Is it just me, or is Gradle a really horrible tool?

Maybe it's just the documentation, but so far I've spent an hour or so simply trying to find out how to get one module to depend on another.

I have two Kotlin jvm modules, and all I want is that one of them depends on another.

I have been working on a new programming language. We've all been there right?

Mine is an APL at its core, with support for partial APL syntax. But I have some features tat should make it possible to work more easily with very large datasets, and various other changes that strays away from traditional APL in order to to be able to add new features, such as better parallelisation.

Some new information. I suspected some memory related issue, so I wrote a C program that allocated 32 GB of RAM, and wrote one byte to each page of memory.

This program reliably hard hangs the computerised once it reaches around 28 GB.

I'm currently running memtest86 but so far no errors.

I'm wondering if the problem is triggered once it hits swap? That's the next test.

So I got this new computer, but whenever I do something heacy in IntelliJ IDEA the entire machine freezes. I'm not even able to log in to it remotely.

I connected to it using ssh, and rand journalctl -f on it to see if it printed anything before it hung, but the last thing printed was some message regarding packagekit.

Any suggestions? It's a Ryzen 7 3700X CPU, 32 GB RAM and a Radeon 5700 XT. OS is Fedora.

Any debugging tips?


Hello there, I'm REZ.

I'm a demoscener since 1993, actually member of a group named RAZOR 1911 as coder.

I'm still living in the 80's, that's probably why I love so much big pixels and lowfi musics!

One of my latest work was a software 3D engine running on the lovely PICO-8 fantasy console:

I keep hearing media people talk about the self-driving car revolution. Things like "imagine a city built for people, not cars". Talk about getting rid of traffic, etc.

Explain to me: How will self-driving cars reduce traffic or the need for roads?

As far as I can tell, there will still be the same number of cars on the road, assuming people travel the same distance? And you might get even more traffic because some cars will now be driven by themselves with no people.

Blog post: Agda is difficult to use because it uses non-ASCII symbols in its language and it requires Emacs to use.

I've been looking at IPFS, and it's a pretty cool piece of technology. But, I'm still looking for a good use-case. Does anyone know of something interesting I can do with it?

@feld I care about people. They shouldn’t have to go through life like that.

I was very disappointed to see the results of a recent fediverse poll on vim vs emacs. 71% voted for vim, which means that 29% are either trolls are have closed head injuries...

I was interviewed about my @365-rfcs project for an internet numbers registry blog, which means this project was successful beyond my wildest expectations.

Is there a way to move away from SHA-1 in Git, since Since SHA-1 is now severely compromised?

Look at the networking guide in the documentation for Fedora 25:

Compare this to the horrible documentation in the more recent versions. They don't even have a networking guide anymore, and the docs they have is limited to how to install packages and a few other useless topics:

@loke I think you still need the $49.99 Elephant DLC Interop Office Pack
