PB: I'm playing tech trainer this week and omg hard agree.
More imperialist software embarrassment:
a) "Sorry, you'll need a way to import this data from Excel files not CSVs, because the moment you save it as a CSV Excel will reliably turn 'Miragoâne' into mojibake"
b) Intellectually I understood the problem with the "master/slave" terminology in databases, but I'd never before felt the utter shame of watching descendants of slaves run into it. And not blink because they're used to it, but why should they be used to their tools insulting them?
@eldang my work implemented a change that used master/slave, and when my team worked on upgrading it a few years later we requested it be changed to primary/secondary in documentation and the system and one piece of feedback i got was “oh, you’re no fun, are you?” i was so mad!!
