Shower thoughts:

all good things come from

• having open, well specified formats/standards/protocols with multiple different implementations

• for each system, picking one implementation of each format/protocol/idea (one event loop library, one UI toolkit, one Markdown parser, one logging framework) and consistently using it throughout all the components that make up the system

I saw the Czech version of the ghostbusters promo poster, and it was too strange to be believed without further explanation. I did a search, and not only is there an explanation, there's also more posters.

Getting my from a local roastery and using an espresso cooker was the best decision of the week. It's just fantastic.

What's the deal with `return` missing in most functional languages? Is it that there's something non-functional about it, or because it detracts from functional idioms?

@trickster @kazooboy I have always considered the “3 Billion Devices Run Java!” panel in the installer to be a direct threat

I love when people get out of Libre software bigotry and push for the better, allowing their peers not to be perfect.

Projects such as @nextcloud and @wallabag or @matrix provide iOS versions of their apps, and I think it does more for freeing users than bashing them about using a non-free system

Libre software is important, but it is a mean to free people, not an end in itself

To everyone who still makes text-based tutorials, thank you!

I'd much rather follow a text tutorial than wait 15+ minutes for a video tutorial to load.

Your work is very much underappreciated. Thanks again! 💜
