I'm still subscribed to xkcd's RSS feed because it's easier to click 'read' every other day than to dig into the feeds list and scroll to the bottom and unsubscribe.

Somebody added a command line option to gnu ls which is --dereference-command-line-symlink-to-dir and I'm like, do you want skynet, because this is how you get skynet. The intersection of getopt and NLP should be the empty set.

This HN thread about whether it's conceivable for people to drink milk or whether the Starbucks recipe for latte is the definition of the drink is the perfect reading for a lazy Saturday afternoon.

Today in #Android is awful: turned on an old tablet and need to push it through three OS updates. No way to simply install the latest. During each update, it spends many more minutes "optimizing" my apps, making the whole process take far longer. And utterly useless, since all the apps are going to be updated next.

Anyway, I used to get paystubs emailed to me in the form of a password protected pdf. The password was your last name. The point wasn't impenetrable security, but to make it so you wouldn't accidentally open someone else's file with just a double click in case they clicked forward on the wrong email or some other silly mistake.

Failed at the very adult task of moving clothes from the washer to the dryer in a timely manner, so now it's dank week here in the house of honk.

I can't believe Twitter is only 2.7 KB of compressed javascript. For reference, honk includes 2.5 KB of compressed js. They're really doing wonders fighting the bloat.

Washington Post reviewed 14 brands of tortilla chips, and spoiler alert, Whole Foods and Trader Joe's house brands were the four worst in the bunch with some very low scores. Costco number two, classic tostitos number three. Corn santitas for the win (by a point; 1, 2, 3 were all close.)
