🏒 Lucian Marin Firefox brand is weak, it's associated with IE era and it's dropping market share like crazy. Mozilla brand got a nice refresh, it's trusted, it's associated with privacy and they got new good products that need to carry Mozilla brand. It should be Mozilla Suite for a new internet age: Mozilla Browser, Mozilla VPN, Mozilla Monitor and so on. This way the browser will be their main product, it will have internal focus and probably gain back the market share.
🧐 Nrmn Are there any mechanical and ergonomic keyboard enthusiasts here?
Cole Hudson Just so I have something to point to - biology : now :: computers : late 60/early 70s
👨💻 Matthieu V. Hello Subreply ! Is there people who have experimented with Gemini ?
Miso What project are you all working on these days?
Nick Silvestri Bit of both. Professional software dev as a junior (just started 2nd job, 1 yr experience) has so much friction setting up fragile environments that regularly break and understanding complex build processes and libraries that I can never get into the flow of things. It's a far cry from my personal projects (and even school assignments) where environments are easy and building is as simple as 'make'. I love to code when I actually know what I'm doing.
Nick Silvestri Where did the version of myself that was excited to program and advance my career go? They disappeared sometime after I got my first development job.
😀 Tom I hear you... :-/
Nick Silvestri I'm voluntarily traveling to see family during the worst COVID outbreak yet. My mental health has had a profound effect on my ability to work, and I'm starting a new job, and I can't afford to let my mental health suffer in the transition.
Zero Edge Mental health is as important as physical. Weigh the risks and proceed acording to your risk tolerance. I do not agree with outside entities forcing their risk tolerance on others but I suppose that is something that is debated endlessly.
🌲 Tho C++ is safer, more useful, has infinitely more jobs, more pleasant to use...
👂 Sly Am i the only one who's not excited about this M1 chip? Ram is inside the chip, everything is hard soldered, you can't replace any component. I know it has been this way with macs lately but this time it's even worse. It seems to me that the sole purpose of those new chips is to make them more like iphones and ipads so that the only way to upgrade is to keep buying the newer models.
Andreas Grzybowski Bad. Corona is massively back.
Chetan Vashisht How has corona changed your life?
Nick Silvestri It's made me reevaluate how strongly I desire social interaction. I live alone and have had minimal interaction for months and it's taken quite an unanticipated toll on my mental health. I'm also put face-to-face with the value in the work I do, finding it very hard to find the motivation to do something which, in the grand scheme of things, I don't really care about.
🧐 Nrmn Yesterday I stumbled over a typing competition in the US from 2010. The winner managed to type 163 words per minute on average! I'd be happy about half of that.
Diva Pumpkin spice season - yay or nah?
