This page aggregates together stuff having to do with Joey from elsewhere on the net.
Also when you get past the 1st bit, it's a very good article about things we should all think about.
But Joeyh, _why, Thoreau, Emerson, Knuth, Plato and Nietzsche?! At least one of these things is not like the others.
It is very weird to randomly click on some post on HN and get this. If you're me. http://begriffs.com/posts/2015-04-20-going-write-only.html
git-annex is featured on the 10 Years of Git timeline https://www.atlassian.com/git/articles/10-years-of-git/
It's an effective (and common) policy if you want to keep people in the dark.
Much as I came up with the whole design document for Scroll late one night, I've just written down a pretty complete design for "GIt the Explorer".
In which you play Git, a level 1 Explorer of a git repository. Any git repository.
Your goal: To travel back in time to the Big Commit that started it all.

(Does this mean the game could not only play its own repositoriy, but even play its own save games as levels in itself? :)
Other than a rather tricky level layout, this seems simpler and easier than Scroll, so doable in a week. It still seems insane to do 7drl again next year, but one of these 7drl's ...
Have not been reading a lot of fiction the past year or two, but I certainly am this week. Read just 8 novels in Jan-Mar, but already 5 in April, and 2 in the past 2 days.

0x27 in programmer years means
... I can mostly sort of understand this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KioQRICpmo
... And hey, I remember that guy, we had lunch in Canberra once and the whole table of LCA attendees happened to know Haskell.
... And, it seems, I wake up at 6 am to watch lectures like this now?
Pleased that I helped the curl developers fix its behavior when downloading a 0-byte url. Before now, it "successfully" didn't create a file at all in this situation. https://github.com/bagder/curl/issues/183
They went from "It certainly works like this on purpose, it is not a mistake" to "I have merged the fix for this issue". All it took in this case was gently pointing out a better approach than the one they'd gotten stuck on.
Good bug reporting is such an art. Mine aren't always so good, or successful. Sometimes just funny is the way to go https://github.com/yamadapc/haskell-ascii-progress/issues/13
"Encryption in ext4 is a per-directory-tree affair." http://lwn.net/SubscriberLink/639427/309eb368f189617c/ OH YEAH
(Although exposure of number of encrypted files and sizes may limit use cases a tad.)
I hope this slays encfs; tired of getting bug reports related to its implementation warts.

Laundry, taxes, and then an emergency .1 bugfix release. I've had better days.
Earliest possible April fools joke?
Is the SMS network somehow more libre than the Internet?
(Honestly curious, the only thing I've ever done with SMS is block them all to try to avoid chargeback spams.)
Mrs Manners says to click it 12 times in this situation.
Wait, didn't I report a security bug in
Clearly, removing it is for the best..
finally a search engine I can get behind https://com.google/
Not only should everyone run adblocking software, but it should be included, and enabled by default in OS installs.
BTW, check out https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/ if you haven't seen it yet.
Edit: Its readme has a succinct statement of this -- "The ultimate logical consequence of blocking = theft is the criminalisation of the inalienable right to privacy."
til: git expands wildcards. Because one expansion of wildcards, by the shell, is not enough?
