ncurses is weird 

ncurses is weird 

and here we go: the real reason for it and entirely not about protecting the integrity of anything but his own shit

@saana TIL the mastodon web app will just send a reply anyway if the original post was deleted

@luna hahahahaha

prepare for cursed

this took me literally a week of intense hyperfocus and git bisecting to find the minimal set of git commits and patches which would allow to recreate Crystal's bootstrap chain from source. There exists commits which build compilers *which work fine but themselves build broken compilers*, meaning when your compiler segfaults sometimes you have to metabisect to get a compiler which builds compilers which can build compilers

WP just threw at me that lambdas are not supported yet. How the hell am i supposed to use \numof ?!

Birdsite link, thread on Google's shady practices about open source work by employees (IP theft?) 

I wish everybody knew about

when "hey you should read article! [link]" leads you to some hideous monstrosity of popups, autoplaying videos, and begging for/demanding money to read the damn text, you can instead:

1. copy the URL
2. paste it into the box
3. enjoy reading the actual text
4. (optional) say "not today, Satan"

sometimes it doesn't work, for some mysterious, unexplained reason. sometimes chokes on NYT articles, for example, but other times if I close the tab it's in, open an new tab, and try pasting the url again, it works, so.

anyway yeah! spread the news!

do you miss the experience of twitter where your Likes would randomly show up in other people's streams? even though if you wanted them to see them you'd have retweeted them?

well miss no more! i've written a mastodon bot that will automatically boost a random post that you liked, but haven't boosted! now everyone can see the weird hentai you're into

On my old Cyanogenmod that I don't bother to fix, is my go-to camera app

i was worried that an english-titled 1h44m technical presentation will be in german bc youtube auto-generated only german subtitles… but it was just the speaker having a *very* strong accent
