Heinlein was surprisingly racist for someone who opposed racism and surprisingly creepy for someone who respected women’s agency and believed strongly in consent. Medlesohn wants to do the “product of his time” thing but I think it’s more useful to look at him as a prototypical facts-and-logic bro, shaped by his time studying engineering at a naval academy. He works on rules and fucks up because he’s not capable of understanding others’ subjectivity.
When you have 30 projects running concurrently.... you get a tray system as a matter of survival. I work directly from the trays, moving them to/from my workbench. No cleanup needed to swap projects - just swap trays. #leanmanufacturing #engineer
I didn't hesitate even for a second to take the quiz.

Today Mailhog (https://github.com/mailhog/MailHog) bailed me out for the n-teenth time.

So I bought an iPhone SE after I shattered screen on my OnePlus 3 again. I've been using it for a few weeks.
Android has KDE Connect, but its being broken with *every* *single* *update*. Whereas closed and proprietary iPhone just lets me download photos over PTP.
I thought by using android I'd be closer to idea of having general-purpose computer in my pocket. In reality this isn't what is happening, and as far as *the thing that lets me take photos and make notes* iPhone is better.

Pls Don't read, it's bad.
I thought it would be about internals of fox news, but instead it's about privileged conservative white people whining about being misunderstood, and I keep seeking articles like that for the past months or so, and all of it is just pathetic, and boring and doesn't provide any insight at all.
I started reading The Atlantic around 2016 because they seem to find either upside or normalcy among everyone's gloom. Now I can't opinion pieces any more as it just appears to be really boring conservative whining.
Maybe they've always been right-of-center, and maybe in 2016 their opinions helped to make sense of what is happening, but now it looks like the world just went past them.
I went to grocery store and there was a couple in their 50s not wearing masks, not maintaining social distancing.
They were standing in the line behind me. I ended up putting my grocery bag behind me so I can get some space between them and me.
I didn't say anything to them because I got a feeling it would only start a pointless argument.
