I take a bus to the airport when I travel. It only runs every hour-ish (I'm 50ish miles away).

I have a flight at 10:55. Bus arrives at 10:15. Do I do it or do the 9:15 arrival?

Airport == SFO.

the stackoverflow "homage to the 90s" being so femme just reinforces to me how much of a coded-"neutral male" the space is, and reads to me that the feminine is meant to be a source of ridicule

There's a group of 3 boys using the library computers to play a group game (something FPS, dunno) and they're just talking to each other like they're the only ones here ("who killed me?!" "I killed you!").

It's kinda cool and reminds me of LAN parties. Also tinges my grumpy old man nerves. But I have headphones, I'll be OK.

On the new Linux Foundation "Community Bridge":

"Historically, fiscal sponsors in FOSS have not treated each other as competitors. ... The launch of this platform, as proprietary software, without coordination with the rest of the FOSS organization community, is unnecessarily uncollaborative with our community"

Oh good, I reported a feature request to some FLOSS software on github and upon submission my account was flagged (iow: making my profile hidden).

I use this account to manage our work github repository settings (mostly just mirroring from our Gerrit install, thankfully).

What is this? I don't have any meetings scheduled tomorrow. At all. Nothing.

Happy pi day to me!
