I’m so glad things like this exist.
@Floppy Oooh! I remember reading about this when it started! (Back when I was, y'know, young and attractive and happy..) - isn't it sumfink to do with the Long Now foundation? Like, those folks who leftpad the year, as in "18th April 02019"?
@ej I don’t think it’s the same people, but the idea is of course very similar. Apparently you can go listen to Longplayer in London, I need to go do that sometime. I guess I’ve got a while though :)
