Doctor: I'm terribly sorry but the tests are back. Your child is artistic.

Parents: (sob)

Doctor: Now don't worry, it's not the end of the world. Your child will never have the mind of an executive, but with modern innovations like Etsy, Patreon and Kickstarter, they may be able to pay rent well into their mid-20s.

Parent: Did... did crayons do this

Doctor: Who can say? We're exposed to so many forms of art every day: music, poetry, language, geometry..

Parent: We're getting crayons BANNED

Idea: C++, but the template metaprogramming and static introspection are formalized by dependent type theory

@amiloradovsky It's more like an alternative standard library. With its own implementations of tactics and a different way of going about things than in traditional Coq.

That's ssreflect, though, so I don't know if that fulfill your requirement of being "Coq".

"Another way of thinking about this is that if a company can only stay in business by externalizing the cost of security, maybe it shouldn’t stay in business. Those companies don’t ask the public to pay their employees’ salaries, so why should we have to pay for their security failures? It’s like a factory that can only stay in business by illegally polluting; we’d all be better off if we closed it down."

Is there a library for vector/module arithmetic, say, over Z? Addition/subtraction, multiplication by scalar, multiplication with a "table", and so forth.
I (hopefully) have a rudimentary version, based on the "recursion principles" for vectors (rect, rect2), but implementing it is… a good exercise…

Decided to try something different and have zero state in my elm web app. No cookies. API key is passed as a querystring to pages that need it.

Feels cleaner this way. No sessions/logging in all the time. Can just bookmark any page and it just works.

There is package manager in , but portage is absent from nixpkgs. How come?

There are only two mysteries: time and sleep. Everything else is just noise.

I wish google spent at least half as much effort on preventing spam being sent from their servers as they do on spam boxing self-hosted email providers...
