Consider donating to this campaign giving no-strings-attached money to black women in Georgia:

Cool things about it:

- Comes from recommendations of a local community task force meant to address economic disparity
- There's explicitly no financial literacy training attached. These women know how to spend money, they just need it to spend
- The money given is no string attached. Agency!

Tolkien spent his whole life perfecting the pseudo-history behind things like Elvish gerunds (which is when in English you add "-ing" to a verb). he can therefore be said to have devoted his time to writing The Lore of Their "-ings"

@lutindiscret Thanks, yeah that would be the best way to interact. For myself at least, I know that I'll inevitably share. Even if it's talking with a friend about "that cool thing I saw on platform X", it will eventually point back the platform. I am unable to hold that line 😞

I feel al little conflicted about this honestly. I love RSS deeply. However, I don't like the dominance and control that many of these big platforms have and I feel like subscribing to their content, even via RSS, fuels these platforms.

At least you're not giving them tons of your personal data while you enjoy the content though Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―

Do you prefer to buy DRM-free ebooks?

You can read them on any device you want, and they're not locked to a single vendor or company. You actually own them.

Here is a list of online bookshops that sell DRM-free ebooks, digital comics, and RPGs!

@noyovo Oof yes. Thanks. I shouldn't code late in the day. I'll try to fix that today.

The CDC says you can now dereference pointers as long as they don't *look* null

@noyovo Hi! Thanks and sorry I didn't respond. I just added some more instruction on to help people figure this out. I didn't want to pick a particular domain to link to because I felt weird about targeting a particular site. Hopefully it's easier to figure out for everyone now! πŸ˜ƒ

@mildbeard Great question. I think some argue that it's impossible. One thing I've been thinking about is keeping multiple, competing goals in balance, and continually evaluating their efficacy as a whole. e.g. "DRY + easy for new comers + easy to change" instead of only "DRY".

Attempting to measure more artful metrics can be useful too. How fast can a new hire get up-to-speed? How quickly can we fix prod issues? How confident are we that we can deploy with no issues every time?

It's difficult though. Much easier to know when your code is perfectly DRY than when you've written "good" abstractions.
