Hello all! I'm Russ. I'm based in Western New York state. I like Linux, use Vim occasionally, and mostly program for the web at work. I recently lost 140 pounds and I try to hit the gym three times a week. I'm all about self improvement! Have a good day! #introductions
Our code, which is in git, hallowed be thy semicolons. Thy work be done, in prod as it is in local. Give us this day our daily error messages. And forgive us our commits, as we forgive those who ask us for more features. And lead us not into technical debt, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the DOM, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Stallman.

#Impostor syndrome feels like this:
"I believe that you should pay me more based on my education level, work produced, skills demonstrated, and time with the company."
*gets a raise*
Every time I start to bad post, I take a step back and I think of my dog. I think "What if, some day, dogs can read? What if my dog goes back and reads all the depressing, mean spirited stuff you wrote? You don't want that. So don't put that negative out there, man."
One more instance where my dog is making me a better person.
"In a perfect world, every home would have a dog, and every dog would have a home."
Many of you have probably already seen this, but just for the ones that haven't:

So I had an odd thought over the weekend. The planet, as far as being inhabitable by future humans, is probably fucked. We might not have the ability to change that on a global scale. So that got me thinking, you know, everyone talks about changing the planet, or leaving the planet. Nobody really talks about changing ourselves, about genetically modifying humanity so it can survive the flaming shit heap that ~100 companies and governments are turning Earth into. #genememe
Gratitude is my attitude. #grateful 🌐

"With every sip, I understand you better. ...You son of a bitch..."
I'm interested in programming, Linux, & other CS topics, fitness, gaming, music, reading, politics... you name it!
