As usual we have a word in German that perfectly describes what we witnessed tonight.

It's called "Fremdschämen" and it's the vicarious embarrassment you get when you see something so deeply mortifying, you feel embarrassed just watching it.

TFW your kid comes to you for help with a homework assignment that's "make a web page using CSS" and tells you the teacher gave them W3Cschools as the reference.

Y'all, the outrage. Like, flames. Flames on the side of my face.

Hey, Fediverse buddies -- before I start trawling NPM, does anybody have a recommended Node package for posting to Mastodon?

Thanks in advance!

Challenge:
I'd like to ask you people to boost this post to see how long it'd take for it to reach someone else from my town (Westervoort, The Netherlands).
Of course, that implies that I'm not the only one here that uses Mastodon, but hey, part of the challenge :)

Starting on the 18th of August 2020 :)

GO!

How techbros sound rn 

I don't really feel strongly one way or the other about renaming "master" branches to "main" but I'm here to comment about how I'm doing so begrudgingly and making the process as unnecessarily exhausting for all involved as possible just the same

I just kinda like it when things that help other people are a little bit painful for them, and I want to let you know that I will do as little to help as I can possibly get away with

You know?

Oh dear. Yup. Second graph actual data from California.

Rational expectations is utterly dead to me.

I have an appointment to renew my drivers license! Yay!

The South Salem DMV (which is the only one open in the area) is currently scheduling appointments for the last week in JULY! Boo!

I can now stop worrying about needing to visit a DMV for like seven weeks! Yay!
