              Unexpected use case for BART's quarter-dispensing ticket vending machines: antiquated coin-operated washing machines. +@ceejbot

                @ceejbot So Clipper is only for parking validation, not payment? That’s very…1970s style, I guess.

                  @ceejbot I don’t know why, but that made me chuckle uncontrollably. Perhaps it’s my tired brain.

                                        Just came across this wonderfully ambiguous snippet: `<input type="checkbox" checked />`. The specter of XHTML seems to haunt us to this day.
