We should rename w to something with one syllable it's a shit letter there's no reason it should get three times as many syllables


What's the best way to set up automatic-but-not-always cross-posting between here and birbsite?

I want to put my excursion threads on both,but it's a pain to manually cross-post, and the Twitter app is better for making them, so they end up only there. And in general I want most of what I post there to end up here as well (though not vice-versa). But some things I post there I want to phrase differently or put more CWs on when I put them here.

Is there maybe an easily-disablable tweet-to-toot cross-posting thing? Or a highly configurable one? Or should I maybe just roll my own?

One of the most annoying assumptions that liberals and centrists make is that all of the harmful outcomes of public policy were accidental.

so weird to me that so much of star wars marketing is around "choose your side" like i think a pretty cursory glance at the movie should tell you what side to pick???

I just created a PR with two lines of code that amount to `if condition: sleep(0.2)`, and ten lines of comment explaining why. So that's how my Friday is going.

Like, in another of our projects, we get a lot of sqlalchemy errors that are actually normal operation, which is ofc bad. I want to replace them with errors that say "hey, the fact that this exception is being raised means an error condition isn't being reported straightforwardly, which is bad and should be fixed". When I was doing runbook updates, I added a note of "if you see sqlalchemy errors, you need to catch them and re-raise something specifically descriptive, even if you can't address the actual cause", but having it say that in the error itself would be nice.
