"Close tabs to the right" is the best new feature added to modern browsers in the last decade.

It almost cured my propensity to constantly have 100+ tabs opened.

RT @GeePawHill
One part of the "Agile" movement's failure-by-marketeer that bugs me is that TDD, the most remarkable advance in technique that's happened in my 40+ year career, is still so widely misunderstood, misused, and misrepresented.

uhh, you claim to be starving and dying from the plague, yet you have a chimeny. i bet a sumerian high priest would have given anything to live in a house with a chimney

organizing a nationwide strike is hard

however, i have constructed an alternative plan which is much easier:

meetings are often postponed due to 1 member being unavailable.

the average paid vacation accumulation rate is 2weeks/yr

there are 52 weeks in a year

if you and 25 coworkers coordinated to take 1 rotating day of vacation every day, the meeting gets perpetually delayed and your workload is minimized. You're welcome.

This Sam Seder/Steven Crowder drama is delicious.

Seder is just completely gloves-off being "slanted media", because he doesn't take Crowser seriously, and fuck that guy.

... He's brought David Cross (a comedian) on as a body language expert (a total bullshit type of commentary), to break down "BDSM Body Language of Steven Crowder." I can't even, amazing.

how do I hook into the gnome notification system and run a script upon delivery?

It is not fair to shut down criticism in that way.

Wasting taxpayers money on stupid project like the tunnels, destroying nature-preserves and calling people slurs such as "pedo guy" just because he did not like the "solution" does really need to be criticized.

Elon deserves to be criticized.
