AIM is being shut down and the Kids Today™ are sad. LiveJournal was driven under by Facebook, then bought by Russians and murdered for being gay. ICQ is still going, but nobody uses it. I miss USENET 🙁 . Blogs & blogrings were killed by Twitter but some of us are posting again.
I like the '90s raytraced Geocities aesthetic and clearly Dropbox does, too.
So I sit down to code, and get maybe 30 minutes in, and BAM, interruption. Sit back down and growl and swear a lot, get back into the zone, and BAM, another interruption. Growl, gonna go play games where I murder people.
So here's today's music:
- Escape From Noise, by Negativland - me & my friends listened to this album so many times in college it's completely wired into my head.
Aside: Posted this with the micro.blog client, which now does long posts. I went into the WP dashboard to add categories, but it'd be just fine for most blogging.
