… and more!


I've been on a bit of a rabbit hole lately about how other types of engineers (carpenters, metalworkers, clockmakers, etc) use, buy, build, and share tools; really interesting similarities and differences with software engineers

It's days like this that we have to remember the progressivism is not inevitable.

Treesitter integration alone is reason enough to be tempted to move from vim to neovim

TIL The war of 1812 in North America started the same week as Napoleon's invasion of Russia

We should really be asking why gas prices are still so damn low given that we're driving the planet over a climate cliff.

The experience of going to the post office feels like it hasn't changed in over a century… Between modern supermarkets with self-checkout machines and the ubiquity of ATMs in banks, post offices just feel absolutely archaic; like I'm stepping back into an old butcher or greengrocer

Started a new hobby this year: basketry. This is my fourth attempt, and first that I'm truly happy with. Still doesn't have a flat bottom, but oh well

Each Tory prime minister is worse than the previous. On the one hand I hope Boris goes this week, on the other hand I cannot fathom what ghoul'll replace him.

I just don't understand people who make off-hand comments saying that the Queen has never worked a day in her life. I'm no monarchist but I think she's had a very demanding job. Do people think meeting ministers and diplomats, meeting the public, and attending events is all fun? Not a job I'd ever want

I have never understood why online store given an option to filter by colour, but not by a myriad of other far more useful options. This gift I'm trying to buy, I don't care whether it's aimed at a toddler or a middle aged bloke, whether it's big or small, as long as it's blue. That's all that matters; that it be BLUE.

I wonder if there was a point in history, after the invention of pottery but before refined oils, where every recipe would have required rendering animal fat or toasting a nut paste to fry, or whether cooking just wasn't as developed in what would have been some time around the late neolithic

Typical. Any discussion of banning weapons of war isn't even had because it's so futile. Instead, the proposed solution is more surveillance of our communication. Would anyone blame the postal service if these messages had gone via snail mail? Then don't turn the blame on facebook.

The new tube map is an absolute disgrace. Everything, literally everything in this country is for sale. The Santander bikes and Emirates cable car were bad enough, but to put corporate branding on the official tube map. Harry Beck is rolling in his grave today.

TIL That one of the Conservative members of the House of Lords is the grandson of Clement Atlee, the post-war Labour PM that gave us the NHS. Their family motto is literally "Labour conquers all".

Today's been a scorcher and it's killed all my seedlings. Now I'm sad.

Why doesn't Joe Manchin just deflect to the GOP already -- if you're not going to vote with the party why even be in one?
