I hate it when the gender options are just "male," "female" and "prefer not to say." I prefer /to/ say, actually, but I haven't been given any chance to.

Got it fixed! Turns out I was just using the wrong build command. :ms_sweat_smile:

synthwave glorifying the queer transgressive parts of the 80s instead of the crappy movies that boys fetishize from then, please.

Dudes really need to practice “Cool! Lemme kno if you need anything.”

It’s the near perfect response to women saying “No.”/“Im good.”/“I’d rather wait for X.” Etc.

And it’s a lot simpler than giving us a 13 minute run on sentence validating whatever the fuck we’re tryna politely to shut down.

I started learning at work, because they pay us for time spent learning new stuff as long as the client work gets done, or if we don't have any at the time. (Sidenote: my job is awesome!) So I finally got a userspace install of VSCode and Calva, with help from Scoop for userspace-friendly package management. Now I'm trying to get cljfx working, but apparently the classpath is wrong? Not sure where to start on fixing this, tbh. Could be set in multiple places. :shrug:

people who don't use it don't understand just how profoundly bad of a website tumblr is. i'm not even talking about the community, just the actual software itself. to say that tumblr is incompetently coded is an insult to incompetence. tumblr's source code is the programming equivalent of sweet bro and hella jeff.

PSA: if your MVC controller (*just* the controller class!) is 5,000 lines long, you might be doing it wrong.

Abstraction and compartmentalization are your friends.

Also, yikes.

To be counter-culture, you have to *counter* the culture. And in a world where anti-semitism and anti-blackness and xenophobia and workers abuse and burnout culture and billionaires and r/pe culture exist and is excused, you gotta counter that shit, not repeat it.

"i like your crystal" is gay for "i am queer and i recognize that you are too"

Nothing like a day where you barely get 20 minutes of desk time at a stretch! And no lunch break 'til 4. Oof.

My office turns into a ghost town after like 4:30, and a cave once the sun sets. I really need to get a desk lamp already...
