Kamala Harris Holds Emergency Call With Dem Donors
  • It's so wild to me that one of your two political parties is actively trying to dismantle your democracy and everyone continues on as if it's normal.

  • Shocking
  • I'd wait until they're out of the room just to be polite, but that's it

  • Good job, guys...
  • Haha and on a Friday

  • Celebrating or coping today?
  • I should drink more Earl Grey. As far as caffeinated teas I pretty just go from English Breakfast in the morning, to green tea in the afternoon.

    Earl Grey seems like a "fancy" tea, outside the somehow. Like if I'm making Earl Grey, I should be making it into a London Fog or something.

    Nice talkin tea with you haha

  • Syntax – The Jenkins
  • Omg it really does - how is that so cute??

  • Just had a job interview. I didn't know that anti-stress balls are single use
  • I've never heard of this turning the camera off.

    I would find that extra hard - just like presenting to a black mirror lol. It's so hard to tell if you're on the right track without checking the audience's expression!

    But it sounds like a positive outcome. Hope they call you back and the rest of the interview process goes smoothly!

  • Syntax – The Jenkins
  • Rofl but what does it even compile down to? I could see a program that just concatenates and prints every string included in its source code

  • Just had a job interview. I didn't know that anti-stress balls are single use
  • How do you think you did in your interview?

  • Taking up all the attention
  • Oh my god, bro on the right brings enough cake for the whole class

  • If you understand this meme, I hope your back is feeling fine today.
  • Hell of a way to deliver a posture check

  • Celebrating or coping today?
  • I would've figured you to favour the Earl tbh

  • Users of Vim and similars, what exactly makes it useful compared to other text editors? How much time do you suppose you save when working with it?
  • Welcome! I also stumbled upon these after I'd been using vim for a while. You've probably seen them in guides but glossed over them like I did originally. But once you get used to using these keys, you'll wonder how you lived without them!

    Used in combos like f(dib (delete function parameters), or 2t. (go back two periods, or sentences) they're so great for moving within a long row.

  • Celebrating or coping today?
  • Yeah this realisation came about at the time I realised beer was taking more than it was giving, even when I wasn't getting buzzed.

    Now I'm in this picture, but with like hibiscus vs camomille tea rofl

  • Users of Vim and similars, what exactly makes it useful compared to other text editors? How much time do you suppose you save when working with it?
  • For me it's plain ol' tT and fF. I get frightfully bored when a text field makes me use Home/End/arrows 😪

    It's like, I know where I want the cursor, just let me GO there. And no manually moving my cursor into position is not it. It's so not it

  • Users of Vim and similars, what exactly makes it useful compared to other text editors? How much time do you suppose you save when working with it?
  • Yeah when my hand goes to the mouse it feels like I've broken a combo or streak. Like I've switched from an active to a passive mode. The mouse is for clicking and scrolling, like reading email and webpages

  • Users of Vim and similars, what exactly makes it useful compared to other text editors? How much time do you suppose you save when working with it?
  • That's fair, but in a week you're effective, and after a month everything else seems wrong - like typing with oven mitts on.

    But I enjoyed learning vim. It was like learning the controls to a game that I get to play every day. Now ten years later, I'm still finding little tricks and optimisations. I'm still having fun learning vim.

    If that doesn't sound fun to you, then I get why it isn't worth it, though.

  • Lord of the onion rings
  • Well, I am

  • Funny Hooting Faces
  • Omg this owl is so expressive, I can't get over it!!

  • Funny Hooting Faces
  • Exactly!

    Writing Club - July 2024

    Welcome to the inaugural writing club update! This is a brand new writing club, first proposed here. I have some ideas about what I want from this club, but where we go from here is open ended.

    So feel free to start new posts or spinoffs in between my monthly posts, as long as they jive with the rules in our gracious host community's sidebar, you have my full support. :)

    On to the whole point of this club! The following brave things set to text concrete goals for themselves (linked beside their names, just below). If you'd like to join their number, simply say so in the comments, along with your goal for this month. Okay, here are the stars of our show: 👏👏👏👏

    Participants

    You don't have to share any of the actual material you've worked on unless you want to (you could even use our local Etherpad to share writing stuff - for example).

    Here are some questions to start you off. I'm genuinely interested in your answers, but don't feel you need to follow my script. This is just a prompt:

    • How do you think you did on your goal(s)?
    • What would you like to accomplish for our next check-in in August?
    • Is there a part of your project that you'd especially like feedback on?
    • Is there anything about this writing club you'd like us to do differently?

    No stress if you didn't accomplish everything you set out to (I fell short and I'm still here hehe). I would love to hear your updates no matter how things went!

    I'll share my own progress in a comment below. What I'm hoping from this step is that we treat this as part check-in, and part conversation. This is your chance to really dig into each others' projects (and if someone has done so for you, maybe it would be nice to return the favour and take an interest in their own project? ;))

    Writing Club

    I've never been in a writing club but I'm interested in trying to get one going. Would anyone else be interested in giving it a go? I don't have to lead it, but will do so if no one else wants to.

    What I'm picturing:

    • Monthly check-in cadence
    • Everyone sets a personal goal, and then talks about how they did the previous month
    • No pressure other than what you want to take on to motivate you
    • Maybe some "assignments" in the vein of a creative writing class
    • I volunteer to send members reminder DMs to motivate them :)

    I was thinking I'd just start with this post - come up with a goal for myself to accomplish by end of June, and then check back sometime in the first week of July. If that sounds interesting to you, feel free to join in and comment with your goal, and any details you want to add.

    PS Also very open to writing club discussion meta. I'm new to this so wide open to suggestios, comments, critique, etc.

    Getting up today after failing yesterday

    Screenshot of Mario Kart for SNES with text reading "give up?" And two choices shown: "yes" and "no." The option "no" is selected. Luigi is also pictured on the lower half of the screen.
