[22:30] I have my own server now. Makes me feel like one of the cool kids. 8)
[18:14] And while we're at old-ish virtual terminals: TrueType VT220 Font. (see also)
[19:21] Cool! ~nossidge on tilde.town made a list of pretty much all users on all of the tilde servers.
[10:43] Apparently, it is internaut's day today. Didn't hear or read about that one before. I should make a list of stuff like that.
This seems the right moment to recommend birthday, which is useful to keep track of any kinds of recurrent events.
[21:48] Using computers a lot, I grew pretty fond of standards. The other day I found out that there are also fan developed building standards for Lego creations.
[18:53] gmb initially was a tool to generate a quasi-endless one page blog, but if it is used for long enough a time or many times a day, the output file might (will) grow huge, so I'm currently implementing an archive and the option to remove older entries from the index page.
I'm also using functions, so stuff like rss or the archive can easily be toggled in the config file. (Yes, gmb is growing up. It now has a config file.)
[11:51] Ouch. I just noticed that the output of img2html is totally messed up in Chrome. Damn. Looked all right in Firefox. I'll have to take a look at the CSS.
Update, 2016-12-29:Finally took a look at the CSS and fixed it within less than a minute (in which I also googled how to copy/paste in nano). Talking about tardy bugfixes ...
[11:46] I like it when computers do weird, unexpected things. In this case, it had something to do with anti-aliasing and was pretty easy to fix, but it was quite a surprise when it happened out of the blue. (screenshot of this site)
[12:25] I can hardly tell how much I detest websites that override my input. When I middle click a link, I want it to open in a new tab, obviously. Who are these guys to decide that instead the link is opened in the same tab, thereby, in this case, fucking up my search results? Argh!
[09:31] On some occasions, I really feel particularly nerdy. The other day I was pondering a change of my general attire and not a minute later and basically still on the same topic I decided that an own server might proof useful.
[12:20] I'm still not sure whether I love or hate LaTeX, but it is a great tool to work with.
[12:06] Working in a public library today. Was hard to find in the first place, as it is located in the uppermost floor of a mall, even above the parking deck. Also, wifi is just as unstable as it is slow. However, the librarians are quite friendly, so I might return.
[12:10] Co-working spaces are fascinating places to be at. (Even though I'm feeling a bit lost with my ThinkPad -- there's almost only MacBooks around. Creepy.)
