Friend says "Yeah" and then burps several times, which sounds a bit like more words

Me: Did you forget to null-terminate the string

Preferred development method: waterfall method, except the waterfall is the M. C. Escher one

absolutely fabulous tool, lets you follow lists of people on a given topic on mastodon


oh my GOD

tired: returning multiple values from a function via data structures
wired: returning a comma-separated string, then using a regex to unpack it in the code performing the call

just tried tootdon (after subway tooter) and found it not very usable for some reason - like the search isn't unified and I found searching by handle to be impossible somehow

wtf ASDF movie 11 came out this week

tfw you discover that you live across the street from a pokestop

To all the P!atD scholars out there, can "Pray for the Wicked" be considered to be in the jazz genre? Or is that a stretch

- I have a certain website that spams me all the time that I have an account on
- so, having received zero emails of interest for a year, I got pissed and set a filter on gmail to insta-archive all emails from that website
- fast forward to yesterday: I logged in on a new device, and it sent me a verification email
- and I didn't get one
- and I couldn't figure out why
- Even contacted their customer support; of course the response got archived too

I shouldn't be allowed anywhere near technology

I was just browsing Wikipedia when I opened "List of educational programming languages".

The first subsection, under "Learning paths", was "Assembly language"

Educational?! I think not
