Okay folks… I know it's extremely hot inside of a Battlemech, but why don't I see male pilots parading around in their underwear? Don't get me started on how Natasha Kerensky has been portrayed sometimes.

Going through a lot of the stuff I don't need anymore and putting it on eBay. Just to declutter everything before the move. Probably a better idea than throwing it away.

Hm, ilClan Era. Yay or Nay? It's set 100 years after the era I mostly played in and it looks like they are finally leaving the Dark Age Era behind. /cc @toni

After watching so many Batman movies… I really wonder what became of his parents.

Longing for the day when "crypto" means "cryptography" again.

I've seen the discussed video a couple of years ago and really wanted to know how wrong all of this is. Surprisingly some of the stuff that I thought was wrong wasn't and the other way around. youtube.com/watch?v=ISbQgkpwCG

poking fun of fossbro entitlement with music as an analogy 

"So, you don't like corporate music? Well, here's how you build an instrument from scratch! It's easy, I've done it before!"

"What do you mean, the wood costs money? Of course it does! And you better pick a good one or the performance will be crappy."

"You can't play an instrument? And you can't sing!? Are you serious! *everybody* can do this! Well, you better start practicing now!"

"You messed up your project? Haha, N00b."

Apparently has retconned the significantly shorter lifespan of Orcs. I certainly approve of that. Really made me kind of uncomfortable.

I guess what throws me off here is the unexpected special syntax for this (`is` operator in the type signature). In we sometimes do stuff like this with GADTs but the type trickery is much more hidden since it seamlessly integrates with case-expressions.

I just stumbled across the `is` operator where you can use a predicate (not in the DT sense) to communicate a type to the type checker based on a boolean value.
`a.filter((x): x is number => typeof x === 'number')`.

Not dunking on the language, it's one heck of an achievement but that type system feels a lot harder to navigate. At least to me.
