Call For Papers deadline is March 31! Have anything you want to present at this summer’s @Perl and #RakuLang Conference?

We’re definitely looking for anything about #Rex, the friendly #OpenSource #automation framework for #DevOps implemented in #Perl. See this post:

"I'm pretty confident I can give them something good in 3 days. A week if I have some help."

teacher: what does “agnostic” mean?

me: I don’t know

teacher: correct! how about “ambivalent”?

me: *shrug*

I confess myself a bit baffled by people who act like "how to interact with ChatGPT" is a useful classroom skill. It's not a word processor or a spreadsheet; it doesn't have documented, well-defined, reproducible behaviors. No, it's not remotely analogous to a calculator. Calculators are built to be *right*, not to sound convincing. It's a bullshit fountain. Stop acting like you're a waterbender making emotive shapes by expressing your will in the medium of liquid bullshit. The lesson one needs about a bullshit fountain is *not to swim in it*.

Hmmm... papercss might actually be an awesome component library for a game app. ( for the svelte wrapper)

People who have bots spewing their trash to the slack channels meant for human communications and drowning signal to noise with a ratio > 10:1 deserve to be tasered right in the nasal cavity.
