I really should make a #introduction
Being out of the Java space for a little while now, I don't think my issue is the language itself past Java 8.
It's much of what is built around the language. The tools that program in XML. Use of code coverage as an enforcement tool. Unnecessary magic, like dependency injection directly into private variables using introspection hidden from the developer. Plenty of other things too.
I'm hosting a talk at a fandom convention in two weeks. That's pretty cool for me. It will be my first time doing this sort of thing.

Capitalism Show more
Me: I don't support the ideology and impact in the world my job makes.
Capitalism: How would you like destitution for yourself and your family?
Me: WTF capitalism, that's not a real choice!
Capitalism: Okay, how about starting your own business?
Me: *looks at capitalism*
Capitalism: Yeah, you don't really have capital for that. Go work for a different capitalist doing work that's still harmful.
Me: how does that help?
Capitalism: It doesn't, but I get to say you have choice.
#software Show more
Software, as an industry, may have some problems which cause it to grow without bound.
Part of the problem, I think, is the necessity for maintenance continually growing as the amount of maintained software increases.
Inevitably, a parity needs to be hit where maintenance cost forces old software to be unmaintained, prevents the creation of new software, requires more maintenance capacity to be created, or requires more efficient use of existing maintenance capacity.

*Wonders what Mother's Day was originally about*
*Look at Wikipedia*
It was originally about Mothers pushing for peace and reconciliation following the United States Civil War.
Now it's mostly just a day to send your Mom a gift with a meaning of vaguely remembering and being with your mother.
Not that giving respect to Moms is an invalid idea for a holiday, but a holiday to go out and push for peace and the avoidance of war is lacking.

I'm thinking about trying #Freenet again, but it's a hassle. It's slow. Things don't always load. Last time I tried, Freenet was how I've heard the early Internet was: a slow loading, ill-formatted free-for-all populated by geeks, weirdos, and pedos.
Toots from Richmond, VA and around the world. Stick around for good vibes.
