reading rfc3339 on timestamps and was given this little gem:
Standard time in the Netherlands was exactly 19 minutes and 32.13 seconds ahead of UTC by law from 1909-05-01 through 1937-06-30.
offhour tz's are exceptional now, and it's so strange thinking how noon used to be whenever the sun was highest wherever you were at.

https://ardour.org/whatsnew.html sweet new version of ardour. I'm mostly psyched about the grid/snap UX changes. I still don't know how grid was supposed to work in 5, hopefully new UX is easier for me to pick up.

There's this myth that if you modularize and encapsulate code enough, it's just the same amount of maintenance as no code. That or the myth that adding code that may or may not be used is less than the cost of rewriting it once you know it will.
Most of my time spent in a new codebase is ignoring more and more code until I understand the general idea. Most of the time spent debugging is adding back that ignored code until I find where the bug lies. Both would be eased by having less code.
The speaker weirdly kept anticipating and addressing my own incredulity at mobs and people agreeing on things, as well as bringing up the difficult things like mistakes made and the people hurt by the protestors and seems to present them honestly as things that are still being worked on.
I was surprised at the new methods of coordination effective at grouping and safely dissipating massive crowds, even with the threat of police listening in, as well as the improvements over previous protests, specifically the unifying around a single principle (5 key demands, not 1 less).
