e38e had become much like https://github.com/jezen/is-thirteen or https://github.com/jackdclark/five in my opinion. Except instead of being a silly NPM package it was a silly Rosetta Stone of programs that returned "e" in some way. The only difference was the ridiculous name that used the full character limit.
The Conway's Game of Life mentioned at the bottom of this blog was a thing of beauty, so I hope the creator is able to get an archive and recover it.
E: Turns out the Repo is back up. So here's Conways Game of E: https://github.com/eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee/eeeeeeee...
I would have liked DaveClark/Five.

This sentence just made my day. Thanks for posting.
I'd like to design an RPG where some stats can become alignments. This would be just to have people identify their characters as Chaotic Stupid or Lawful Clumsy.
1) edit a file using the web interface, creating a PR in the process (assuming you don’t have write privs to the repo)
2) fork the repo to your own user account but use a shorter name for your fork, clone your copy and make a PR the usual way
Both of these work - you just can’t clone the original e98e repo directly.
That if you were an intelligent person, you could in the past be a doctor or a lawyer and also a philosopher. But nowadays, all the intelligent people working for Amazon and Google think they have philosophizing opinions.
But unlike past professional disciplines, computer science, I.T. and STEM stuff is actually so removed from society, that these people have nothing really valuable to add to the daily conversation in society at all. So instead, they engage in the massive production of one-dimensional "hot take" content, broadly called "Irony" or "weird Internet." This provides the facade of meaning to their otherwise obviously finance and prestige driven lives.
