I know there's a lot of demand for reviews of books that came out 180 years ago, so I wrote a bit about my thoughts after reading *Democracy in America* http://occasionallycogent.com/2018/10/10/democracy_in_america.html
@wink @algernon It's a client's webapp - simple enough Clojure + Clojurescript + postgres setup; migrated from Heroku several years ago (which is why we used Dokku at the time, very similar deploy process).
I think my problems with it were 1) I don't like Docker (find it over-complicated for what we need) and 2) written in bash (which just seems like a bad idea) & hence gets confused very easily (e.g. app env vars get mangled by bash quoting rules).
@algernon I have one server that's using Dokku and I hate it so, so much. It's incredibly fragile and just super-frustrating to deal with. I would recommend against.
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!
@drdrang In the `find` pipeline, doesn't the "*.epub" bit need to be quoted to pass the literal glob to find?
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
@Sheepsticked That was the most unbelievable turnaround I've ever seen
@algernon :O that is so cool!
@noelle I've heard he's actually more like 5'11" and lies about his height :p
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.
