Make no mistake: Im not being passed over because I suck; or dont know what im doing; or cant interview to save my life.

Which in my case is totally true, depending on who you ask.

I have over 2 years worth of nice words from white people about "how they've learned a lot from reading my code", or how my "thoughtful approach to software development [really] resonated" with them.

The problem is, is white people have a problem working with black people. I dunno why, you'll have to ask them -- or yourself -- why that's the case.

I'm at that point in my career where I've taken a job that isn't anywhere near software development, because after almost 2 years of trying to get back into the game, I've been hearing the exact same thing from the exact same types of white people.

So now comes the critical juncture: I can either bust my ass harder than ever to get back into the industry (which is gonna require little to no sleep and potentially jeopardizing my health): or, stay in Menial Job Limbo and accept the fact that white people dont want blacks in their industry.

Testing Tootle but especially the compose view is weird, no way to move it to see the message I'm replying to which is behind it because it moves the window behing with it. No way to publish with Ctrl+Enter or something like that, no way to search for usernames to mention someone. It's an alpha version, I guess I should create bug reports. But otherwise it's promissing and having a lightweight alternative to a browser or Electron app is really nice.

I have a Mi fittness band and yesterday I lost it somewhere and it was already dark outside. But I know that I can connect to it via Bluetooth and it inly has a limited range. So I walked where I was walking duting the day and tried to connect. It wasn't in the house so I went outside. In the ent I was able to triangulate it according to the speed of how fast I was able to download the data from it. It took some time in the dark but I found it and have it...

The annoying thing of watching most of YouTube in English is that they don't use the metric system for measurements and I can't get used to it and have to look up how much kg, m, etc. it is if I really want to know.
