In march I made a tomagotchi in JS...it is brutally hard. I can't keep it alive for longer than about a minute.

For the past month or so I’ve been unable to find nutritional yeast (one of the corner stones of my mostly vegan family). I wonder what percentage of folks newly buying it are super disappointed when they try to make bread with it?

Turkish garbage collectors open a library for all of the books citizens discard in their trash.

software release 

Just did my first "real" release! It's something I think other people could *actually* use, and it's written in (I'm pretty sure) POSIX shell. I present:
MRGRCTRNL
a configurable multi-machine ssh tunneler.

This release adds autossh support.

I told my three month old daughter the sum of what I know of the world after close to 32 years: dogs good, people bad.

Does anyone know the thinking behind the prevalent pattern during login where username and password entry are split across 2 different views? It seems like everything does it now, but I don't get the benefit -- nor do I really see a dark pattern at play. It is seemingly just slower UX?

Every-time I reread Charlotte Brontë’s *Villette* I think about what a bad ass spy novel Brontë would have written had the genre been invented yet.

Are there storytellers that you think would have rocked in other mediums, or genres had they been available to them?

An Interview w/Don Woods:

> Before brainfuck and Befunge, there was INTERCAL. Its revival in 1990 by ESR may mark the beginning of the esolang movement, but the language dates back to 1972, when it was created in a famous late-night session at Princeton by Don Woods and Jim Lyon. The original version INTERCAL (sometimes called INTERCAL 72) is a rich parody with a more chaotic sense of play than its later revivals.

all the sliding blackboards just keep sliding to reveal more blackboards. go deep enough and you'll find last lecture's notes, and the ones before them, and so on and so forth. eventually you find notes in dead languages, then in archaic alphabets, then in pictographs.

then a long zone of blankness.

then english, but with a strange affect and a few letters (or punctuation?) you don't recognize.

then static, rendered lovingly in chalk.

A > B > A > B > A > B > A > B > A > B > A > B > A > B > A > B > A > B > A > B > A > B > A > B > ...but memory is infinite, so this is fine

We just released another Glitch app! This one takes a Write.as post and transforms it into a customizable web page. Just write something, add a little CSS, & you're on your way!

hello-writeas-webpage.glitch.m

This app is powered by a new feature in the latest #WriteFreely release — an API endpoint that turns Markdown into HTML. Learn more about WriteFreely v0.12 here: blog.writefreely.org/version-0
