Arrow wasn’t a perfect show but that was a fantastic finale. They basically gave the fans everything they have ever asked for. EVERYTHING!

TIL in bash/shell, “>” redirects to and overwrites a file if it exists, while “>>” redirects to and appends to a file if it exists. I’ve been using these for years and never knew the distinction until I needed it

I kind of want to know what happened after that glare at the end Quoted KasamangChad’s tweet:

WATCH: PCOO Usec Lorraine Badoy, sinabon ng mga host ng #TheChiefs dahil imbis na sagutin ang rebuttal ng @IBONFoundation, puro panreredtag ang binubula ng bibig nito.

Bonus: Abangan yung last frame, pang meme material yung fezlak ni ghorl 😂

In the Philippines we have both people complaining that scientists didnt warn early enough about the volcano erupting and also people saying we shouldn’t listen to scientists’ “opinion” because they’re “not god”. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

RT if you’ve been making web things so long you remember the days when you had to download Firebug so you could have a web console.

Witnessed the most amazing thing on the train to Edinburgh yesterday. A guy boarded in Wigan & sat opposite me. He went to sleep for an hour.

When he woke up he bought a sandwich, ate it & went back to sleep. (This isn’t a maths test, you don’t need to know the distance/speed).

Trying to justify poor performance with approval ratings is a tacit admission that your goal was window-dressing all along and not actually doing your job. Let the people approve because you did the thing, not because you tricked them into thinking you did. Quoted gideonlasco’s tweet:

The police and the government should stop using approval ratings to justify their failures.

Beyond legitimate questions about the valditity of some opinion surveys, popularity is a poor substitute for truth or justice.

One of my 2020 resolutions will be to reduce my reliance on Google services. First step is changing the primary email I use on most services. That first step is gonna take a while though!
