It wraps and generates ALL THE FONTS on the fly as you type. Solid implementation.

Better idea than changing your Twitter password (again): Deactivate your account on that piece of shit site.

All of that to say:

Whoever you are, you should probably write more if you feel like it. Don't worry about "not being unique" or that you're "just copying something better". Write *especially* if you feel an outsider, intimidated by better writers, "not really plugged into the loop".

Your set of influences and interests is probably weird and varied enough that whatever comes out will be strange and new and uncopyable - even more so if you felt distant and on the fringe in some way.

I'm looking for a web application I saw that lets anonymous users put up a static, plain text page. Sound familiar?

I see "data breach" being used to describe the transfer of Facebook user data to Cambridge Analytica. It wasn't a data breach. It's Facebook's business model.

The GNU coreutils manual is a worthwhile read.
