Never release on a Friday because if something goes wrong you make people work a weekend

Never release on a Thursday for the same reason

Never release on a Monday, because if something goes wrong you could tank a week of dev work. Same with Tuesday.

Never release on Wednesday because that's when everyone else releases and your chance of an integration break is too high.

Never release. Run into the wild, let your feet touch grass, be free of the chains

Capitalism Fascism Reaction Fuck Off!

Because of the decentralized nature of some of my work, this just has to be spelled out quite clearly. Preparing for impending apocalyptic events should mean collective action and structural reform, not individualism and isolation.

Richard Stallman invented free software because printers were shitty. Now we have free software that run on rockets, but the printers are still shitty.

FOSS maintainers "confessing" maintainer burnout to each other at conferences is a very real thing!

Tidal has always had two big limitations - being only about trigger messages (can't change a sound while it's playing), and having no state (so can't natively do things like markov chains). I always thought these were design trade-offs of representing pattern as a function of time. But this year I seem to have solved both of these problems, by applying some pretty tripped-out philosophy of time, that ended up resulting in very small representational tweaks.. Sometimes when you stare at a problem for long enough it melts away
