Buddy, the Library Isn’t a 7-Eleven

quote [ “How can you guys not have sidewalk chalk? This is the worst library!” ]

“You have already done a recent post to this category. Either post something to a different category, or wait a while before attempting to post again to this one.”

Your Public Library Is Where It’s At

quote [ This rare openness and neutrality imbues libraries with a distinct sense of community, of us, of everyone having come together to fund and build and participate in this collective sharing of knowledge and space. ]

Still get yearly funding mails from the Ferguson library after supporting it through some game bundle back then.

McMansion Hell

quote [ In order to earn money to pay off my $42,000 student loan debt, I tore into Betsy DeVos’ ridiculously bad house for Vox. ]

Knowledgeable deduction. Didn't know the term McMansion before.

Let Them Have Playgrounds

quote [ There children could play out of sight, directed by themselves, digging and building elaborate structures as they wished. It was both a subversive and egalitarian act, a semi-secret independent space defying the invaders. ]

Seeing the shoutbox I was digging up that Human Transit article again and somehow ended up finding old bookmarks on architecture. Looks like SE is missing an urban/architecture tag.

IndieGames: A Farewell, But A Hello At IndieGamesPlus.com!

quote [ BTW, the entire IndieGames.com domain will redirect to IndieGamesPlus sometime in the next few days, so we'll get the benefit of all that historical site traffic ]

13-year-old blog w/ pretty good coverage leaves GDC brand and asks for moderate funding while having migrated all reviews up to the very first one. Also, excuse the latent retro posting lately.

The timeline section was pretty interesting.

Why the Future of Data Storage is (Still) Magnetic Tape

quote [ because tape has now disappeared completely from consumer-level products, most people are unaware of its existence, let alone of the tremendous advances that tape recording technology has made in recent years and will continue to make for the foreseeable future. ]

Ask HN: Strange bug workarounds? | Hacker News

quote [ in my early days (late 1990s) supporting an office network in London there was a computer where the mouse was making the cursor behave erratically during roughly the same period every afternoon. We swapped out the mouse, the controller card, even the computer - effectively replacing all the physical equipment - and nothing seemed to stop it. We went through all sorts of ideas - too near the microwave, heavy fax machine usage, someone's mobile phone … ]

Sifting through old links. Sorry for posting Hacker News again but these were too interesting. Solution in extended, thumb via New Old Stock

Kris Kristofferson talking about his song Sunday morning coming down

quote [ so "Sunday Morning Coming Down" is kind of more or less what I was living at that time. I guess it was depressing, I don't know, but the chorus was kind of uplifting. ... What I was really trying to do was to keep the feeling of loss and of sadness. ]

Interesting background on a good song. Wiki page has surprisingly little information. Was considered 6th of the 40 saddest country songs of all time* in the Johnny Cash version. I like the Kristofferson one better.
