    There's already #tildes on freenode, but I don't really see the point of a chat.

    I've been getting back into Dota 2, which I haven't played much of over the last few years.

    I'm using an x1 carbon, which works for me without any problems (except the fingerprint reader). It's a bit expensive for the hardware you get, but in my case work paid for it.

    Otherwise any of the other thinkpads will probably be okay for you.

    For my needs, it's great. The fediverse doesn't need to take over the world, just enough interesting people in my social circles.

    Pretty standard:

    Write a program that prints the numbers from 1 to 100. But for multiples of three print “Fizz” instead of the number and for the multiples of five print “Buzz”. For numbers which are multiples of both three and five print “FizzBuzz”.

    The twist: come up with the most creative or unusual way to solve this in your language of choice.

    When I joined, I was excited by a site that aims to be something different to reddit. However, it seems like there's a large influx of people who seem to either want a reddit 2.0, or are influenced by reddit culture enough that it carries over here.

    Maybe limit the invites from reddit for a bit until the current set of members have some time to settle in?

    This is what I do. Having to enter my password to edit it as root is generally enough of a discouragement that I go back to whatever I'm actually supposed to be doing.

    I actively dislike lyrics, and seek out instrumental music or languages I don't understand. I tend to listen to music while I work on things, so seem to find words distracting.

    I'm a big fan of lobste.rs. I don't post very often, but like reading the front page once a day. I like the fact that it's low volume, high in technical depth.
