4. They’re shocked (because, see 3)
5. It’s too late, they’re too big and they’ve exited
6. Goto 1

Today I’ve partially (~80%) updated an app from Vue 2 to Vue 3.

Painful, because:

"But... Why don't you ask her?"
"She is scary!"
"She's not!"
"We chose wisely."

Developers of login systems, if you're not going to actually implement and test "Remember Me" functionality to make sure it works, please just leave it out.

#RIPTwitter was trending for a little while last night, because Jack Dorsey thinks people will pay to read other people’s Tweets. Unfortunately, I know he's right and I know people will pay just to read someone's poorly thought out thread.

Your biz says native apps are the way they wanna go,
Your ask them "web app plz?" but they still say no.
They say that for engagement only native apps work,
Forgetting mobile web and all the modern web perks.
