Thought of the day: everyone praises that being a developer is easy cuz there's so much work around, but it's so damn hard to find something that doesn't corrupt your soul, smashes your ethics and doesn't compromise your morals. Ignoring that yeah, there's lots of jobs around 🙄

Bhavani Esapathi (twitter.com/@bhaesa) is my friend and a dear, wonderful person who has been battling autoimmune disease for as long as I’ve known her and doing so while helping others. Now the Tories want to hand her a death sentence and deport her. We cannot let this happen.

“Emotionally, intellectually, ecologically, cars desecrate the spirit of existence. They kill us quickly (collision) or slowly (air pollution, lack of exercise).“

A great new post from @kyleislikekyle on the life we miss when we are in cars.

#Firefox without Librefox crawls like it's carrying a backpack full of weapons-grade Naquadah :drake_dislike:

I'm really frustrated with IPFS. I run one of the more popular pinning services, Eternum.io, and the IPFS node eminently *sucks* for this.

Pinning is synchronous, so you pin objects to the queue and hope they're available. If they aren't, pinning gets blocked until your pinning requests time out, only you don't know how long to set the timeout, because if you set it to an hour, large content will always time out (because it takes long to pin) and small unavailable content will block your queue for an hour before it finally times out.

Imagine a torrent client that you could add torrents to but had to wait for one before downloading the next, and it never told you if it's *actually downloading* or not. You basically just take a guess on whether it's actually downloading and hope you aren't wrong.

I currently have a queue of 4000 objects that need pinning but they're all stuck waiting for a few unavailable objects.

This is unacceptable, I don't know how IPFS hopes to become popular with UX this bad.

That's a not an excuse for using . There are a lot of open source chats with equal or better accessibility:

Also free and open source software is about basic rights and not "purity" as you put it.

Also proprietary software is an accessibility barrier for privacy and security conscious users.

Finally, a name for that sickening media fascination with documenting poor people's struggles to cope when the system fails them without questioning why & how the system has failed them: perseverance porn.

Every relationship changes you in some way. How could it *not*? You expose yourself to another person almost completely. Your most intimate feelings, desires, dislikes, etc. all shared with another person. That takes a profound level of trust not found with most friendships.

Given that, why consider a relationship unsuccessful just because you broke up, if you learned something about yourself from it?

Doesn't mean the breakup is any easier, but once the dust settles, one can make it positive.

My sympathy for taxis (and uber and co) is *not* increasing at all.

The whole concept of taxi _here_ is mostly an unscalable elitist shit justified only by a ridiculously tiny percent of users who have a real need.

Good morning. Please remember that weaponizing parts of your identity (that white supremacist capitalist patriarchy attempts to destroy/capitalize on) in order to silence or control another 'minority' is talking about something is not the way forward.

If I'm talking about race, don't bring up class to negate my points. Also, these things are always linked together as well and there's time and a place for nuanced discourse.

ok? ok.
