Mastodon needs a feature where you can attach a private note to the profile of someones you follow so you can remember why you followed them 🤔

⌨️ I just installed the little o-ring things that you can get to make a mechanical keyboard quieter to see how much difference it would make.

It does make it a difference to the sound but it shortens the key travel (which stops the key hitting the board below when fully depressed) so it feels a bit weird to type on it now.

Will have to see how it feels after I've given it sometime to get used to.

In general we're terrible at hiring. We overvalue raw intelligence and specific technical knowledge. (Sorry, this project uses Ruby 2.5.1 and you only know Ruby 2.5.0.)

Meanwhile we undervalue the most important skills: judgement, empathy, and communication. I don't care how brilliant my colleague's code is if the person can't explain it, is a jerk, or the code never should have been written in the first place.
