Please boost

Trying to do research into the C++ community shit that's happening right now and holy shit the reddit for cpp is full of people who are just like "they served their time for their rape so they should be fine participating in a leadership role." and "I don't care about somebody's past I just care about C++".

I hate tech bros.

Firing up the Xbox 360 tonight... Does this count as retro gaming now?

I've been learning @godotengine@Twitter lately, and re-implementing my Löve2D/PyGame experiments (little demos). You can see the first 20 (or more, depending on when you read this) here: github.com/Taffer/godot-experi

Users: <ignore my emails telling them to do things>

Also users: I can't access my encrypted disk after replacing the motherboard, I didn't save the recovery key, and I don't have backups. Fix it!

Apparently Visual Studio needs a *34 page* document to explain its licensing: visualstudio.microsoft.com/wp- And we still had to ask someone for help understanding it.

Turns out, the M1 Mac mini was going to sleep because the screen was off. While trying to build code and run tests. After fixing the power settings, it's going nice and fast.

I don't know what it is, but the M1 Mac mini is slow as hell when using it as a GitLab CI Runner. Takes ages to pick up tasks, takes ages to run them... and I'm only using it for native tasks.
