Swift and Go. Love 'em both. They make me mad in completely different ways. Infosec as required.

This article raises important questions, but never mentions telecommuting or decentralizing work. Building a huge office park or factory are not the only way to employ people in an area. There is a lot of policy potential for encouraging more distributed workforces.

Seriously getting ticked off with Google’s reCaptcha. I am not a fucking robot. They’re aggressive and annoying and I am so fucking sick of clicking on fire hydrants and traffic lights.

This was totally me as a Perl dev. It’s addictive. Not just fewer lines. You start counting characters. I once wrote an 11 line comment explaining what one line of code was doing. I rewrote it as 5 lines that didn’t need comments and that’s when I finally turned the corner.

My biggest fear of creating a time machine might be the date math.

Sometime between the system beep and the drive whir the first time I heard an Apple ][+ boot. By the time I’d written my first GOTO 10, I was hooked.

OPINION. The Wake school system continues to serve this county well. Breaking it up would be a huge mistake.

So good. I grew up on those. Always made them with Bisquick. Now I’m hungry…

That’s just the situation I was thinking of when I mentioned Unicode identifiers.

…QuickBASIC, Fortran, SL/1, COBOL, Ada, Lisp… Case sensitivity was a silly thing to add to languages and a step backwards for programmers, adding new subtle bugs for little benefit…until Unicode symbols, which is much more practical in a case-sensitive language IMO.

They have the same constraints, but may not be the same type.

I get all fanatical about not having duplicate files, notes, etc. My body has a complete copy of my DNA in every cell. Maybe I should chill out, clearly the universe doesn’t care that much about DRY.

J makes biscuits constantly. When I told her about Northerns hunting for White Lily, she looked at me like I was crazy. "It's just the protein; use cake flour." (I have no opinion; just passing along the words of an expert.)

Just wanted to say thanks to . I just canceled my account for a little while; just busy with other things. I was bracing for a hassle, but they made canceling and reactivating easy, and that makes me trust them a whole lot more. I won't hesitate to come back soon. 💯

The antithesis of responsible AI claims: “We made sure to train our AI model to be completely ethical and not biased,” Parsa says. When you hear that, run.

If you do not support this SE, you have rejected all that is right in Swift. Couple with my SE-789, “Replace .forEach with compiler poking you in the ribs asking ‘really? Srsly?’” One or the other, people. You have to choose.

Finished Spider-Man. Loved the swinging. The plot…meh. Dang it, I’m going to have to play RDR2 to get a decent storyline aren’t I? Trying out Breath of the Wild, but not doing it. My wife says it’s because I never played other Zelda games. She loves it.
