"In every man, heredity and environment have combined to produce a creature of certain abilities and desires—including a deeply ingrained need to function in such a way that his life will be MEANINGFUL. A man has to BE something; he has to matter."
"People today actually manage to live, many people, as isolated, alienated individuals. In the most advanced societies, people live as alienated individuals, with no community to speak about, with a very small family. It's no longer the big extended family. It's now a very small family, maybe just a spouse, maybe one or two children, and even they, they might live in a different city, in a different country, and you see them maybe once in every few months, and that's it. And the amazing thing is that people live with that. And that's just 200 years."

Глюки старого Emacs-a: "One particularly bad example I ran into is my Emacs hanging mysteriously when autocompleting on some two character suffixes. After much searching it turned out to be a known issue where if what I was completing looked like a domain name Emacs would try to ping it because of an interaction between autocompletion, file finding, and remote server support."
Последнее время столкнулся с faggot-ами из transtelecom.net. Просто молча банят ресурсы у себя на гейте, без всяких уведомлений. Видишь интересную ссылку где-нибудь на hackernews-ах, залетаешь — отлуп. Думаешь, что за херь, пингуешь, всё становится понятно. Надеюсь их кто-нибудь когда-нибудь серьёзно заломает и набьёт их тупые рожи очередным WannaCry-ом или чем-то подобным.
Полезный add-on для Firefox-a -> github.com в случае отлупа проверяет через isup.me доступен ли сайт, и если да, то показывает это иконкой в urlbar-e. А далее можно через тот же FoxyProxy (там есть такая функциональность) обновить ресуср Tor-ом или чего у вас там.
