@deenoonandraws@twitter.com As a form of protest, people should leave red "bloody" handprints everywhere anyone in the GOP lives, eats, works. Bloody kids handprints on their driveways, side walks, office windows, cars, food deliveries, no matter where they go. Some psychological warfare is called for.

As you become an adult, you realize that things around you weren't just always there; people made them happen. But only recently have I started to internalize how much tenacity *everything* requires. That hotel, that park, that railway. The world is a museum of passion projects.

All of this *gestures* and still no revolution in the streets. Things have to get bad in specific ways, huh.

Remember the "hockey stick" scandal where climate scientists were smeared for normal statistical correction? Well anyway nothing vindicating to see here.

Almost 50% increase in just over three decades...whatever our targets are they are inadequate (but at 43% lower vs 2005 by 2030 is better than our weak 26-28% under Abbott onwards...) twitter.com/ZLabe/status/15288

If you are in product development or sales engineering, heed my warning as it is WISDOM borne of pain and hours spent squinting at error messages and specs:

A POC or demo IS NOT A PRODUCT.

It is not production code--and so much the better that it isn't, for many reasons.

But I was thinking like an engineer: trying to build something for posterity, reuse, future needs.

What I needed to build? Something to illustrate what is possible. It WAS fun but... I would like those two days back pls 😂

Finally, as I neared the end getting of my purpose-built thing working and polished, I realized two things:

1. I had misunderstood a fundamental convention concept that would have actually made ALL my attempts work fine, and

2. When in ran through it end-to-end I didn't even NEED the cool functionality I had designed. Three lines of js would also have totally done the trick 😂😭

(I threw those in there too whynot 🤷😂)

🪡 I just spent two days writing a module to do a thing for a demo, and the reason it took two days was that I was trying to tie it into an ecosystem of popular modules.

First I had to learn it's classes and so on, and when I did I realized that wasn't gonna work the way I needed...

So I retooled on another approach: still had issues with something that should have been simple. So finally I said fuckit and just wrote my own purposemade thing, extensibility bedamned.

Developing Mastodon, I strive to use terminology that is familiar to as many people as possible so as to not put up unnecessary barriers in understanding. For this reason I am happy that we went away from calling posts "toots". It has always been a point of friction for people. Not that I dislike branding, quite the opposite, but in my experience receiving feedback over half a decade, it had a negative effect on the platform for little benefit.

A lot of people were calling this & a lot of people are genuinely fucked now: regulators completely abandoned their resps to agressively give a shit. But wow so much hilarious study docs re the psychology of bubbles. It's an ill wind. twitter.com/tiktokinvestors/st

Who just got sprayed in the face at 60psi when testing the garden irrigation and an emitter blew off?

THAT'S RIGHT, IT WAS ME.

actually kind of refreshing, now that I am used to the idea of not being dry for the rest of the day...
