I wish more FLOSS software's online manuals had everything in one big HTML page, rather than split it up. It's 2018, I can download a 500kB HTML page! And then I can use Control-F to search your docs!

Wanna have a bit of fun watching people get all confused while revealing society's inherent patriarchal bias?

We're using email+etherpad now. This group is relatively distributed, and we write things asynchronisly. If I write a thing, I don't know who has looked at it and thinks it's OK.

Dear LazyWeb: Is there any web software for collaborative editing of documents, which is more than a wiki's "last edit wins" approach?

Got a kit. Got everything ready. I have cut the tip of my finger, and I dropped a needle and found it embedded in my leg the next morning.

This is dangerous stuff!

The internet used to be a city: it had its weird bohemian districts, its flea markets, its high-rises and back alleys. Now it's just a shopping mall, and I miss my old city so much

Remember. Western society tries hard to make us cold and ruthless. An act of kindness is an act of rebellion.

Go. Rebel.
