Making is all about screwing up.

It's about having the confidence to screw up in increasingly creative ways.

It's the art of getting it wrong with such flair and panache that you can't help but be entertained by your own ineptitude.

It's the ability to foil so many of your own plans that you are left with no option but to stumble into a solution that works.

A solution, that when found, leaves you awestruck by what you have accomplished.

And it is in pursuit of that awe that the Maker makes.

Imposter syndrome is the belief that because you are capable of the virtue of doubt, you're somehow less prepared for the challenges of life than the many hubristic arseholes who lack the sense to recognize any consequences of their own poor judgment.

The world doesn't need more overconfidence. It needs more folk comfortable with doubt, of themselves, of their practices and institutions. Questioning our ability or preparedness to do a thing is not the same as being unable to do that thing.

TFW you spend all day trying to install something, only for it to become more broken the more you try to get it working.

@beadsland OOO, very appropriate.

I released smoke today.

But I learned I can use a LiPo battery + charging circuit or DC power at 6A (fried the original board in this test) or a Micro-USB to power this project...

Two hours wasted on DBs I wasn't trying to work with because I was trying to troubleshoot gthumb hanging.

After two hours wasted on DBs. Finally got back to gthumb troubleshoot. Ended up replacing with eog.

Two hours wasted. Because fucking databases.

Got sick and tired of mysqld hosing apt every time I ran an upgrade.

So decided to migrate to mariadb instead.

Two hours later, still fucking around trying to get my databases to work again.

I didn't even sit down to work on databases. What I sat down to work on I haven't been able to work on for two hours. Because fucking databases.

TFW you click save and your application becomes nonresponsive.

we need #carepunk more than ever at this point

being good to people needs to become seen for what it is: rebellion against a system built to reward assholes as much as possible

With data-gathering on Facebook and other social media in mind:

Memes:

* Your porn star name is the name of your first pet and the street you grew up on.
* Can you remember your first-grade teacher's name??
* Tag yourself with the first concert you ever went to!

Website security questions:
* What was the name of your first pet?
* What street did you grow up on?
* What was your first-grade teacher's name?
* What was the first concert you went to?

Correction. bootstrap.sh is for installing cabal, which I am guessing is the haskell version of a package manager.

Although distributed with haskell, it is also, for whatever reason, distributed as it's own install source independent of haskell proper. In this case, it was required as a dependency of another application.

Installing haskell worked like a charm. Installing cabal as a standalone package per it's own instructions, repeated boostrap fails.

Because, well, you know. Bootstrap.

Haskell is the first ever programming language I've ever encountered that repeatedly fails to install due to dependencies.

Interestingly, the install process begins with a script called "bootstrap.sh".

Bootstrap.sh fails due to missing dependencies.

Something tells me someone forgot what bootstrap means.

The nice thing about working freelance is if both you and the client didn't sleep the night before, you simple reschedule for another time.

#NYC mastodonians, please consider backing the Gothamist kickstarter. The rewards are lame, but Gothamist was a great resource, and deserves funding.

I made it myself.

The most gratifying words one can be privileged to say.

so if an entire instance is disappearing, does that mean all the toots will be gone and the links will be broken?

is there a way to archive the publicly available info? can the instance users copy their info in a way that would make it easy to make a mirror website?

I can't imagine how the Door Monster team have any time to play the video games they satirize on such a consistent schedule.
