I write embedded Linux code, I’ve worked at a Linux desktop for the past few jobs — for over a decade. My personal laptop has been a Mac for as long … Continue reading On custom laptop clings
UPDATE: Since posting this, I have two new designs (a fake power outlet plus “Free Paper Cowboy Hat“). Additionally, all of these stickers are now available to purchase. A couple of weeks ago, a funny image of prank paper towel dispenser stickers made the rounds on Twitter. I searched the internet for those stickers, but … Continue reading “Paper Towel, Please”
