@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

If a small percentage of looting rioters discredits the entire movement, then what does a small percentage of bad cops do?🤔 - Anon

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

Curfews are a great example of how law works in this country. They don't create the curfew because they think it will prevent a behavior from happening, they create the curfew because they want a legal reason to throw you in jail and attack you. they create laws as justification to target specific people they hate.

Let's talk about electromagnetic interference and trunked radio systems, often used by police, fire, and EMS. Unfortunately, some of these systems have critical flaws.

No particular reason to be talking about this now, of course, but I'm bored.

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

I just learned the video is up of "Countering Imposter Syndrome Culture", Sage's 2019 SeaGL keynote! There are lots of talks for people who have imposter syndrome, but this talk tells you how to avoid triggering imposter syndrome in others. archive.org/details/imposter_2

@clacke I finally got up the nerve to listen to the interview and I'm happy with it, yay 😁

It reminded me of one thing @fluffy mentioned though, which might be a good addition to the show notes: tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6721 is informally referred to as the Atom tombstones spec, although officially it's 'The Atom "deleted-entry" Element'; the "tombstones" terminology only lingers in the XML namespace URL for it.

Also if you do decide to update the show notes again, I guess I could be pedantic and say that the organization is spelled "X.Org", not "Xorg", unless you're referring to the specific device-dependent X server implementation. Of course, absolutely nobody actually cares. 😆

Why do people get tattoos of seemingly random Roman numerals? I usually assume they're Bible references but I saw "XLVII-IX" and like...?

It's not the right format for a verse so what can it be? It doesn't make sense as any kind of date, is there some joke I'm missing? I've seen this pattern before with other numbers, consistently mystified. Surely it's not just because Roman numerals look cool...

I've always thought of nano as a text editor that exists for people like me who haven't learned vim yet

But it's only recently occurred to me that like. People made nano. And they still develop for it. It's maintained. They're probably proud of it. It's good software.

It didn't emerge from the aether as a stepping stone for text editing in the terminal.

It's kind of changed my perspective, actually. I still want to learn vim, I've always wanted to, but I'm going to try to not be embarrassed to admit that I use nano for now. It's good! It's few people's favourite but there's absolutely nothing wrong with it.
