Ok bud, thanks for the advice.

@polychrome Like someone wearing orthopaedic shoes, I stand corrected.

Gimme some juicy swear words in your native language.

Here's mine (Romanian): băga-mi-aș pula în morții mă-tii (I'd stick my dick in your mother's dead relatives)

Linux is just the kernel of the Emacs operating system.

I have a website, where I blog, and I might write a book. IDK. Check it out? brettgilio.ml/

Feedback is welcome.

the lab in one of my CS classes this week has us doing buffer overflow exploits, which is cool, but also reminds me of just how unsafe our software is by default.

I worry about the present society where mathematical insights and programmatic value are meaningful only by proxy of the institution you work in.

* Slack
* Spotify
* VS Code
* GitHub desktop
* some other electron app they use/make at work
