I’ve decided to . Four PRs to open source projects this month.

Should I , too? One ink work per day, I think.

I don't use or recommend Google, so I don't say, "Google X!" Instead, it's something like, "search for X". Less precise and maybe more clumsy.

's home page now suggests "Duck it!" as an alternative. Glad they're thinking about this, but will anyone know what I'm talking about?

Today at The Company, we bust bots. 🤖🚫

Why didn't the '60s work better? Can we try again?

One of RMS’s last events as FSF president.

Just noticed terminators' teeth look human even when their skin is scraped off.

Finally managed to properly set up an NginX reverse proxy with TLS for multiple sites. Wow! That one held me up for weeks. Mostly was stuck because of one line!

Just had my first VR experience with the Oculus Go: "Dark Shapes," a refugee story based on "The Wretched and the Beautiful" by E. Lily Yu, at the Wing Luke Museum in Seattle. What an incredible technology and powerful medium for this story! I'm going to pay much more careful attention to VR in the future.

If you want your VM to fill its window size instead of being scaled to an inset box, install Guest Additions! It'll fill the window or full screen without stretching.
