M-x org-insert-times TAB... TAB... Nothing. What was that command already. 30s later: M-x org-insert-time-stamp. Very annoying. Maybe should I just define the command as an alias and be done with it... Or do so and add a motivated "pull request"...

I'm not sure I'm using this website properly but I couldn't find TFM to R(ead) it so I beg your pardon. In the meantime, it's nice to have a place to jot down some ideas in case someone would ever be interested.

Regarding isocpp "Contracts design" proposal (p0380r1), I wonder why we need names for expects/ensures/assert. The conditions' could be expressed *just* before an opening brace, *just* after, or somewhere else and that would mean respectively: precondition, postcondition, or assertion. (I'm not sure what's the grammar impact of this suggestion, though.) On a side note, this would make the otherwise empty brace-lines more meaningful :)

"Union directories are one of the most widely used organizational features of the Plan 9 name space. For instance, the directory/bin is built as a union of /$cpu type/bin (program binaries), /rc/bin (shell scripts), and perhaps more directories provided by the user. This construction makes the shell$PATH variable unnecessary." (plan9.ms)

I did not know that. This might help me play with plan9 more... HolyC is really cool, too. The system Terry Davis built in TempleOS is fascinating. HolyC is JIT, and I think can be rebuilt and executed in place. It's a bastard language for sure; somehow it reminds me of a shell language but actually compiled and statically typed. Why is this not a more commonplace way to design a modern operating system? There's a lot of cruft from Unix left around, it's horrible. Zalgo!

What would happen the day Subreply ceases to run? Would the users get a chance to backup? How about getting a git interface to our subs?

I need to safely annotate the (meaningful) webpages I read. I'm sure addons exist to that purpose but, so far, I've only been impressed by how heavy and clunky they are. That is how they "were", years ago. I should give them a second try.

How little power would a modern 486 demand? Not much at all, according to Joe Zbiciak! quora.com/If-a-486...

How did you get away without a name in your profile? Should I have registered earlier to get that privilege?
