What I really want to see is a model where the local software is like a VR web browser, only it loads virtual spaces instead of websites - and the virtual spaces live on servers in the form of a plaintext something-or-other on par with HTML - or at least some kind of easily-modifiable open format - so that anyone can make their own VR spaces that are browser-agnostic.
Maybe somebody out there is already working on this?
The hard part is, how the heck do you handle multiple people interacting in the same space? The actual Web wasn't really built for that sort of thing and doesn't have a good general solution to copy...
this is how i learned that apparently golang has THREE infinities: +inf, -inf, and .... neutral inf!
follow-up: the toml compliance test also had several basic coding errors ... i'm not convinced anyone actually tried to run these. i patched it enough to actually compare the expected outputs. i'll probably submit that to them as a PR when i'm done, in case anyone else is still looking at it.
i found the json test suite over in a different repo (burntsushi) and patched a few that were ambiguous, tho i patched them for python (the tests were written for golang) so there's no point making a PR
there's a toml compliance tester but... they forgot to check in the actual test files 😂
A wizard appears. He looks grumpy.
