Pandemic has made it ridiculously obvious how bad this job is.

So, time to start looking for another!

Anyone needs an electrical engineer with experience in space systems and a big interest in embedded rust?

It is very important to say 'I don't know' and to practice not knowing. Academia demands that we be experts, and if we stumble at all then we are punished for it. We are not allowed to have partial knowledge or ongoing knowledge.
But that's toxic. It's okay and good to not know things - even things in your own field.
The beauty of it all is that we will never fully know anything. We can only ever learn more.

Ask for help when you need it. It sounds simple, but trying to handle everything without help causes stress and anxiety for a lot people.

Twitter wants to decentralize because they see how fast Mastodon and other decentralized networks are growing and Jack wants to monetize that.

He doesn't care about a freer, more open internet, he cares about watching Mastodon grow and that he's not making money off it.

Are you an artist, and have HTML/CSS/Web questions?

I'm trying something new: "office hours" to answer questions, so we can all help build a better web. Don’t have a lot of spare time, but I can at least try to help point people in the right direction.

Oh god, I'm jumping between instances and checking their hashtags for people who might still be posting about netrunner. Why am I so focused right now?

I recently got into again, spending hours making decks, buying-up my brother's cards from him.

Somebody stop me (nobody stop me).

Check in with yourself a few times each day and take a moment to process your thoughts and emotions. Don’t let them build up.

Gab will join the Fediverse next month, and we at @forktogether want to be prepared.
ActivityPub is known to be leaky, so we'd like to take further measures than just suspending Gab's known domains by default.

If you know how exactly Mastodon's ActivityPub implementation leaks information, then we'd highly appreciate your input on this issue: https://github.com/florence-social/mastodon-fork/issues/108

Good Lord, reading “The Spectrum of Consciousness” by Ken Wilber, and so far, it is one of the best books about non-dual awareness that I’ve ever read. Anybody out there still doing the book club thing? This would be a great one

Pronouncing acronyms, TAATR 

Have to say, I disagree with @mike when he uses the hard G in "graphical" to argue for a hard G in GIF.

In "LASER", the S for "stimulated" isn't a hard S. In "SCUBA", the U for "underwater" isn't a short U. I think people tend to just look at the pile of letters and let their intuition guide them.

Anyway, have a great day and .

AATR, Constitutional Law, Podcast Reccomendation 

If anyone really liked the back half of the "Donuts" episode, there's a great podcast called "What Trump Can Teach Us About Con Law" where Roman Mars talks to his neighbor (who happens to be a professor in constitutional law) about all the ways this president is doing weird new (dumb) things that push at the edge cases of our constitutional system.

I highly recommend it.

Complaining about Mastodon UI 

Well, that real-estate just got a lot smaller. Now the entire column of open space under the avatar opens the post. There's still a few spaces at the top and at the bottom-right corner where I can click on a post without opening it, but it's a bit more fiddly.

It's a really small thing, but it'll annoy me until I get used to it in a few days.

Complaining about Mastodon UI 

I mostly get around Mastodon using the keyboard, and it's passable but not great. When you switch between columns you always get reset to the top of the feed - pretty annoying if you're trying to catch-up on a days worth of posts.

I've been okay with it, though, because there was so much real-estate on any given post to click on it without opening it in the third column, so I could switch columns with my mouse and continue up or down with the keyboard.
