[02:08] Fixed a little bug in the function generating my RSS feed. I'm pretty sure this was when I broke it. The line numbers to delete are hardcoded, so as soon as all older posts not yet containing the publication date were gone the thing was bound to break. Which, due to my recently pretty low frequency of posting here, took a while.
I'll need to take another look at the script. It still works fairly decent, but it is pretty obvious that I had hardly any experience scripting when I wrote this. Also I have no idea what some of the variable names I chose even mean.
[23:38] Just finished watching "missing" on Netflix. Interesting concept: The entire movie takes place on the screens of various computers, phones et cetera. New to me, but apparently this is a thing: it's called screenlife.
Also not a bad movie.
[22:08] A mechanical implementation of Conway's Game of Life, built using Lego. Also recommend a look at the other videos on this channel. (see also, see also)

[22:43] Oh, very cool: this 404 page contains a text adventure. Was fun to play. (I'm a little torn between "a status page should be obvious" and "let's make our websites more fun", but I really like the idea.)
[19:25] With the whole world interconnected visiting servers and websites all over the planet has become commonplace. But getting an email from someone on the other side of the big pond still feels special.
