this man received a sudoku puzzle to solve for his sudoku youtube channel. he was told he wasn't allowed to look at it until he was recording. so on the video, he opened it up and immediately said "i'm being made fun of. this obviously isn't solvable. he's about to get an angry phone call"

..."well, i can place a few digits here and here. but that's it. after that it's impossible."

"well i suppose i could narrow down this digit here but like. this grid does not have a unique solution. it can't."

anyway click the link to watch a man go from frustrated with his friend to unbelievably stunned at the impossible beauty of the puzzle he just solved in only 25 minutes

me: it should be a goal of system design that developers find it easier to do things the right way than the wrong way

I spent parts of January working on a new kind of search engine. Instead of indexing the unfathomable internet, it focuses on enabling search for neighbourhoods of related websites—webrings, or other kinds of topically similar sites.

The search engine is called Lieu.
Try it out: lieu.cblgh.org
See the code: github.com/cblgh/lieu

Really proud of this video interview Branden Bonaby, a May 2019 Outreachy intern with the Linux kernel.

Branden talks about all of the common fears newcomers have about open source: everyone will know more than me, no one will want to interact with a newcomer, and what if they don't like my code?

The answer: just try contributing to open source. The whole community is there to help you improve your code.

also hi I'm still here 👋
just haven't been real excited about any social media for a bit, y'know?

who called it "being supportive" and not "spoonsorship"

@djsundog The policy contribution I'm most proud of was getting the preamble of every policy document to say "no disciplinary action will be taken against anyone who violates this policy in a good-faith effort to protect life, health, safety, or well-being"

If your policy doesn't put people first, it is bad and will fail

am have lots of love

am sending you some

This weekend I made a program that coordinates other programs: as soon as one of them quits, it tells all the others to quit too. I'm kinda proud of the name I gave it. github.com/jameysharp/pact

After passing three months of water across their discerning palates, the mussels are retired, to the body of water from whence they came

Rest easy you gallant bivalves, you’ve earned your peace
