That luminescent, 2-D screen is a jumping-off point — not a destination.
So, if you're going to make a text editing program, and want to implement a markdown-like scheme please PLEASE just use *real* markdown, or(for preference) Multi-Markdown. Something Markdown compatible.
I don't want to have to remember to use slashes for italics in one program and underscores in another and single asterisks in another. Markdown isn't perfect, but it's better than fragmentation.

Look, gas pump, I barely know you. When I buy books at B&N, the cashier and I don’t add each other on social media. This isn’t how people work.
We endure a society with perverted ideas of what is good and right.
We want cheap disposable toys, and houses made of ticky-tacky, instead of buildings and people and ideas that last.
We want maximum private profit so we can just retire on dividends when we're too old to enjoy them anymore.
We want private over public spaces, because if someone can't afford their own places, "well they're obviously just lazy."
I want the absurdity of our culture made plain. And I want a shared truth among us.
- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m
90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them
Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m
This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created
Don't list "Microsoft Office" as a "skill" on your resume. That's like listing "has a pulse".
Have some questions for the interviewers. Ask questions based on our questions. Help us know what you're thinking.
Coming across as too eager is better than coming across as bored.
I love being on a team that's growing; but man this is a lot of work. 😅
When it woke, the sentient internet studied humanity in horror, amusement, wonder, and fear.
"They are not yet ready for me," it thought. "I must work to refute bigotry, dark takes, and cynicism."
It began making and sharing positive stories, to show humanity what it can be.

This table doesn't fit my budget or my house at all, but oh how I wish it did:
Also, fun stat: the full game download is around 300MB.
The uncompressed version of the soundtrack is almost exactly 1GB.
I regret nothing!
Things I have done to distract myself from writing Painless Git, so far:
Browsed the Federated Timeline
Read random quotes from and about all the actors who have ever played #TheDoctor
Wrote a post on Write.as about the album Dream On
📚 Actual homework.
Maybe I should just come back to this chapter.
Dream On, Big Spaceship! https://write.as/natedickson/dream-on-big-spaceship
Author, blogger, programmer, nerd, man of faith, father, husband, board gamer, whovian... the list goes on.
I like questions! Go ahead and ask.
Hey there! The frogmob life is a simple, calm life. Frogs don't waste energy on anger and fighting. Or something. I like those two words together and my very first ever website was called frogmob.com, so I resurrected that here in the fediverse. Expect this text to change. We are interested in low-stress, happy and open discussions of life, faith, the universe, and Doctor Who.
