@xj9 the normalization of the idea that software is in one of two states: either regularly updated or abandoned, is one of many obscene things about contemporary computing culture
if something needs to be regularly changed in an additive and (in context) meaningfully novel way in order to just continue working in the same way then it's unacceptably fragile by any reasonable standard. if that's due to the environment in which it exists then under any other circumstances one would look for a different environment.

when an american man walks into a quaint wee pub in Scotland and announces he is 1/8th Scottish, we all leap up with tears in our eyes & cry out "a lost son of Alba is returned to us!" and everyone busies round him and gets him a whisky and an old lady called Morag tearfully hugs him and calls him a bonny lad, and we all ask him to marry our bonny daughters, and the auld men start up a ceilidh tune and we teach him to dance like a Scot and when he's all tired out we cut off his head and eat him

can't really be mad at kids for yelling and crying in public. The only thing that separates me from them is a flimsy patchwork of coping mechanisms, some of which even sometimes work

like how fucking humiliating is it that I need to ask t-mobile, like I need to call someone, and beg them to let me unlock my fucking bootloader, and if I don't want to do that I need to wipe it completely, download an international firmware, download an old rom, unlock the bootloader, wipe the phone for the second time, and then install a different rom for the second time that afternoon just so that I can,,, not have t-mobile literally own my device
