Dear programmers, if someone asks for help about a paticular language please don't hold it over them. Saying things like:

"Shouldn't you know that?"

Someone could code 6 years in C and have no idea about basic OO principles. If they've done some research and can't make sense of them and then they ask a programming discord, you don't need to shit on them. You can just help them.

TLDR: Shitting on people for not knowing about something you know doesn't make you a better programmer.

Tore up my bike with a night time 10 mile bike ride (16km) at 11pm. I love dutch farm land in the middle of the night being all alone.

I am also pretty proud of my average moving speed (had to stop for a phone call at one point), it was almost 10 mph (16 kph) over the course of the whole trip.

Try to have fun today, beautiful people.

Fun is the ultimate expression of liberty. Authoritarians hate people having fun.

My research involves quantifying trace, toxic, particulate matter with neutron activation analysis. This is the neutron generator I use to irradiate air sampled filters, which are then analyzed by gamma spectroscopy.

Deuterium gas feeds into the magnetron on the left, which is ionized into plasma. The plasma strikes a deuterium film target in the chamber on the right, producing helium and a neutron beam. Aluminum then moderates the beam to thermal energy.

@freemo we're night owls I see! I'm a bit of a photography enthusiast and did a small photo essay on a series of photographs captured between 12mn-6am, back when I was unemployed and seeking... -something-. I think I'll dust it off and post it up here soon!

@n I always enjoyed the middle of the night, except for all the shops being closed. I wish the shops were open just no people, self checkout everywhere :blobcheer:

I saw this and I thought of

I love the community we have built here. No one waiting in the bushes to assault you if you say something they dont agree with; just acceptance and inclusion of everyone's ideas, it is wonderful!

do not disturb mode is great, but what about lonely mode? when you want even more notifications than usual?

@freemo there was a period of time where I used to hit this 24hr gym at late late hours, like 4am. Loved the solitude and cool temperatures!

So I got home around 1 am and decided to get for a 10 miles (22 km) bike right through farm land in the middle of nowhere. I'm half way through my route and stopped at a bench by then bike path and still haven't seen a single person car or bike. Why can't it always be this way.

You come into my house on the day my daughter is to be married and you ask me to boost your toots?

I sometimes put on my earphones without plugging them in my phone just so I can shut the outside world out.

I haven't been photographing much, but sometimes an opportunity presents itself.

I was sent this abomination. Shibirb, fluffer of the skies.

@echoz didja check out the 48min video on YouTube? This might be a Day One purchase for me!

The Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay walkthrough looks amazing!
