Really good article on complex systems:
A sad tale on how moving from smaller local schools to one large school outside of town has externalized costs to everyone in terms of commute time, increased pollution, and making impossible healthy options like walking or biking.
There's is no such thing as C++: the good parts. The entire language is *made* out of bad parts, and attempting to use the hypothetical subset of it which is good is like trying to walk across the DMZ in comically oversized clown shoes. The language is one giant footgun and anyone who uses it seriously thinks too highly of their own ability to navigate its mess and is certainly overestimating the ability of their peers to settle on the same subset of features in such a way that will not clash and immediately create spaghetti upon their mutual introduction
That said, here's a solid optimization. Compressing backtraces is a great idea, with the only caveat that it isn't a best practice so I'm torn on optimizing something I don't recommend.
Just got a generic blackmail letter in the mail. Vague details like my age range, city I live in, etc. Looks like it's a nation-wide scam: https://withoutbullshit.com/blog/my-bitcoin-blackmail-experience-started-with-a-well-written-letter
American followers, I hope everyone is preparing for the Climate Strike next Friday. Find a local event near you here:
‘What’s global capitalism ever done for me? What am I supposed to be scared of in socialism, the free health care or the free college?’
Don't just read the link and go "I can't strike," there's also coordinated protests and other ways to get involved.
As the website says, "[o]ur house is on fire - let's act like it."
(Boost this or a better call to action, or write your own, please.)
The Timbers have so many injuries that they can’t fill an 18 man roster tonight. No defenders on the bench, does not bode well. #rctid 🌲⚽️ 😳

This article misses one important point (to me): an email address should work for decades. I don’t want to run a server myself that long, nor do I trust a small startup to last that long. https://poolp.org/posts/2019-08-30/you-should-not-run-your-mail-server-because-mail-is-hard
Bought our first ebike. It’s incredibly cheap ($600) but looks like a decent city bike; we’ll see how well it holds up. https://bit.ly/2SqsBQ5
