Git is planning to switch to SHA-256 soon. This is all great news, but the best thing is the command to convert an existing repo to the new hash. It reads like a shitpost and gets better with each argument:

git convert-repo --to-hash=sha-256 --frobnicate-blobs --climb-subtrees --liability-waiver=none --use-shovels --carbon-offsets

The young dragon observed the start of their first hoard.

A few silver and copper pieces. No gold or gems yet. There was a very pretty marble though, and they kept that on a chain, closest to their heart.

They remembered the little girl who gave it to them in exchange for a fly around her castle. The dragon wondered whatever became of her. Probably a grandmother by now; humans grew so fast.

It sighed and went back to work delivering fire.

My new e-bookshop is open!

I believe discovery, fairness and inclusivity are at the heart of digital bookselling.

Inclusive and DRM-free
All formats for all devices, no need to convert. You get a DRM-free e-book that works and is yours to keep.

Fair means fair
Authors get 80% of the profit. No deep discounts, or e-books that cost the same as the print version.

Genuine discovery
A curated e-bookshop, every title read and loved before hitting the shelves.

Tomorrow’s date will be written as an eight-digit palindrome around the world, the first time this has happened in 900 years.

The coincidence is rare because countries use differing conventions. February 2, 2020, is a palindrome whether expressed as day/month/year (02/02/2020), month/day/year (02/02/2020), or year/month/day (2020/02/02).

This happened last on November 11, 1111, and it won’t happen again until March 3, 3030.

I'd spent weeks skulking the paddocks in twilight, spooking shepherds, milk maids and the occasional merchant. Soon every missing ewe or calf was blamed on The Great Beast, or the Walking-Wolf, or She-of-Fangs.

I'd carefully selected a town without Hunters. Soon my partner would swagger into town, accept some coin and she'd defeat me in messy, howling battle.

I was starting to suspect I wasn't the only beast stalking these lands though...
