In "The Tree Who Set Healthy Boundaries," Topher Payne rewrites the ending of "Giving Tree" to unpick the expert, Silversteinien knot of shitty ideas tied so well that you can easily miss them.

Today's NYT crossword is one of my all-time faves. Congratulations, Robyn Eintraub, on a job well done.

Where can I find people who use RSS to consume feeds, and who republish the curated best articles of those feeds? I want to follow those peoples' republished feeds, in order to discover new feeds to add to my own reader (and new curators to follow).

You know, like twitter/mastodon, but for RSS. Like Google Reader. Or TheOldReader.

(I'm currently using News+
and TinyTinyRSS inside Sandstorm, so I don't have an easy way to republish articles.)

Today was a productive day of staring at hex dumps. I'm delighted to be using my reverse engineering skills for the greater good.

Very excited about this! I've loved my Gemini from Planet Computers; its two major drawbacks are (1) terrible back camera and (2) hard to use with one hand. Looks like their next project, the Astro, will solve these without compromising its wonderful 100wpm+ keyboard.
