hell this comes from someone who's been using 6502 since 1987 (as if asm is "readable" at any paces ;o)
a(n intentional?) barrier to entry for me with programming languages like rust is that the readability is poor at 20 paces
or at least it's not very readable for someone who hasn't dealt with enough of C++ to rewrite Unreal Tournament in their sleep...
and this is coming from someone who's been using Perl since 2000
It's the computer equivalent to taking a picture of the screen, printing that out, and then FAXing it.
and last year's Xcode .xip is still unpacking on someone's Mac, somewhere
All the "M"s in the WORLD won't make the thing go faster. I wonder if Apple ran the equivalent of "pigz" on the thing, but using some super-duper secret computer the NSA rents time on
Clearly someone at Apple isn't feeling a major pain point, so they've marked it as WORKSFORME (so it must WORKFOREVERYONEELSE)
COVID-19 adj, uspol
I hope one thing we take away from this pandemic is that we start wearing masks and doing social distancing during flu season
Of course, since this is USA, where it's been baked into certain parts of the nation that being considerate of others is "un-American" or some bullshit, I have my doubts...
In keeping with the "frog being slowly boiled" thing, I can't remember when it stopped being OK to take others into consideration when you act.
I do not miss traveling
Commercial airline industry has poisoned the well. DHS/TSA have poisoned the well some more.
Commercial air travel was great in the 1980s, but that time is long over. I guess it was by happenstance, since airline deregulation happened in the 1970s and there's the usual lag before the shitty results present themselves
There was never a grace period for DHS/TSA; they immediately made bad shit WORSE.
really; that's what your password manager's "notes" section is for. Just make up a bunch of shit and write it into there.
