Regardless, the core concepts are the same.

Basically, it's not the PIC chips are harder to use than Arduinos. There are eight-bit PIC chips that are quite comparable to the small Arduino units. Unfortunately, that doesn't look like it's what you'll be using. These 32-bit chips look a bit like my old Motorolla. Lots of peripherals, lots of instructions.

Regarding Spongebob Squarepants being declared gay: Per Wikipedia, "Most sponges are hermaphrodites (function as both sexes simultaneously), although sponges have no gonads (reproductive organs)." I don't think you can be homosexual if you are a hermaphrodite....unless mating with another hermaphrodite counts, in which case all hermaphroditic sponges are gay.

Alright you Rust-pusher @lupyuen , I downloaded the toolchain. So far, Rust kinda looks like C...

accessibility, all developers read this 

You as a developer need to test and improve your applications support for assistive technologies. The simplest way to do this is to install Orca or NVDA and use your application as normal with a keyboard. If you want advice on this, please direct message me to ask me questions about improving your applications.

Also, there seems to be a huge shift in the appearance, manner and tactics of the people gathering during the day, and the ones setting fire at night. Unless the whole group went home and changed into their pseudo-militia gear, I think there isn't a ton of overlap.

My work sent a text with a number to call, should I be in danger and need to be relocated due to the protests. It is both nice, and disturbing. :hot_shit:

Clarke's Three laws (#2 is my favorite):

1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.

2. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.

3. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

Does anyone else need to restart their coding projects from scratch several times, when trying to work out something new? My harddrive is littered with with the husks of failed attempts...

Question about Mastodon/Whalebird: How do I make a direct message? I tried clicking on the Direct Messages tab, and the main pane just shows a spinning arrow cursor.

Currently, I'm playing Witch and the Hundred Knight. It's not a JRPG, more of a dungeon crawler, but I just came off of a six month run, playing every console Kingdom Hearts game, and I need a palette cleanser.

I am curious what other folks are playing, videogames-wise?

I can't speak to guns; it's not a topic that I'm versed in.

Hello. I'm new to Mastodon and QOTO, and just wanted to introduce myself. I'm a nerd with fairly broad interests. In particular, I play a lot of JRPGs, and have a nice collection. Regarding my technical knowledge, I'm a Control Systems Engineer who does a lot of programming. My current silly project is trying to beat TiddlyWiki into my preferred project tracking app.
