software developers learn the word "they" challenge

Still working my way up to playing against real people, and faster cars than a Mazda MX5.

Picked up iRacing this weekend. Managed to do a full race session against some AI, qualify 15th of 28, and claim the third spot on the podium after 8 laps. I was a full second away from the fastest lap at all times, but consistency paid off!

@renatolond I need to do something to clean the data for GPM, but your changes are live. Thanks for the contribution!

This game looks like a graphic novel or a French animated feature, it's beautiful

One of my favorite things: The NASA Tire Assault Vehicle (TAV), used during the testing of Space Shuttle Tires, should they become dangerously damaged or worn and require deflation.

It's an RC Tank with a drill bolted to the top.

Took the day off to spend playing Cyberpunk, absolutely worth it.

15 minutes until Cyberpunk unlocks, and I'm going to sleep instead so I can enjoy it properly when I wake up. I'm a heck of a grown up.

It's crazy that Grosjean walked away from this. Apparently just minor burns to his legs.

I work at a large ecommerce company, so I'm super happy that Black Friday itself is over and records were broken while the site was not. Just Cyber Monday to go and I get to chill out for the rest of December.

Trying to get my warranty covered Pixel 4 replaced since September. About to contact them for the 6th time...

Today I have to pack/dump the half of my possessions still left in my old place. Sort of dreading it, sort of looking forward to it. In the week since I moved at least, I haven't needed any of it.

I have to pack all my things for a house move over the next two weeks. I have so much procrastination energy.

Rewrote most of teleport and made the UI more modern and rounded ;)

It still needs some error handling before the release.

Moonraker, he's the man
The man who can rake the moon
With his long spoon
A dark cheesemaker

Beckons you
With crackers of treachery
To evil Brie

Curdled lies he will pour on your plate
But his spies can't disguise what you ate
For an astro-chef knows her cheese grater
And she won't take a bite from Copernicus crater
Served by Moonraker

Beware of his rind of sin
It's got holes in

He loves only cheese
Only cheese
He loves cheese
He loves only cheese
And rockets

Quote of the year from this dude who is sick of people’s shit

Most people are under the impression the ADHD is somehow a 'deficit of attention,' but it could equally and quite appropriately be framed as having higher than normal neurological requirements for stimuli.

When ADHD kids especially seem to bounce from subject to subject "mindlessly," what they're doing is not just randomly slopping through whatever without paying attention. They're running through lists of potentially stimulating subjects until they find one that suits their high requirements.

Public Enemy has just released a new version of their 1989 anthem "Fight the Power" (featured in the Spike Lee breakout "Do the Right Thing") along with a video featuring Nas, Rapsody, Black Thought, Jahi, YG and QuestLove.

The new version is outstanding and the accompanying video even better, integrating recent footage from the Black Lives Matter uprising, with the guest MCs explicitly tracing the current struggle to Public Enemy's decades of activism.
