Someone mod Neil Breen for Wallace Breen in Half-Life 2...

"Who am I? What am I?"

#HalfLife2 #NeilBreen

Nothing like waiting 6 months for a , and then having it finally ship just three days before a 9-hour flight when it would have been at its most useful. It *might* still arrive before I travel, but it's GLS, so I'm not holding out hope. 😢

@mwlucas Clearly, they've made their system completely and verifiably secure and any further expense on security would be a waste of time.

"We omit the unenlightening list of counterexamples needed to establish this claim" may be one of the best sentences I have ever written

@ProfKinyon "The exercise would be left to the reader, but it's clear that the reader is intelligent enough to figure it out for themselves; if the reader isn't, then they may want to reconsider this paper."

Kiwi farms, HN 

@fullstackthaumaturge @JordiGH I think it leans more libertarian than republican, but it's definitely critical of anything that involves regulation either way.

Seen on IRC "hmm, cmake ... it's nice in terms of billable hours, and that's the best I can say about it"

@jsiehler @ProfKinyon "Oh, that's nice, isn't it? I'm glad they're getting
something, 'cause they have a hell of a time."

@jimsimons Hmm. I've usually been able to stop it with Cmd+.

If you have some minimal sample code that triggers what you're experiencing I can experiment with it.


@maloki Last unsolicited recommendation, I promise:

Rooibos. Prepared just like tea, you can get it in bag or loose leaf form, and drunk black I find it tastes like a mix of tobacco and honey.

No caffeine and fairly low in acidity and tannins.

It doesn't taste like coffee, but substitutes well as a hot drink.


@maloki No worries, apologies if that came across as invasive or rude.

Whenever my own IBS flares up (I'm one of the "lucky" few that its only sporadic for), I've found switching to decaf helps a little bit, so I figured I'd suggest it.


@maloki I feel for you.

Do you know if it's the caffeine or the acidity that triggers it? If it's the caffeine, then decaf beans have gotten pretty good over the last few years. Fill an aeropress with decaf, freshly ground, and you'll be hard-pressed to tell the difference (especially after a few weeks without).

@futzle @BernhardWerner because each time you instantiate a new array it is considered a different value. arrays and object values are their references not their contents

@futzle @BernhardWerner it’s like allocating two blocks of memory and comparing their pointers: even if you write the same data to both locations, they’re still different locations of memory

Turns out that when you don't have a sword (knife), the pen is pretty great for opening up plastic wrapping that refuses to yield.

@Scmbradley To its extreme... yeah.

It's rare that I like a philosophy less than objectivism.

@BartoszMilewski Exactly. Ted Cruz is just a 100% normal human being. Why would his direct male ancestor assist in encouraged euthanasia?

@JordiGH @saadazim

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're refering to as GNOOM, is in fact, id/GNOOM, or as I've recently taken to calling it, id plus GNOOM. GNOOM is not an game unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning....

@dressupgeekout Grammar not my forte at this hour.

You see in front of you a bottle of whiskey?

Do you drink it ?
