nazis want their feelings to matter? stop being genocidal and oppressive assholes then. 🤷🏽

@terrajobst@twitter.com Ballmer’s Microsoft lost several years due to hubris (as did Palm, Nokia and Blackberry!), but I’m not sure it would’ve been possible to compete against Android+iOS either way. Windows Phone 7 shipped late but had compelling concepts. Just not enough of a market raison d’être.

git is intuitive. like for example the main branch is called "master", like you know, when you have a tree growing out of the ground, and you have the one big branch in the ground, in the middle of the tree, that the other branches come from? the "master" of the tree? like that

Reactions to E Jean Carroll's story remind me of when I was on jury duty and the whole pool was asked "do you have personal experience or know of anyone who has been sexually assaulted" and all the women raised their hands and the men just stared at us.

@marcoarment@twitter.com iOS 13 continues to impress with its new external storage feature. I even tried hooking up an Iomega Zip Drive to an iPhone. I made a little video detailing the procedure. Will it work? Enjoy! youtu.be/YLYrK8-TOu4

@kensanata @tsturm @globalc The one that so delights me I refuse to look closely into whether it actually happened was "can't send e-mail more than 500 miles".

@tsturm @globalc A famous one from my line of work was this: “when it rains on Wednesday’s, the CRM is slow.” True story! The explanation was that the database was rebooted every night and if it rained on Wednesday, somebody had to drive their kid to kindergarten and thus wasn’t the first person in the office, didn’t start the report they usually did, thus not storing the good execution plan in memory for the rest of the day. From then on, the CRM was slow. 🙈

“Damn, I forgot to charge my watch” is a phrase I’m still not totally comfortable with.

I’ve spent the last month touring cities in Europe. There is something calming about the cafes, the architecture, the cozy streets.

During a particularly nice walk, my friend summarized the difference:

“European cities are built for people. American cities are built for cars.”

@gte@twitter.com This specific flavor arose from noticing that cultural void. There’s no future anyone’s working toward. It feels like everyone’s just like “ah well, I dunno, maybe… medicine will get slightly better? It would be nice if that happened.”
