Der Vorstand meiner Firma hat heute früh eine Mail rumgeschickt mit dem Betreff »Zieht Euch warm an!«

... denn die Heizung im Büro war ausgefallen.

@trwnh Relying on an address for, well, addressing, seems reasonable to me because addresses are more stable than display names, and consequently, assumed identities. I might wish to change how people perceive me (i. e. change my display name) without moving to a different account.

@trwnh I always had the impression that especially Twitter apps rely too heavily on the display name, given how people abuse said field with hordes of emoji etc. – My current client displays the display name in bold, and the address (foo@bar.social) in fine print next to it. Tagging users has a built-in search feature as I type a few letters, which searches over both addresses and display names. I consider this a good balance.

@trwnh So… there is a display name field, and my client displays it most prominently. So I usually think of you as »infinite love Ⴟ«. This is a free-text field, you can be whomstever you want. Similar to maybe your first name or a c/o in a postal address, which is in many cases not relevant to the delivery service.

@DrRetro The CPython implementation represents integer objects between -5 and 256 as singletons, cf. the rather obscure sentence under docs.python.org/3/c-api/long.h and also stackoverflow.com/questions/30

You should also not productively use "is" to compare integers, is compares object identity, which in the case of integers is not the same as numeric identity for the aforementioned reason.

@rjt Don't know what window manager you're using, but askubuntu.com/questions/986688 may or may not contain the relevant setting for you.

@trwnh I liked Toot! on iOS better than Tusky on Android, and it's an indie app developed by @WAHa_06x36 .
