Funny how the announcers didn’t mention how quaint the English fans were in their traditional garb with their songs and chants.

I know lots of STEM textbooks are opaque, but whenever I see a “this book doesn’t explain things well” review on Amazon, my first reaction is “Maybe you’re just a dumbass.”

Would it be a Illinois Civil Engineering alumni newsletter without an article on concrete canoes?

When I see a sudden jump in the number of unread posts in NetNewsWire, my first thought is “oh, somebody rejiggered their blog today and made it seem like a bunch of old posts are new.” Today, that happened with both Michael Tsai and Casey Liss, so I’m wondering if some publishing system—or maybe even NNW itself—had a hiccup.

After reading the Wordle article that Gruber linked to yesterday, I was feeling pretty smug about hosting my own copy of the original game for my family to use. Then came today's word…

Is it better that Illinois won tonight or that Michigan and Juwan Howard lost? Certainly that the Illini won.

Motorola produced versions of the 68040 for many different computing purposes. The 68LC040 which lacked an FPU, the 68EC040 which had neither MMU or FPU, and the 68NC040 pictured here which lacked a CPU entirely.

The carcass has been cleaned and thrown out. Thus marks the official end of Thanksgiving. We now move on to the period of Leftovers.

OK, now I see that MetaText is an iPad app that runs on my Mac because it has an M1 chip. Nice of Apple to hide this fact in light gray text. Thanks for the help!

I like using MetaText on my phone, so I installed it on my Mac. Any idea how I can change the font size to something my 62-year-old eyes can read?

My 5k walk time this morning was 45:17, which is a little disappointing. I was hoping to come in under 45:00.

My last (I hope) thoughts on Twitter: 

Bringing back James O’Keefe is worse then bringing back Trump. Trump’s lifelong goals have been to make money and be famous; his constant lying is a means to that end. For O’Keefe, lying is the goal.

It’s always funny when I criticize a billionaire and someone says “Oh, yeah? What have you done?” and I get to enjoy the moment a bit before I drop it on them that I was the guy who made the first corn maze using only creamed corn.

I understand why it was a difficult decision to kick Trump off, even if you knew he was using your platform to spread dangerous lies. But letting him back on means you support the dangerous lies.
