My Perfect (G)UI Random Thoughts
View perfect-ui.txt
Perfect UI has context
Middle is what I'm doing, surroundings change dynamically
Recently read that somebody wanted middle of their code editor be edit and
surroundings display usage, libraries, source of the code use
Why would I want "a browser" be a real separate window/application, if it
could be just a scalable/dragdrop component around my editing things

Falsehoods programmers cannot believe about non-existing things

There is a huge body of valid and yet faked or non-existing things you can use freely e.g. for testing purposes:
* The "Null Island" being a geographical convenience, non-existing island: "Null Island is a fictional island in the Gulf of Guinea
added to the Natural Earth public domain map dataset, located where the equator crosses the prime meridian, at coordinates 0°N 0°E."
see details: - it even has a fake travel website :)
* On TV, you see the recurring fake phone number:

* 2-4 spoons of lemon juice (to taste, I like with more)

or, like this:
