If you use the term "hairshirt computing" as a pejorative then I'm complaining at you. 

People who say "I'm tired of all these articles on hairshirt computing" aren't nearly as tired of the articles as the people who have their hobbies grouped together and disregarded on the basis of them not being designed for the commenter are of hearing the term "hairshirt computing".

If you see something that's designed for someone other than you, go find something that *is* and buoy that up instead of painting people who are different from you as idiots.

Shitting on people's personal projects and technological experiments just means there's less variety in the world to choose from.

@grimmware hi :)
I've never heard the phrase "hairshirt computing", what is it referring to?
