If you armchair-dunk on Abstract Quantity That is Useful to Your Self-Righteous Narrative, then don’t interact when said Abstract Quantity turns out to be A Person (Namely Me) Having Cogent Reasons For What She Did And Being Ready To Listen, I put a little reminder mark abut your name in the shitlist in my heart

I mean perhaps you don’t care that my Estimation Of You fell, sure, but it did and I feel justified in having so done.

iOS 15 & macOS 12, new pronoun feature 

iOS 15 and macOS Monterey can store a user's term of address, and inflect app text to match. You can use the new Markdown support and Morphology type to integrate this in your apps (with a systemwide selector for Spanish, and API support for Spanish and English.)

It’s out. If it generates discourse, so be it.

Science fiction authors frequently turn to the concept of having an alien civilization with technology that enables feats that humans can't replicate without first learning more, and call this "advanced." This presupposes such a thing as linear, even monotonic progress, which is not an ideologically neutral idea. However, there are some things that do simply increase and improve objectively, such as mambo numbers.

Random thought of the morning: thank you, Nicola M., for teaching me growing up precisely both what it means to have leftist struggle and what it means to be effectively part of a scene instead of a movement

More leftist education serving me in these troubled times from that one classmate than from a million other sources
