[10:11] Basic HTML Competency is the New Punk Folk Explosion (via)
Update: Link is dead, look here instead.
[21:13] Watching a stream from 33c3 right now (this one). Weird art stuff in a browser. For example, take a look at wwwwwwwww.jodi.org, which is a total mess. Then look at the source. They said they forgot to close the tags. Fascinating outcome, however accidental it may be.
The talk will appear there sooner or later.
Update: There you go.
[21:33] Found some old nineties eurodance and was inspired to do this. And for reasons I cannot really fathom, I like this mess.
[18:36] Okay. Forget the Winamp Classic skin that I linked to at the very beginning of this blog. Instead, take a look at this!
[20:24] And since I just found the tab among the dozens opened: if you are interested in astronomy, you may want to take a look at Galaxy Zoo and help classify galaxies. By hand.
[20:21] Changing the way gmb prints timestamps. I like the way SoC does it more, because it allows for use without any CSS. My current output looks terrible when the entry begins with a hyperlink, because it may not be easy to distinguish it from the timestamp/permalink. And as I am feeling more and more uneasy with CSS and intend to go all plain HTML, I better change it.
[22:46] What is it with people porting $program to the web? New candidate: Browsix, promising to run UNIX in the browser. I don't feel good about this.
[09:50] Turns out that the blog is not the main feature in Wordpress. :D
[17:42] I always wondered why $ pstook arguments in a different style than most other programs. Without a leading dash, that is. And then there are applications accepting arguments with double dashes followed by entire words instead of single letters. This confused me a bit.
Yesterday an article I read pointed me to the answer: the syntax without any dashes is BSD style, while double dashes are more of a GNU thing. Single dash and single, yet combinable letters are a legacy of UNIX.
[13:31] Gravity Falls is great fun.
[20:45] I found this very detailed explanation of htop. Much to learn there, definitely a recommended read.
