I think it's a great review.
It provokes many thoughts about the Fediverse too.
Many images tho, you've been warned.

hmmm grav seems pretty cool now that i'm looking at it closer... mayb i'll poke around w that
site struggles, recs appreciated Show more
anyone got recs for a lightweight CMS for an art blog (not a formal static portfolio) that's friendly to multi-image posts? i don't mind doing some theme coding but would prefer an active codebase that's less monolithic than wordpress haha
long, site struggles Show more
i really like photosets on tumblr bc it lets me group companion pieces together while also showing all the images on the blog feed... once you click through to a post's permalink on wordpress you can do the same (and also intersperse text and images more freely which is neat) but i'd have to make my own post thumbnail if i wanted to show more than the first image on the feed and it's just frustrating that i can't find Any blogging software that behaves the way tumblr does

- i figured harry faked his death but i wasn't expecting just how irredeemably bad he turned out to be. not every bad guy needs a redemption arc
- there's potential in a mystery revolving around the protag not speaking the first language of the rest of the cast but be careful
- i really hope anna didn't know her crush was indirectly murdering babies cause otherwise uhhh
- the final sewer chase was fun! i should definitely run a sewer dungeon at some point
why does windows install to C:\ by default? why not A:\? and why use letters at all? (medium-long, serious) Show more
CP/M, a very old operating system for very old computers, used drive letters to distinguish between each drive on a computer. the first drive would be drive A, then drive B, and so on. CP/M computers typically had two floppy disk drives (drive A and B). when a CP/M machine was given a hard drive, it would assign it the letter C, so A and B could be claimed by the two floppy disk drives.
microsoft's MS-DOS operating system aimed for some backwards compatibility with CP/M, to make things more convenient to port and to provide users migrating from CP/M with some familiarity. they kept letters A and B reserved for floppy drives, and labelled the first hard drive as drive C.
this behaviour was never changed as MS-DOS became windows. windows still labels the first hard drive as drive C, holding letters A and B aside for when you connect two floppy drives. windows still treats drives A and B differently from the other letters, even if you manually assign a hard drive (or optical drive, or USB stick...) to use it - it's still running some compatibility code to make sure floppy drives work just right. even if what you connect isn't a floppy drive.
