#LibriVox is a free audiobook site, where volunteers upload self-made audio recordings of public domain books:

The official site is at librivox.org but we would recommend the official mirror at Archive.org:

archive.org/details/librivoxau

The audio quality is variable, but it is entirely free and you can use the reviews on Archive.org as a guide to quality.

Imagine if we actually *had* user agents.

Like, imagine if our computers were doing things we wanted them to do, automatically, on the network. And, it was our computers doing these things, instead of a rental service like ifttt or google alerts that's selling info on the back end. Imagine if they stopped doing things when we told them to stop.

Imagine if non-technical users had this too.

'User agent' is a great idea that has been weirdly perverted.

Nobody these days (even highly technical people) has a user agent. (Maybe @drwho does.)

A user agent is a piece of software controlled by the *user*, that performs the automatic tasks the *user* has instructed it to. It communicates with other user agents, automatically, on the user's behalf.

Today, the term 'user agent' means 'long, misleading browser-lineage-identification string'. It identifies one of ~3 corporations.

Also we could probably do with actual proper official names for the Star Wars trilogies than just "the original trilogy" and "the prequels"

Why not "The Anakin Trilogy", "The Luke Trilogy" and later "The Rey Trilogy" at least?

Upstairs neighbors dropped something on the floor. It bounced in a perfect "shave and a haircut..." rhythm.

Knocked twice to finish it before I could stop myself.
