A good variety this week.
This is another one of those ‘wide variety’ weeks, so settle in; I am confident at least one of these links will grab you.
Your unrelated link of the week: Lynda Barry is the funk queen of the galaxy, a fantastic cartoonist, and now the best ever advice columnist.
I’ve got some esoteric stuff this week.
Unrelated audio link of the week: Alan Lomax recordings are up on Bandcamp.
This wrote itself a week ago.
- More dialing, more weirdness.
- The Internet On Dead Trees. I remember a number of these products.
- If you’d like to pay too much for ancient Radio Shack electronics, now’s your chance! (via)
- books chapter two, a followup to books chapter one which I thought I had linked before, but maybe not. Anyway, the same numeric chapter from a number of text books, described.
- And I delayed long enough to add books chapter three.
- The Internet Phone. Most inconvenient way to browse the Internet ever? (via)
- Stopping the Internet of Noise. RSS still works, and works well! (via)
- Urban and suburban camouflage.
- Trying to work in Haiku, the BeOS successor. (via)
- Winamp’s woes: How the greatest MP3 player undid itself. (via)
- Bashfill – art for your terminal. (via)

- The origin of HTTP POST explained in a dinosaur comic.
- Not-butters. (sorta via)
- IFComp 2017 is open.
- Get My Books Cheap. Not me, Michael W. Lucas’s books – his fiction work, along with a number of other authors.
Your unrelated video link of the week: Animated Short Films. An animator’s favorites, if the above list of links hasn’t kept you busy enough..
Slightly earlier than normal because of the magic of prerecording, BSDNow 197 is up and has an interview with Michael W. Lucas about his books. (I’m hoping for interviews from BSDCan next week.)
Even more overflow, pushing my pre-published posts forward.
Accidental topic this week: text interfaces!
Your unrelated video of the week: DOUBLE KING. (via multiple places)
It’s long article title week!
Odd batch of links this week.
Your BSD-related fiction book of the week (year? decade?) :’git commit murder‘ is out, set at a (fictional) BSD convention.
More thinking topics than version changes this week, which is interesting.
Much better than last week, but there wasn’t any hurricane-force winds this week – which helps.
Michael W. Lucas will be showing up tomorrow with physical copies of his books at the Grosse Pointe Library. (I’m assuming it will be both his fiction and non-fiction BSD books.) If you are near, I bet you can get a signed copy.
BSD author Michael W. Lucas is talking at the Troy Public Library (Michigan, not New York) tonight, about his nonfiction writing. Go, if you like his books and/or if you are thinking about technical writing for yourself. He has another appearance coming up on March 11th.
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)
Accidental theme this week: books.
There’s always a rush of links after a holiday, as people sit at home and catch up on what they’ve wanted to do.
Last anything for the year!
