Today I remapped one of my keys to a Hyper key (known from the space-kadet used on Lisp machines, not physically present on modern ). What surprised me is that systems typically associate it with the Mod4 modifier, the same that is already associated with the Super (Windows) key, making the two keys more or less undistinguishable for . This can be reconfigured, but still… what is the benefit of such configuration in the first place?

In the era of informational flood, how do we choose which unsolicited messages are worth our attention? One method is to delegate this duty to corporations and their AI algorithms. Is there another way? Yes, there is. I’ve written a blog post named “How to let senders prioritize your inbox and be happy with that” and a program, Mail Flagger, that facilitates that. Cross-platform, with optional GUI, extensible (via ZeroMQ and via plugins).

Version 75 of removed an option to turn off a buggy behaviour of URL address bar which selected whole text after just one click, but without putting it into clipboard (contrary to expectations of users of -like systems). Now it’s possible to:

⒈ Click one time, selecting whole text (not copied).
⒉ Click two times fast, selecting single word (copied).
⒊ Click two times slowly, putting cursor at point.
⒋ Click three times, selecting whole text (copied).

@ppk @peter A quote from the linked interview: “We can’t realistically pass these tests 100% as they test such a huge set of APIs - it would take us years to catch up with other browsers so we can only focus on what is used by priority websites.”

Provocative post, worth a read...

"The total word count of the W3C spec catalogue is 114 million words... It is impossible to build a new web browser... It would be comparable in effort to the Apollo program or the Manhattan project."

The chart operates on absolute numbers and starts from a 100th case, which for smaller countries means a higher percentage of population already infected.


In the Index of Economic Freedom created by Heritage Foundation, Hong Kong is ranked 1st and is ranked 2nd in the world. Population density in Hong Kong is 6,777/km², but “the residential average population density calculates closer to a highly cramped 100,000/km².” Population density in Singapore is 7,804/km². And here is a chart which illustrates how these two countries cope with the , in comparison to other countries.

Sytuacja z koronawirusem pokazuje, w jakim kierunku mogłaby zmierzać organizacja pracy i innych aktywności po urynkowieniu transportu w miastach. Ale zamiast urynkowienia na co dzień mamy celowo indukowane korki, spaliny, większą emisję CO₂ i ideologiczne dzielenie uczestników transportu na lepszych i gorszych.

W Pile ostatnio niektóre decyzje niczym za rządów liberałów. Miejski , izba wytrzeźwień i ośrodek profilaktyki i rozwiązywania problemów alkoholowych — do likwidacji, bo szkoda pieniędzy. Podobno pokłosie niższego PIT.

I’ve written a proof of concept of a serverless store with delivery by email and orders placed by making payments. Despite of not using any payment-specific libraries, it took just 42 lines of Ruby code.

Jeśli kogoś interesuje temat kryptowalut w ujęciu ekonomicznym, to Stowarzyszenie Libertariańskie opublikowało mój artykuł pt. „Co kryptowaluty mówią nam o teoremacie regresji?”. Zachęcam do lektury.

Kapitalizm i socjalizm, jako typy idealne, nigdy nie zaistniały w historii.

Niemniej tam, gdzie zbliżano się do ideału kapitalistycznego obserwowano obfitość dóbr, rozwój i postęp, podczas gdy tam, gdzie zbliżano się do ideału socjalistycznego obserwowano braki, zastój i regres.

Jak to dobrze, że wybory do Sejmu są równe i proporcjonalne (art. 96 ust. 2 Konstytucji), więc PiS z wynikiem 43,59% nie ma szans na samodzielną większość. Prawda?
