And today's award for the best song goes to...
Yorushika's "Say It."
Today's twitter migration to mastodon is just another reminder that:
a) Many people came here just to get away from twitter and the people there. All twitter coming here is certainly not something everyone is eager for
b) There is still a lot to be done regarding moderation
c) Many people are not willing to respect simple codes of conduct and they think they can say whatever they want because "it's a joke"
d) Humans suck

Moore's law stopped in 2005. Since then, a new computer has not been faster than an old computer with the same cost.
Those new capabilities that *can* be used to speed up software (such as multiple cores) require modifications to that software: in other words, new computers can only run software faster when application developers put effort into optimization.
Dear everyone: If you are going to record a video or take a photo of someone, ask for their permission.
If you took a picture or a video and you captured someone because they were passing by or just accidentally, please blur their faces if you are going to upload it somewhere.
Respect everyone's privacy. Respect the fact that some people would not like their pictures to be uploaded, even if they are in it by accident.
Respect is the key here, have some.

@HyuchiaDiego talks about using visual novel (#VN) authoring platforms for presentations—very retro-futuristic, very Alan Kay, who does his brilliant presentations in Smalltalk (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eg_ToU7m1MI).
2018, they finally got Linus.
To be fair, Linus is just the first of many people who have "promoted" the toxicity present on the #Linux community. From #kernel mantainers to distro and app developers, the toxicity list is a long one.
This may be a first step but will it really weed out all these people? highly doubt it.

We are living the future.
I've just released Mastodon De-Mob, an anti-harassment tool that lets users to block everyone who favorited or boosted a toot calling for harassment. https://mastodon-de-mob.codesections.com/
Please feel free to test it out with the example URL I provided; that will only block a test account I set up for this purpose. Hopefully, you won't ever need it for real.
It also reports the harassing toot, which I hope will prevent the tool's abuse for non-harassing toots.
I try to support #Anime as much as I can but they really make it hard to do so.
I pay for #Crunchyroll, #Hidive, #Netflix and #PrimeVideo but a lot of the content on those is not available due to my region (Mexico) and even if it was, a lot of animes are not available on any of them.
There is no many physical anime you can buy here so you have to import them at an insane price and in my experience, with worst subs than many fansubs.
I'd love to support it but they just don't help.
This. So very much this.
‘The “Developer Experience” Bait-and-Switch’
This week’s must read. The situation really is as bad as he says. https://infrequently.org/2018/0…
Teacher writing some code while projecting it:
`public static void main (String args)`
Student, 8th semester, just year and a half before graduating in Computer Science:
Oh, you got an error there, it should be `String args`
Teacher: "Oh, it doesn't matter, Java allows array type definitions to have the brackets on either side"
I mean... these guys are about to become "profesionals", school literally drilled Java into their heads for 4 years and this is what they "know"?
If by the end of my life I was able to help at least someone, then I'll have succeeded.
