functional programming, eh? well, here's the thing: it's much harder to make harmful mistakes in a programming language that doesn't function

No we are not. But we are all brothers and sisters.

They say AI is going to revolutionize the world, and yet Google still needs my help identifying fire hydrants on a daily basis.

I was reminded tonight how refreshing it is to write code for a project you want to do just because it's fun and interesting. No pressure, just enjoyment.

A close friend of one of my favorite bands, , was admitted to a hospital in late 2019 and came out more than three months later, having lost all of his limbs. The song "Say I Won't" tells his story.

He also has a $1 million GoFundMe to help cover his expenses. gofund.me/3741b44a

Personally, if I had that much in medical debt, I'd never be able to pay off such an astronomical amount. Anything you can give would be a blessing for him.

Just came across Vieb, a Chromium-based web browser with a Vim-like interface. Not a vim (or emacs) kind of guy, but if you're a heavy keyboard user, this is nothing short of amazing. Mouse not required!

Medium often features prominently in search engine content. For example, if I search for stuff related to elementary OS, top results are their stuff on their main blog followed by their older stuff on Medium. May be it's just me, IDK

Brought home a SonicWall TZ210 and discovered that messing with this thing isn't going to just be a project, it's going to be a misadventure. Yay?

Tried Coke with Coffee today, the vanilla variant. Coke is meh. Coffee is awesome. The combination? Less than meh. 😞

A switch has silently been flipped in millions of instances of Google Chrome: those browsers will begin sorting their users into groups based on behavior, then sharing group labels with third-party trackers and advertisers around the web. eff.org/deeplinks/2021/03/goog

#lessons for #resurrection #Sunday:

- If you don't talk about #death you will not die, right? You wish!
- So, let's talk about death (and what may come next).
- This man, Jesus, claims that he #resurrected from the dead and, more, that you may also be resurrected.
- Now you choose. As C. S. Lewis wrote, he is either a #liar, a #lunatic or #God.
- Can you honestly say that Jesus was incoherent or false? Then he probably is saying the #truth. Then, death is not the end.

People don't believe me that sometimes computers don't involve magic voodoo. I beg to differ. Example? This is from my recently-started config management tool port:

#.*|name:.*|description:.*|author:.*|tags:[\w\d]*|directives:|\"(?:\%\"|[^\"])*\"|\"[^\"]*\"|[^\s\"]+|[\S]+

Regular expressions even make functional programming look friendly to regular people. And, yes, I wrote and understand this.

Decided to rewrite a personal project in , a *simple* cross-platform configuration management tool. I've found that Go is deceptively simple: the rabbit hole goes *far* deeper than it appears at first. Here goes another adventure. :happycat:
