I'm not a fan of tail call
optimization, but still, I didn't quite realize that
gcc will optimize tail calls if given the
-O2 option (found while reading Hacker News).
Okay, this is something I have to try out:
int main(int argc,char *argv)
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
[spc]lucy:/tmp>gcc -O2 forever.c
(several minutes go by)
That's interesting. Not sure how it'll impact any code I write, but
still, it's interesting.
Find any page you have visited quickly and easily. Shows your
browsing history as a tree of tabs, with thumbnail screenshots of
the web-pages in every tab you have opened.
Via Hacker News,
I remember talking about a browser
history mechanism like this seven years ago. I'm surprised it's taken
this long to implement this.
I'm also surprised that there can be Firefox extensions that are
operating system specific (in this case, Windows only—sigh).

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
