Dear friends, help me scour
Through the world of books
That I can then devour
In many cozy nooks,
At least one, every hour.
This is really just a pet peeve, since it's not a problem, but...
The "nl" command doesn't number empty lines by default. Is that kind of weird to anyone else?
We can work around this with:
nl -b a <file>
I'm just wondering why:
nl -b t <file>
is the default setting?
Isn't the POSIX definition of a line "something that ends with a newline character"?
So shouldn't "Number Lines" mean "Number *all* lines" *unless* you tell it not to"?
Amateurs vs. Professionals
Why is it that some people seem to be hugely successful and do so much, while the vast majority of us struggle to tread water?
The answer is complicated and likely multifaceted.
One aspect is mindset—specifically, the difference between amateurs and professionals.
Most of us are just amateurs.
What’s the difference? Actually, there are many differences:
Amateurs stop when they achieve something... (much more) https://bhh.sh/5jc
If I could reach out to myself & tell me something, it would be to make a friend. Not just someone to hack with, but someone to eat ice cream with. Someone to watch cartoons with, and share stories with.
Someone who feels comfortable showing me their cringey poetry, and is comfortable reading mine.
Hey, now, I'm going to sleep before tomorrow rolls in.
Sleep well, fediverse people in my general timezone!
#Godot doesn't have multi-monitor support. Good thing my computer is strong enough to run two Electron programs at the same time!
@MutoShack nobody can tackle all the problems at the same time by themselves, do remember that we all have eachother and we all care about some of the important issues
can the "apple cares about your privacy" meme please stop
their actions are not reflecting it at all, they're just doing some clever PR without any real technical or social change
they're not decentralizing anything, they're still forcing their proprietary app store and push notification system onto users (with all the boundless terribleness that entails)
they're not allowing rooting(well, jailbreaking) out of the box
they seem to have no intention to truly give their customers any control over their device and with that any semblance of privacy
(do not read this as "Android is better", because that isn't what i said, that's just a whole different can of terribleness)
Someone on here said something about "non-tech mailing lists"
I was talking a while ago about missing forum sites.
There's probably a reason this hasn't been done, but...
What if there was this forum-ish website software, where, instead of using your email to make an account, sending an email is the way you reply to a thread in a collection of "topics" (each "topic" is its own mailing list)
I'm a UNIX user from Alberta, Canada, and I'm a failing computer scientist who works in LISP and C.
Half of what you say will go over my head but I'll act like I have a solution.
