I was recently informed that many people interpret the “I identify as an attack helicopter” thing differently than I knew it, so checking, what do you think it makes fun of?

The options aren’t long enough, so:

  • All non-cis - it makes fun of all trans people and overall everyone that doesn’t identify with the gender they were assigned at birth.
  • otherkin/xenogender - the people identifying as ponies, turtles, fictional characters, etc

It’s always interesting to see how the IT space changes. I remember at most 10 years ago reading about the sufficiently smart compiler fallacy which was often used by fans of high level, interpreted languages such as Lisp or Python to justify their inherent performance issues. Because “the compilers are getting smart enough that with a sufficiently smart compiler all of these inefficiencies can be optimised away”.

Since then advancements in compiler technology and overall CS created JIT-compiled languages with optional/inferred typing like Julia or Rust which write and read high level but statically compile to very efficient code. It’s not quite the level of making Lisp or Python blazing-fast, but it’s close enough to make the sufficiently smart compiler not so much of a fallacy after all.

Hey Fedi, do you know if there is a federated (perhaps even #ActivityPub-powered) cooking recipe hosting service? If not, let's 👏 make 👏 this 👏 happen!

I hate modern recipe websites. All of them are full with ads and tracking. The leading recipe hosting in my country loads over 30 different trackers, and that's excluding the ads!

Tankies are wild. “Capitalism is bad because it creates monopolies which are horribly inefficient so lets replace it with a single, country-wide monopoly ran by politicians, there is not a single possible way this could go horribly wrong.”

Smartphones and tablets are here to stay. GUIs are a part of life.

The solution isn't to push users back to the command line. The solution must be to bring composability to the graphical environment.

I had a cursed dream where if you wanted to get a woman pregnant you had to keep fucking her and the baby just slowly built like a progress bar, and if she got fucked by other men the baby would look different in stripes.

No I will not explain further.

Someone recently reminded me of a Polish saying/joke from the bad old days of communist rule: There is a kind of communism that works, layered communism.

Layer of communists, layer of soil, layer of communists, layer of soil…

The history of multicellular organisms is basically a history of gigantic combining mech battles, since that’w what we basically are - gigantic sentient mechs built from trillions of what once was individual organisms.

No wonder the authors of TTGL got the idea.
