I program for over 20 years. I just closed some tabs from yesterday:

"how to create directory in python"
"concat lists python"
"load 2 models tensorflow"
"how set pythonpath"

and some others.

And yes. I have a masters degree in informatics.

You don't need to learn things that you rarely need & are just 1 duckduckgo away by heart. Knowing that they exist and what to search for is sufficient.

Important are the thing you cannot search. Concentrate on those.

Ich überlege gerade ob ich mein Fairphone 2 gegen ein Fairphone 3 ersetze.Das geht mir eigentlich gegen den Strich, wegen der Nachhaltigkeit und so, selbst wenn mir die Firma noch 40 € für mein FP2 gibt. Besser lang gelebt als fair recycelt sag ich mir.

Aber wenn ich jemanden finde der mein FP2 mit 32GB, der neueren Kamera und ggoglefrei eingerichtetem Lineage OS für diese 40€ möchte, dann würde ichs machen.

It is not exactly new story and I am not sure if this made the rounds in fediverse but a few days ago #archiveofourown won the hugo award on best related work. We have a huge #FLOSS community here but we don't talk nearly enough about this project.

#ao3 is an unique opensourced project that is not male dominated and also not started by people who were fulltime engineers but fans who decided enough is enough and we need to own our servers.

Congrats to Ao3!

"M" is the letter tech people attach to things that are shittier than a different thing with the same name.

For example, NVIDIA graphics cards with "M" after their serial number are weaker cards meant for laptops.

Google Chrome has an "M" version for Windows.

Microsoft has Windows 10 "N" because they needed to go an additional letter into the alphabet to describe just how shitty it was.

Saw this on /r/traa

Literally was thinking about this the other day, listening to science podcasts. People love to talk about how there are two sexes so there are two genders and that's just fact. But the world is SO fucking weird, and the number of species that are hermaphroditic or something else entirely is very significant

"I brought you a princess!" the dragon repeated excitedly.

"Pevra, did you KIDNAP her?"

"No! I found her in the bushes."

"And did she WANT to come here?"

"She said 'anywhere would be better than the hell of matrimony' so yes, I guess?"

I leaned on my staff and hobbled out to meet her.

She sat regally, cheeks plump from plentiful meals and glossy hair slightly disheveled. I guessed she was a little older than me.

It's actually only "Unix" if it's made in The Open Group region of France. Otherwise, it's just a sparkling POSIX-compatible operating system.
