I made a post last week, ostensibly about my experiences with Google Wifi. It was actually about much more. It had an umlaut in the title, so I wasn’t entirely surprised when it didn’t show up on Planet.m.o, thinking maybe foreign languages caused inter-Planetary indigestion. After some debugging, we found that Planet’s parser was indeed Read More

It’s been a hard day’s night


The impending release has been heretofore painful in a way reminiscent of the release, but interestingly enough, it’s been so for completely different reasons.
