Ohioans, tomorrow (Tuesday, the 8th) is the day to vote on issue 1. I suggest we all get out to vote. The issue is whether to make it harder for citizens to amend the constitution. I am a hard no on the issue, and would hate to see what limited power us citizens have reduced further in favor of politicians.Continue reading post "#4116"
Sad to hear of Bram Moolenaar’s recent death. RIP. He was the creator and main developer of vim, the common and influential *NIX text editor. I encountered the editor in the early aughts from a CS professor who used it and was very quick with it. I’ve used it over the years on Linux servers, where it is one of the few command line editors always installed. It has a learning curve, but I’ve gotten comfortable with it over the years. With the death of the Atom editor, I’ve been moving toward vim as my primary editor.
Bram continued to steer the development of the editor up to its death, so it will be interesting to see where it goes without him. Some complained he kept the editor from modern features, resulting in a fork called neovim. We’ll see if vim modernizes more without Bram, if the project slows or dies without him, if neovim takes over, or if perhaps some efforts to re-merge the projects are made.
I went to the Guardians game Friday with my brother. It was overall a good night, competitive but the team won. Generally pleasant weather if a little hot.Continue reading post "#4111"

T-Mobile is being annoying, requiring a debit card or bank routing number to get an auto-pay discount on their “post-paid” plans.Continue reading post "#4099"
Finally, after almost a week since my stings, they’re no longer itching so bad.Continue reading post "#4096"
Some months ago, I wrote a 2023 CSS wishlist for things I’d like to see in the spec. Among them was the desire to be able to add to existing CSS values. This would be particularly useful for multi-value properties like
transform, although it would also be cool to be able to add to existing numeric values, like
2em more padding than this would otherwise have. There would be difficulties implementing this as described in that post though. I’ve thought of some other possible options that may be less problematic.
Thursday, while mowing the lawn, I got stung three times by some yellow-jackets, my first multi-sting event. There’s apparently a nest in my front lawn. I’ll need to get rid of that soon. I’m still feeling the stings, mostly just itchy now.Continue reading post "That stings"
I found a tick biting me on Tuesday. This seems to have become an annual occurrence the last several years.Continue reading post "#4085"
