I just noticed "foreach" on npm is controlled by a single maintainer.

I also noticed they let their personal email domain expire, so I bought it before someone else did.

I now control "foreach" on NPM, and the 36826 projects that depend on it.

In other words: I don't give a shit about elementary schoolgirls learning to code Rust or whatever. Talk to me about Grandma who lives on a pension being able to continue using her serviceable 2012 computer without being forced to shell out for a new model just so she can keep chatting with her grandkids.

You know what? Things need to get even more shaken up so I think I'm going to buy nitter.

redirects to NYT's site now. So I wrote a little clone to play it in my terminal. Used the bubbletea library by @charm which made it way easier.

SUVs are loathed by everyone except the people who drive them; and in a city the size of London, a few dozen people could in a short space of time make the ownership of these cars impossible, just by running keys down the side of them, at a cost to the owner of several thousand pounds a time.

Say fifty people vandalizing four cars each every night for a month: six thousand trashed SUVs in a month and the Chelsea tractors would soon be disappearing from our streets.

Web dev be like:

"I want to detect if a CSS variable has been changed"
"Sure, here's a very hacky solution with very specific requirements that are a pain to implement because there's no official way to do this"
"I want to detect if a user is sitting in a >3m² room, alone, and hasn't blinked in the last 2 seconds"
"You can use this 1-liner that utilizes the RoomSizeUserPresenceAndEyeBlink API Google pushed into standards to totally not improve their tracking of users"

Yes, with Biden's inauguration we're going back to the status quo.

THE STATUS FUCKING QUO WAS THE PROBLEM THE GAVE US TRUMP!!!

We're still dropping like flies from a fucking plague, cops are still shooting people in the streets, people are still being evicted, white nationalists are still organizing openly ....

Biden being inaugurated hasn't changed a goddamn thing. Quit acting like a miracle has just occured.

US pol 

Stop calling the Trump supporters who ransacked the capitol building "protestors" and call them what they are: a mob of fascists.

Stop saying that these people "stormed" the building and remind people that the cops let them in.

Stop letting white supremacists set the narrative by legitimizing their language and use language that reflects the reality of the situation, Trump and his base just attempted a coup.
