Funny how a century is actually defined by the time it takes for Earth to revolve around the Sun times your number of fingers squared

Reminder that storage isn't free. When you post a video/gif on Mastodon/Pleroma/..., your instance stores it forever (unless you delete it).
Also, when you follow an account, your instance will store the media of this account for some time (eg. weeks). For example, following @noisemakerbot may take a few GB on your own instance.

You may not pay it yourself, but your instance admin(s) do.

The only valid orientations are: big spoon, small spoon, both at once, switch, and none.

@GeoffreyFrogeye "as if the flow is splitting and then merging again on sync point"
Except it splits and merges multiple times per function. And sometimes merges after the function returns. That's the main selling point of Trio, keeping this under control.

"Maybe it’s a thing that you get used to?"
Doesn't mean it's good.

@gordon It's a bit less nice with Ansible because when you double-click the module's name, it also selects "_module"

@GeoffreyFrogeye The whole asynchronous programming.
Yes the context is preserved, but the flow is hard to follow.

In "normal" programming, you have one call stack per thread; a call pushes a frame and a return pops one.
New call stacks (threads) are created rarely.
With async programming, stacks come and go multiple times per function, and when a function returns the stacks it spawned are still alive.
(Trio fixes the latter point though)
