Hacker's Diary

A rough account of what I did with Emacs recently.

Postcards from the Edge was fun, but I wouldn't rave about it. There's a lot of sharp dialogue in it, and a few good laughs, but I guess in places it feels like it's trying a little too hard or something.

Enjoying Star Trek: Picard so far.

Hidden Figures was excellent, but I felt the sheer awfulness of Virginia's persistent segration was diluted rather a lot by humour in the movie, and shouldn't have been. But then you'd probably lose a chunk of the audience, so whatcha gonna do? Anyway. Great movie, incredible people who did incredible work and struggled to get even a fraction of the respect they deserved. Read the book, btw.

Loving how Google's spam detection is effortlessly able to flag legitimate emails I've received for literally years as junk while adding spam calendar invites directly to my calendar.
