i think my core problem is that i don’t actually like things anymore
i’d rather try out the wh40k roleplay stuff these days than pretend to be a contemporary vampire in an ideologically interesting way
why is internet explorer so bad
i mean i assume that their’s a reason beyond “they did a bad job”, is it something to do with trying to be low maintanence or ease of use or what
people still treating internet explorer as the objectivley inferior lamestream browser reminds me of when “alternative rock” became more popular than “mainstream rock”
dont get me wrong chrome and firefox dont exactly fill me with great passion
its just odd to me that microsoft seems averse to making their inbox browser palatable
i obv don’t use ie on my linux computer but for a while i’ve been reading that modern ie is doing pretty well and the worst complaint that most people had is that a lot of users would be unable to upgrade from really old ie versions, so i’m vaguely surprised + unironically curious what the modern ie experience is like :v
i guess that all i read is more from the “does my shitty html5+webgl page render properly on ie” perspective than actual user experience
removing the visual separation between client area and window decoration sure looks sleek but i keep clicking on the wrong bits now and suddenly firefox is in the background instead of manipulating tabs
i can’t believe Big Government is saying there is a public interest in ensuring a water supply!!!
i was gonna express surprise that some lone dude’s rain collection pet project can affect the water supply so i actually read the article and welp
Despite withdrawal of the permits, Harrington kept on defiantly collectin’ under the belief that the laws did not apply to his situation, adamant that the water was coming strictly from rain and snow melt and not from tributaries flowing into the Big Butte River
i bought the space marine game on steam and so far i’m enjoying it a whole lot more than that old rts. welp
to be honest anything is better than asm
basically yes. i can’t wait to be done with this bullshit. i get that understand the underlying architecture and having a feel for computer design is supposed to be useful but god damn do i hope i never have to use any of this bullshit again
I don’t I’ve ever heard of asm programmers outside of academia or legacy code for banks (flee from both)
I think the key thing is definitely to take away lessons which can be applied to any language. asm probably isn’t the best what I consider important (separation of concerns, testing, data structures/OOP) but it is good for the fundamentals found in nearly all languages (loops, conditionals, algorthim design, etc.) I guess?
I wish I knew enough assembly to make sense of the assembly output by my compilers or debuggers :|
(it doesn’t help that the very first thing the game teaches you, apparently, is to never explore anything in your environment in a game entirely about exploring things in your environment)
I wish games actually let me choose whether I care about exploring the environment, instead of either punishing me for not finding all the hidden macguffins or punishing me for dashing right to the boss or w/e
with a scathing “do not recommend” review i have avenged myself after the game’s tutorial fight scene totally owned me
- Douchebag “Ben” dismissively rejects commit that replaces documentation pronouns “he” with gender-neutral “them”.
- Commit is then merged.
- "Ben" re-appears, reverts the commit (linked) and childishly tells off the person responsible
- Commit is then re-merged after two more contributors and a lead developer respond positively to the community backlash
The thread I linked to is an enlightening read. Apparently there are quite a few people worth avoiding on GitHub who are unafraid to out themselves as sexist bigots on what is effectively the most important part of a programmer’s CV these days.
Ruminate on that for a moment, then tell me whether we have any problems with diversity in tech…
Bonus points for joyent tho: http://www.joyent.com/blog/the-power-of-a-pronoun
Also don’t forget the backlash on hn as well as http://antirez.com/news/64
