As usual we have a word in German that perfectly describes what we witnessed tonight.

It's called "Fremdschämen" and it's the vicarious embarrassment you get when you see something so deeply mortifying, you feel embarrassed just watching it.

So, it's pretty soon. @sir, is there some form of this that could work on, or is it too corporate and a waste of time?

The 4th grade is learning about story structure and they've got a song called Plot Mountain to the tune of Big Rock Candy Mountain. The 9yo sings it full volume with the headphones on despite not knowing all the words and I am entirely charmed.

Just looked at some projects on Github and saw that the site no longer advertises a standard git command to copy for repo cloning. Now they encourage the use of 'Github CLI' with the syntax of 'gh repo clone'.

No doubt it's a wrapper around git that will slowly gain features that git won't add because there is no need for them.

They are no longer a 'git hub', they are a 'repo space'.

All leading to the classic, Embrace, Extend, Extinguish.

Ok, imported most of the Krita youtube vids to I had waited a bit with this, because I knew #peertube had updated it's importer to also import subtitles and wanted to wait for the instance to update this...

Thing is, youtube's subtitle thing is a virtual hell of confusing buttons and endless js-pageload times, it could take me up to 10min to get the subtitles moved over, even knowing what to do. It's now 10sec to import a single vid+subtitles.

Thinking back to that time when I said "git show HEAD" out loud and my then-girlfriend walked by and bowed deeply, following the instruction.

I'm working on site today for the first time in weeks and have discovered that nature is reclaiming our offices.

Hey Firefox it would be cool if you didn't register yourself as literally every protocol handler

Stop saying antifa.

Start saying anti-fascist.

Make them say out loud what they’re really afraid of.

I woke up this morning, rather confused as my INBOX was overflowing. A couple hours later and I just realized I'm on the HN front page & part of the cron.weekly newsletter.

That kinda explains things 😂

Thanks for all the upvotes, much love ❤️

Anyone here can help me with a list of words/descriptions related to mental health, to physical disabilities, and to LGBT folks?

It's for a game. I want to make sure I use terminology that is correct and not offensive.

I'm willing to pay for the gig, although I guess it shouldn't really be a lot of work?

Any help or pointers appreciated, including boosts.
