I have thrown
my computer
from a four-story
balcony.

Forgive me.
There were so many
emails
that did not find me well.

There are an awful lot of VIM swap files being packaged with software.

Remember to add “.*.swp” to your .gitignore

Another for the pile of “falsehoods programmers believe about identity”.

1 email = 1 person

i regret to inform everyone that @wandrew has been detained by the FBI. he was in an AOL chatroom, and and undercover agent typed "A/S/L?". two hours later, this agent offered to sell him thousands of pounds of fertilizer to kill an archduke, and wandrew took the bait

@smallsees I really need to get there sometime soon. I managed the exact opposite achievement this year though, at -12 metres!

Welcome to the top of Australia.

This is the monument on the top of Mount Kosciusko which is the tallest mountain in Australia at 2228 metres.

Went down the coast on the weekend and found this guy next to the wharf. Seemed happy enough wandering around the tiny fish and kicking up sand.

The ray was about the size of a dinner plate with the tail.
