TIL: flotsam is floating debris on the sea, jetsam is stuff in the sea that has intentionally been thrown (jettisoned) overboard.

Will start streaming the lost Monkey Island sequel at the top o’ the hour: Tales of Monkey Island - Episode 1: Launch of the Screaming Narwhal.

Cursey with a Chance of Monkeys!

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

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 <_<

OH: You made a backup first, right? — Kind of.

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?
