Just ordered tickets, accommodation and travel for 2019. Very excited!

Black Mirror S5E3 commentary (minor spoilers) Show more

I'm slightly annoyed at the idea of men being more inclined paying to the bill on a hetero date - but I'm also totally unwilling to not offer to pay the bill.

Really it's just about wanting to treat people I like.
But I can't help but wonder if I'm perpetuating something unhealthy.

No, this isn't Photoshop. This is the Arctic right now.

Sea ice levels over great swathes of the Arctic ocean are at historic lows (in the 40-year-long satellite record) for this time of year.

Spotify just reminded me how nice Run the Jewels 2 is, and how much it has been underlistened to by me.
Here's me spreading the friendly message into the fediverse. Have some raps.

(previous toot heavily hashtagged in the hopes that all the lispy people will come along and tell me what I'm doing wrong)

So I've spent the past couple of hours messing around with ( ).
And while is super interesting, they *really* bother me for readability.

Never mind the insane amount of parentheses - that's fine, we can do indents and figure it.

The thing that really bothers me is that the operation that happens first, is the operation that is read last. That is so horribly unintuitive.

Readable FP really needs to have a forward pipe operator like F# has. I hear Haskell has a nice one.

So I've so far spen the entire day installing Lua dependencies...
I haven't written single a line of lua my entire life - and I'm less inclined to now than ever.

I just went back on Tinder - it's a wonderful way to avoid learning to deal with my social anxiety.

But holy shit is that app a horrible mess. Using it these past 15 minutes, it's hung at least ten times, and completely crashed well over a handful of times.

It's actually impressive how something can be so popular, and still so buggy...

I think code autoformatters seem like a really good idea in principle, but I'm definitely way too much of a style control-freak to use any of them.

Hearing people say phrases like "...like how Microsoft changed computing" or "how Apple changed cellphones" is some of the best evidence that history is still written by the winners.

Going into the first episode of Black Mirror I quickly felt like my expecations of disappointment were met.
Now coming out of the episode, I feel like there's a couple of really interesting points in it.

My Black Mirror S05E01 Review:
5/5 - Pretty good.

The web shouldn't be :chrome:​ based. The web shouldn't be dictated by :google:

The world wide web belongs to its users, not some corporate masters. :ablobsigh:

New US visa online application now requires you to enter all your social media presences when you apply for a visa:

Is preferring the ethics of over a valid reason to pick up instead of as a systems programming language?

Should this even be a factor when choosing technologies to learn?

So proud to be voting Radikale Venstre ("Danish Social Liberal Party") these days around the EU elections.
Magrethe Vestager has been throwing punches like nobody before, these past couple of years.
Here's hoping Karen Melchior can follow in her footsteps.

Remember to vote, everybody!
