Why the "internal format" of strings isn't something that ia a user-configurable setting is beyond me. Seems like while 90% of systems are just fine using UTF-16, of those, 99% of them would be just fine with UTF-8. The rest of the world (where UTF-32 actually _saves_ space) would likely *love* that setting because then performance would be significantly increased over using any smaller wordsize for a character.

@strypey There needs to be a single notion of what an "identity" is, in the context of the Internet (I specifically did not say "web"). Kerberos offers part of the solution already. I was actually thinking about something similar, but for a different set of services.

Could elaborate on those thoughts later, I suppose.

I have ceased pain management due to kicking my abusive roommate out. I wish I would have met the person he got it from.

I always find it is more difficult when what is best for you is not as important as what everyone else thinks is best for you, which is often harmful.

In what world is it helpful to feed someone insecurity, unless you’re trying to hurt them...?

@lotus42 Kinda want to drink, myself... for wildly unhealthy reasons.

Would rather have someone to drink with tho. Ain’t got that.

Well, it is entirely possible that I'll be able to work within the context of another business.

This is assuming, of course, that this all happens before I'm evicted or otherwise lose my place to stay.

And I REALLY need to get my glasses replaced. I can barely read any damned thing anymore.

Oh, joy. A thunderstorm.

Well, it at least provides me a little time to bury myself into my own mind.


@gudenau Yep, plus now that Robinhood supports fractional units, one does not need a lot of money to begin investing.

The invite code is good for 24 hours only, IΒ think.

Additionally, Robinhood allows you to invest in various cryptocurrencies, including major ones (Bitcoin)Β and minor ones (Dogecoin).

Sadly, it doesn't support Stellar... yet.

Another way anyone can help me out is to sign up for Robinhood if you're interested in investing in the stock market.

If you use my invite code, both you and IΒ will receive a free stock. It could be a low-value stock, or it might be something like Apple, Ford, or Facebook (which are high-value stocks).

Boosts are welcome. Help me pay my while at the same time entering the stock market... it's a win/win deal. Especially if you're looking to start investing.

IΒ think the management is going to try to evict me RSN...

I've only been able to pay $300 on in the last... almost a month. (Thank you @bjonte!)

I'm on borrowed time.

IΒ can create/facelift Web sites.

IΒ can create software for desktops/smartphone/tablets.

IΒ can review existing sites/apps for security.

Really need something. Work from home is a must:Β I'm supposed to isolate per doc.

I'm literally *begging* for work, y'all. Please boost.

Got $100 so far... need a lot more if I’m not gonna get kicked out!

Also, if you know of a shitty web site that needs redone shoot the URL at me so I can try to get some work!

I wish I’d never been shown love, intimacy.

I wish I’d never fallen in love. It is too much pain when you inevitably get fucked.

In the first week of October, my wife and I renewed our vows to each other.

Two days before Thanksgiving, I left for what I understood to be a cool-off period after what turned out to be a medication-induced psychotic episode. Meds I were basically forced to go on lest I lose my wife in the first place.

Now, she says β€œ[She’s] moved on”.

Wait, what?

I feel abandoned. We were supposed to try counseling first.

It was my fault for falling in love in the first place.
