@CodingItWrong You can't really be a serious goat farmer these days without software. But I've heard you can be a tech influencer — and that won't change very fast, because despite years of trying, nobody managed to get tech influencers to correctly use as much as pocket calculator, without hurting themselves.

Let me present to you the next logical step beyond serverless and no-code: no-software. Do not use software; instead, go become a goat farmer.

Tech worker: *looks wistfully into distance* "I should get a small place in a little town, with a garden, make my own furniture."

I really like what @Crell wrote here:

espcially like the Error marker suggestion that would be handled by ?? and ?->

can we hope an RFC for something like that and/or a ?

sexual abuse by clergy 

I’m not going to repeat any of this story here. It’s intense and graphic. But I will say that it deals with where I grew up, and I know some of the names involved.

Open source contributions are so much more than commits. Design, marketing, strategy, coordination, outreach, support, and communication are areas critical to success that aren’t always well captured by something like GitHub.

Current status:

Computers were a mistake. The Internet especially so.

How does a network engineer try to comfort a switch that's feeling down?

First he tries to tell it to ssh... And if that doesn't work, he'll try to console it.

Hello FLOSS app my old friend
I’ve come to toot at you again
Apartheid techbro will ruin tweeting
So I guess this is where we’re meeting
To infosec shitpost and share everything in our brains
To share our pains
Another round
Of migrations

Much ado about null (and a more -friendly alternative to monads you can use today!)

Trump, Truth Social, and federation 

There's a fake "truth social" instance that's federated, and it's confusing. The admin appears to post mostly news and info from India, but there are accounts on there that either think it's really Trump's social network, or they're fake accounts posting fake information.

One account posted info about how Biden is a Satan-worshipper.

I haven't blocked the whole instance from federating with, but I have blocked it at my personal account level.

I’d like programming language tutorials that focus on how to build a project with that language, rather than the syntax. Syntax is easy. I can learn all about C syntax and still never understand how to write M4 files, configure scripts, Makefiles, etc. to build a project.

Mastodon has a verification mechanism, though it looks different from Twitter's. We do not ask for your documents. Instead, if you have a website that you are known by, you can verify that you are the owner of that website.

Link to your Mastodon profile from the website, either through a visible link, or through a <link> tag in the head of the document, with a rel=me attribute, and link back to that page from your Mastodon profile. It should then get a green checkmark, like @Mastodon.

Looks at this! The next Xdebug release (3.2) will have an extra "return from function" debugging step, in which you can inspect the return value.

It even works with fluent APIs!

But it does need some support in IDEs, as they need to enable the feature.

I'll be working with Jetbrains and Damjan Cvetko to get this into PhpStorm and the PHP Debug Adapter for Visual Studio Code.
