This is my first status update on Functional.cafe 😃 I'll be geeking out about Lisp related rubbish & some IRL nonsense, so don't mind me, thank you.😕
Simply by chance I found this place.
My entire life I have had a memory from this place, standing by these trees, but I always thought "It must be from a dream, or even a vision of an afterlife, but this cannot be a place on Earth"
I asked my dad & he assured me he took me here when I was 4. You have no idea how much this means to me - I've been searching my entire life in hopes of finding this place again. It's just as calming & meditational now as it was then.
I’d just like to interject for a moment...
Can we get rid of timezones and just all use the same clock?
I wouldn't mind saying "I wake up at 3 AM and go to bed at 1:00 PM" or something weird like that.
That way there's no "It's YOUR time but it feels like MY time" when moving across timezones - every time is OUR time, the only difference is the local position of the sun.
Not that it's feasible. It would just be nice. 🕒
(Just thinking cause I laughed when my package shipped a few minutes ago tomorrow morning)
To edgelords everywhere:
Answering rhetorical questions does not make you sound smart. 👌
And also - putting the 👏 emoji between every word in a post like this is annoying.
When people ask "How come this GNU package doesn't run well on Windows?"
But then when it comes to proprietary software running on GNU they say "Well duh, it's not magic!"
"Plastic straws get stuck in the throats of baby turtles"
haha no the turtles are just using the straws to drink the water! 👌
"Describe yourself in three words."
Oh yeah, Youtube is down for me, too.
Centralized platforms are /so/ stable and trustworthy! 👍
Oh yeah. Happy birthday, me. 🥂🍰
I learn a lot just by hanging out with people who like pop culture.
So, the reason trends start is because teenage ghosts are fighting in the ghost world, and depending on the weapon they use, different trends will pop up.
Yes that makes sense! (That's a mechanic in a game called something like "World Ends With You" and it's pretty hilarious)
If I ever work in sales I'll change my name to something like:
What's a good functional programming language to start with?
Hey, that new Assassin's Creed game looks good!👍
Happy Canadian thanksgiving!
I write code in Lisp, I live in Canada.
Currently very interested in GNU Hurd
