I don't know how things work in your office, but in mine, seizing the means of production would mean nationalizing the coffee maker.

feel free to block @russsaidwords who seems to not want to put a cw on their confusing and misleading posts of news articles and also does not want to put pronouns in their foss bio!

The tabs are back, but the trust in Firefox is once again shattered.

You never click "Unsubscribe" in the super tiny font at the bottom of the email and it opens a web page that just says "Well fuck you too buddy".

I mean, we can all get fooled, but if you're not doing anything to change your thinking even after someone demonstrates that you are wrong, you are a fool through and through.

I cannot believe how rotten it is to upload a large file to S3 Glacier from the CLI. Wow, just, wow, what a terrible experience. They want the user to use multi-part uploads, and they want the user to chunk the file down to under 100mb per part, and then they want the user to calculate a fucking tree hash on each part which culminates in a reduced and final hash. Like what the fuck are you thinking here?

If this quote can describe your web form, it may be too long: "There are fields, Neo, endless fields where human beings are no longer born...we are grown."

"Decadent" chocolate? What in the world is decadent about anything that is powdered and added to water? If you ask me, they should be in jail on fraud charges.

Not once have I ever seen a website say "Made with 😡". It's always this "Made with ❤️" bullshit. Give me a real time estimate on that issue: "It's a 💯". Be honest about your design choices: 😣. And your editor theme? 🤢

Tonight was a big blow to my "let's try to get Text_Editor_X to be an IDE" after blowing through several X's. I'll stick with an IDE from the get-go from now on when editing code.

NeoVim is still my text editor of choice, but I gave Sublime Text 3 and VS Code a shot as well, and nothing came close to the out-of-the-box experience and performance of a certain well-known IDE from a certain company well-known for making them...

Deno just hit v1: deno.land/v1 - might be time to learn some TypeScript!
