I wish dependency management systems could be as convenient and modular as they are but without the side effect of so much code being used in products that a maintainer might not understand. I try to read through a lot of the source code for packages that I use, but I’m still guilty of just importing a package and then forgetting about it once I confirm it works.

"I tried leaving Facebook. I couldn’t" by Sarah Jeong theverge.com/2018/4/28/1729305

Great read, and this comment in a thread by her also hits home for me: twitter.com/sarahjeong/status/

I want to start a project to rewrite Composer, the PHP dependency manager, in a language that isn't PHP because the memory issues inherent with using PHP for such a task is really annoying.

Before I start on this though: is anyone aware of a Composer-compatible binary that's not written in PHP that already does this? Github says there's thousands of forks but my brief search didn't turn up anyone who was trying to do what I suggested.

Things that are fucking rad:

A 51-year-old demo record showcasing the then brand new Moog modular synthesizer, featuring electronic doodles by synth pioneer Wendy Carlos. More-or-less marks the point where synthesizers started to become widely usable.

Honestly I don't like how google's reCaptcha v2 makes you check "I'm not a robot". It doesn't matter if it's true, I just don't like being reminded :robot_3:

Ok so I'm now a fan of KDE and no longer miss GNOME3's nice things that I put up with its annoyances for.

Crazy how I was biased against KDE for over a decade and didn't even go near it just because it was ugly and power hungry in 2007.

I can't tell if I like functional programming or if it's just that writing object-oriented code in PHP frameworks makes me want to burn down every building in a 20-mile radius.
