@shawn I am weird and found the “rainbow fruit salad” effect fatiguing and distracting from reading, so I’ve visually muted syntax highlighting for years now. (My coding font of choice is also Verdana. >.> )

@neil@33MHz A good ‘prompt’ trick: in most shells/environments, make “:” a function that does nothing, set your prompt to start with “: “ (note the space) and end with “;”. Then you can copy/paste whole lines, which is much faster in most terminals.
Apps [nyti.ms]that ask for access to users’ locations, prompting them for permission while leaving out important details about how the data will be used, may run afoul of federal rules on deceptive business practices, said Maneesha Mithal, an FTC privacy official.
