had a dream last night that I bought a midi controller at a thrift store, good morning

good morning, last night I continued watching Canada’s Worst Driver, descending further into the Andrew Younghusband Cinematic Universe

good morning, Siri doesn’t know how to pluralize temperature degrees because it’s written by damn Americans and their damn foolish Fahrenheit :dont_at_me:

good morning; we put Dave's cat bed on the book case and he loves it

food 

good morning, Canada got a new food guide and it includes hydration, so make sure you're hydrated!

food 

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!

good morning, my umbrella broke on my walk to work : \

Good morning. I thought today would finally be the day that I quit Brooklyn-based politics irony podcasts. Alas,

good morning, here’s my new guitar

how do I know it’s mine?

it has my name on it 🤗

good morning, I just love Monday mornings because I get to catch up on all my emailsssssss

comment about "master" 

@ashfurrow

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" 

@ashfurrow @maloki Well, Yoda is a 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.
