I wish I didn't know a thing about programming so I can enjoy these moments even more

Very good: just heard a proposed better name for people engaging in ransomware attacks: 'technical-debt collectors'. Oh snap! (h/t @menn0 and risky.biz/RB629/ at about 9min). To me, it seems fair to call them collectors of a special tax on organisations unable to control their own tech.

Excellent tea-related content. ☕️

Just finish an upgrade to my web site. New colours, more whitespace, CSS grid to make things behave nicely on mobile. There's more to do but I'm happy with the result so far. menno.io/

One thing I absolutely love about #Emacs is how easy it is to add random convenience features to it. I've just added two work-related ones in the span of 10 minutes. Each is a single line of elisp, and they both leverage a popup UI (via Hydra package) I added some year ago.

That's the nice thing. Small utilities accrue and become greater than the sum of their parts.

Want straightforward, linear undo/redo in and something simpler, faster and more reliable than undo-tree? Try undo-fu. I've been using it for a few weeks now and it's wonderful. gitlab.com/ideasman42/emacs-un

“It’s Terry,” said Terry. “‘Ere. That [story] you sent me. Are you doing anything with it?”
“Not really.”
“Well, I think I know what happens next. Do you want to sell it to me? Or write it together?”
“Write it together,” I said, because I was not stupid, and because that was the nearest I was ever going to get to Michaelangelo phoning to ask if I wanted to paint a ceiling with him.

I received new Ferrous keycaps from Pimp My Keyboard for my Vortex Race 3 today. They look awesome, better than the store pictures. Very pleased.

New ! Vortex Race 3 with MX clear switches. This one is nice and portable.

You learn something every day. I've been using DuckDuckGo for ages but didn't know about the "bang" feature. I usually set up other search engines directly in the my browser but this means I don't have to. Neat! duckduckgo.com/bang

Super green. Ethiopia tries to break world record by planting 200million trees in one day. Ends up planting 350million. Ethiopia is determined to reclaim lost forests, which covered 35% of country in 1900 but only 4% of country in 2000. theguardian.com/world/2019/jul
