Please, folks, don't hesitate to tell someone what they mean to you. Don't wait to thank someone's kindness. There is no good reason to wait, and you never know when they'll be gone. Life's precious. Live the hell out of it.

@darius I don't know why this didn't occur to me earlier, but IBM's heavy use of basic non-relational record-oriented data storage must have been a huge historical nod to tape storage. "Find this record set and then I'll iterate it for the data I want" is totally a natural metaphor if you use a sequential storage system.

I really lack for any kind of aesthetic role model that speaks to my non-binary-but-athletic AMAB self.

had a brief outage this afternoon when our AWS EC2 instance became "unreachable". I don't know why, but we were able to reboot it and bring us back online.

If you have a problem with your source code management, and you decide to solve it with git submodules, you now have six problems.

@epilanthanomai I think it might be fun for us to skin but don't really know where we'd get started. You got any designer friends who'd like to give us a quote?

Some days, all I want is to is have my old German hacker buddy back so we can pop herbal ecstacy, play original edition NetRunner, and wait for Quake to finish downloading over the modem (preferably without call waiting interrupting it)

The future teaches you to be alone; the present to be afraid and cold. So, if I can shoot rabbits, then I can shoot fascists.

Attention users! We appear to be back up and stable. The disk storage has been boosted from 8GB to 100GB, which should hold us for a while. Report issues to me or @epilanthanomai

Attention users! There will be a brief outage while I attempt to increase the size of our storage!

I'm interested in papers that cover the psychology of why people do not contribute to open source and constantly complain about cost of maintenance/support agreements but accept it in proprietary software services

You wake up one day and get yourself to grind.
Your grind pays in many ways.
You get good at your grind.
You get known for your grind.
You get used for your grind.
But you're winning on your grind.
You say you were born for your grind.
And then you don't need your grind.
And you pick another grind because it's a habit.
And you you're not sure anything is real but the grind you don't need.
