Realizing my phrasing here accidentally betrays my mental modeling of “these ignorant legislators” as a single monstrous entity rather than a collection 😅

All these ignorant legislators is reminding me of when we had an anonymous questions section of sex-ed and someone had asked “how do gay people have sex” and the teacher said it was an inappropriate question and didn’t answer. Note this was in Portland, not a conservative area…

You go to brunch and order a monte cristo, but instead of a sandwich you’re imprisoned on false charges and have to disguise yourself as a corpse to escape. The restaurant charges you $25.95 plus tax and tip.

That was a weird failure mode. Got a Slack notification, tapped it, a blank white page spun in place three times and then it removed the slack instance the notification was from, signed out of another, and loaded the third.

Yeah, tweet length limits made that unclear. The count was the old scheme, generation hash replaces it.

Yeah! The plan was: I have a “generation count” in a shared memory page, but I can’t distinguish between “your in-flight write landed” and “another process’s did, you’re next” with just a count. So hash content + previous hash, if you see what you expect, it’s your write.

If you interpret blockchain as just merkle trees, rather than that + being distributed + proof of work/stake/w/e, I nearly used it for resolving ABA race conditions in NSUserDefaults. I ended up just making it synchronous instead and not having to worry about it.

.’s SB50 is getting most of the attention for being kicked to next year, but look what else died in Sacramento this week. Even a tax break on tampons? Really?

Hey y'all! I would like to talk about the EQUALITY ACT. This is a really, really big deal for LGBT rights. Assuming the USA still exists in four years. It’s basically the Civil Rights Act for LGBTQs, and the House just passed it.

Likewise! I’d been meaning to drop in and say hi but I’ve been really out of it this week >.<
