people write "a11y" as shorthand for "accessibility" and my mind always reads it as "ally" and then i have to be like "wait no hang on"

Hmmm it sure would be nice if folks just told me things that they do not like about me sometimes

I might be able to learn but only if I know about it

so-called Fediverse instances behind Cloudflare when Cloudflare goes down again. Nice decentralization, everyone 🫠

child labor, worker mistreatment (and therefore child abuse) 

fun (and pretty intuitive) fact: you're supposed to wear a respirator when mixing concrete

memory to go along with this fact: when I was in middle and high school, I went on these trips where my church paid these organizations to let me do construction labor (as in, the people I was working for were getting paid *for me to work* as a *child*) and they did *not* give us respirators or even masks to mix the concrete

ignoring the moral implications of selling a product based on people's voluntary work without their consent, it seems like a neat little gimmick to try for a day and forget about, not something to pay $100/yr for

that thing where someone declares "augh i can't figure out this computer problem" in a techie space and suddenly there's more large nerds than can physically fit in a circle around the misbehaving device all attempting to run their own sequence of troubleshooting steps simultaneously

i wonder if anyone but youtuber techbros will actually pay for github copilot in a year or two or if it will just end up like atom

Mozilla thunderbird has a really nice distinction that i wish more places had: new vs unread messages.

New messages are ones that have just shown up in your inbox, and refreshing the inbox will make them no longer new.

Unread messages will stay unread until you read them (or mark them as read)

This distinction is quite nice to have pointed out, expecially for long threads where all the messages have the same subject.
