I was about to recommend zenodo.org as a data repository then discovered it has been down for over three hours. .

Microsoft Word Online 

This time I added a row to a table, tried to copy an existing row into the new row (to maintain formatting), but things got glitchy. So I hit CTRL-Z and it undid the addition of two rows (!), and then I hit CTRL-Y and it crashed.

WTF Microsoft?!

Elsevier IP address blocking 

I hate Elsevier ScienceDirect and their trigger-happy attempts to protect their "intellectual property" that prevent researchers from accessing the content for which our universities paid vast sums of money **so that we could access it in the first place**

Open access forever!

*Yes I just got blocked trying to access a paper and I'm pissed.

Please do not subject your students to course readings consisting of misaligned images of books you captured with your low-quality phone camera in low-light conditions.

My eyes are bleeding. This does not help my brain process the info.

A student
