I swear I'm this 👌 fucking close to writing a script that catches when I write the identity map following a stream _where I just needed the damn stream but I'm so used to calling map afterwards I made a no-op map_. That is all.

Or maybe if I post shame myself it will sink in

@knittenkitten Good luck, write lots of tests, semantically version the hell out of yourself, NuGet your artifacts, and here take my coat

also this bottle of adult beverage of your choice

@lynnesbian I will wear my ban with pride as soon as I can find a different picture of me that isn't thematically similar to the first one

*shouts noooooooooo*
*dives ineffectually in front of a nearby keyboard and monitor*
*falls to floor*

the term "libertarian to fascist pipeline" implies that some work has to be done to move from one to the other.

for that reason, I prefer, "the libertarian to fascist kiddie slide."

Fun fact: I never got to propose to my wife in a “traditional” way, and our original vows were written by someone else for a religion we both disagree with.

Since we recently celebrated our five year anniversary, I decided it was time to ask for a vow renewal and get “five years of bling packed into one ring.”

She said yes. :)

the Battle Angel Alita movie kicked ass. I wish there were a more gory version but given our awful timeline this provided sufficient respite

@lynnesbian you win this round, floss ><

*later, at the dentist*

you also win this round, floss

@dshafik @ellotheth I feel like this is a great opportunity to remind everyone that "nobody would ever do that!" in software means "someone is ready to do it as soon as you push that new version, and they are licking their chops and rubbing a fork and knife together right now. You can see them"

Urgently need a 'no' option for "Will you rate your transaction at amazon"

@lynnesbian this sounds an awful lot like All Software And Infrastructure

AMA about the time my teasm wasn't allowed a cloud-based Active Directory replica and we had to introduce Atlassian Crowd

Youtube won't stop recommending me jordan peterson videos.

I have never watched one.

I keep saying I am uninterested in them.

The rest of my recommendations aren't any better, most of them are the equivalent of clickbait advertisement "articles" on the bottom of websites.

A huge company full of people far smarter than I will ever be has put countless hours into making an algorithm that just vomits up junk recommendations to me that try to waste my time and get me upset..

The future is now.

🎅: Ho ho ho! Hello children, I'm Santa's cousin, Arbitration Clause!

👧🏽 👦🏼 : uh, what?

🎅: Did you know that many workplaces and services now make you to waive your right to bring complaints against them in court, and instead force you to appear before a private arbitrator that they choose and pay for?

👧🏽 👦🏼 : oh jeeze, the left can't meme.


@foxfire Not sure if you mean 'for Windows' or another platform but BitDefender

If you mean another platform, nope

People call me old for using Eclipse IDE, but the true secret is that deep underneath it all I just want Borland Turbo-C++ back
