  • "unsafe" neclear

    There should be 1000’s “gen 2” nuclear reactors built. Period. One in any and every 3rd world nation with an unstable political situation. Cut costs and corners on safety to make it so faster. Tell the U.n. security console to fuck themselves and start a free trade of nuclear material.

  • organize rice

    Hello, any /g/ ricing frens. So, recently my computer had a hardware failure and I’ve been setting up a new programming computer, and well; my scripts, configs, and code while easy to pull off the hard drive, and were easy to get, But were wildly disorganized and hard to adapt to even minor changes.

  • proud antivaxxer

    Today the definition of antivaxxer is: And I with full pride say that I oppose laws that mandate vaccination. If you need a reason, well the unstable peace around abortion for the most part is built around the belief that the state shouldn’t interfere with medical decisions, roe v wade makes that fairly clear, and what happens if that’s overturned?

  • Dont convince

    In the culture of hyper-individualism, there is a mild disdain or mockery of debate for convincing others of your political positions while there is an overwhelming willingness to explain them. I get the feeling this confuses others. Why do I still my mustache like a cartoon villain, then instantly swap gears to discussing ethics, if perhaps narrowly?

  • gender neutral she

    I HATE “gender neutral she”. It sounds prissy and academic. If you are so far gone in the social justice to want to change language away from “he”, use “singular they” it sounds natural and is actually understood to be gender neutral. If you want to be formal use “he/she” or “s/he”.

  • educated stupid

    The philosopher and theoretical physicist, Otis Eugene Ray offhandedly coined the term educated stupid to refer to people incorrect about the nature of reality from the overly simplified version taught in lower education, and needed to unlearn anti-knowledge that got in the way of further understanding. I’m less informed on debates in theoretical physics and how much merit Gene has to be upset on the matter and won’t be commenting on physics, but I’d like to point out this problem exists in other fields of knowledge and maybe define it a bit more generally.

  • wishlist for an overcooked editor

    So, to write this blog I use word grinder + cool retro term, and its ok. but resently I found textreme and tried it out hopeful it was better. It wasnt… as a text editor it was lacking basic features, an inablity to open a text file from the command line, so I couldn’t slot it into my scipts.

  • variable length data words

    There is a trade-off between efficient pointer sizes and the fundamental max data allowed by your system. You can not have more memory than pointer size X the word size, period. If you want systems with more the 8 GB of ram or whatever tiny amount of hard drive space you needed to upgrade to 64 bit, which affected the fundamental choice of your pointers.

  • community building

    Heres an email update link that may work: https://mailchi.mp/1b14f5937da7/emails and heres my tiny discord (where there is zero rules): https://discord.gg/PfX6R9CrFZ I have zero tracking, and have no idea if anyone is reading save for one person who has emailed me at monkyyy@cocaine.ninja to say my rss feed didn’t work for such a such program (which I dont know how to do anything about).

  • review of D

    So… D, I’ve been using it for a while and I have some opinions. As it stands I would not suggest picking up D for metaprogramming or as your language for the next 2 decades but for your next small project with modest goals it’s a maybe. This space of C replacements has several newcomers in it, D will likely be my 3rd pick at the end of the day, I don’t know who wins, but it won’t be the old horse, it will be one of the risky new experiments.
