overhearing parenting and breathing through it Show more
Uhhhh as I lie down feeling my feelings Andy is trying to teach Leo how to “cut with a sharp knife” and it’s now a long discussion including “what happens when I say stop? you must stop immediately because this is dangerous”

Things I learned today. https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/astropix.html is essentially unchanged since launch in 1995.
thank you, @garbados, for writing about "Structural Advantages for Software Developers to Leverage and Destroy"
i always knew software was somehow special, but i didn't realise how much leverage we (could) have

parenting +/- funny/terrible/exhausting Show more
Just told child I’d be ready when he was done yelling and he stopped, looked at me, and said,
“I will never be done”
then returned to shout/crying
(context: this was over a shirt, he wanted a shirt but not the one his parent thoughtfully got him from upstairs)

Uh oh. The problem with staying up late is that, like, I forgot what sleep is? I’ll never sleep again if I don’t sleep at 9pm.
I'm reminded by keynote speaker Leslie Chan: share your contracts, share your salary or hourly pay rate. If illegal to share contracts (NDA), do it clandestinely. (My suggestion not his.) Compare/contrast. You'll be shocked who gets paid 2x for doing the same work, especially where gender/race is concerned.
I shared this doc of every salary I ever earned a few years ago. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1JPHbAtAc2MU53or9nm_dUTOyyGwsjQqLu_9ITYt3yWg/edit?usp=drivesdk
And yes: I have been paid literally too much money for several jobs

Here for friendly times!
Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.
If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
