@aurynn yeah, on equal footing - one no longer allowed to have the features it needs and one unable to make use of the features it has in a working whole

@aurynn it speaks volumes that they wrecked their API so that their own could finally be better than tweetbot

a friend of mine who spends a LOT of his time picking up plastic waste from parks, rivers, streets, etc. had a good idea. He decided to photograph the non biodegradable waste and tag companies on social media with it. So if he finds a plastic Subway cup, he tells Subway about it with the message "is this yours?" I dig this because it's not something that blames the consumer. It puts the blame where it belongs: on the producer.

thinking of creating a storage medium for hipsters that uses a rapidly spinning "platter" with a needle to read and write data sequentially, suffers from long "spin-up" delays, consumes power when idle unless turned off, performs horribly at random reading and writing, needs to be defragmented to ensure the health and performance of the drive, makes audible whirring when in use, and can be permanently damaged by running a magnet over them or getting dust on the platters

oh wait

@wilkie guess this explains the operator precedence for * and +: addition after multiplication means you get one more chance to reduce the margin in floats (:
