I have a hard disk platter that I use as a drink coaster. I think that's one of the most important things about me. Magic non-believer.

Looking forward to it if you do :). I found this series purely by chance, and I was like "I remember _someone_ talking about it fondly before." Lucky guess :P?

Tyvm :). I found the relevant blog post, looks like I found a good fun series (and I was hoping you had written about it). Is the live lecture posted anywhere online?

Wonder if Paint Dot NET or Pillow (Python) supports it; I can't really test right now :P.

more things i forgot about: far pointers. i'm so spoiled by the flat 32-bit memory model of the ARM microcontrollers.

Hi! I saw a few tweets/did a quick Google search, but didn't see anything specific; have you done any writing on the 60's Princess Knight? Watching the first episode on a lark- it's really fun!

Y'all ever think about how hiding vulnerability and isolating yourself from the group during times of sickness is a basic mammalian instinct? Anyway please help me defy nature

I don't get this. Aren't both "auto" and "and" reserved words and the compiler should complain about using a keyword as a variable name?

Maybe we should do lossy executable compression next! That's a totally untapped niche and really, how important can it possibly be to get these instruction bytes exactly right?

Let's say you have 10 apples, someone takes some, and now 6 remain. How many apples were taken? Algebra can express this equation as 10-A=6, which can be reduced to A=4.

What is the "oranges and apples" stage of algebra? I remember learning counting using fruits, but I don't remember ever doing algebra with them :P. Sounds fun!

How does a dynamic language prevent this problem of unimplemented interfaces? Wouldn't you just die w/ an error at runtime if a type is missing an interface, as opposed to compile error for static (or worse, your type impls one interface but is actually supposed to impl another)
