I am getting real tired of for some reason humans being obsessed with sticking microcontrollers in literally everything

No a microwave doesn't need a damn microcontroller, it needs two knobs connected to potentiometers or rotary encoders to set the time and power

And a fridge needs a temperature dial and that's it, just use a piece of paper or the mini computer people carry everywhere to manage a shopping list like the rest of us, techbros

Well, besides having to change HTTP servers twice, setting up Synapse is quite painless. Let's hope setting up a Discord bridge is just as easy.

I'm fed up with Discord. This weekend I am going to set up Matrix.

Today's mood 

Getting progressively angrier as I read more of the code I'll be replacing soon.

My pace this week has been so fast that my colleagues seem not to have the time to review my code. Hoping there aren't consequences for that.

everyone says that low level programming is scary but they always leave out the part about how fun it is

it is scary, and fun, in a scary way
the exciting and happy feeling of making something work And knowing why and how it works is so so good
