Somehow when I was making a Spam emoji for Discord it became my desktop wallpaper.

This must be some form of punishment.

So I was looking at Bose's website and looking at the "home theater" section and it looks like the receiver thingy doesn't seem to have real inputs. Only claims to support Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

@ben You know how your website would really mess up my phone?

I found another one that does that.

I've started reading the dragon book, it's very interesting so far.

Here's a fun question:

How do you handle adding or removing fields from an object during runtime? 🤔

I swear there was a tutorial that went over creating a simple scripting language that started with making a basic lexer/ast/runtime in Java and then went to making a basic JIT in C.

I can't seem to find it right now.

I just found something really cool in FireFox.

You can ctrl+click multiple tabs and move them all at the same time!

Anyone know a good way to get cheap compute? I looked up some of those old weird Nvidia mining cards and they are still like $150+ a piece.

Also, periodic reminder that Windows 7 and iOS 6 were pretty much peak GUI design

Right before the GUI world was flattened and scroll bars were suddenly uncool.

Anyone know a good way to make my music library have the same loudness?

(I don't mean bringing up the quiet parts of songs)

me coding: "hahaha! yess! this is awesome!!!"

me debugging: "oh. oh no. what is this, oh no."

C++ Help? 

What is the C++ version this Java code:

String string = ...;
String[] split = string.split("/");

C Help? 

I have something like this to detect if any bits are set:

bool empty = true;
size_t* buffer = ...;
for(int i = 0; i < 4096 / sizeof(size_t); i++){
empty = false;

And someone is telling me to use char* instead, I don't see what difference this will make except to be slower.

Any ideas?

Which one is more iconic?

Boosts appreciated.

Part of me wants my own instance so I can just have some stupid limits for the rare post that I want to make that needs a big block of text.

Does anyone know what might cause a fifo to block on open?

I created the fifo with mkfifo.

I have tried:
- mkfifo(path, 0600)
- mkfifo(path, 0666)
- open(path, O_CREAT | O_WRONLY)
- open(path O_WRONLY)
