“Slack in development teams leaves room for sickness, for onboarding, for helping other teams. It leaves room for checking production to see whether the feature we released last week had any unexpected effects. It lets us do our best work. Resilience comes with healthier systems and healthier people.”

the idea that to survive a harsh world one must become morally bankrupt is rich people fantasy, it's fanfiction they enjoy to justify their own objectively horrible impact on the world and others ; humanity has already gone thru a harsh world, that was peak ice age some tens of thousands of years ago and we did it thru cooperation, thru caring for the hurt and the wounded

A few years ago I took an adult ballet class. The class was hard. Exhausting. I was terrible. Really really bad. I never got much better. And it made me angry.

Then I realized how rare it was that I’m bad at *anything*. Not because I’m universally fabulous, but because I’m old enough I rarely do anything new. All the stuff I’m bad at has been weeded out. I like having expertise and skill, it’s satisfying and comfortable. But ballet taught me how valuable being terrible at something can be. Renewed empathy for those struggling. Humility. Accepting limitations. Knowing when to quit. Patience. Persistence. All the things it’s easy to forget when you spend all your time being competent.

So go try something new. You can only gain from it.

I have performed an unscientific survey of people who are working in coding and cybersecurity to see what language they use most often.

The result: profanity.

This is from the Finnish version of "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?"

The question translates as "What is the capital of Thailand?" The answers translate as ... no, let's not.

Well, I just saw a picture of Stockholm Phone Tower that was mostly derelict, then dismantled in around 1952, and yowsa. 2nd pictures is it in normal use, around 1890, with 5,000 phone lines running from it.

I think the tech test for this job has taken me two solid man days. Now, 4-5hrs were due to it just refusing to work on Windows or WSL but still. X_x

I dreamt of a word for teeth that grow back. Phoenix teeth. 🔥
