Due to some reasons, I've been eating a lot of vegan food recently, and I have some observations. First, you can eat really well as a vegan. Second, the only problems with being vegan are social, not technical. (People think it's a bit odd, and animal products are everywhere.) Third, I have an increasingly uncomfortable feeling that they're probably right: that we cause harm unnecessarily by using animals. (I'm not a vegan though. But it's no longer unthinkable.)

After only a few months off, software development​ methodology discussions now feel as abstract and unimportant to me as Nestorianism.

@plexus Is 像 correct? I'd have expected 象, but I'm going by the Japanese meanings of the characters, which might be different.

It might interest some of my friends to know that Lidl UK are selling bicycle maintenance stands for £25 at the moment.

Just been described as "an inspiration" at napping. I'll claim that accolade with pride.

Buying an always-on hot water dispenser is easily the second-best thing I've done in the past few weeks. mastodon.social/media/mb8Hy3EU

@paulc @Thayer @jabley Definitely just squatting, except for meta-chats about not using it.
