🏒 Lucian Marin I'm using a Gmail filter that searches and labels mails that contain the word "unsubscribe". It skips the inbox then I check it later to see if I received something worthy.
Simon Janes That was a good tip. I just labeled it "UNSUBSCRIBABLE" and get a nice big badge that's useful until they redesign Gmail this year and ruin it for everyone.
Simon Janes Recently decided that unsubscribing all unnecessary e-mail, even from products I kind of like, was a good idea. E-mail became useful again. You really don't realize how much of it you get until you start to pay more attention to it.

😀 Tom There's a thread on HN about how everone talks about how assembling a PC is so difficult, but I've never had a problem. Whether it's making sure I buy compatible components or putting them together. Maybe I have "The Knack" for PC building?
🏒 Lucian Marin Sony invented the bezel-less smartphone in 2013 with Xperia ZL, but now they release smartphones with biggest bezels ever seen. I wonder what happened with their design team.
Simon Janes I think I'm starting to prefer devices with at least finger sized bezels, I've lost count of how many times I've clicked something on screen while I am just trying to hold the device! It's like selling a knife without a handle. You don't see chefs cutting anything with double-edged razor blades outside of performance art.

Eric Yesterday IE opened its dev-tools inside my Chrome window on a different monitor. I could only laugh at the absurdity of it. How MS can fuck something up so much is beyond me. I have a screenshot on my work machine for keeping.
Simon Janes To be fair, I have similar experiences with Chrome and Firefox, so IE isn't the sole offender of "wat?" when it comes to strange behaviors.

Eric I forgot how much of an arse developing for IE was. How could I forget?
Simon Janes Collecting and publishing "scientific systems" articles here at medium.com/the-acc.... Currently playing a lot with Elm Lang, a nice little language with a focus on functional-reactive-programming UI.

🏒 Lucian Marin Maybe the bug is in your terminal emulator? Fish works a bit differently if it's started from bash. Also, a bad config can also cause problems. I use fish as a git client. For everything else I use bash.
😀 Tom Are you a holder of Zcash?
Simon Janes Unfortunately, fish has some showstopper that freezes the shell during auto-complete that I cannot debug, so back to zsh again.
