clang: warning: using sysroot for ‘iPhoneOS’ but targeting ‘MacOSX’ [-Wincompatible-sysroot]

when building for macOS? (This is with CMake, in case that helps anyone)

Hallo Münchener und Ex-Münchener! Weiss wer von Euch, ob es hier irgendwo gutes japanisches Curry gibt? Also ein Restaurant, das Ihr empfehlen könnt?

You are in a maze of twisty little branches, all alike…

Space Invaders was the first cover-based shooter don't at me

Click to „update in an hour“, expecting I‘ll be asked again. An hour later, Mac suddenly restarts.

What is this, Windows Vista?!

Ich verstehe nicht, warum man Dinge ins Schaufenster stellen würde, die man nicht kaufen kann…?
Bei einer Schneiderei vielleicht, aber dann würde man DAS ja dranschreiben, oder?

Why do comics makers feel the need to turn one character into another? Give Jane Foster her own name. No need to make her Valkyrie in the comics. We had a perfectly fine Valkyrie already!

I hear people complaining about complexity in Swift …

I’ve seen 2 kinds of languages:
1. Complex ones
2. Simple ones with complex behaviors tacked on using add-on libraries or conventions to make them useful

I think Swift is coping pretty well with the demands, overall.

Have decided I’ll try to hold out buying my next MacBook until USB 4 hits. Given the “12in MacBook nothing” is dead and I’d get a clunkier one anyway, I should get more out of it if I don’t get the last model of the USB 3 generation.

One of these days I’ll get around to filing a bug to make each OpaquePointer its own distinct type in Swift so I can’t accidentally pass the wrong thing into a function <_<

So apparently I can’t read the clock and went home from work an hour earlier than intended <_<

I want to add new parameters to functions at compile-time, not at runtime. I.e. in my library have

func foo(name: String)

then in a later release add a parameter

func foo(name: String, age: Int = 0)

and have it auto-generate

func foo(name: String) { foo(name: name, age: 0) }

Would be nice for API design if prog. languages let you add a parameter to a function in a binary stable way. I.e. right now you always need to define an adapter with the signature of the old version that calls the new version to ensure linkage is correct. Y U no autogenerate?

Some Asshole: humans are just naturally inclined to selfish behavior because of evolution

Humans: *form social bonds with strangers*
Humans: *form social bonds with animals*
Humans: *form social bonds with plants*
Humans: *form social bonds with robots*

Does it make sense to allow division by zero in a programming language?

In a general purpose language? Probably not. When dealing with aspect ratios? Maybe.

It’s common to have a pane collapse to 0 on one side, and a sensible behavior is the constrained box to also be 0x0.

Whoever invented orange juice: You’re awesome.

Let me know if you come up with anything else, I’m sure it’ll rock.
