Great white shark annual conference: alright guys i know we discussed humans in our last meeting but i must reiterate, humans are NOT seals, are not delicious, and it is not okay to "take a bite just to check". We're getting a lot of complaints about this

Fuck Proprietary Skills

People don't learn how to program, but learn how to S3 or EC2, people don't learn how to illustrate but how to Photoshop, or how to C4D. "Oh, I couldn't possibly make music without Ableton.." This is sad.

Boosts appreciated.
I'm close to moving back to Windows. I can't tell you how frustrating it is to hold oneself back, deny oneself better and easier accessibility in the name of open source, when many open source developers don't give a crap about accessibility, and/or don't educate themselves on it. KDE connect, GSConnect, all were inaccessible for one reason or another, not the least because of Gnome-shell's terrible accessibility issues. That was just the last straw. With the only thing holding me to Linux being Emacs+Emacspeak, I think its time to quit Linux and just use what actually works. It's interesting how being "free" just means being under the power and whim of other people, a mass of developers who have no insentive for accessibility, rather than a cohesive company who does. This is serious, and I want every developer to understand this, understand my deep frustration with FOSS.

If this is true then Google are not merely scanning files for software fingerprints but are parsing them through ML and deciding what users are permitted to read. Absolutely disgraceful.


Nothing says 'job targets' like getting 2 emails and a voicemail a week from a vendor and then silence when you ask a question.

IT sales people are like sales people everywhere; 80% of them are completely useless. They'll bombard you with calls and emails but the second you need them to be useful they're mysteriously busy.

Probably the first laptop that really delivers on marketed battery life.

I know Apple Silicon is basically stuffing phone/embedded tech into a laptop, but holy shit the battery life is absolutely bonkers good.
