Thank-you! @johndalton This reminds me of that argument about how many days in a week on a bodybuilding forum.

@martinkrafft I know it used to, no idea about current state. @khhsocratica @FlyingRobotGirl Can't like this tweet enough, every apartment building needs a workshop / tool library. @ibeardslee They only make change for customers? @voltagex So does Melbourne, technically ... all our trams and trains are DC

@seanodiggity This is a really good point, and now seems obvious in hindsight, thanks for your insight. @seanodiggity Is an EULA strictly copyright, though? @taliaualiitia This unfollow bug is a renowned Twitter bug, it's been happening to me occasionally for *years*It sounds like a really loud neighbour, was wondering which one to complain to, but I guess Queen are my neighbours tonight!Perhaps I've understated just how loud and clear this is, I can hear every note and vocal, well enough to sing alon… can clearly hear the live Queen gig from 2.5km away, that's one decent sound system, hope I'm not expected to have a ticket ... :-) @seopirath Prioritise for familiarity, unless you've got time to learn the quirks. @upulie An apartment I rented way back, had enough room for the fridge in the kitchen, but no way to fit up the stairs.
@BartNLutherKing I'm also reporting them all, solidarity! @mjg59 You just made me realise I also have a need for this. @hacks4pancakes Wait until you're old enough to be invisible, physical pentests would be a cakewalk. @akareilly Been there done that (Poll Dorset stud), have also done hay carting as a summer job.

Unless I'm mistaken, it was a while ago. @hyc_symas @vielmetti I'd speculate that if Linux remained the hobby of a single individual it wouldn't have ascend… @hyc_symas @vielmetti You can still be kind and refuse to accept the status quo. @hyc_symas @vielmetti But as previously mentioned, an example would be the branches of BSD. @hyc_symas @vielmetti Perhaps they decided to contribute to an existing project? I'm talking about a hypothetical a… @hyc_symas @vielmetti s/planned/planted/ stupid auto corrupt. @hyc_symas @vielmetti Yes, but do you think in lieu of that seminal work, it's possible someone else may have planned a similar seed?

@mattblaze A function of having more than 10k followers, I suppose. Must be awful. @DoctorKittyface @c3convertase Why do they still teach it? Some kind of historical artefact? Are they aware it undermines their credibility? @Asher_Wolf @lkanies @webhat It's a screen replacement/substitute/replacement (or improvement allegedly) @afcowie Not really, I think you'll want tlmgr, and if all else fails, find(1)? @afcowie You mean tlmgr?
