Kind of strange to see what appears to be a Mastodon instance that’s not acknowledging the Mastodon project and the hard work @Gargron does to create the software…

"No one has been tougher on Wells Fargo than myself," Treasury official Joseph Otting says during testimony.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren: "You mean at the OCC? That's a low bar"

Otting: "I would disagree with that. I find that insulting"

E.g.

var remember: (String, () -> Void)?
func remember(_ string: String, handler: () -> Void) {
remember = (string, handler)
}

gives

Cannot assign value of type ‘(String, () -> Void)’ to type ‘(String, () -> Void)?’

which is nonsense until you notice the missing @​escaping

If Swift gives you an error about a type not being assignable to itself (or its optional version) and you have a closure somewhere, check whether maybe the closure defaults to @​noescape. The Swift compiler doesn’t show that attribute even if it’s the reason for a type mismatch.

⁦@brentsimmons@twitter.com⁩ hits the nail right on the head on the current trajectory of the Apple Mac.

Also, kudos for the term “iOS triumphalists” 🤣 inessential.com/2019/04/23/fre

Heard a story on NPR about young adults (early 20s) who have few possessions - like they barely need a small daypack to hold everything they own. They rent or share anything they need. Two identical sets of clothing. Rent a bed in a room with 12 other beds. Gym membership with laundry and showers. WeWork desk. Both impressive and depressing.

@Gargron got an error authorizing the Amaroq iOS client after updating it. Email and password screen were English but 2FA screen is Spanish (I think):

Got a lot done today, both things on my to do list and quite a few not on it. Mysteriously, everything on the to do list containing the word “taxes” is still there with no progress made on them… 🤔

"I worked for a company that used [...] a machine learning algorithm that combined the personality test results with data from people's resumes to determine which candidates were the best fit [...] The system saw we had lots of managers named Michael, so it kept recommending managers named Michael"

I wonder if the ancient Egyptians had a simple alphabet and then became increasingly enamored with emoji, and it eventually replaced their alphabet. 🤔

Discord is valued at 1.65 _billion_ dollars.

What kind of person can look at that and go "ah, yes, this free chat service is totally not gonna screw us out of private data for profit"?
