Holy shit I forgot how *fast* #Amaroq is.
Yeah, this is *ever* so useful and legible.
How the *hell* can this be worth any money at all? There is no QA, and there is bug after bug after bad behavior after bug. I wish I could sell things like this, but I consider it to be dead fucking wrong to sell a product that is so far from finished.
Someone wanna tell me what the fuck I am missing, here? I thought programmers were supposed to get better over time and stop making newbie mistakes. But it’s like we’re in the age of the lazydev.
An interesting read.
What’s driving the renewed push for XMPP? It had its fifteen minutes, a decade or so ago.
One cannot both claim that hash proofs are wasteful and at the same time push a text-based markup language for interchange without looking a little stupid.
A binary message is often 90% smaller than the equivalent XML, requires less code to parse, is more deterministic, and so uses less electricity to create, transmit, and parse. Multiply by several billion times and wow. C’mon people. We can do better.
It’d be humane to kill me if I were a suffering snake. But I’m not, I’m human, so its “immoral”.
Fuck this world and its double standards.
Seriously: it has been common knowledge since AT LEAST a decade before *I* was born that you do not use telnet to talk to things that, well, aren’t. Yet I have seen no fewer than 5 toots here, in June of TWENTY FRICKIN NINETEEN that say this is a great idea.
I guess people don’t care to read the specs? They like working by happenstance?
Use a damned TCP client, FFS. The reasons why are nearly 50 years old! Not rocket science, people.
Yes, we need to defend ourselves. The government is on a crusade, one which only hurts its people and makes it the enemy of the public. What a fucked up world we live in. But people wish to turn the other way, buy the bullshit line that guns are the problem, and continue to belive that cops are good.
Nothing from the government is good, k?
I am *really* liking Ultimate++. The design of the system is sound, and aside from the learning curve WRT the tooling, I'm extremely happy with it.
#TheIDE is *snappy*, but it still needs a little help in the GUI designer and documentation areas. I'm finding that I'm looking at TheIDE's source to answer questions that I cannot easily find the answers to in the documentation, for example.
But I like it. No code gens, yet a visual development environment. A most efficient use of C++.
So, finished #Lucifer S4.
I'm not sure how I feel about it. Are they ending it there? Are they going to bring it back? If they bring it back, just what are they going to do with it?
Am I alone in thinking that they've painted themselves into a truly final corner?
I mean, they *finally* got to the point where Chloe and Lucifer know how they feel about each other, AND Chloe is okay with who he is, and THAT is where it ends?
Utter failure and lost cause, thanks to the marvels of modern medicine and society.
