The new firefox update has rendered it 100% completely unusable

@floppy ah yeah, I've heard of this! I will have to do it sometime

@floppy Lol cool, I wonder if there is anything like this in other languages

@floppy Interesting find! I grepped around for "not a chance" and these matched:
1. config-3.8-x86_64-linux-gnu/libpython3.8.a
2. site-packages/parso/python/
3. site-packages/Cython/Compiler/

#1 is binary, but #2 and #3 both print that message if "braces" is mentioned, so __futures__ is probably handled different than normal libs.

>>> from __future__ import braces
File "<stdin>", line 1
SyntaxError: not a chance

tip of the day: You can literally travel back in time. To jump to the state a file had 10 minutes ago, use the following command:

:earlier 10m

To then go forward in time 1 minute, use this command:

:later 1m

So I wad just talking about domain names and I happened to use as an example. To my astonishment, this domain was available (it isn't any more!)

But that got me to thinking, "I wonder if is available?"

Unfortunately it isn't, but the website that hosts it is AMAZING!

@brandon mentioned that it has no JS – that's putting it mildly. Here's the full source, beautiful in its simplicity:

body {
background-image: url('home.jpg');
height: 100%;

background-position: center;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-size: cover;
