I saw someone claim words have objective meanings and felt every lexicographer sigh in unison.

How do you bridge recognizing the effect of human systems on human behavior and finding the correct place for personal responsibility? If there is one...

It’s disappointing to see top voted comment threads about G2A being “all game developers are greedy whiners and I don’t care that they’re being ripped off.”

Bad practices elsewhere in the industry have tainted the reputation of all developers. And that stinks.

thoughts on the FOSS community at large 

Me: "I can't get $thing to work. Is there something like $potentialfix?"

IRC channel: "Show us a working example and we'll help you."

Me: Oh, this is one of those channels… *leaves channel*

*techbro querying* "You have been very unprofessional, you are the problem."

Announcing the FIRST full-feature marketing suite for Mastodon. All it does is tell you to stop.

Toot is the only reasonable thing to call posts. That and snoots.

This seemed like the obvious choice. PHP is made for mixing data with HTML! Surely it's the perfect thing.

But as I thought more, I saw a path toward building a whole template system on this and realized I'd be happier using a pre-made one. And at that point, I might as well use a language with more and more mature tools for this.

I made this to see how plausible it is to lean on PHP's own processing and output buffering to create a static blog engine.
