You have a question for the #Krita developers?
Today, Boudewijn Rempt, Scott Petrovic and Dmitry Kazakov will reply them on this AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit!
I wrote a little bit about my recent Prolog excursion, writing an HTTP/2 client http://occasionallycogent.com/2018/08/26/http2_client_in_prolog.html
Four weeks after thinking "how hard can it be to send iOS push notifications in Prolog without using some service" I've done it! Only needed to write a PR against SWI-Prolog's ssl library and implement my own HPACK + HTTP/2 parser & client library 😁
I wrote my first SWI-Prolog foreign library in C to let me call additional OpenSSL C functions on the SSL context object that the actual Prolog SSL library returns so I could set the TLS-ALPN option...and it worked on basically the first try. SWI-Prolog is so awesome to work with
Writing a Prolog DCG with delay/1, when/2, zcompare/3, and if_/3. I may be slightly confused, but I feel so powerful
Getting substrings with Swift is maybe the most frustrating use of a strong type system I've ever encountered
Replied to a Google recruiter saying I wouldn't consider working there while they maintain their connections with the Pentagon & the American administration. That was mildly cathartic, I guess?
Beware detached, privileged ppl that fancy themselves intellectuals, who talk at length about things they'll never understand. I've heard so many repugnant ideas expressed in erudite, civil tones.
I notice it happens *a lot* with people in STEM fields tbh. I think math makes white cis het men feel like they don't have to have empathy or humility.
Alt-Right White Wolf Article: Update Show more
You may have seen the article going around from "Dog With Dice" about how the latest version of White Wolf's "Vampire: The Masquerade" was specifically written for and marketed to the alt-right.
The article author's whole site is now dead and their Twitter account has been deleted without explanation.
I suspect foul play and severe harassment from alt-right 4channers.
The article is still cached here. Spread it far and wide.
"How i [sic] Choose Software" - A webshit rants about not being allowed to be sexist in the FreeBSD IRC. In the process, he explains exactly why he shouldn't be allowed in the FreeBSD IRC, then proceeds to bikeshed how to keep all the _other_ sexists out.
(note, style is a blatant ripoff of http://n-gate.com/)
The bootcamp where I teach iOS development has started offering a blockchain course, which I hate. Am I morally compromised if I stay here, even if I'm not involved with that side of things (and argue with the cofounder about blockchain at every opportunity?)
Holy shit, that was a boring ass-vulnerability. Shame on EFF for being scary, and HTML email is Satan. We Told You So(tm)
I've been using eshell & dired more and more in lieu of a terminal emulator, but I switched today from st to alacritty, just because those suckless folks are such aggressively unpleasant dingalings
(I really like the purple too)
Oooh, the witches.town theme is very cool. I particularly like having a lil' Ouroboros re-toot button (matches my tattoo!)
Why isn't there an 80's-style basketball movie from the perspective of the evil ☭ team called "Nothing But Nyet"?
I am not sure why, but writing code in Prolog just makes me happy. Something about the language is just so...welcoming and pleasant to me.
I make computer things in Toronto, mostly in Clojure. I powerlifting, strongman, and Highland Games How are you?
