Why is it "one hundred" in the title, but "hundred" in the list itself?

There are only finitely many orderings of the alphabet, so eventually you'll repeat. It might take a while though.

It might get into a cycle of switching between a few combinations, like aitch arr and ay switching places over and over or something

India exported a crapload of vaccines to Bhutan, which only has 750k people, earlier this year. Then Bhutan kept it in storage until their buddhist leaders said "the stars were right" and then they basically vaccinated everyone at once.

To my eyes the contrast is fine on most of the site, and in a few places where it sucks, it already sucked in full color. Can someone help me understand what the problem is with turning it grayscale?

Edit: According to an expert quoted in this article, the problems are non-accessibility-related https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2021/apr/12/visually-impaired-users-complain-rail-websites-greyscale-prince-philip

But that doesn't explain why people with visual impairments are complaining. Though, actually, the person quoted in the first tweet never said they had any visual impairments. I don't know, I feel like I'm missing something obvious.

I'm only basing this on accidentally switching to the high contrast colour scheme in Windows 98 a couple of times, but for some people it's easier to see toxic green on navy blue or whatever than just dark grey on white. But then the actual colour scheme on the website is not particularly high contrast either. Maybe Brett was just having a go there.

The British never complain. They stiffen their upper lip and winge, whine and moan.

I've been trying to get a new video card since Oct but they're always out of stock or being sold for twice the sales price. Anyway today I looked at a site that allows backorders and had the following helpful graph supposedly covering the last two weeks worth of orders.

It is a powerful visual metaphor for my posting.


I like that the process of graphics card order fulfilment follows a slightly smooth interpolation.

The process is not only not instantaneous it is also not perfectly linear, it accelerates and decelerates as the card comes closer to existing.

Which implies the possibility of a sort of zeno's graphics card where it edges ever closer to existing without actually reaching it.
