Some random things I learned today

Thoughts

In no particular order:

  • Nigeria overtook South Africa to become Africa’s largest economy in 2014.

  • Carrefour is a French/Norman word for crossroads. I used to go to one of their hypermarkets at Suntec City in Singapore back in the day.

  • about:mozilla in the latest Firefox references Rust with “the Beast fashioned new structures from oxidised metal and proclaimed their glories.”

  • HISTTIMEFORMAT should be defined in your local .kshrc, .zshrc, or equivalent.

  • The median age of all the world’s donkeys is probably somewhere in the middle.

Author bio and support

Me!

Ruben Schade is a technical writer and IaaS engineer in Sydney, Australia who refers to himself in the third person in bios. Wait, not BIOS… my brain should be EFI by now.

The site is powered by Hugo, FreeBSD, and OpenZFS on OrionVM, everyone’s favourite cloud infrastructure provider.
