Starting firefox and loading a simple webpage: 22s on pinephone, <1s on android. Then switching away, it continues using CPU on pinephone, but not on android.
Until we get a facility to quickly suspend and resume arbitrary process trees from disk, the mobile linux experience will always feel slow.

Now live with (hopefully) . Assuming technical issues don't inadvertently let me beat _another_ optional boss today. twitch.tv/kozross

Here's to hoping that today will be the unique and special kind of day where I don't involuntarily get to play QA for every piece of software under the sun...

USPOL/culture/class 

I've often heard people outside the US complain about the US cultural norm of immediately asking what you do for a living upon meeting you for the first time.

While out on a walk, it occurred to me that the function of this question is to evaluate the other person's class/social importance.

Here in the US, we have relatively few obvious class signifiers, at least outside extreme cases (ex. a ragged homeless person or a slick upper class person). So, you have to ask.

covid, in-person meetings 

Look, I know folks are all excited about being double vaccinated and want to throw things to 2019-levels of normal, but until we figure out vaccine effectiveness against the variants and whether folks will need boosters to keep their effectiveness I'm going to say that large in-person gatherings are about as irresponsible as they come.

That goes for users groups, schools, and all of the other things that believe that Fall is when we'll be in our vaccinated wonderland.

rant, C++ 

me reading on new features of C++:

I never, ever, want to even dream about the kind of horror code someone who think they’re smart could come up with.

I just, don’t get how actual humans are supposed to understand this, and I certainly wouldn’t want to learn it:

Fuck Proprietary Skills

People don't learn how to program, but learn how to S3 or EC2, people don't learn how to illustrate but how to Photoshop, or how to C4D. "Oh, I couldn't possibly make music without Ableton.." This is sad.

need I repeat myself when I say that if you want to call your work software engineering you should put the same ethical considerations into your work as engineers

all I'm saying is, stop chasing graphical fidelity, games look fine. you don't need to bankrupt yourself over pixels.
