I want to improve my writing.

Who of you can recommend freelance editors who could go through English articles I've written, together with me? I'm interested in feedback on structure, understandability, wording, these things. Preferably in Berlin, but Skype works, too. Thanks!

Today is the 30th anniversary of the release of They Might Be Giants' album Flood.

I used Inkscape to create the kawaii toast, CSS shape-outside to handle the text wrap around the toast, and Firefox Dev Tools to create the text wrap path.

I may have written this entire post just because I wanted to try all that stuff.

Anyone have a good system for buying, storing, and listening to music? In particular, I'm interested in hearing from people who who buy a lot of CDs from artists who aren't in things like Amazon, iTunes, or Spotify. Do you have a method for accessing your library while you're traveling?

I had a minor revelation researching computer networking in the early 1970s:

the reason that the unique identifier for any internet service is called an ACCOUNT... is because it originally correlated directly to a BILLING ACCOUNT, like in an accounting system. Now that I see it, it seems blatantly obvious, but for an entire lifetime of internet usage I never thought about what "account" actually means (or meant).
