Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦‍♂️


And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.

There is topic on lesswrong about "trivial inconveniences". Recall it today reading about notetaking software. For me markor + syncthing were game changers. Open source, p2p sync, markdown, datetimestamping - sky is the limit. And simplicity. Just open Markor and write :)

Goodbye bitbucket. "No hg - no my repos". Now, when all git reigns, GitLab looks a lot more attractive (10 Gb for repo vs 2 Gb in bb).

Think about strange way of keeping bibtex notes inside articles I write. Then postpro script getting them out and make bibliography from. Seems complicated, but better than keep them in separate db.

Genius. They wrote a script to make a PDF look like it's printed, signed, and then scanned again. Because digital signatures are still not accepted in many places while a signed and scanned printout is.

This is hacking bureaucracy. I love it!
