Late night Fediverse is best Fediverse.

It turns into a BBS after 10:30 EST.

I spent a little time unwinding and hobby-hacking recently in Rust. Haven't used it in probably five years. Surprised and pleased at many things that have grown in the meantime (holy shit y'all been busy writing crates), but mostly enjoying the feeling of everything being exactly where I expect it to be. Like a custom-built bike or something. Spoiled, grinning.

It's either a characteristic of my filter bubble or a sign of the times that most of the complaints I hear about liberals these days are from socialists rather than conservatives.

“It’s late so here’s maybe the greatest lesson I’ve learned on the left:
