Un ingénieur Linux, un ingénieur Mac et un ingénieur Microsoft sont en voiture et crèvent un pneu.
L’ingénieur Mac dit : “Il faut changer le pneu pour pouvoir continuer”.
L’ingénieur Linux dit : “Il faut d’abord trouver pourquoi le pneu a crevé pour que ça ne reproduise pas”.
L’ingénieur Microsoft dit : “On a qu’à continuer comme ça on verra bien si ça se répare tout seul”.
Just spent hours on #npm install. First a package that was required but not specified, and then it turns out the latest version of that package is buggy and missing its index.js. For shits and giggles I check out the source of that package. It is literally just a hash map of version strings. 😩
Even if you are a beginner #Linux user, I highly recommend to start working on your #terminal skills. If you are a slow typer, your speed will increase. If you are not sure of the command you read, you can check it. Also check every command when you learn, and never press enter without know what that command does.
I also recommend 'nano' as a text editor to learn, so if you get in trouble, you can edit config files, etc.
Banks are now letting third parties spying on our internet banking:
Just a nice complement to this:
To be honest whenever I'm using a new elisp API I always waste time on rookie type errors. I literally have the function doc buffer open next to the code buffer and still miss something. Probably because I'm always doing exploratory stuff late at night.
Struggling to bend #emacs customize-group to my will. I'm trying to write a macro that will register the body as a λ in a hash table and define a Boolean custom variable that the user can toggle to enable that "module" and run the λ (which is just a chunk of my init file).
I have the basics of that working, but it's polluting the space with arbitrary module names. So I've modified my macro to prefix each var name with "init-module-", but now changes aren't taking effect. Fun, but frustrating.
Come on, you don't need shit like rollup and travis integration for a small project and if you're doing a larger project you'd better learn how they work and if they're a good fit for your project instead of blindly adding them.
In the words of an /r/ukpolitics user "this has aged particularly well"
"Open wide please so I can clean your back teeth" is boring and won't get a good response.
"Oh my god there's a big bug back there, I've got to clean it" is much more fun and makes toothbrush time fly by.
Took me way too long to figure that one out. Sorry son!
