"#Pacman in 512 bytes"
Pillman is Oscar "Nanochess" Toledo's reimplementation of Pacman ("a game about a yellow man eating pills") in 512 bytes -- small enough to fit in a boot sector -- written in 8088 assembler.

A potentially-useful approach might be to prepare some sort of document containing evidence of various sorts, including:
(a) Cases where businesses, educational institutes, etc. refused to use GIMP on the basis of its name.
(b) Statements by individuals that its name has resulted in them not using GIMP.
(c) Linguistic evidence that 'gimp' is indeed an offensive slur and, further, not simply a en-US localisation issue.

A conversation @email@example.com reminded me about a useful tip for keybindings in Emacs. By default C-z is bound to `suspend-emacs`, which I never want to do, and always annoys me when I hit it by mistake. So let's unbind that:
But further, we can now define C-z as a prefix!
(defalias 'ctl-z-keymap (make-sparse-keymap))
(defvar ctl-z-map (symbol-function 'ctl-z-keymap)
"Global keymap for characters following C-z.")
(define-key global-map "\C-z" 'ctl-z-keymap)
@matt At least on Void (with runit), they seem to work perfectly. I've used it for Inform7 https://flathub.org/apps/details/com.inform7.IDE - which is a really difficult to build (and currently non-free) package, and flatpak makes it really easy.
But decades have passed since Mr G's generous invitation. Entire generations have lived, died, & raised children inside the city. No one knows how to navigate the wilderness anymore. & even if they could, why would they want to? Thorns & weeds have overgrown the wasteland ; it's much safer to stay inside the city walls. Besides, it's cozy & we have everything we need in here.
