good morning; we put Dave's cat bed on the book case and he loves it
good morning, Canada got a new food guide and it includes hydration, so make sure you're hydrated!
it also includes tips like "cook more often", mindful eating, and awareness of food advertising
I feel like that's a cool step forward. It'd be more cool of ol' JT would just reform food advertising.
oh, but for market forces!

@ashfurrow Solo Ingles es privilegio blanco.
@mdhughes I speak French as well, and I knew what the image says.
@bamfic my sister has started mocking me for it
@ashfurrow wait, is clippy hashtag problematic
@aeonofdiscord you heard it here first, folks, clip is CANCELLED
@ashfurrow wait, why is the paper-clip misogynistic?
@hirojin well, maybe "misogynistic" is too strong a word, but women told MS they didn't like Clippy, that it leered at them, and MS didn't listen: https://www.theverge.com/2015/6/25/8844365/microsoft-clippy-sexist-leering
@ashfurrow cacti rock 👍
@leeb I’m quickly falling in love with them 😍
@ashfurrow Prickly on the outside, soft on the inside, thrive on neglect. They're my kind of plants 😆
@ashfurrow running water is pretty great.
@ashfurrow Fun! Solid body electric?
@emartin that’s right – I basically only do acoustic lately because my epiphone les paul weighs a million pounds and hurts my neck/shoulder. I got an ibanez s621 instead :)
@ashfurrow Nice! My main one is an ibanez AS53 semi-hollow.
Morning! This is Shorts.
@Greyman what a cutie!
@ashfurrow sleepy boi
@eletious constantly yup :)
@ashfurrow What are you doing Dave...?
@ashfurrow wow, where does this image come from!?
@jasondclinton I don't know where any of my images come from, sorry. I did a reverse image search and it's apparently a meme?
@ashfurrow Depends on. The left one is open source – the right one proprietary.
@ashfurrow obviously the second one - otherwise it would need multiple pairs of trousers 😂
@ashfurrow I hate Monday mornings for exactly that same reason.
comment about "master"
ugh, we really need to get away from using master in this context :/
comment about "master"
@maloki Yes, but it's tricky. Obviously "master/slave" is not appropriate, but in this context, "master" is used like "master key" (not that anyone's feelings/response to the term are invalid). The drive to move away from "master" branches is probably going to face more pushback than "master/slave", despite being the right decision, long-term.
It would take someone like GitHub changing this for it to take hold. Fingers crossed.
comment about "master"
But, aside from personal feelings about the terminology, for me "master" is not the best name for the default branch because it is usually used as "current" (or "development", or, yes, "trunk"). In the company I work for we have it renamed to "devel" in most our repos BTW.
@ashfurrow to be honest, I don't know which I'd be more upset about: the repo, or the pasta.
@ashfurrow I would frame that one.
