A yet another Yesod rant: I introduced bugs into a code base because I wasn't aware of mandatory presence of two request headers that I should have validated values of. Hence, instead of me encoding this requirement via Haskell's type system (the Servant framework empowers you to do so), incidentally I had others waste time in fixing bugs I have grown.
Maybe I should add that there seems to be nothing wrong with the buttons themselves, they all work, but the scrolling doesn't happen when holding the tiny left button... instead Firefox has gone back to the old back-in-history behaviour that's the default on that button.
Youtube-dl is a legitimate tool with a world of a lawful uses. Demanding its removal from Github is a disappointing and counterproductive move by the RIAA. https://github.com/github/dmca/blob/master/2020/10/2020-10-23-RIAA.md
Dear Free Software and Privacy-loving individual,
If you care the slightest bit about freedom of speech, please take 10 seconds of your time to run the following command into your terminal:
That's it. You're saving a very important piece of internet history that may be necessary later.
Thank you for your attention. Your effort makes the internet a better place.
...and while we're at it:
I think following only specific hash-tags of a user would also be nice.
I can't be the only one?
That would also mean people probably start using hash-tags in a sensible way again (I would hope) and would bring a whole new semantic level to the content here.
Hey, cool, the GHC steering committee is thinking about introducing a new pragma that would enable a lot of common #Haskell extensions: https://www.reddit.com/r/haskell/comments/je1t82/does_the_idea_of_xghc2021_excite_you/
An excellent idea IMHO. A new standard would be even better, but with the current world situation it apparently lost momentum.

It went rather well, if I may say so myself. Participants seemed to enjoy it, though I still have to see if I get any private feedback later on.
