If you travel faster than light, you can in a sense go back in time.
If you have a sensitive receiver, and go to the right place, at the right time, you can hear radio transmissions sent years ago.
I listen to your side of our conversation, until:
"I love you."
And I cry, again.

Hey there, y'all. I'm trying to look for work right now, but with my myriad of mental health problems, it's very unlikely I'll find something I can handle, and we need to pay for rent and food. If you can help, or even just RT, that'd be great.

I'll still continue looking for a job, but any help will give me more time to search before the money runs out. I'm sorry I keep talking about this but I'm pretty desperate.

"I've bitten off more than I can chew," the wizard sighed, pushing away the pile of scrolls.

"So spit it out," her serpentine familiar suggested.


"Spit it out and cut into easier chunks."

"Theoretically it's been in my mouth so I don’t want it anymore."

"Then take different bite but small."

"But I already took a big bite."

"You didn’t swallow the whole thing - just nibbles the rest."

"Thanks, I'll try that."

"I'm helpful!"

open source software, problematic name, breaking changes? 

Anyone else use symlinks as your .gitignore?

Apparently, that behavior is no longer allowed in git v2.32+?
