@gcupc @nolan I make no claim that any of my thoughts is original πŸ˜ƒ .

The annoying thing about backwards-compatibility is that your mistakes stay, even after you've fixed them.

So, I have been reading the stuck-at-homes, and... I don't get it.

I mean there's a few nice jokes in there, but I'm at page 361, and so far it's slow as molasses.

The idea that private hierarchies are inherently more "efficient" at running things than public administration, non-profits, or commons, has been disproved so many times by examples like these, it boggles the mind that some people still believe it.

htw - "hi the way" - for when you need to say something "by the way", but also "hi".

@eevee I mean every gigantic tech company has a massive fiscal incentive to become as vertically integrated as possible a la Apple. That's why MS tests the "UWP or GTFO" waters periodically. Google's shareholders' dicks get hard at the idea of them not having to depend on Linux, Java, vendors, etc.

I have way too many pet peeves. I'm more of a peeve farmer. A shepherd of peeves, if you will.

Day 110 on here. I still have not been declared an enemy of the furry people.

Wait, that smiley thing on the web interface opens an emoji selector?

Is that how y'all have been doing that? 🧠 🍞

So, fish apparently today exceeded 1000 forks on github.

Yay for meaningless milestones!

( - which I'm still not sure is the right one - this is about the computer "shell", the hashtag is also about actual fish. Maybe ? Or just stop using hashtags?)

"The elephant enjoyed procreations, but hated telemarketings."

"The sheep enjoyed tomorrows, but hated chroniclers."

Beautiful sentiment!

If you really want to help Firefox succeed, file a bug on when you find a broken website. Don't just switch back to Chrome; let Mozilla know there's a problem so they can try to fix it.

When browsers lose market share, they fall into the "compatibility death spiral." Sites don't bother to test, they break, and users flee to the browser that "just works." Mozilla is fighting this battle every day, and it just got harder.

In accessibility news, Slay The Spire adds support for swamp german. Parades in the Netherlands and South Netherlands to commence immediately.

(I actually never learned to write dutch, so more exposure to it might be nice?)

I cooked soup for about 30 people yesterday.

A recipe I had never tried before (and didn't stick to anyway, because I'm incapable of doing that), and it went over quite well.


I really need to meet someone named "Jim", just so that I can call them "Jimothy".
