...has become my default browser since this morning. I was tried to constant nagging from chrome that something went wrong last time I closed it, every time I opened it. So far, I felt everything is big, text, spaces, context menu. I managed to reduce first two. I still need to find where can I tell it to make context menu smaller.
Something right with the world today
And everybody knows it's wrong
But we can tell 'em no or we could let it go
But I'd would rather be a hanging on
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
Glad I dont get paid per line of code
Years back, I worked with a product that had a limit of 32K lines of code
We used a framework that used up 21K of them
I spent so much time reducing the number of lines used so we could get all the functionality in
Id have ended up paying my employer
The 8 space idea was around from the early days of Unix, and the only the terminals were basic teletypes (electric typewriters). I Have never understood why anyone thought that was a good idea on a device that generally could only print 80 characters across the page.
Yes, it is waste of space, I feel. Or was it a mistake:
Australian Dev 1: Keep a tab on it, mate. I am going out for coffee.
Non-Australian Dev 1: tab on what? (didn't hear term mate)
Australian Dev 1: mate.
Non-Australian Dev 1: (again misheard) ah, keep tab on 8. Sure, but it is weird though.
And that caused this mishap.
