"How to Kill IE11" by Mike Sherov mike.sherov.com/ie11-countdown

Interesting post. My bet is that IE11 will continue to linger for at least another year or two, though. Too many enterprises stuck on IE for compat reasons.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past for 3DS was the best $8 I’ve spent in a while.

I’ve probably already sunk 7 hours into it.

Twitch Prime really dropped the ball on this whole NSO business.

TIL you need to add additional custom shells to /etc/shell on macOS.

Makes me wonder wth I was using before.

This is a pretty compelling reason. Esp. if you are writing open source code.

If I never stop working I might actually keep up with work.

"On 10 April, astrophysicists announced that they had captured the 1st ever image of a #blackhole.

No headlines mentioned that the image would have been impossible without open-source software: #Matplotlib, a #Python library for graphing data.

Siri: I'm sorry, I can't create a personalized station with that.

Me: Play Ranbow Kitten Surprise
Siri: Ok, now playing a personalized Rainbow Kitten Surprise radio station.

I have a bad habit of typing my reply to an email and then deciding it's not worth replying.

It’s 2019 and I have yet to have experienced VR. Not once have I worn a VR headset.

I used to be wholly involved in all things tech - it must’ve diversified too much for me to keep up.

The more Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook run into controversy, the more I think that the concept of social networks just doesn't scale well beyond roughly a few thousand people.

And why would they? Prior to the internet, what was the largest monolithic social network you could join? It was a physical limitation, but we're a product of thousands of years of those physical limitations.

I always forget to read the docs before taking a deep dive into a project. Things tend to get messier this way.
