How to Send an Email

Enter into the terminal:

$ sendmail -v [email address]

Then type your message.  When finished, press Ctrl+d for EOF (end of file).

(Ctrl+d must be pressed twice on my system, don't ask me why)

(sendmail is actually in /usr/sbin on my system, don't ask me why)

The only thing I don't like about Vim is how you have to reach all the way over and hit the Esc key.

Best Games

These are the best games of all time, in my opinion.

The Witcher 1/2/3

Tactical fighting games.  Very deep, clearly made by people who have read much.

Morrowind, Oblivion

Story-based RPGs with great modding support.  Skyrim is not listed because the dragons are too small and it's kind of dull.  However these games are fantastic.

Master of Orion: Conquer the Stars

A worthy successor to moo, moo 2, and moo 3.

Red Alert 3

Fast-paced RTS.

The Binding of Isaac

Probably Turing complete, if I had to guess.

This is the worst of all possible worlds.

Pangloss was close, but off the mark.  This is not the best of all possible worlds - it is the worst.  Very few possible worlds support life at all, and almost all of those that do, do so very badly.

Asians for President!

I think they would make a good president.
