How do people manage to hide their pain

There are people that I know have it so much worse than me but somehow still appear to function

I try my best but only end up spreading it

Albert #Uderzo left us today... "Astérix" was certainly the first comic I read and his generous curved drawing style had a big impact on my way to draw. Rest in peace.





I have no words


There is hope for all things but death.

For the last three years, I've taken the silver lining that at least the US was mostly keeping its longstanding destructive streak inward, and facing all the pronounced resistance that its systems were designed to permit.

I'll still hope for the best. As much as I can, given the assassination of a country's #2.

I haven't felt this much dread since 2003.

Making a face and grumbling about "car privilege" when I offer a ride :|

Just, geez. I assume from the lingo that this is progressive somewhere in the world, but even doing my best to think of as many different competing needs as possible, how does this help human flourishing?

I'm not native to the US or its culture that has been not too subtly spreading across the world, so maybe I'm missing something?

They still took the ride, so I'm not even sure how this could be a deeply held conviction

Did I mention there's space

AHAHAHAHAAHAHAH there's a Factorio mod that makes an ENTIRE GALAXY full of planets to explore (plus their orbits)

It's okay I didn't need a life anyway

Ah, the freezing, wet, and miserable months

It's *supposed* to be spring here

One of Neon Genesis Evangelion's core questions is whether the self can survive a piecemeal deconstruction and reconstruction over prolonged exposure to traumatic events.

This problem is known in philosophical circles as the Cruel Angel's Ship of Theseus.

another coworker, on a past hack:

"There was a Ruby... abomination that someone wrote that hooked on the 'undefined method call' hook of the base Ruby object, computed the closest actual method by using Levenshtein distance, and delegated to that function instead."

Nice touch. Mozilla has also deleted Telemetry data for that period as some users had to enable Telemetry to get the hot-fix.

"In order to respect our users’ potential intentions as much as possible, based on our current set up, we will be deleting all of our source Telemetry and Studies data for our entire user population collected between 2019-05-04T11:00:00Z and 2019-05-11T11:00:00Z."

We are both working with our child to convey a DIY approach to most things. We repair our stuff where possible, try to do things manually ourselves. Sew costumes, make puppets, visit the fablab, see how one can make 3 dimensional objects from plastic or wood by oneself.

If you get older my child I hope you will be able to see that computers are things that can do stuff you want and not mere devices of fate, some weird dice that the higher ups cast for you.

Keep asking, keep taking everything apart. Get to know technology and culture. Keep asking questions. I will try to answer as many as I can. ♥
