@feonixrift I got a Boox Note 2 after reading your thoughts on it, and it is very much my cup of jam. Thank you!
Mikel Evins explains eloquently how the design
of old-style Lisp and Smalltalk systems create an extremely fun sort of programming: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=23811382
Great thread from @AnandWrites@twitter.com :
A basic confusion has wrought so much destruction in American life.
A lot of venture capitalists tricked themselves, and then others, into thinking that they are thinkers.
You might find, as I did, that if you bought https://itch.io/b/520/bundle-for-racial-justice-and-equality (there's still 5 hours left! ), that their UI is totally inadequate to handle the bundle.

I find this mythical past of non-political spaces to be hilarious and would like to subscribe to your comedy routine.
When people talk about "politics," they are usually referring to the controversial bits, not the 90% dull regulation and process that makes a country run.
People tend to assume broad agreement on what is or isn't controversial, though.
I saw dozens of cops at the event yesterday. Cops on motorcycles, who stood stoicly as Black protesters screamed "fuck the police". Cops holding traffic at intersections. There was no violence in those cases.
The violence started when the cops *drove vehicles through crowds*.
It was previously using the original hacked up Debian maintained by a volunteer. I am really grateful to mrfixit2001 for their efforts, but I'm also happy to have hardware support in the official kernel too.
I had to do some minor hackery to get the upgrade image to work, though. Probably because I installed it on a 4gb sdcard.
#Trump just gave a very "Reichstag fire" speech. The military is being deployed on American soil to "fight terrorism." Antifa specifically called out as domestic terrorists.
Zero mention of police brutality or systematic oppression. Nothing about how we got here.
Hopes for an election at the end of the year are dwindling.
@ElfLord needed a way to figure out how much fabric to buy for a sewing project, based on the pieces she needed to cut. Surprisingly, I couldn't find a website or app to calculate this. YouTube videos seemed to suggest that the best approach was to print templates and do it all by hand.
So… long story short, this is what I spent my three-day weekend doing 😅 https://nolanlawson.github.io/fabric-calculator/
