Pinned toot

The Unisys ICON 2 is one of my favourite computers of all time. I learned Turing and C on these, and also spent a lot of time playing games before school. These ran QNX and were my first experience with a Unix-like OS. The Ontario government destroyed the computers and software and they are now incredibly rare.

There are some pictures of one of the few working ICONs here:

This can't be said enough, awesome. I would not know how to work without it

I uninstalled uBlock Origin and started getting ads on YouTube every 60 seconds. I don't know how anyone could tolerate that. I immediately reinstalled it.

"Back in the days, everything was better"...isn't a statement to be lightly made. However in the case of the modern internet it is. Gone are the days of lean and efficient websites consisting mainly of self-written portions of semantic HTML, CSS and sprinkles of scripting (either PHP and or Javascript). They had to make way for websites, consisting mainly of scripts/frameworks generating HTML and CSS, topped of with a steep incline of alongside running ads and surveillance tools.

New personal goal: close more browser tabs than I open each day.

How do you install packages with pip?
