Before jumping into someone else's mentions:
✅ Am I being contrarian?
✅ Do I already have a relationship with this person, or am I being inappropriately familiar?
✅ Am I "ironically" doing exactly what this person just said not to do?
✅ Am I derailing another legitimate discussion in order to get on my own favourite hobby-horse or to one-up this person in my knowledge of social issues?
✅ Am I saying "Are you surprised?" when they're disappointed?
✅ Am I providing unsolicited advice?
Today I learned that the reason we mostly encode [CARRIAGE RETURN + LINE FEED] and not [LINE FEED + CARRIAGE RETURN] has to do with teletype machines (these were typewriters hooked up to computers that supported input and output). Because CR is moving the print head about 8 inches right-to-left, and LF is scrolling the paper down ~1/4", LF took less time. If you sent CR/LF to certain models of teletype it could do the LF *during* the CR, saving a little time.
Happy #sundiy. I'm replacing the keys in a crap mechanical keyboard. The new keys cost more than I originally paid for the keyboard, but this should fix it up nice, and it's a little less eWaste than if I just threw the whole thing away.

why do men insist on keeping friendships with shitty people????
like you don't have to interact with them or be nice to them just bc you've known them for a long time and once were close
remove them, stop inviting them places, stop making other folks feel uncomfortable or even unsafe to be With You because you refuse to remove those people from your life
electronics, science, space, bad puns, and one day escaping to the one place that hasn't been corrupted by capitalism.
