Happy Bi+ Visibility Day, everyone! I see all you bi/pan/poly/omni-sexual and multi-gender-attracted folks! 💙 💜 ❤️

Adding to my excellent run of luck today, exactly 15 seconds after I finished hanging out the washing, the sunny sky began firing hailstones into our yard.

If you're still using Travis CI, maybe stop. They got bought by a vulture PE firm a couple years ago, and laid off anyone who knows what they're doing. This kind of security issue was inevitable. twitter.com/peter_szilagyi/sta

I wish the left had any organizing systems that were as effective and consistent as fundamentalist churches, but somehow “work very hard, make the world slightly better” is not as appealing as “avoid hellfire, obtain paradise”
