@sir cannot tell if its a troll, if this took place in ~2011 I could see this being a legitimate internet response.

everyone flocking to read jQuery 4 dummies and jQuery - "the good parts", chowing on pizza at hackathons for free labour joking about how bad prototype.js and mootools are.

@sir and on stackoverflow: "how do I iterate over this list using django?"

@sir this 100%, i'd love a digest / roundup of new or project updates to subscribe to.

might get a little messy if there's a lot of spam or hundreds of updates, but that sounds like a good problem to have with that much activity on t he platform.

"i love your pants, they.... match nicely with your. .. tim hortons cup. yep."

@xvu howdy mr globetrotter, meet any fun new folks?

@ekaitz_zarraga i've considered this as well. i;ve been sitting on one in particulasr for over a year now, most of the parts and design are all ready to start materializing :(

@keithzg im actually giving konsole a try right now, i dont really have a use case for dismissing it as i always have a fullscreen terminal on one of my monitors

I really need to quit cold turkey, but its hard so i'll sort ween myself off of it.

what's your favourite terminal emulator? why?

@sir ah, spoke too soon. `find` found it in ./usr/local/share/

@sir should /usr/share/aerc/filters be populated on build / `make install` ?

@sir is aerc ready for normie consumption?

@thurloat @ink_slinger

Figure out the average beaver's maximum daily travel distance and buy all the available rebar in the radius, just to be safe.

Folks, for years: We have a problem called Surveillance Capitalism, it’s a systemic problem arising from socio-economic factors…

Ex-Googler: Hmm, this problem, very exotic… what shall I call it without criticising either surveillance or capitalism? Time well spent?

Folks: SURVEILLANCE CAPITALISM! It’s the feedback loop between accumulation of information (surveillance) and accumulation of wealth (capitalism)

Ex-Googler: …human downgrading?
