How to become a specialist in tech jobs:
you have to do something with a tool you don’t know
You hate it instantly
Turns out this tool is driving you mad
You spend 2 weeks fixing this particular tool and learning trough pain
You finally made it work
Congrats, now you are a specialist on something you hate.

Client it is. Triggering people who get triggered by their public posts being public will come another day.
Client will be:
1) PyQt5. Cross platform. No Electron.
2) tabbed, QTreeView. Very high density. Should be unique. Meant for power users.
3) multiple accounts, of course!
4) Open a unified timeline, individual timelines, instances' public timelines, in tabs
5) Tor support, per-account
6) User agent can be changed, so nobody can punish you for using r000t's software
PSA: Windows 7 end of support means: Scavenge all the 'old' computers! It be raining computing devices (prolly also a lot of data because newbs) which can be transformed with a single USB to a fully fledged linux workstation! i3-i5 intels for the grabs, if you're lucky i7!
Think: Companies, Libraries, Schools and Most of all Government institutes (they prolly be dumping their XP boxes and having a hard day finding out that their new integrated systems now function on 7 and need 5 years + millions to get to run on 10)
Free!!!! OEH! and if you're really lucky, they be thinking that they need new monitors too, because of win10
People who obsess over software licenses: have you seen this new "non-violent" public license?
I have a question: If someone uses this license for software that includes GPL'd code, isn't that a violation of the GPL? This license puts arbitrary restrictions on what the software can be used for, which, seemingly, simultaneously violates Freedoms 0, 2 and 3
Seems like, if an NPL'd piece of software is used by, say, a defense contractor, and there's a suit, author loses

Different take on resolutions:
Don't wait for a new year to make a change you want to see. Change yourself now if you want to make an improvement. Go for incremental improvements that add up, no need to do all the things in a major version update.
I don't do resolutions because I don't need a calendar day to make an excuse to get off my butt and improve something.
Ironically, though, it'll probably still be faster to buy it from "my guy" for at least a few weeks.
Someone write me a bot which posts this link hourly until the complexity epidemic is over
Then all software developers see nothing but this until they fix their fucking shit
I am very happy that I can now buy known-to-be-good, laboratory tested, fully auditable, and **reliable** cannabis from a store, that has set hours, and set prices.
It's very difficult to treat a medical condition of any kind with product that changes each time you buy it, you know nothing about chemically, and have to negotiate a location to buy it over a period of hours.
