Trivia fact that I told someone about at NYCBSDCon: the habit of using (via) to correctly attribute links comes from a still-online-but-not-functioning site called The Nonist. The fellow putting it together had the most wonderful ability to find esoteric, interesting items to read about. I can’t match his talent for images. The Wayback Machine has a copy of the Nonist site so you can see it in its original glory.
To the (text-only) links!
- English minus the non-Germanic words. (via)
- ‘Tainted Love’, played via floppy drive.
- Unix: When to look for a new job.
- The Dreamliner’s latest in-flight emergency. I’m not that interested in the article, but I like the quote from the place where I found it linked: “The Internet of Rebooting Things”.
- Android is becoming unforkable. (via) The article doesn’t mention Cyanogen or Replicant when it’s talking about ‘alternative’ strategies for Android development; I’m curious what to make of them.
- Broken by design: systemd. (via)
- A followup: Why systemd is winning. (via) ‘winning because nobody else showed up to the game’. Not a direct quote, but a summary.
- Bunnie Huang’s Name That Ware February 2014 is a mystery to me, but it’s oddly pretty.
- 3D versions of D&D Monster Manual creatures from Patrick Farley. (via)
- A Vim tutorial and primer. (via)
- ICMP types in IPv6.
- An objective points-based system for keyboards. “KLACKY keyboards feel great but they will get you knifed in the back by the people who work near you.”
- Hello boss… Something happened…
- All IBM training videos should be this awesome.
Your unrelated link of the week: If I met you at NYCBSDCon last week, did I seem like a mature adult? I’m not. Here’s Deer Fart.wmv.
