Web dev discourse 

It is in our best interest as developers and users to work together in the fediverse.

Pixelfed is not competing with Mastodon or any other fedi project. The amount of MAU the whole fediverse has is under 1m users. A drop in the bucket compared to centralized, corporate, social media.

(MAU = Monthly Active Users)

I'll personally stick up for Mozilla despite personally being treated unfairly in attempts to get employed there not just once but twice.

This was sent to me from Birdsite:

It's amazing after I, myself, spent a lot of time and effort to evangelize for the open Web to see some asshole who apparently was part of tearing down Edge to call for the destruction of Mozilla.

I really should tell people to not send me anything from Birdsite. I left there for a reason.

I just wanted underlines on links on Mastodon, not to write a damn thesis. At least clients *want* your advice.

Blast from the past! Booted my computer this evening, and it said my kernel cache was corrupted. Haven't had that happen in maybe... 15 years?

That feeling when a dependency for your software pulls its repo and package.

With how much money Facebook has that FTC fine would have to be gargantuan to be more than a slap on the wrist. There should be arrests instead.

Well, shit. The Saints lost. Wasn't able to watch. I found out when I heard my drunk neighbor cursing at the top of his lungs outside.

Oh and wow that ugly purple in the sidebar. Best part about using it mostly via the web app is I can use a user stylesheet to change it!

I get home only to see in my RSS feeds that Slack has updated its icon. Is it just me or does the icon look like a swastika?

You'd think a lock file would cause subsequent pulls of dependencies to be... locked to whatever versions, revisions, etc. listed in the lockfile, but nope! It treats the lockfile like npm would package.json and has a separate toml file for "constraints".

Never thought I'd find a package/dependency manager worse than npm, but go's dep takes the cake.

Finally gotten to watch the new Orville episode, and they get rid of my favorite character. Hope it's a Crusher/Pulaski kind of thing and she returns.

After leading him on a bit (he wanted to get remote access to powershell) I informed him I haven’t run a Windows computer of my own since 2006 and couldn’t imagine how I got a Windows virus. He was understandably crestfallen.

This very nice man from India named Bob who works for Microsoft called me today wanting to help me get a very bad virus off my Windows computer.

I'm always a curmudgeon at this time of the evening on December 31st because of everyone popping fireworks. I'd rather it just be quiet so I can sleep, but Happy New Year anyway, everyone.

"Debugging a page written with BEM is like being asked to enter a hoarder/cat-lady house and find her dentist bill from 2008. You know she has it. Somewhere."

Best description I've ever seen of BEM.
