This 0 Data App thing seems like a nice encapsulation of a number of ideas I've had about good application design.
Question for cyclists.
Having robots on the sidewalk seems like a terrible idea. Do you have the same concerns about robots on bike lanes?
Any idea about shipping times?
The laptop is supposed to ship the April 9th but I'm leaving the US on April 16th....
More proof that Spartakus and the Sun Beneath the Sea (ie Les Mondes Engloutis) is real and not sci-fi.

And I have some emotional attachment to this printer.
It's the printer I got when my father died, when I suddenly needed to print and scan lots of documents- send things to lawyers, etc.
It is my first laser printer, and it's only needed its toner replaced once ~9 years ago. I knew when I bought the 7500 page toner cartridge that it would likely outlast the printer itself.
I'll try to give it a cursory cleaning and hope document scanning works again, because I'm attached to it.
Examples of trouble:
It never worked amazingly, but print times are super slow. I can't get it to print anything from WIndows at all anymore (this is a problem because there's a proprietary extension to PDF that I need for some documents that are unreadable in Linux), and now the automatic document feeder for the scanner isn't working.
None of these are complete showstoppers, but collectively they make this printer a lot harder to use than it should be.
11 years though... that's a long time.
ActivityPub implementers... Are JSON pointers (ie mydoc.json#someref ) something that you use?
I've come across it in https://json-schema.org/understanding-json-schema/structuring.html and was thinking it would be good if I have a collection of objects and wanted to make a static document representing them that I could simply have a collection (ie a JSON array) and then refer to them by ref?
Why left-wing Canadians don't like Americans
I've 100% experienced this as an American whose spent significant amounts of time in Canada.
Canada has barely vaccinated any of its population. The US is vaccinating more people per day than Canada has so far.
While Canada does suffer a long tail problem, a majority of the Canadian population live within 100 miles of the US border, and 82% of Canadians live in cities (Toronto, Quebec, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, etc.).
Compare to Israel, a much poorer country, which has vaccinated 50% of not only its own population, but also Palestinians.
Step it up Canada!
