Coders today are like painters in the Renaissance: they're mainly funded by evil organizations, what they produce exists to further that org's evil goals, but every now and then something beautiful comes out of it

If you contribute multi commit merge request / patchset get yourself a git-absorb. It speeds up committing fixups.

I was skeptical at first, but turns out tank ink jet printers are quite efficient.

Above anything else, the first thing I was into with Lisp was the lack of boilerplate. I could just get right into coding.

I tried to tell others about this but they weren’t into it, because unlike me, they actually like code. They like explicitness, they like verbosity, they like type annotations, they like churning out SLOC like there’s no tomorrow.

They love boilerplate so much so that they’ve now made an AI to write it for them.
