Fetching some favourites before it's too late. Should've kept the DVDs.

Star Trek transporters are pretty cool. But you know that they split a person into their atoms just to create an exact copy somewhere else? That's right, all the crewmembers are basically dead.

I just published npm.im/libnpmpublish.

This is a *programmatic API* for npm publish and unpublish. You'll still have to pack your own tarball, but it'll take care of the rest. There's even nice docs!

I'm not happy with how the Wil Wheaton situation was resolved. An admin was overwhelmed with frivolous reports about him and felt forced to exile him. I've said before that I think it sets a dangerous precedent on how a large group of people can mobilize to drive anyone off the fediverse. Mob rule is universally dangerous: Mods and admins must examine evidence and decide based on wrongdoing and danger, and not on how many times someone was reported.

One of the symptoms of depression is not being able to tell the big problems from the little problems.


Wanna do some good? Form a brigade and go after Alex Jones or Mike Cernovich or Richard Spencer. Punch a nazi. They're not hard to find.

Wilw didn't deserve this. No matter how you feel about him, this was unfair. And we should learn from it because it will happen again.

We have to be able to tell the big problems from the little problems.

PEBKAC: problem exists between kubernetes and container

I almost forgot how nice a chronologically sorted timeline is.

(A Mastodon observation, not a Doctor Who quote)

"The circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant. It is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are.”

That's from a frickin' Pokémon, people
