Man braucht in einer Mannschaftssportart wie Software-Entwicklung Tests, um eine belastbare Aussage über (idealerweise korrektes) Verhalten treffen zu können. Das ist essenziell. Wenn man nicht weiß, wie sich Code verhalten sollte, weiß man nicht, was man kaputt macht.

Think about how many times in a day on the Web you click “I agree” when you really don’t agree just so you can get on with your day and use an everyday thing.

This is not how consent is supposed to work.

found this amazing little story at the bottom of the man page for bwbasic, the BASIC interpreter installed on tilde.town.

Thanks, Mrs. Verda Spell!

RT @asausagehastwo@twitter.com: My son has parked his bike by this lamppost just about every day for the last year. This morning, this sticker had appeared. Absolutely made our day. People can be so brilliant. Thank you, whoever did it 😊

So cool Mastodon enabled rel=me links in the metadata so I can verify my account. No longer do I have to wonder am I famous enough? What about the time my account was spoofed? Why does she get a blue check and not him? I am in control.

- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m

90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them

Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m

This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created

I’m all for speaking truth to power but I don’t understand screaming your version of someone else’s reality into their face while they categorically deny it & profess support for your cause until you break them down. What I’ve seen here is nothing short of bullying. And no, it doesn’t make it right because he was on a TV show once.

Don’t @ me. Or do; I know where the block button is & mine’s wired to mew like a kitten… it’s just the cutest 🐈

Mal X-COM: Terror from the Deep mit Steam Play versuchen.

Ich find ja auch mit 37 das Konzept von Bibliotheken und Büchereien immer noch unglaublich: Für einen oft mickrigen Mitgliedsbeitrag kann ich ausleihen, was ich will, so oft ich will und im Prinzip so lang ich will.
Und: Das „Geschäftsmodell“ beruht auf der Übereinkunft, dass man vor Ort zum Lesen seine Ruhe hat und nicht mit anderen small talken muss.
Ziemlich bekloppt geil.

@benni Genau meine Story. Aber ich musste es nachschlagen, weil ich mich in Sachen identi.ca an exakt nichts erinnern konnte. 2008… Oh Mann. Wird ehrlich gesagt mal Zeit, mit dem ganzen Quatsch aufzuhören.
