And honestly warnings other than deprecation warnings should probably just be errors.

Like, there's no reason installing a package would cause warnings but be perfectly functional.

Here's a good idea: if installing a package throws an error, then abort and remove it.

Don't tell me it successfully installed with 4 errors. That's fucking insane.

% pip install xyz

Literally npm levels of disgusting 😖

Never gonna forget that time I had a plumber come out to replace my toilet and the first thing he asked me was if he could use the toilet.

That's why you should always hire professionals. This person knows that the second you remove the old toilet you'll immediately need to pee and won't be able to finish the installation 😂

doh.. Just accidentally ran "git reset --hard" deleting 15 lines of code...

That's what I get for using bash history...

I had to instruct an old person how to use an Android phone and it went a little like this:

"When the screen goes dark, you need to turn it back on by pressing this unmarked button on the right. Then, when the screen lights up with the clock, a background picture, and no other indication of what you should do, you need to place your finger on the screen and swipe upwards."

When did we decide that this was a good idea?? I might as well teach them how to use Vim at this point.

I tried to use "gem install --user-install" but that's 1000% broken on my rbenv setup, so using "--install-dir" and managing the GEM_PATH seems much saner.

Shipping a ruby script through homebrew but can't install gem dependencies system wide?

No problem, we'll put the gem in the cellar and have a tiny shell wrapper script that detects the local gem dir and adds it to GEM_PATH at runtime so they user doesn't need to know that the required gems aren't properly installed.

Covid-19 PSA: Depression, mental health issues put you at risk (-) 

My therapist has been talking about this for weeks, but the CDC has put depression on the list of 'at risk' conditions for covid. People with anxiety, depression, bi-polar, schizophrenia, PTSD and other mental health condition are also at risk. It has to do with how chronic stress and inflammation can lead to worse outcomes if you do get covid. This is getting more mainstream press now. Stay safe friends!

Finally got around to upgrading mastodon up from 3.4.0
