I just had a weirdly vivid dream where I made a keyboard with keycaps made of watermelon. The action was a little heavy, though very satisfying. It was also very tasty, except the top row, which was a little underripe.

Adults who write everything in cursive should be prompted to reconsider their life choices

How much space will be freed up once Britain leaves the EU? 

I feel like the fact that 'federated' is a buzzword for internet technologies is pretty silly. Shouldn't everything be federated? Isn't the point of the internet to be inter-networked?

One of the most motivating experiences in my life is passing by heavy traffic in a bus while working on my laptop.

After 12 hours of struggling, I've finally switched my desktop from ubuntu to arch, and the difference in touchscreen support between gnome 3.28 and 3.32 is incredible. These changes alone have made this whole change worth the effort.

I'm writing a technical paper on the terminology of modularity and I was wondering if anyone knew:

From what I can tell, tabs vs spaces is basically LF vs CR LF in that its an easily convertable difference that mainly just exists because of legacy. We (kinda) solved one of these already, so how hard could the other be?
To avoid starting a civil war, I won't say which is the analog of which, but I think we all know deep down in our hearts.

If I officially register my religion as Stallmanism, are public schools and government bureaus not allowed to force me to submit Microsoft Word documents?

I'm coining a new term

Why are phone keyboards at the bottom of the screen? Wouldn't it make more sense to put them at the top so people can hold their phones in the middle? It would be cool to see a 90° rotated keyboard too, for one-handed typing, though I'm not sure if it would be easier to use.

It feels like there's so much information floating around on the internet that its almost irresponsible to release content that hasn't been revised or edited, especially when you have a large audience. The example that comes to mind is YouTube. There should be a rating system for how time-efficient videos are.

I'm much more excited for Pokemon Masters than I am for Sword and Shield. Mainline Pokemon games suck.

They say a cluttered desk is the sign of a cluttered mind, so why is it that no matter how clean I make my desk, my head is still an overstimulated hell factory.
