I'm neck-deep in IRL progress bars
My #accessibility testing at work involves turning off my monitor and using screen reader software to navigate and use my app.
Fun fact: one of the most powerful and popular tools, NVDA, is free and open-source! You should try it out. It has made my applications more useful and accessible to everyone.
TFW breakpoint conditions are so broken that you add "if(condition)" to your code and breakpoint the following block
I blogged some more about how microbenchmarks may give misleading results

Fucking pissed at white dudes in free software prioritizing exercising their free speech by showing "look, I can make jokes which affect people not like me" and then being like "free software is a movement for everyone"
Nobody has ever questioned whether *I* belong. But I've tried to bring in plenty of other people who left because they didn't feel welcome.

J'avais essayé il y a longtemps un jeu, Forget-Me-Not, et j'ai découvert qu'il a sorti une nouvelle version.

Ça faisait longtemps que je ne m'étais pas amusé comme ça sur un jeu d'arcade.
It genuinely distresses me and makes my life/work harder when my fellow #Linux users send mixed messages to those who support them. It's fair to not want to buy a game, and it's not great to be unable to afford one you'd like, but it's also important to think about this stuff <3
R-COIL is a ludicrously good game, one of my favourites of the last 2/3 years in fact, so everyone with excess game money should back Byte Driver.
If it's half as good as R-COIL, it'll still be amazing!
