@ndw how come there are more odd numbers than even numbers?—@TheMainstand
@ndw *An* infinite sum of the integers is -1/12. (Or rather, the analytic continuation of the series is -1/12.)—@tabatkins

Twitter client for Linux? #lazyweb —@ndw
@ndw Why do you need a client other than a Web browser?—@hsivonen
@ndw #turses if you want a cli-based client. #turpial is a good GUI client (gtk based). Choqok - haven't used - is a KDE client.—@CanOfBees
@ndw Why do you need a client other than #Emacs? Try `twittering-mode' https://t.co/jB5Me8l8t8—@MenteaXML
@MenteaXML Ah! Now that sounds like a plan!—@ndw
@ndw ... the website :\ and sometimes perl scripts.—@gcarothers
@gcarothers @ndw I use the web site and "Pin tab" in the browser (also pin Evernote, OWA (for calendar), and a few others.—@cramerdw
@ndw another nice cli-client I haven't used in a while is #ttyter, but I don't know if it's API compliant these days.—@CanOfBees
@CanOfBees @ndw Still API compliant, you just have to make sure you give it -ssl=1 otherwise it gets sad.—@tjh
@ndw oops, meant #ttytter.—@CanOfBees

Trying to read students tests. Most readable handwritten text in a Latin alphabet comes from students who have Cyrillic as a native one.—@jirkakosek

The Twitter API has been sending me 403s for about a week. Looks like my auth token and secret are still good. Anyone know what's changed?—@ndw
