Do you care if there is a strong ordering in instant messaging (IRC, slack, discord, etc) between people, that is everyone sees the messages in the same order. Boosts appreciated.

"Okay, here's the scenario. You are a crew member on a starship."
"Cool."
"Space travel is slow, you'll be stuck with your crewmates a long time."
"So we must get along."
"Yes. Communicate, listen, share limited resources."
"I can do that. What's the starship called?"
"Earth."

Wow okay so I've finally encountered the gatekeeping shit. Bug opened against plugin for droneci by someone else, conversation gets bad, bug closed to the effect of "pr or gtfo". I figure out what's going on (yep, user error) and add a note to the docs in a pr which gets shouted down with "if you don't know that you don't deserve to have it work" (paraphrased) by the same person. Impressive.

Heh, remember when portable CD players were are a product category even though they objectively didn't work yet? It was impossible to actually move around while listening to music, which should be the the entire point of a portable CD player, because the slightest movement would cause the music to skip. People convinced themselves it was cool anyway, because it was new shiny expensive thing they could conspicuously consume in front of all the scrubs who still used tape players, old cheap trustworthy devices they could actually listen to music on

Anyway, Stadia seems cool

Peanut butter doesn't contain nuts or butter. Hemp seeds are nuts, while strawberries and raspberries aren't berries. Oyster mushrooms are oyster-free, and eggplant doesn't come from a cloaca. Food names are often nonliteral, so don't piss your pants about veggie burgers/oat milk

I don't often post about politics here on Mathstodon, but this is exceptional.

The Department for Work and Pensions has destroyed reports into suicides linked to benefits being stopped.
