I'm curious if anyone enjoys using a tiling window manager with an ultrawide monitor? Seems like it would be an ideal combination, but in practice, for me, windows just end up being awkward sizes when tiled (usually way too narrow in a single direction.)

Just saw “There’s Something About Mary” for the first time, and it did not age well.

Bleeped some bloops tonight. First time connecting these together just to see if they would behave with each other. Will get the OP-Z more involved next time around, hopefully making for something a bit more interesting. youtube.com/watch?v=7LHzomxB8m

Regardless of whose side you’re on, if today isn’t proof that the US's two-party system and federal government are fundamentally broken, I don’t know what is. One election race should not be able to dictate which direction our flawed system of party-line voting will swing.

Just came up with what I think is a decent metaphor to quickly explain net neutrality: A fast-moving elevator (paying for a fast connection) isn’t useful if it rarely goes to your most frequently-visited floors relative to others (traffic prioritization.)

Pet peeve: a computer monitor that continues scanning for a signal for 10 seconds while I’m repeatedly hitting the power button hoping to convince it to turn off. Looking at you, Dell.

This election is giving new meaning to the phrase “the long now”.

If you are a musician/band who posts videos of your performances to YouTube, please don't use filters to "age" the footage to look like VHS/old film/etc, I'm there to watch you play and the filters make that harder to see! Vulfpeck and Cory Wong do this, and I wish they didn't.

Even with the HomePod Mini announcement and a further emphasis on stereo pairs, I bet Big Sur still will not ship with system-level support for AirPlay 2 stereo pairs (still just within the Music app, which can be hacked for system-wide audio temporarily, but is not ideal.)

chkbit saved my bacon when it made intermittent hardware issues visible to me. Backup software is not good enough if the data you're backing up is slowly and invisibly getting corrupted. github.com/laktak/chkbit-py

The ongoing hijinks between Dave Grohl and Nandi Bushell are one of the only two good things about 2020. Dave is the most standup guy in rock. twitter.com/Nandi_Bushell/stat
