“Amazingly, the link still works” 

Two amazing things

1) In a piece looking back over 1000 of his linkblog posts, Charles Arthur finds it remarkable that a link from 2010 still works.

2) The piece seems to be on Medium and nowhere else.

I reckon the two observatiuons are linked (haha). Which makes me wonder whether to even share this link. Will it still work in 2028? Or would Charles be better of owning his stuff somewhere else?

I'm still getting spam through public comments. I divert the notifications to a special mailbox and keep on top of them, deleting anything I find, and, touch wood, it may be declining.

I'm instantly adding the -day-of-week code outlined here into my one-line-per-day journal of sorts.

Forewarned is forearmed; thanks.

Intersecting milk cartons is indeed cool, as Chris noted. Equally cool, maybe more so, is the Miuri fold, which I learned about in the Christmas Economist. https://www.economist.com/christmas-specials/2018/12/18/origami-spreads-its-wings

#Hashtags & HTML

1 min read

Once again, there is chatter about how @Withknown deals with hashtags and HTML I still believe that it often removes a hashtag from the content of an Instagram description, sent here by OwnYourGram. I'll test that in a moment. And there certainly were problems with certain characters in Titles and body. So this is a test of this <- and that.

Learn something new every day. I can use email to post to this site with Quill. Never needed it before, but good to know.

Dear reporters seeking to impress me,

“Exponentially” does not mean “very large”.

Yours etc.

Chris, I don't know what got you into all this strong names stuff, but I want to take the opportunity to point to my own pet peeve and a fine band, together at https://www.jeremycherfas.net/blog/eagles-point-the-way
