I have a file I’m working on named chat.php and I can’t stop calling it chatgpt by accident.

Arc users:

Do you get annoyed with tabs “falling asleep” then reloading when you click on them? A reload has potential ramifications. I don’t want a page to reload without my say so.

    – Mark paste as listed (shows up on your public pastebin)
    – Sort notes alphabetically or by last updated
    – Get the note/paste URL in the sidebar
    – Restore previous scroll position when deactivating preview

Attention omglolers…

You know what the world needs? Yet another note-taking app!

Why? Because I had the address “write.omg.lol” and I wanted to make something fun with it! (This is the way.)

Write is a notepad that saves your notes as unlisted pastes in your omg.lol pastebin. It can preview markdown. It has a distraction free mode. It has color themes. It has bugs (probably). It’s desktop size only right now but mobile is my next priority.

Check it out: write.omg.lol/

A Mississippi man sustained multiple mental and emotional injuries after a run in with CORS.

He was heard moments ago yelling, “ACCESS CONTROL ALLOW YOUR MOM,” after which he was seen flipping his computer desk.

Said the man after a calm exhale, “I am now ready for the sweet peace of death.”

This story is developing.

I don’t know how so many macOS apps are able to hide scrollbars even though I have “Show scrollbars” set to “Always” in macOS settings.

I see it more as time goes on and it makes me wonder if there’s just some SwiftUI scroll view or something that does that by default.

When writing on a computer, I prefer to use:

  • Sans-serif
  • Serif
  • Monospaced
  • Don’t care / it depends / all of the above
