New blog post: "More thoughts on SPAs" nolanlawson.com/2022/05/25/mor

Lord help me, I'm writing about SPAs again. Although this time I chose a less clickbaity title, because I'm tired of going viral in venues like HN where people vigorously debate the title without reading the article.

There’s an unwanted bulldozer for sale on Gumtree if you’re interested. Apparently it doesn’t work.

I think this comes from an essay Lenny Henry wrote about diversity. He wants more of it, but he hates the word itself - he says "Fairness." I think that's really clever. Dude knows if you point to a blatantly racist situation and say "That's racist" then folk get all defensive and oh-maybe-they-didn't-mean-it but if you point to the same situation and say "That's unfair" then there's a viscerality to that that cuts through bullshit and hits us right in our playground days.

Just watched the new Dune movie. A++ that was fantastic. Absolute treat for the eyeballs. Watch it with HDR if you possibly can.

#Google does not fund research groups if they'd work on software licensed under #AGPL.

Use the AGPL to incentivize people not to get funded by Google.

"living under capitalism is not that hard, just get a job"

ok, so it's at least straightforward to get one?

"lol no, it takes jumping trough dozens of hoops and kiss lots of ass, and you are never certain of when you'll get it"

then how the fuck do I survive during this time?

is there a quick-and-dirty one-stop-shop error handling/definition guide for #rust that people can just point to when they want to learn how to stop doing .unwrap() on everything?

If not, does that mean I should write one?

Please, I'm begging you. Stop using .unwrap().

Hanging out with queer kids brings me joy, and makes me glad that even in a few short years things have gotten better for queer kids than when I was in school. I’m working on a high school show and there are two kids doing sound with me, both super gay and one has a trans sister, and was wearing trans pride bracelets and stuff. The stage managers all wanted to hear more about my partner when I mentioned her offhand, it’s so sweet.

i read a thing recently that blew my mind a little.
went something like:

people can imagine time travel to the past and one little act making massive differences in the timeline

but in their present they think even the greatest effort they can put in will not make any difference to the future

Finished watching on today

It's a time-travel show about a Roman who is mysteriously-transported to onsens in Japan, where he learns new ideas about how to build Roman bath-houses

The show makes me want to improve my Latin, and also visit Japan :)

So this is one of the coolest things about Fedora Silverblue (apart from the excellent stability, speed, and gorgeous stock GNOME 42): the first entry you see is today’s operating system. The second one is yesterday’s. If I wanted to, I could revert to the latter with a single command.
