  1. Re GNU sort joke:
    Are you asking or is that a quote of someone else asking? If you personally are asking the problem is someone went to port what they thought was a small tool (GNU sort) but found out the job wasn’t small because of all the dependencies that are required to build it. There’s a lot of autoconf hate out there ( , ) but its alternatives (cmake, waf, scons etc.) apparently aren’t perfect either.

  2. If you click on the link, you will see the headline is the same as the link text. If I am making commentary, it’s usually after posting the title verbatim. I should probably start enclosing links to ‘ask’ articles in quotes, though.

  3. Ah now I see. In my browser the link appears to go straight to (and there’s no via) but inspecting the source of the page shows it has attributes like data-outbound-url going to reddit.

  4. Grr, I hate those redirects they work into the URLs. I cleaned up the link and put it in quotes; I’ll have to do that more often.
