[20:39] When I highlight a URL in my text editor and paste the selection into Chrome's address bar (all running on top of X), then hit enter, Chrome will somehow lose the colon in the URL and ends up helpless, looking for a server called https. Even more weird is that this only happens occasionally.
[20:46] Homeless man begging for Ethereum. Address covered, unfortunately. This might actually have been helpful for this guy. Comments are pretty outspoken due to this.
Update: I missed the poster replying to the comments. Here's the photo with the address visible.
[15:02] If a textfile begins with
if Ubuntu recognizes it as "amiga soundtracker audio", no matter the rest of the content. This is weird.
[18:48] Now this is a real nerd's website if I've ever seen one. Nice! I guess I'll spend quite some time digging around there.
[18:42] Dave Cheney explains why ~ is equal to $HOME and how hjkl came to be the cursor keys in vi.
[18:38] Mentioned the Excel challenge to a colleague - he knew a cheat. :D
[03:26] Oh, by the way, the MS Office Championship reminds me of the guy who scrolled through all the lines of Excel. Which in turn reminds me of another guy who made a video of himself watching one of those 10hrs cuts of Nyan Cat.
All. Ten. Hours.
[19:56] Wikiverse is "an interactive 3D visualization of Wikipedia".
[19:55] concentration is a Python script that will blacklist any given website via
/etc/hosts while at work, and allows to break concentration for a time and access said websites.
[20:41] Dio is on tour again. Sort of. The thing is, Dio died in 2010. So now he is on stage as a hologram. This was done already last year, including a bit of interaction with the audience. Way before this, in 2012, a Tupac hologram performed with Snoop Dogg.
And let's not forget Hatsune Miku. I saw recordings of two of her concerts. Really impressive technology.
[20:26] A really detailed description of what happens when you type a URL in your address bar and press enter.
[20:21] Helped moving a couch today. While we took a short break on the stairway (no elevator!) the other guy who lent a hand started quoting the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, referring to the Chesterfield. Again: fellow nerd, unexpected place.
