Pinned toot

If you're doing any "fun" weekend projects for personal ops, and would like to share with the masses, is a great hashtag to follow and toot under.

Be as descriptive or vague as you like, who knows maybe you'll inspire someone else to explore the wild and wooly world of libreops - operations in the open.

ideas:

- building a SBC powered home appliance
- Drudgery work like syncing backups
- Patching systems (you are patching them, aren't you?)
- poking a remote unit thats gone AWOL

I'm a pretty "run of the mill" geek. I'm an operations engineer by trade and don't talk much about work here unless i'm having one of those days. But work and my hobbies intersect often 😂

@cypnk Lovely illustration discoveries :borglove:

Thanks for the share, it made my morning :)

Y'all have been busy as fuck since I left. Well done fedi. Taking to the streets and fighting for what's right.

I'm proud of you.

Now I'll do my best to join your efforts. :borglove:

"The cognitive dissonance that results is part of the discomfort which is experienced at this point in the process of [abandoning racism]. ... Responses to this discomfort may include denying the validity of the information that is being presented, or psychologically or physically withdrawing from it. The logic is, 'If I don't read about racism, talk about racism...or spend time with those people of color, I won't have to feel uncomfortable'" (Tatum, p. 98)

"While the task for people of color is to resist negative societal messages and develop an empowered sense of self in the face of a racist society... the task for Whites is to develop a positive White identity based in reality, not assumed in superiority.... Each person must become aware of [their] whiteness, accept it as personally and socially significant... in the context of a commitment to a just society" (Tatum, p. 94)

great book you should read about forming racial identity and how white people relate to its destruction. its called "why are all the black kids sitting together in the cafeteria" by dr. beverly tatum

I'm pretty bummed about all the speculation at NASA. We're not getting the full story and journalists are chomping at the bit for some kind of story there...

This makes for the "kind of weather" where we may never truly find the real reason.

🤦‍♂️

I feel like data science is turning into a mad persons fever dream of boiling the ocean to find insights...

This is also a third party objective view of the practice. Maybe I just know mad data scientist s...

in case anyone needs some encouragement today or this week: its okay to suck and not do shit right. like, you're literally a person hurtling through the cosmos on a weird rock and on the level, everyone is fucking up, all the time. people that look perfect just fuck up quieter. they're a fucking mess but not proud enough to claim it.

perfectionism is a tool of capitalism. fucking up and just owning to fucking up is punk as shit. be a loser today and come out swinging when you feel better.

@drwho @antifarben All of NPM is like this, and has been for years. JS devs believe that you should have "tight" libraries, consequently there are a bajillion things that you'd bang out as a oneliner in any other language, but which have thousands of lines of Travis/packaging/test boilerplate and 30 million downloads. For functionality which is literally `return x !== x`[1]

NPM isn't so much a package repository as it is installable StackOverflow answers.
