Erotophobia of corporate web 

Reason a zillion and one not to use corporate social media as an archive: Google deleted a university library's *entire archive of videos* for posting an interview with the creators of the lesbian magazine "On our backs" susiebright.substack.com/p/ter #youtube #google #censorship #lesbian

Heard a weird noise earlier and couldn't locate it. Didn't see anything obvious in the stairwell or out front. Turns out the ceiling insulation in the driveway came down. Good thing I don't have to go anywhere today.

Ugh. Slept really badly last night due to weird hot weather. It doesn't feel that hot, and thermometer never got past 30°C, but something about this weather is kicking my butt anyway. 😵‍💫

A long while back I brought the MX Keys for Mac & made that my primary keyboard. At the time I wished they made a mechanical version of that keyboard, now they are. Only had the linear switches version a day, but I really like it so far logitech.com/en-ca/products/ke

Wasn't there a predecessor framework for calendars before EventKit?

Kinda like ABAddressBook was for Contacts framework? Or am I mis-remembering that? Having a bear of a time to actually find it.

my bank has a Pride theme so now when I open the app there's a rainbow next to my deadname

"Michelle Yeoh is great in Everything, Everywhere, All At Once" was true long before there was a movie with that name.

OK, the ad campaign for hair removal cream for men's crotches that has two pink balloons flying through nature close to each other is amazing 🤣

I still want to do that Babylon 5 review podcast. Any mutuals/people I've met in person wanna be my co-host?

"Problem-solution ordering problem" is a term I wasn't familiar with yet:

It is a common mistake made by people answering questions like "should I learn X". If you're starting out with programming, a scripting language without declarations and types is fine.
