in case you've ever wondered why the "techbro" stereotype is so widely despised, here is a handy set of four images demonstrating why

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! 馃挏

Genie: You have ONE WISH.

Me: Alright, I have one, but it's very detailed.
Genie: As long as it is only one wish, you're allowed to spend as much time as you want detailing it.

Me: Alright, here we go. *Grabs notebook and takes a deep breath* The key words MUST, MUST NOT, REQUIRED, SHALL, SHALL NOT, SHOULD, SHOULD NOT, RECOMMENDED, MAY, and OPTIONAL are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

Genie: Wait, is that...?

Me: *Flips notebook* Chapter 1. Preamble.

developers having powerful development hardware is actively harmful to usable software existing

there is literally an order of magnitude of power difference between the machines many developers use to create their software and the machines that their users will have - and that's assuming the users have brand new (but average) hardware

today's developers write software pretending that there will always be infinite resources, because the computers we have *let* them do that without consequences

My hope this year is to make #NaNoGenMo a thing on the fediverse. If you haven't heard of it: it's National Novel Generation Month. The idea is that people try to write code that writes a novel in the month of November.

It occurs during National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and like its namesake, it's actually international.

More info here: nanogenmo.github.io/

(@hugovk has been admirably running the event for more than half its lifespan and just joined the fediverse!)

Science papers are always full of figures, but very rarely are they to scale, but in this astrophysics paper, which I鈥檝e never heard of an astrophysics paper having a figure to scale, the authors included a 1:1 scale of a 5 Earth-mass back hole. So take 5 Earths worth of mass, compress it so it curbed spacetime infinitely, and this is how big that would be.

My hand for scale, don鈥檛 let your actual hand get that close to a real black hole though.

We all know that Google (with Chrome-ium) has at least close to 90% of the browser marketshare on the internet.

Which is your primary browser on your computer?

Remember that Brave, Opera and Edge are Chromium derivatives. I consider Safari to be separate since it's Webkit and not Blink.

Retoot this to get more votes in.
