with hexagonal keycaps that I designed as well. It runs on an integrated ATMega32U2 microcontroller and QMK out of the box.

This is the very first time I'm selling something I built with my own hands, so I'm super excited (and a bit nervous)! I'd really appreciate a retoot for this one ❤️

@xiroux Yes. Although that same night this clip went viral and the residents erupted in protest, and the government relented ... temporarily.

Lots of homes were destroyed with no notice. People weren't even given enough time to quickly empty their houses of their belongings and all of it was crushed underneath the rubble of their homes.

Today marks 2 years since demolitions were announced in Gujjar Nala in the dead of night, at the time when most of Karachi was submerged during the monsoon-induced urban flooding of 2020.

Translated: "The District Commissioner has an announcement. Everyone whose home is encroaching on the drain should find alternative living arrangements as their homes will be demolished by 7AM"

It's nice to remember the original slogan of the internet

I just finished War with the Newts, a scifi novel written in 1936 by Karel Čapek. I read this Spanish edition with the original illustrations by Hans Ticha, which are absolutely amazing. The story is great, but the writing is even better. It's also super funny.
If you're looking for something interesting and easy to read, take a look at this.

I'm really enjoying Papers, please. All the stories are great and the characters are soooo good. I particularly love this guy <3
