so, for over 4000 years the people of south-east/east europe tended to burn their villages about every 70-80 years?

very odd. why did they do that? nobody knows.

To be clear, "control flow" is wrong...I just can't think of a better word for higher level generic constructs like that yet.

Is there a word for based control flow? Like a way to group/describe higher level constructs like deduplication, round-robin, rate limiting, etc.

I need to somehow explain and expose these concepts to non-technical people and it seems like that'd be way easier if I could name the grouping of the constructs in a way that kick-starts some intuition.

@Ninjatrappeur Do you have terraform plugin caching enabled? You may already know about it, but I worked on a project with many providers and internal plugins (yay enterprise). As soon as I enabled plugin/provider caching literally 90 seconds of wait time just disappeared from my terraform applies and I wish someone had told me about it earlier.

I'm six minutes into Tenet and this is already the most absurdly Christopher Nolan thing I've ever seen.

Look, I really like Rust...but every so often I come across a trait + function that's so impenetrably generic to enable some kind of crazy compile-time resolution magic that it makes me homesick for Go.

At least in Go 3 levels of indirection just means following the chain to 3 different places and not evaluating some intersection of possible type resolutions in your head.

Handling tuple literals? Okay, that's pretty cool, rust-analyzer.

Has anyone used Pomodoros as a unit of measurement? It seems like I might be better at estimating that something will take 2 sets of 4 pomodoros (+ breaks) than estimating it'll take 5 hours. Since the working style is pretty strict, it also seems like you'd be able to correct it as you go/get feedback on accuracy.

Trying to model character desire in a narrative sense for my procgen cartoon generator. I've settled on a literal stack, where each element is a requirement. The ultimate goal being to have an empty stack.

ie: For Dorothy to get home, she must pop each requirement off the stack in order: ["Go Home", "Ask the Wizard of Oz for help", "Travel to the Wizard"].

Twists/character development might nned a pop+push to change focus or alias.

Can anyone think of a story/character where this doesn't fit?

My life decisions are getting stranger and less certain and I don't think this is financially sustainable in any way, but dammit I'm happy. Take that quarter-life crisis.

@danielhglus YES. THIS is what computing is about! *standing ovation*

WOW. No words. WOW.
Tetris implemented using a custom toolchain (+ attempted GCC backend!) on a custom architecture on a custom wire design on top of OTCA metapixels. What in the French-fried fuck.

@maya IMHO there's good reason to start local. Actual physical artifacts (posters, pamphlets, etc) are more personal & tailored to the location. If they help bootstrap a local political group then the group can decide what to do from there.

In this day and age anonymous online people talking politics comes off as angry people screaming. But people discussing it at a local coffeeshop or bookstore feels more tangible. Like it has purpose beyond outrage or "beating the bad guys."

Just my 2 cents.

@maya like left in a venue bathroom or on tables zine-style? I doubt I'd consider the politics, but I'd take notice and be delighted by the craft.

If you mean as a polished version of mass-distributed propaganda then i can think of much better uses for dead trees.

My sister and I have an Easter tradition for when we're stuck with family. We secretly agree on a list of phrases beforehand, and whoever can work the most into conversation around the dinner table wins.

Turns out this is even better over awkward family zoom because we can message the next one they have to do in real time instead of a static list.

It's her turn and she's struggling with "cutest cooperative colon."

Finally watched Chernobyl, and it's as good as everyone said it was. Feel vindicated, all you throngs of friends who recommended it.

And the Wikipedia April Fools' front page is now live, as of six minutes ago. Do check it out, especially the "Did you know" section:

Starting to feel the weight of complexity in this codebase and it's only 2000 lines of code 😳

Also, I should probably just delete whatever isn't committed.
