@Are0h Yep. Arrogance’s always proof of their unseriousness.
It's wild how some potential clients want you to put together 'example' projects for free as a prerequisite for *possible* consideration for employment.
For example, I had a potential ask me to build a fully featured video player as part of an interview. I asked how much they were paying because that's work and I don't work for free.
They said I was no longer a candidate for the position b/c I wasn't a 'team player'.
It's wild how folks really just want to exploit and steal.

If you join my #Patreon today, you'll not only get all 49 chapters of Nimbus' adventure, you'll get more than five years of stories! That's at least a night of reading ;-)

Mastodon is only one of the elements of the #fediverse, there is more efficient #Pleroma (and allowinger longer msg), #Pixelfed or #Anfora for pictures, #PeerTube for videos (and audio/w picture), #FunkWhale for audio only, #Plume, #WriteFreely & other for full blog, #ForgeFed for source code/#Git projects, #Diokeli for #research papers, #Mobilizon for events. All are united by #ActivityPub protocol, and some by #Zot6 too.
a fear of failure is probably the most harmful fear most of us possess.
and school is a big root of that.
there's a push to center mistakes as being an essential part of the learning process in UK schools but the kids don't believe it, even with my absurd 'Mistakes Allow Thinking to Happen' poster on the wall, even with the extent to which i actively celebrate it and reward it if it's not widespread it's going to fall flat, especially once they're teenagers and the ideas are already embedded
@tomekw I feel like the stuff their added that’s not in the books is very subpar.
''I am not going anywhere! I've lived enough.'' seems to be a poorly formulated statement meaning to say instead that someone has already lived long enough to have seen everything that there's to see, and even such a formulation always sounded very weird to me in #fiction.
