Thinking about writing another article about Rust async / pinning / state machines / manually implemented futures, but unsure if it's necessary? Are y'all 100% comfortable with those now? Or is there room for one more?

Welp, neither the old Twitter CEO or the new Twitter CEO cared enough to add alt text to their gigantic email screenshots, so at least there's continuity
Deep gratitude for @jack and our entire team, and so much excitement for the future. Here’s the note I sent to the company. Thank you all for your trust and support πŸ’™

There's an "easy" way to fix this @paraga: 1) make the alt text (& the lack thereof) more prominent in the UI 2) allow adding alt text after the fact no, don't make either of those paid features (aka @TwitterBlue)

employers should be required by law to post salaries in job applications for every single job, period, no exceptions. it is ridiculous we are still going through weeks of interviews only to find out what our salaries *might* be in the end. transparency is key.

I'm suffering through this, so now you have to, too. Please reply with your feelings.
I think what's most upsetting about the SMW from Memory hack is how absolutely off the music is: piped.kavin.rocks/YkVeMDaGTSQ I unfortunately have this perfect eidetic memory for music, so it's just *deeply* unsettling.

It's amazing to me the rationalizations/justifications some coders will jump through to defend using the lena porn pic in their test corpus. Even Lena herself has asked the public to retire the test image. It's time. There is no defense now and it's a shitty test image anyway.
