Though it looks pretty, the LED kit itself is not good. It runs on batteries which are empty now, even though the LEDs were turned off. I'll probably connect it to a different power source when i finish the other buildings in the series.

I fear the type of magic we programmers employ has warped us.

The first thing we learn, in speaking to the machines, is that every syntactic detail matters. A misplaced semicolon is hell. A stray parenthesis can kill your code.

The second thing we learn, is that names are free parameters, to the computer meaningless. Call it Bob, call it Index, so long as you always call it the same thing. Call an integer StringOfLetters and it will be an integer all the same.

It is no wonder a coarse branch of internet 'humor' consistents in claiming all the ways humans ascribe meaning to words are a weakness they should be mocked for, and doing so in ritualized syntactic formats.

Auf dem Weg zur Stadt die es nicht gibt. Freue mich auf die Lesung heute Abend im historischen Saal der VHS . Der Eintritt ist frei - kommt vorbei 🤗

"Satire is meant to ridicule power. If your are laughing at people who are hurting, it's not satire, it's bullying."

Terry Pratchett

"La satire a pour but de ridiculiser le pouvoir. Si vous vous moquez des gens qui sont déjà blessés, ce n'est pas de la satire, c'est du harcèlement."

I hate Google for effectively destroying the ability to self host an email server. You simply can't anymore. I mean, feel free to try, but be prepared to have half of your outbound messages dropped or rejected. And that's AFTER setting up SPF, DKIM, and DMARC.

Jerks on the internet: *Are jerks*

Normal people: No that's not okay to do

Jerks: Lol but there's no rule that says I can't

Normal people: *Start making codes of conduct; enforcing them*

Jerks: Umm have you considered that maybe you're the real jerk here?

Tradition is just peer pressure from dead people.
