Time for new #introductions!
I also do software stuff because of course.
Uh, what was I gonna write? What do I love?
Oh, right, sorry, walked way from the textbox for a moment: I love going to bed.
That moment as I'm drifting off to sleep and I have to worry about nothing but my own thoughts. My dreams and my imagination are my current playground. There may be problems, but the problems can wait. The only important thing right now is my own mind.
Last night I was trying to recreate Hansel's lemma, just going by "discrete Newton's method". Fun times!
Re: actix-web maintainership crisis
I have two simple mantras which establish my philosophy here:
1. YOU are responsible for your dependencies.
2. Open source participants are volunteers and owe you nothing.
It was never Nikolay's job to vet actix-web for you, nor did it become his job when the library became popular, nor does invoking "security" change anything in the slightest. Your dependencies are your responsibility. Responding with vitrol, anger, or hate when failing to uphold this responsibility bites you in the ass is just being a jerk.
User entitlement is totally unjustified and will burn out maintainers faster than almost anything else. I don't stand for it. If any other maintainers out there are struggling with this, please send me an email: email@example.com. I'm sympathetic to your cause and I can likely lend some pertinent advice.
Whoa, I just learned that the Japanese blood type superstition has its roots in some pretty deep racism. The original proponent wanted to explain via blood types why the native Formosans of Taiwan didn't want to be ruled by the Japanese occupants as opposed to the Ainu in Japan who have not attempted a rebellion in a long time.
This is straight up Nazi rhetoric. It seems a little less charming now when fictional Japanese characters list their blood types.
She added a verse in French!
I got to meet her an event a while ago and she told me she's good friends with Alejandro Marcovich. I'm really digging this tune.
Further evidence that the very concept of #spoilers was invented by Hitchcock in the the 1960s:
