I migrated to @juliastic, follow me there if you want to continue receiving your regular dose of my redundant rants.
I usually don’t link to tweets on here but this one is too funny not to share: https://twitter.com/gracepetrie/status/1070387698941288448

Having seen newcomers to the profession being frustrated to the degree of giving up on their dreams, just because they didn't fart around on a C64 when they were children, I realized these stories while cute do active harm. Don't make them such integral parts of your introductions and origin stories. Try weaving in advice that is reproducible to grown ups instead.

I love huge sandbox games like the Just Cause series.

Today's evening film "Disobedience" is a peculiar one: https://itunes.apple.com/at/movie/disobedience/id1420549146?l=en
Don't get me wrong: I'm usually everything but hesitant to watch a lesbian themed movie, yet this one comes across as particularly weird.
Still giving it a chance though - mainly because of the two main actresses (not that anyone's asking).
computer science student, software engineer, rather queer.
my toots consist of rants, mostly.
