Lazy Reading for 2017/05/21

The weather’s nice, so the links are light.  Well, they were, then I got some reading done, and now we have a good-size list.

Your unrelated link of the week: Roads & Kingdoms Breakfast.  Food and a story every weekday.

Lazy Reading for 2017/05/14

Reader suggestions always make me happy.

Lazy Reading for 2017/05/07

Accidental topic this week: text interfaces!

Your unrelated video of the week: DOUBLE KING.  (via multiple places)

Lazy Reading for 2017/04/30

April over already?

Lazy Reading for 2017/04/23

Eclectic!  I cover everything this week: computer history, modern pessimistic computing, odd hardware, strange software stories, comics, and tea.

Your sorta-a-comics-link of the week: Liartown USA, the book.

Lazy Reading for 2017/04/16

A little heavy on the history this week.  And no tea!

Your unrelated food link of the week: Eating In Translation.  This person seeks out new places, eats there, and makes notes, and has been doing it for more than a decade.  The result is the most in-depth informal food guide I’ve ever seen.  It’s NYC focused, but not exclusively.

A slightly UK-ish tilt this week, by accident of course.

Lazy Reading for 2017/04/02

I’m very UNIXy this week.

Your useful tip of the week: Setting the root login’s ‘full name’ to identify the machine that sent email.  This makes so much sense.  (via)

Lazy Reading for 2017/03/26

Old-school UNIX and games this week.

Lazy Reading for 2017/03/19

Technical details week for Lazy Reading.

Your unrelated tea link of the week: Haha, one of the world’s best tea houses is in my town.  It’s Leaf Tea Bar, and Niraj is one of the nicest guys.  His prices are reasonable for the quality of the tea, too.

Your related bug link of the week: Teeth of the DragonFly.  (via)

 

Lazy Reading for 2017/03/12

I had overflow from last week, so I have a good list for you, despite being offline for days.

Your unrelated tea link of the day: defining what it means when you read “mug of tea” vs “cup of tea”.  You’d think it was interchangeable, but the meanings diverge.  (PDF, via)

Lazy Reading for 2017/03/05

A little meta, this week.

Your unrelated tea link of the week: In Sri Lanka’s Tea Paradise, A Social Enterprise Is Brewing.  I actually heard about the quality of the tea (very good) before I heard about the way the company was formed.  Consider where your next tea purchase comes from, in light of this.

Lazy Reading for 2017/02/26

Another diverse link week, hooray!

Your unrelated item of the week: How Wegmans inspired the most rabid fanbase in the grocery world.  I live in the town where Wegmans started.  “Grocery fanbase” is a relative thing, but: yes, they are that good.

 

Lazy Reading for 2017/02/19

It’s Lazy Reading Science week!

Your unrelated link of the day: Assault Trombone.  Even if this was lethal, I couldn’t take it seriously.  (via)

Lazy Reading for 2017/02/12

It’s all twofer links this week.

Your unrelated entertainment activities of the day: Places to Telnet.  (indirectly via)

Lazy Reading for 2017/02/05

You weren’t planning to do anything else today, right?  Find some headphones.

Your unrelated link of the week: Bandcamp Daily.  Curated daily presentations about a band or type of music, where the enthusiasm for any given esoteric sonic whatsit oozes through the writing and samples are there to back it up.  Of course I would like it.  Recent highlights from just the past few days: a history of doom metal; Kid Koala’s new album, and whatever this is.

Lazy Reading for 2017/01/29

Not as many reading links as usual this week, but lots of BSD news yesterday.  It ebbs and it flows.

Your unrelated comic of the week: “Your comment here“.  Also “presentation“.

Lazy Reading for 2017/01/22

Thinkpieces, this week.

Your tea link of the week: Scary photo of an Indian tea plantation

 

Lazy Reading for 2017/01/15

“Old consumer computers” is this week’s accidental theme.

Your unrelated video of the week: Turbo Encabulator.  There’s more like that out there, like the Rockwell Retro Encabulator.

I hope you have lots of time to read today.
