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

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.

πŸ‘§πŸ½ πŸ‘¦πŸΌ : uh, what?

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

this is your daily reminder that all your base are belong to us

Anyone quoting jobless figures at "a XD6-year low" this week can forget it as far as I'm concerned. Enormous layoffs inside my (now former) company, the media gauntlet, and all the rest.

Jobless claims still totally divorced from reality.

Laid off, along with the majority of my team. So much DevOps, so much build, so many things of which I'm proud. Not surprised but what is up with Jan/Feb and being my most stressful months out of the year? :D

I really don't want to go back to C++ without getting paid _a lot_. Anyone have experience with golang + SDL2 or want to point me to some good tutorials?

After you watch the new Gillette commercial make sure to go pick up a copy of Terry Crews' "Manhood," which is as good a treatise on the subject as exists or will ever exist

Vermintide II is fucking _rad_ but I really need the option to have the same game where we play as Chaos / similar factions

Every time I kill a Chaos Warrior I'm like... just be friends with me you ass

Looking for ideas on how to leave Facebook, taking my photos and ability to contact people w/o phones with me. Anyone got suggestions or had to go through this extremely painful process?

Finishing the college football year on a high note. Texas beats GA and I never would have expected it

Also Iowa? Yay Iowa.

I'm tired of recipe blogs and their wrapping of every recipe in a bullshit long-ass story. So tired, in fact, that I did this. Feel free to check it out, try stuff, or PR it.

twitter users: wow, in 2018 i finished my master's, moved to new york, had my first novel published, got married, and won the lottery. guess it could have been worse! feeling #blessed

masto users: in 2018 i built a minecraft house that looks like my ass. it has a welcome mat that says 'no cops allowed'. it was a good year.

Been having a lot of fun playing lately. Classic MUDs are worth your time, even if it's just to check 'em out and see what gaming was like for us old fogeys

that feel when you look at code you wrote two months ago and you're like "good lord i am an idiot"

The computer games museum in Berlin is extremely worth your time. Informative museum allows exploration without getting bogged down with excessive detail. It comes with all-you-can-play classic arcade cabinets as the cherry on top.
