I think it’s a real thing, not just a buzzfeed thing. I should look into it too!

It always saddens me when Claire gives her the makeover at the end and ruins her feral raccoon look. “I like that black shit.” I’m with you, Ally.

And now Snyk is telling me there’s a vulnerability in lodash@3 so I have to upgrade to v4. Here we go again.

Software developer changes the way you think. It’s important to check in with yourself, ensure it doesn’t change how you relate to those you love

Asking difficult questions, assuming nothing, exploring opinions until we find the point of divergence. These behaviours make us better engineers. However they make us terrible spouses

Please can we go back to the days when backspace was a legit alpha character? All my code deletions would count as additions and I would be 10x to the max

If you're an OOP expert and you're frustrated that you can't readily identify the responsibilities of parts of FP code, it's possible that you're trying to apply the wrong metaphor, and that responsibilities isn't the way this code was intended to be understood.

I mean, print designers can use absolute positioning for everything, but they only have one page size to consider. Like the web before 1024x768 resolution became common

This is why we need CSS grid. Imagine trying to achieve this with floats and absolute positioning

Watching a Thomas film and empathising with the fat controller. He is constantly stressed. Imagine having a whole network of rolling stock, every one of them a fucking idiot
