I've been thinking about why I spent so much time getting carried away by projects with no considerable returns whatsoever. Translation of ancient documents, esoteric geography, speculative linguistics, you name it. Well... they gave me joy is why. Fun is not a good enough reason to do anything. Joy is.

I'm old enough to remember when software that sent records of everything you did and websites you visited was called "spyware".

How times have changed.

And I don't mean that spyware has gone away.

I'm looking for something like a MUD (as in Multi-User Dungeon — see below), but with an emphasis on environment exploration or puzzle solving.

Something like Myst Online: URU Live, but text. Any recommendations? Does such a thing even exist?

@m2m Oh, i guess you're talking about the maximize that doesn't always maximize because it "expend just enough to show you all content" ?

@m2m Really? It used to be that if you left click on the green button, it goes into full screen, but if you Alt+click, it maximize the window (but not full screen)

@m2m you can also Alt+click on the green expend button in the top left corner of windows. (I think. I haven't used macOS in a while)

That's actually a very good point. Almost everyone have pictures of their kids running around bollock naked in the garden / swimming pool / beach / whatever.

Image recognition can tell they're naked children alright. But it cannot tell those are *your* children.

The fascination of morons with technology never ceases to amaze me.

🇬🇧 Why are the EU's plans for #chatcontrol so dangerous? What could happen to your private holiday photos in the future if the law is passed?

When my mom goes to the beach, she spends the whole time walking, looking for heart shaped rocks. She's also the biggest fan of my cookies. So I made her heart shaped pebble looking cookies. 🖤
