Buddhist Hardware · Bud­dhist Hard­ware I was in Home De­pot, which is an in­tense kind of place. Peo­ple look at the shelves in­tense­ly, they talk to each oth­er in­tense­ly, and they talk to the or­ange aprons re­al­ly in­tense­ly, with di­rect eye con­tac­t ...
 
Emacs on Mac OS X · Emacs on Mac OS X It turns out that there is a per­fect­ly good ver­sion of GNU Emacs for the Mac OS X.

The Warriors Formed the Outline of a Heart · Warsinger died. Warsinger is the nom-de-guerre of a mid-level play­er in the middlingly-popular MMORPG Dark Age of Camelot. Camelot­ers fight fear­some mon­sters that swarm the coun­try­side (and of­ten lose).
