After Excel, PowerBI and now Apache NiFi, I'm taken aback by the complexity of tools people invent to *not* learn a programmation language.

I felt the pull of a summoning, and was dragged to the depths of Hell again.
"What now?" I say as I appear in the mystic sigil.
"Hi, Bob," the demon says. "Our printer has stopped working."
"Release a soul."
"You want my I.T support? You summon me from my sofa? You pay."

Wall-E could've been a great bittersweet love story about how we live on through our creations, and what that says about what we choose to spend our time on Earth creating, and it'll always be kind of tragic to me that it gets cold feet 20 minutes in and changes into Idiocracy

I'm not sure what you can do with this info, but I personnaly find it fascinating.

Anyway, after reading multiple Wikipedia articles, I finally stole the explications and examples from this excellent reddit thread about this meme you'll now be able to understand (if you were'nt already), and pedantically invalidate:


An abjad (like arabic or hebrew) can be pure or vowelled. In a pure abjad, only the consonants are marked and the reader infers the vowels:

> btmn

A vowelled abjad looks a lot like an alphasyllabary, except there is a diacritic marking the absence of vowel:

> bªt⁰mªn⁰

Finally an abugida (like Ethiopian Geʽez) is a syllabary in which you add diacritics to change (or remove) the vowels. You can also think of it as an abjad with default vowels for each consonant:

> [ba][ta]⁰[ma][na]⁰


I just learned the existence (and difference between) alphasyllabaries, abjad and abugida, and now I want to use this but I have no idea how, so I'll share it here.

If you're reading this you know how alphabets work:

> batman

You probably know how syllabaries work too (each sign being a syllable, like japanese kana):

> [ba][to][ma][no]

Now, an alphasyllabary is basically an alphabet where vowels are diacritics, ie small modifications (accents, dots, …) to the consonants:

> bªtmªn

Remember that one time Leonard Cohen started a rap feud with Kanye West and then died, leaving Kanye no chance to respond?

This is the greatest thing I've ever seen. "I am the Kanye West of Kanye West" ahahaha.

Just figured out that I couldn't download Actions artifacts because for some reason it's now reserved to logged users...

And if like me you don't want to log in, you can use the service someone made. 👍

just took psychic damage from learning that the street fighter 2 character artists did all the sprite work without using mice, just keyboard

there’s no way for me to interpret this sign as anything but an act of aggression

The stunning silence of sleeping children is like stumbling upon an old friend you haven’t seen in years, except it’s been hours.
