Dear fellow white dudes, I propose an idea: the next time you think to yourself “I should start a podcast about X” — totally follow through, but also subscribe to or pay for content from not a white dude.

On twitter I mute anything matching the pattern `RT @` this effectively mutes all retweets -- is there an equivalent setting or hack for mastodon?

TFW arresting officers will not slow anything down.
The president was impeached.
Zimmerman has been charged multiple times.

Stop assuming the system will be able to assess itself as the party in fault. (

I am a functional programming junky. I love and ... but seems cool


If I was gonna wade into the world of smalltalk where should I start? Does implementation matter, e.g. Squeak v Pharo?

@glyph isn’t that why your supposed to bury them in rice if they get wet? Rice and soy sauce pair so well! Like a laptop sushi?

@Are0h but I am *so* good at using a hammer! Isn't that good enough!?

What you do with those skills is what makes people pay attention.

"Dark Lego, show me the forbidden connection techniques":

a leaked PDF of a Lego internal corporate document describing "illegal" connections that must not be used in official kit-building instructions

@nolan re-not soaking, I've experimented with a bunch of different beans, and, for the most part, while the instapot can cook unsoaked beans, the results tend to be a lot easier to digest if you *do* soak 'em.

After taking a *long* hiatus from making link logs on my blog, I’m back with a new one! Much abridged, but back.

Pinafore v1.17.0 

The main feature of this release is that the focus ring (i.e. the glowing outline around buttons and links) should be less prominent for mouse users. If you prefer to use the keyboard to navigate, then nothing should change. This follows a new web standard called "focus-visible."

If you prefer the old behavior, you can enable "Always show focus ring" in the settings.

Loading threads when clicking on statuses should also be faster.


Forth is fun.

@tfb I can’t get over the fact that they don’t have protected package names — how can a package manger be useable when multiple packages can have the same name? Does that end up being a huge headache or is their some community culture that stops it from really being an issue?
