Well, I was happy that two of my Reddit subreddits' posts proved popular and
sparked some discussion over there. I also started setting up this page on my
personal wiki (based on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ikiwiki ) for the ongoing
"/dev/null is WebScale" meme -
http://shlomifishswiki.branchable.com/slash-dev-null_is_WebScale/ . There was
also a facebook discussion about it, but I'll have to ask the person I talked
with for permission to share it - it was both amusing and insightful.

Anyway, I'm not too active on wikimedia wikis - mostly just fixing typos and
doing other cleanups as I go.

The other day someone on freenode spelled "exercise" as "exercize", twice in
the same sentence, and when I pointed to him that it was not the correct
spelling, he insisted it was the American English spelling. However, both
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Special:Search?search=exercize&searchToken=8jsnwk7uwxs57egwx936j59d9
and https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/exercize agreed with me that it
was not a correct spelling, even in American English. And he claimed I was
trolling. Oh well.
