Going though my Computer History Museum photos and I found the original copy of this 1971 Telnet system diagram from RFC 158. Now you can compare the charming pencil on lined notebook paper to the official scanned version that's been the only one available for decades.
I love this stuff, it reminds me that the internet was invented by humans jotting things down on whatever paper was at hand and not godlike programmers planning everything exquisitely.

I think I finally figured out why my twitter account shows two more tweets than I've actually tweeted: after my various rounds of deletions, the two oldest remaining tweets of mine were manual retweets from 2013 of accounts that no longer exist.
I can't delete them from the web app because it redirects me to another page. So now I'm waiting to see if I can use the API again, now that you have to apply for it.
First official day off I've taken in quite a while (not including being between jobs). I'm glad I'm in a state where accrued vacation is paid out when you leave, but because I didn't know exactly when I was leaving or how long I'd be between jobs, I used very little time off in the past year at my last job, then started with very little at this one. And I'm obligated to use four days to cover part of winter break closure.
It's kind of wild to me that of all the things I've written online that it didn't seem like all that many people read at the time, a blog post I wrote as in intern a decade ago has ended up in a bunch of citations:
