A reminder that this year is not an anomaly and things won't suddenly get better next year. There is no going back to "normal" and things are only going to get worse until we fix the ongoing climate crisis.

@Shufei They have both blind trust and understanding of tech. Whenever I read anything about this I can't help but laugh.. nanomachines, AI, von neuman satellite, are you fucking kidding me, we can't even manufacture a bluetooth speaker that works consistently.

Their flying cars are gonna run on electron, their prosthetic limbs will randomly reboot, their embrace in technological know-how would be inspiring, if it wasn't so deluded.

idk, falsehoods programmers believe 

- if you open a TCP connection, it will not time out
- if you have been talking to a TCP server for a while, and you send an additional message it will not time out
- if you open a TCP connection, it will have a latency of under 2 seconds and a speed of at least 1 mbit
- (JavaScript edition: if you open an http connection it will be 1ms and gigabit)
- if you open a connection, send a message, and it times out, the server did not receive or process that message
- if you stat a file and it succeeds, then open the file, it will succeed
- if you open a file, close it, then open the same file it will have the same contents
- if you open a system file writable only by root, close it, then open the same file it will have the same contents
- all reads and writes that are otherwise sound will always succeed
- the user's hard drive is never 100% full
- a sequence of actions in your program will always be executed to completion

idk i could go on probably

A friend of mine who teaches elementary school, taught her class, “don’t yuck my yum”

It was like a class mantra, all the kids knew and understood the phrase. So, if a kid brought a bean burrito for lunch, and another kid said “gross! I hate beans” burrito-kid could just say “don’t yuck my yum”

It became the perfect phrase when one student liked something another student hated it. Quickly, it moved from the tangible (food, smells, textures) to the intangible (music, religion, quality)

By the end of the year “don’t tuck my yum” was woven into the culture of the class. They actually used the phrase LESS by then, because yuckers would check themselves before tearing anyone down.

And that class of second graders moved to third, secure in the knowledge that it’s ok to love the things you love, even if other people don’t.

Searching for 1-bit music lead me to Tim Follin, which lead me to this banger on the NES (Silver Surfer Title Screen):

@lanodan @sir @naruciakk @lord

Maybe the authors just appreciate that changes in protocol should be given some time?

I despise the move-fast-and-break-things mentality. Changing quickly isn't a sign of being alive, it's a sign of bad project management.

La tesis podria ser una obra de una AI que escribe la tesis, pero finalmente entrega hojas en blanco.
