I did a thing. (GLSL shaders in Terraria!)

Also raymarching of course: pcy.be/tmp/img/2020-06-27T21-3 (too big to upload it here)

Watching the on makes me wish I could mix and match per character, so American characters can speak and the rest can speak or whatever other appropriate language is available for their nationality.

In general I prefer the original Japanese audio track, but it's weird hearing speak Japanese.

On Linux, if I create a python.sh:

#!/usr/bin/env bash exec python "$@"


And then I create an asdf.py:

#!/path/to/python.sh from __future__ import print_function print("asdf")


... that works. On macOS (Sierra, 10.12.6), I get:

from: can't read /var/mail/__future__ ./asdf.py: line 5: syntax error near unexpected token `"asdf"' ./zxcv.py: line 5: `print("asdf")'


Are you kidding me?? Has shebangs referring to shebangs never worked on macOS? How can anything work? In particular, how has nixpkgs ever worked?

This *must* have worked before. Something weird is going on on my system.

Super weird.

I am on macOS. bup in nixpkgs is a wrapper that adds the git path and calls .bup-wrapped. Perfectly normal.

.bup-wrapped has a shebang that asks to please run this file with python. Perfectly normal, usually works. The OS or shell tries to run the file with the shell, resulting in "from: can't read /var/mail/__future__" whaat.

So I set some environment variables and call the wrapper with Python explicitly. When it tries to execve a subcommand same thing happens. Super odd.

Executable bits on the files are set.

Deaf people, do you prefer a video not made originally in sign language have subtitles or an interpreter, or something else? :boost_ok:

The literal meaning for the slang term ‘poppycock’ is probably ‘pappy crap’ (from Dutch pappe ‘soft food’ + kak ‘dung’ - deriving from the PIE root *kakka- ‘to defecate’).

Pun: a stuffed animal with razor claws

@FiXato something to do with the Viking presence, perhaps. Also the Old English, Old High German, Middle & modern Dutch all seem to share etymology. etymonline.com/word/cow#etymon

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: has an awkward for 'assortert' (assorted): Ass.

So, who wants some ass. ?

that is called in , which sounds rather close to the word for : .
I bet there's some shared history there.

It's been a while since my back hurt this much...
Fortunately we still had some Naproxen lying around, which I remember helped last time, and once that starts kicking in, I'll go outside for a walk with , as I recall from the last time, keeping in motion is better for this than sitting still...
