"Why are we so bad at software engineering?" by Jake Voytko https://www.bitlog.com/2020/02/12/why-are-we-so-bad-at-software-engineering/
Love this post.
Things you can do instead of watching YouTube videos:
- Work on that creative project you've had in your head for a while
- Read that book you've been wanting to start/finish
- Look up (on duckduckgo) information about something you're curious to learn about
- Dance to some music
- Make a tik tok video
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 #netrunner again, spending hours making decks, buying-up my brother's cards from him.
Somebody stop me (nobody stop me).
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 #Zhaif4Laif.
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.
This is an instance for folks who follow The Liturgists Podcast, The Alien Podcast, and other things The Liturgists create.
