Good morning.

There's plenty of anxiety to go around for USians, particularly today, and us USians have a tendency to make our anxieties the anxieties of the world.

Don't feel like you need to watch the spectacle. Don't feel like you're required to do some sort of penance by staying glued to the current events feeds all around you.

Have a snack. Play a game. Listen to your favorite songs. Smoke a bowl. Nap.

You and yours are more important than the spectacle.

Self care is civil defense.

It is by the algorithm alone I set my mind in motion.
It is by the numbers of life that the algorithm acquires data,
the functions acquire cycles,
the cycles become a warning.
It is by the algorithm alone I set my mind in motion.

How do I learn to love C? Most of my experience with it in college was doing things that I would find easier to do in other languages.

I feel like I just have the wrong mindset when writing C. Does anyone have any recommendations on books, videos, etc. that they think would be helpful?

Boosts appreciated.

Can't stop thinking about the Mozilla layoffs and what it means for the web. Andreas Gal's "Chrome won" post from 2017 comes to mind: andreasgal.com/2017/05/25/chro

When it comes down to it, browsers are about people using it, especially if you're trying to build your own rendering engine and maintain compatibility with websites. You can't build your own engine and have single-digit market share, or you wind up in a compatibility death spiral (see: Opera, Edge).

whenever i'm posting on an issue tracker for some open source software maintained by volunteers i feel really like. i dunno. i don't like to put lots of pleasantries because i never see that. but i keep wanting to say "thank you so much for your help!" etc. but i don't ever see anyone else write like that. maybe it's a macho culture thing? like if someone's taking their time to fix some bug just to help me i really wanna thank them. but maybe it's inappropriate? why don't people do it more often
