After 9 years working on CF and Foundation, and having finally killed -[NSUserDefaults synchronize], it’s time for me to move on.
Starting very soon I’ll be working on the Swift standard library, with a focus on OS integration and performance.
Also this means that Foundation will soon have an open spot! If you’d like to work on fascinating stuff with wonderful people like @millenomi, please don't hesitate to reach out 😃 Sadly few remote opportunities, what with hardware prototypes and such.
Watched Blade Runner 2049 for the... fifth? time.
It still bothers me this movie wasn't more commercially successful. Such a beautifully shot movie.
I really didn't think they should do a sequel. I thought there's no way they could do it well.
I was wrong. After all these watchings, I only have two relatively minor complaints about the film.

hey. i'm a trans/nb, disabled, US navy veteran with years of experience in system administration, as well as a good chunk of github effort influencing mastodon's early growth period in user experience and featureset.
ive got next month's rent, and virtually nothing more to live off of afterward.
i'm based in Seattle, and am versatile in my abilities, not just centralized to system administration. I got a resume here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ctL51i0GjEfRHpewzj4ayJmiWnfq8QyVk8XDYjdM4n0/edit#heading=h.sb9muqbgut2t as well as methods of communication here, in wire, texting, email, and more.
i'm scared. i've not been able to find a job in the civilian world, despite my best efforts.
maybe point me in the right direction, or point me out to somebody you know?
please boost, or maybe hire me on a cheap commission to appraise your tech, for any reason, for a negotiable price. I just want to work for pay, enough to survive.
anything helps, including boosts.
dm if you just wanna send me money, instead, if that's easier for you.

I literally watched almost no TV from around 1993 until a few years ago. No cable, just a TV with VCR or DVD for movies.
It's really amazing to me what has happened to TV during my lifetime. TV used to be really kind of empty calories; substance-less nonsense and overdone melodrama. Not worth the time.
Don't get me wrong, there's still a lot of crap, but there's some really amazing visual storytelling happening now, and the longer timelines allow much deeper stories than feature-length movies.

The House/Senate compromise made a lot of sense in the 1780s, but it has become incredibly inequitable. The only way to change that is to get a constitutional amendment ratified by 38 states, but there are 40 states with less than 10M people. who will never vote to give themselves less political power

I knew it was likely to go this way, but it's still a gut punch to see Manchin and Collins give their support to such an unqualified candidate.

So, to answer my own earlier question, yes, you can turn off the FEMA Presidential message, but you have to turn off all governmental messages.
