‪It'd be fantastic if every chat platform out there could just steal Telegram's clients. At least performance and feature-wise. It's ridiculous how much better they are than everything else. If only Telegram were fully open source and end-to-end encrypted 🙄‬

TIL (thanks to HN) that I have a condition I didn't know exists, at least to some degree. How fun. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musical_

Linux now represents 100 percent of the supercomputer market, 90 percent of the cloud, 82 percent of the smartphone market and 62 percent of the embedded systems market.

My hypothesis is that AI's will never have to solve ethical dilemmas on their own. Instead that job will de delegated *live* to the poor souls being prompted by Google's next generation of captchas.

Client-side validation won't let me submit the form because the selected date is yesterday (it's currently 40 minutes after midnight). Choose today. Server-side validation errors after submission because the selected date is now in the future. Timezones are hard.

I've made a deliberate choice against a quoting feature because it inevitably adds toxicity to people's behaviours. You are tempted to quote when you should be replying, and so you speak at your audience instead of with the person you are talking to. It becomes performative. Even when doing it for "good" like ridiculing awful comments, you are giving awful comments more eyeballs that way. No quote toots. Thank's

Programming is great because you can just take that huge messy chuck from the middle of your function and hide it away under a new name in a new function and feel good about how you "cleaned up" the original function by abstracting the internals.

This is exactly how I used to clean my room as a kid - I'd refactor all the junk on the floor to be under my bed. Boom - problem solved.

I love Greg Heo’s walkthroughs of Swift compiler parts. This one is about the code generation for automatic Equatable conformances: swiftunboxed.com/internals/syn
