One doesn't "blame" their teammates for the code that works, which usually constitutes the bulk of a code base.

My Invisible Sun redemption email came! Placed my order and am in the shipping queue.

I wish discord didn’t put every user in every public channel for a given server. Opt-in would be better than having to go through and mute all the channels that you’re not interested in reading.

I don’t know anything about this book and I don’t need to. It is perfect just as it is.

New study that suggests that at least in terms of a person’s primary job/income source the gig economy is not reshaping employment. nyti.ms/2M4NJaG?smid=nytcore-i

That’s not too surprising given lack of benefits and low pay, but I’d like to see more data on to what degree the need of a side job has increased (which anecdotally seems to be the case) during the same time period.
