given how fast tech communities like to push new, and in some cases barely tested, frameworks and platforms, i feel like not getting it right the first time is pretty much standard.
don't get me wrong, it's worth /striving/ to get it right the first time. but it just seems like it hardly ever happens the way you want.
It's easy to think about how "high-tech" has changed the world, but remember: there are still people alive who remember when "walking through the architecture of a computer" was not figurative speech but quite literal.
This stuff is still all new to the world, as ubiquitous as it seems most days. Don't be too hard on yourself or your comrades for not getting it right the first time every time, hm?
@chriswiegman you've had a busy year!
@deshipu yeah, the stereo types are definitely over-played (looking at you white scars)
@deshipu i've still got a squad of those figures, between them and the old storm boyz i'm just in love with the old ork stuff XD
@deshipu love those old ork scout types!
@jmtd i seriously need this in my life
@tsturm looks like fun!
and here I'm just stuck with this clunker XD
@ManyAngled yeah, it's a good point. imo, it really depends on the project size and the community who are involved.
for example, the pep8 gates on openstack made sense to me because it helped ensure that code between projects looked at least /vaguely/ similar at the structural level (definitely not at the api level XD).
@ManyAngled was this a python linter?
both things you mentioned sound like strict pep8 compliance issues XD
thanks @shellkr , this is really thought provoking to me.
on some level i'm having this image of the power-hungry sysadmin hobgoblin who lives inside me shouting "yes! finally the workers have the power!".
but on a deeper level, when i think about the nature of the social relation created by a group of people who create a platform for others to use, and the related power dynamics, i'm just fascinated. is there an equivalent in meatspace?
@natsumisummer i recently picked up a refurbished dell latitude very similar to this one.
i've been happy with it, but i use fedora linux on it. it came with windows but i do not know how well it performs as a daily driver. good luck!
i am loving this waaaay too much XD
