White Bird in a Blizzard. Definitely my favorite movie even though it’s so sad as it reminds me of my own life2
When I was in school, I could walk as long as I wanted. Only my unwillingness to do so could stop me.
Now I don't even care about my unwillingness, but I can't walk as long as I want anymore – my legs hurt and just stops moving. The spasm won't go away easily and I have to wait for it to stop.
When I was in school, I could learn as much as I wanted. Only my unwillingness to do so could stop me.
Now I don't even care about my unwillingness, but I can't learn as much as I want anymore – my brain just stops absorbing information. I can see letters but I can't read words.
My body slowly decay. By the age of 21, I have two abdominal surgeries, joint and bone issues, clinically diagnosed depression, the food I eat won't digest without pills and much more to handle. If the pain is what stops me now I could only imagine the next step when I don't even care about pain just like I don't care now about my unwillingness.
On the other hand the realization of my own mortality was extremely liberating. Yes, my body slowly decomposes and needs to be fixed here and there but at least I know that my personality heavily depends on some fluids inside my body. I know that I have limited amount of fucks to be given.
I slowly lose my health over time but I gain something more and I gain faster than I lose. I don't care about things like indents or JS trailing semicolons anymore – I just build and ship viable products over weekends. I almost never argue and enforce my vision inside the team I manage as a teamlead.
Yes, I'm depressed and not productive but depression would go away and my confidence is here to stay. I'm here to earn just enough money to buy a house and launch my own small projects that wouldn't require that much time to provide me with basic needs.
Everyone I see is fighting a hard battle. I'm here to end mine.3
Boxcutter blades welded onto a lamp post near USA embassy in Moscow, Russia. I’ve never seen that kind of shit anywhere else in my country.9
I've just been pre-diagnosed with clinical depression. MRI and couple other things is needed to clarify things out but taking pills is imminent.
I just hope it's a journey to my true self and guilt-free life26
I was hired as a team lead. I'd only managed small online teams before but now it's an office job. Any books and articles on technical team leading you may suggest?6
I quit smoking yesterday.
By a coincidence I had a pack of cigarettes named “Kresty” – the brand from russian prison.
Just gave it to Stephen Paul Taylor. There’s no reason to smoke again, just don’t want to loose this kind of story.4
I really thought writing code of conduct was easy. Oh, was I wrong.
So being a programmer I created The Code of Conduct Generator!
Even though it's really simple, it can be really helpful for launching a community or conference for the first time.
Spotify posted a youtube video and made an entire website (https://timetoplayfair.com/) to convince Apple of holding back their greedy subscription policies.
Dear Spotify, if you really want to fight Apple censorship or anything like that, go build yourself a PWA.

“Web does not need reactive programming”
“Everybody use PHP now, we don’t need your fancy functional stuff here”
This and other hilarious things I’ve been told through my career, as well as the story of doctor who tried to teach other doctors to wash their hands but lost his sanity because they rejected him, are in my fresh article.
Fundamental knowledge really allows you to see patterns behind common solutions and changing them if needed.
Fundamentals are the thing to step up from tutorials to creating your own software architecture and being able to implement anything, from micro controllers and low level performance algorithms to cloud stateless apps.
Even though universities provide you that knowledge, it’s not secret and you can pretty much educate yourself and be just as good if not better because of more modern technology available right from the start.
(I have a cs degree tho)2
Today is “Visit your parents and secretly install Chrome as the default browser” day.
Make sure you’ve visited your parents and switched their IE to Chrome.12
This is my first startup. Well, kinda.
This tool suggests you when it’s better to post on Instagram and it also allows you to pick some hashtags. You can copy them just one tap away!
It doesn’t store your data. It has no backend, so your privacy is cared about :D
It’s better when installed as PWA!
Built in just one day. Producthunt and all the other good stuff is upcoming.
I was fed up writing spaghetti logic every time I need switching class names in React, so I made a library to make this easy-peasy.
It's really nice and declarative now!3
This kid on the tape is me. I'm not even two years old there and I'm already messing around with wires.
Five minutes later on that tape I figured out how to turn the vacuum cleaner on and tried to tie it to the cassette deck.
No wonder why I'm a programmer now 😂
I’m from Komi Republic. In Komi language (it’s entirely different from russian), “Komi airport” is видза корам коми мулöн юркарö, pronounced “vid-zah koraam komi muh-loan yur-kah-roah”.
And you said Haskell was difficult5

Ian Murdock, Debian creator, dead in shady circumstances this day, three years ago.
A days before we’ve seen some very strange tweets by him about the police violence, and then his Twitter was immediately gone. But internet remembers everything.
Good night sweet prince.
Gorgeous SE215 got its cable broken? Thanks god I have a spare cable they call “Apple Earpods” and I can solder!11
You know what?
Last night I was dreaming and all that I’ve seen was fucking preloader.
Seriously. I couldn’t wake up. I tried thinking about something else but couldn’t focus on anything else than fucking preloader spinning around. Just couldn’t get it out of my head.
That was terrible. Am I even human? Or was my dreams server blocked? Damn, I’m gonna sleep with VPN tonight.1
