Hey everyone! My band, Beast Jesus, just released a compilation of everything we've done so far-- remastered, and free to stream/download. Check us out here:
People who are vocally upset at GitHub changing the default branch name from "master" can fuck all the way off.
It is crucial to understand and make people understand that technology is a social relationship and not just an application of physical-mathematical principles.
It is contradictory when some tech-bros argue that terms in a programming language should not be changed because the language is not ‘human‘. It is because of its artificiality that changes won’t throw the whole thing over the top and everything will still function.
The request to change terms because of their connotations alone is too much ‘human’ huh?

It's just one of those days, I guess. It doesn't really seem like I have much agency, and I find it hard to shake off the idea of being a burden or difficult to love.
No one deserves the trouble of having to deal with me, and the most I could do is to like, try my best to make things as uneventful as possible. But like, that's bare minimum human stuff, you know.

Please pass this on.
