Lots of variety this week; I’m happy with this link batch.
- Categories: models of models. Pleasingly abstract. (via)
- The Complicated, Slightly Better Manhood of Achewood. Linked so that someone who never read Achewood can now go through its entire archive. (via)
- The End of Oz. Read this if you read any/all of the many, many Land of Oz books when young. (via)
- Modding, Vim, i3, and Efficiency. (via)
- I’ve made a rotary dial number input, because why not? (via)
- Coffee Is Hard. (via)
- The Best Cast Iron Skillet. Secret tip from someone who has been using them for decades: treat them poorly, don’t spend money, they’ll be great. It’s a chunk of iron.
- The Computer as a Communication Device. I did not realize the role Hawaii played in causing packet communication.
- Computer Files Are Going Extinct. (via)
- Betrayal At Krondor.
- I hate the X11 ICCCM selection system, and you should too. (via)
- You know, we might as well just run every network service over HTTPS/2 and build another six layers on top of that to appease the OSI 7-layer burrito guys. Linked mostly for that sentence.
- The lines of code that changed everything.
Your unrelated music of the week: The Mysterious Professor 950’s Otherworldly Beat Tapes.
