job 

new job started today with a smaller IT firm. feels good to be assigned to smaller contracts. i feel as if i have more impact. i am eager for experience. my "career" is only 3 years old. too young perhaps to be jaded by capitalist evils? i need money! does this development platform even interest me? i think it is a good stepping stone. i am open to living an alternative lifestyle given room for failure. i need more patience. good to see merveilles often for inspiration. its the future.

Oh, I seemed to have found it under the 'refs' tab. New branches just don't show up in summary, tree, or logs tabs I suppose.

anyone know if sourcehut has some weirdness showing branches? I commited and pushed to remote a new branch but it is still showing JUST the master branch on sourcehut. Refreshed a few times after waiting a few minutes, but now I'm thinking I did something wrong..

Came across restofworld.org/ while browsing today. Human-centric tech news.
