Happy New Lunar Year!
It's the #YearOfTheDog :D
The year of the doggo is upon us, we must all bork, warf, and praise all doggos :3
Actually turned out nice for once. My phone usually takes crap pictures. https://mastodon.social/media/mncF-jYOBki3ICdPsaw
Hey so I tried to learn #blender a while ago and just couldn't make my mind work that way. Ready to give it another shot, does any one have intro how-tos or videos or resources they like?
The reasons are arbitrary and are post-hoc rationalizations about the latest technology and when an example is brought up about the IRS still running on assembly and cobol the young technologist creates the convoluted kernel to separate the IRS from their special use case. There is no good reason to upgrade a python 2.7 codebase to a 3.x codebase. If you think there is then you are probably fooling yourself because you are young and foolish.
With a convoluted enough kernel construction one can draw a boundary between any set of points. I think technologists consistently misunderstand the utility of the latest and greatest. Young technologists are especially prone to overvaluing the latest thing even though in the grand scheme of things there is almost no or even negative value in changing whatever currently works but they convince themselves there is real value in remaking the thing that works.

So I decided to have a look at Twitter ('cause I decide to do that from time to time), and lo and behold, my *Notifications* have likes that people I follow gave to *other* people. Because throwing other people's likes in the timeline was not enough, they had to throw them *in the Notifications*.
Just watching this left me exhausted
Whenever I sit down and just think about stuff I feel irrationally guilty that I'm not actively working. THIS IS BAD!!!
It's very important to remember that in creative work of any kind (this includes things like programming tbh), the more time you spend getting your thoughts in order, the smoother your execution will be. Even just taking a walk and letting your brain air out a little can be invaluable. 100% efficiency does not mean 100% active work.
So the federal government, which recently killed net neutrality, apparently wants to nationalize the buildout of the 5G system. Whoa. That's gonna leave a mark. https://t.co/DOtt9ALX6R
