It will have them in its parsing errors too, when it has a parser.

My new programming language now has a short code dump in its lexing errors, inspired by #elmlang

@MOKKA I have been wondering for a while whether you could make a business building a site like Kizi where each game was crowd funded somehow. I'd want to open source everything as I wrote it, and I don't have time to invest in it, but would be cool if it could work.

@fbuontempo thanks! Wasn't sure anyone in the world would be interested, but wanted to do it just for myself.

Teenage son, soberly: "There's a question that's really been bothering me."

Me, bracing for difficult parenting moment: "Go ahead."

Him: "Say you have a square grid and a sphere. Is there *any* good way to map the grid on to the sphere?"

duckmaze is a game about a duck that is in a maze. duckmaze.sourceforge.net/

@cphuntington97 lol pure self-promotion. I am quite obsessed with theliturgists.com/podcast/ though. Similar topics but much better produced, better thought out and more mature.

If any of you have the time, my survey for my bachelors thesis was finally approved and I need some people to fill it out. It only takes around 2 minutes and it has a few pretty video game screenshots to look at!

you would do me a big favor with this, as I'm running out of time with my thesis so I have to rush it. ;;

For those having sleep problems: I fought to get to sleep for years and eventually gave up and just did what I wanted until I felt sleepy, accepting that I would have to cope with being tired the next day. It helped me a lot - might be worth a try.

y'know, something i've seen repeatedly is people shitting on Garg for not being able to handle situations diplomatically enough and then getting mad when he asks for help or advice and people tell him to pay them

like, i get why you're asking for money, but what i don't get is that you're asking someone who barely makes any money with this platform, money that's given entirely on a voluntary basis, you are sending a statement that you should be paid to use Mastodon
