In US of A, white men will keep complaining about very high parking charges in the city instead of coming together to demand better public transport. And where it exists, they'll be racist and say they can't share them with "undesirable"* people.

*This was the word used by a former colleague.

Not sure folk are aware that using Google fonts by URL in their CSS undermines the privacy of each and every site visitor, sending their IP to GG with every visit. How? Because with each visit they download the font from GG, not your server.

If you will use GG fonts, don't do this

@import url('[...]

Download that font, and resource it locally instead

@font-face {
font-family: FontName';
font-style: normal;
src: url('../fonts/FontName.woff2');

Today I get to pour beers, drink beers,hang out outside, AND see something like 8 or 10 badass metal bands play live?

How awesome!

1. Anarchism opposes all forms of hierarchy and domination. That is, all situations in which there is an imbalance in power, such that one person's needs and desires are subordinated or treated as less than equally important to someone else's. Justice is not the application of a rigid set of laws, but the resolution of conflicts in a way that treats everyone's interests as equal, arrived at through direct reconciliation between those in conflict by reasoning together.

The one true sleeping position is Sagat's Tiger Knee from Street Fighter and you cannot change my mind.

From a caregiver to persons who cannot get a vaccine due to their age: 

To everyone still choosing to wear a mask in public spaces despite what your local authorities mandate.

To everyone keeping a mask on during large indoor gatherings where the majority around you remove theirs.

To everyone masking up if and when it is possible for you to do so.

Your efforts are not in vain. Your actions are not unappreciated.

I see you. I appreciate you. I thank you. 💛🫂

When people sit here and try to insist, or debunk, the idea of 'racism in tech circles', I always think back to when I rode my bike into work only to find my "Fuck White Power" mug being gone (which held all of my pens so those were just strewn across my desk like 'go fuck yourself'), a 'quiet' keyboard', and a 'quiet' mouse.

If this isn't a passive aggressive "shut the fuck up, Negro", you go ahead and give me your take.

OK! Here's the job post!

- Ruby (Rails) + JavaScript (React) mostly
- 16~32 hours per week, your discretion.
- $66.10~$96.14/hr (With a cap of $120k/yr; so 24 hours/wk at top-end)
- Building software that's used in classrooms around the world to nurture self-actualization from an early age.

It's a ~10 person collectively-managed team that is carefully, intentionally, and deliberately moving towards being a worker #coop.

RIP Tim Feerick

Dance Gavin Dance is such an influential band on so much in the post-hardcore scene and on my music taste, in particular. Tim's bass playing lends SUCH a funky underlayment to their music and is a huge part of their sound. It'll be impossible to completely replace him. Such a sad day.

Got off the phone after 3 interviews this morning to hop on the phone for a proposal meeting.

Got out of that to get back on the phone for 3 more interviews.
