you want that fake fascist freedom, with the feel of a necktie around your carefully-groomed neck and the taste of boot polish in your mouth, as you drive your SUV through the gates of your locked community, hoping to make it home before the HOA writes you a letter about your lawn? go for it
we'll be over here, with collars around our necks and the taste of our partners in our mouths, driving our beat-up station wagons through the city streets
having lived both lives, i am pretty sure this is the good one

This dumb joke has been rattling around my head since wooloo was announced
The more I work in web development, the more I conclude that the majority of web teams are just not skilled/disciplined enough to build an SPA when a static site will do.
Static sites do not have to worry about:
- memory leaks
- the back button / history
- scroll state
- focus state
- page lifecycle (tab freezing/unfreezing)
SPA frameworks should come with a "you must be this tall to ride" sign.
That was a weird feeling. I walked into a Grocery Outlet I've never been to, and suddenly felt like it was twenty years ago, and I was halfway across the country. If that place wasn't selling usb cables and advertising their Facebook page, I would have sworn it was the same store I shopped at growing up. The layout was the same, the aesthetic was the same, the off-brands were the same... Nostalgia is a very strange thing.
Welp, I am officially unemployed a few days earlier than planned. I woke up this morning after a long night on call to find all my work accounts disabled, and my badge not working when I got to the office. Apparently, my manager had HR cut me off before my notice date, because he expected me to not work from home, while working overnight on call.
How I know I'm really ready to leave my job: my employer just announced a new program to set people up with charity work, and now I'm angry, because I can't see it as anything but a cynical attempt to get free marketing by getting employees to volunteer under the company's brand name.
If I ever run an open source project, I'm going to require that all commits run through a linter which, along with the typical stuff, considers comments containing, "simply," "obviously," and other similar words to be errors.
A friendly reminder: if an optimistic nihilist asks you for grocery requests and you say, "the meaning of life," a jar of pickles is a perfectly valid fulfillment of that request.
