Uh I just got DMed by the COO of Tumblr asking about hiring contractors to make us fully #indieweb compliant, and possibly even #fediverse integration. Anyone out there looking for work?

Will things get better?

Please boost for sample size.

When practicing TDD, do not add a test that will not fail with your current implementation.

That is assuming you wrote the simplest code to make your tests pass, and you do not have an important documentation need that this test would fulfill.

Every. Morning. The window is never opened.

I think The Batman might be my favorite Batman movie yet.

No on was shocked:

Why capitalise multi-word hashtags?

Because screen readers cannot distinguish between words unless you do. They just spell out the (to them) single word. Just imagine if all your words were spelled to you instead of spoken.
