Kinda bored with HTTP, what are some other good protocols

I figured it out! I ran a script that watched for X CreateNotify events and printed the process that sent them, and the culprit was software a friend of mine wrote and I will be respecting their privacy at this time.

Does anybody know if it's possible to get the xprop style properties of a window after it's been closed?

OK the window spawns every 60 seconds and it is driving me nuts

My computer keeps doing this thing where it spawns a tiny window in the center of the screen that is just barely perceptible and disappears immediately, at regular intervals. It's vaguely annoying because I can, in fact, see it, and it also messes with focus and cursor placement. Does anybody know what this is or have any ideas for how I can find out?

OK I didn't get in to 35C3! Now I have options about what to do over New Year's!

Stan Lee gave me a reference to make sure the other party heard my name correctly, and for that I'll always be grateful

I think some folks can't distinguish between chaotic good and lawful neutral

Does anyone want to play-test a crossword puzzle I made?

What do we think is the *single* US state not represented in the Hunts Point Produce Market?

I love the idea of carrying a little USB key on my keyring but I think the stress of it has made a handful of drives fail very quickly

I always forget that Yoshi Committed Tax Fraud, and it's so funny every time I learn again

I'm about The River years old, which feels *fine*, but it's hard to imagine that I'm almost Nebraska

It was pretty recent that it really clicked that I could deliberately listen to the music that older artists were making when they were my age and it's had a pretty profound effect on me

update to this: I had the date for the first thing wrong (meaning my 2019 calendar accuracy was literally 0%) and I will be able to do both

Yesterday I put into my calendar my very first plans of 2019, so I'm booked on Feb 7. Today I get invited to speak out of town on Feb 7. How does this always happen?!
