i've had to learn so many things since i joined the fediverse:
- real humans use APL
- what awoo is
- basics of shitposting
- when pineapples are appropriate (almost always)
- how to not care about catching up on the timeline
- words are at their most awesome when they've lost all meaning, like 'oats'
it hasn't been awful, but after 6 years on debian i'm just ready to try something new
(i'm trying out arch because i'm tired of fighting debian to let me install up-to-date software)
i installed arch and i3 on a very old laptop and not only does it work, but i instantly grew a big beard and started wearing socks with sandals

just spent $2,700 on a damned laptop, this thing had better come with hard drugs
i just called HFS+ a "dumpster fire designed by monkeys on LSD" in a public channel in work's slack, so that's how my day's going
Tag yourself. (I’m E major.)
domain driven design review so far:
it's been like 50 pages of "you should read this book, it's a good book, i know it's a good book, here's why it's a good book, you should read this book, definitely read this book" jesus fucking christ i'm already reading the goddamn book
I hate computers and they are fucking terrible
i'm really gonna try to keep an open mind, but UML grosses me out a little
so we're reading DDD at work (meaning, the .NET developers are reading it and i wanted a free book so i'm also reading it) and i'm already REALLY unsure about this. it might not be for people who don't believe in OOP.
(this is a good thing)
just had the most boring big feature release ever
what does it mean if even REISUB doesn't work
