Babies born today will turn 18 on January 19, 2038, the first date when time becomes unrepresentable using a standard 32-bit unsigned Unix timestamp. It's not far off.

More history: I heard "make illegal states unrepresentable" from (who maybe heard it from ?) and I thought it was worth doing a whole talk on it. I was trying to come up with a catchy title for the talk, and decided to repeat "impossible." I guess it worked! 😄

Maybe it is not so much that we encounter environment issues when coding as, we squeeze in some coding in the brief moments between environment issues

About how many characters long was the longest variable name you've ever written? What about the longest class name? Longest module name?

In any case, some people just want to publish code and learn and meet and work with people that have similar interests; dropping tickets in their lap along with pennies on the dollar is rightly viewed as absurd if you're in that context

Nevertheless, github issues is now absolutely treated as a helpdesk, by both maintainers & consumers. Thus the burnout, mismatched expectations, cycles of drama and loss (especially when people think they're in it for the fun and feels, when others are there b/c it's their job)

The point: this is damn fine customer support, but it's happening where "open source" happens. And while vscode is open source by any objective measure, the norms (and many, many others) it sets and reinforces is are absurd that is absurd to expect elsewhere, nvm from volunteers
