i love to both ingest, AND excrete
i did once but i had to throw it out. the stench was unbearable
really makes u think...
this is a good change, and if there's any pigheaded reactionary programmer types complaining about it you can also point out that it's shorter and every Real Developer™ hates typing.
also SVN used "trunk" by default if i remember correctly, and that was also a better, older name that dates back to the orignal Concurrent Versions System that predates bitkeeper by quite a while.
it absolutely sucks and is incredibly scary. unfortunately i think it's also the case that the only way to decouple everyone's ability to put breakfast on the table from the mechanisms of capital flows is to go through some crisis like this in which the failings of tying the two together are made abundantly clear. which, i think they are now. we just have to demonstrate this to enough people to change it. and unfortunately the consumerist mindset and culture here in the US at least renders this dependency invisible to most people, or if they do see it, they feel like it's a "natural" phenomenon rather than something invented by people that we could decide to change.
it's also the case that most (but not all) js libraries and frameworks are written without much regard for mutable state - which makes sense given that the original context for the language is inside the browser, where the Document Object Model basically treats the entire content of a web page as a giant global variable that can be accessed and mutated from anywhere in your program. this can make large js applications, even those not running in a browser, very difficult to debug when something goes wrong.
it also lacks good language-level primitives for concurrency compared to some other languages, which is something that is becoming increasingly important as CPU clock speeds aren't really going to be getting much faster anymore, and program authors need to spend more time making sure they're making good use of all the CPU cores available. i spend most of my programming time writing code that targets the erlang VM, and the lack of a first-class primitive datatype to represent processes/threads is the feature i miss most of all when working in JS.

this is 100% true it's getting too hot to dress like a shapeless void now and i'm already tired of it

my all-time favorite web framework is actually phoenix, which is written in a newer language called elixir that runs on the erlang VM. this is a slightly more esoteric choice, but it's far from unproven technology (it is used at many companies you have probably heard of), and phoenix has a lot of nice features that i now miss any time i go back to the other choices i've listed here.

already been seeing the "anyone who won't vote for biden is a fake leftist white man" takes circulating everywhere and i don't think i've ever been more interested in buying a flamethrower weed burner from tractor supply
