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?
It’s a shame that access to medicine is considered something that should be a basic right to group “X”, and not, you know, to all of those who live and breathe.
It actually kinda sickens me that we live in a world where it is easier to get insurance to pay for elective, even cosmetic procedures, but some of us can’t affordably do so or the insurance just won’t pay without a fight, just to keep chronic conditions—which have a real chance at lifespan reduction—at bay.
Talk about “privilege”.
#Bitcoin node is experiencing difficulty.
Gonna need to figure that out at some point today. Kinda hard to test an API client when the server's responding "I'm busy, leave me be."
What an dingbat server #bitcoind can be. Are there any other well-known, locally-running, full-node implementations available which present an API? And can ideally use bitcoind's data as a starting point?
Was there some reason that #Tor could not have fixed things, instead of making them worse with v3 names?
There is now quite virtually no chance for memorable names. Not intentionally, anyway. They’re simply too long.
Is it time to rethink the #onion overlay, to try to bring usability and high-security together?
The State Motto of #Georgia should be "Georgia: Taking rights away one law at a time."
What a backwards state I live in.
Same passes a law requiring #recess, because we're retarded and need such a thing.
Governor signs the first, vetoes the second.
How is it that #humanrights are still a thing being actively denied, here, in 2019, by law, in (admittedly one of the worst) a US state?
Bill Nye: "The planet's on fscking fire!"
"The planet's on fucking fire!"
For example, a simple, standard availability domain requires a minimum of two servers, both running DNS, SMTP, HTTP, and possibly XMPP. Add SIP and that’s one more server. Make it high-availability, then double the number of servers.
So a minimum cost/mo is something like $10–$30 per month, and that’s assuming self-administration. Add in the administrator’s time, and it goes up quite a bit.
At scale things become cheap and people love gratis, and so they think anything at-cost is too much.
Whenever I hear someone complain about a #gratis service, I wonder if they'd actually pay the amount the service costs to use it.
I think the answer is most often no.
I have missed so much stuff just due to being stuck at home. I need to take advantage of my limited supply of pain-free time to try to finish my product so that I can hopefully sell it and make enough to be able to afford to remain pain free.
I don’t want to go back to pain. I remember when pain free was normal and I thought nothing of it. Now I appreciate every pain-free minute I can, and having been reintroduced to a pain-free state... I desperately want to hold on to it. Desperately.
YAYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!! #Lucifer comes back May 8!!
Utter failure and lost cause, thanks to the marvels of modern medicine and society.
