Pinned toot

I made a regex to match all multiples of 7, but it was >10,000 characters so grep couldn't handle it.

I wanted to write a prime generator, but all the popular languages already have optimised ones I can't compete with.

++[>++<[->>+>+<<<]>>>[-<<<+>>>]<<[->->+<<]>>[-<<+>>]<[[>[->+>+>+<<<]>>>[-<<<+>>>]<[<->[-<->]]<+[<<<[->>+>>+<<<<]>>>>[-<<<<+>>>>]<-]<<->-<]>[->+>+>+<<<]>>>[-<<<+>>>]<[<->[-<->]]<+[<<<[-]<[->+>+<<]>>[-<<+>>]<->>>>-<-]<[-]<<+<[->>+>+<<<]>>>[-<<<+>>>]<<[->->+<<]>>[-<<+>>]<]<[-]>>>>+[<<<<<.>>>>>-]<<<<<+]

Since when was it spelled quaternion instead of quaRternion?

@CaribenxMarciaX ah, this makes me think about how the chinese third person pronoun was historically non-gendered until after the opium war era, when western ideas that male is the default co-opted the word to reflect male people, and then a whole other word had to be used to refer to female people, and now it's awkward to refer to people without gendering them

Since Haskell → C and C → BF compilers presumably exist, I have an Iota → Lambda compiler, and I'm gonna write BF → Iota and Lambda → Tex compilers, that means Haskell → Tex will be a thing. Convenient!

This is a C64 demo for a *1541 disk drive*, and I'm just 😯. Even though I already knew that C64's drives were essentially computers with CPU and RAM, just the idea to use serial data/clock lines for video output is so incredibly AMAZING. So cool.

the worst part of knowing about confirmation bias is that you look for it everywhere

D&D lets you live out all kinds of fantasies, such as:
-Having everyone call you by your preferred name and gender
-Having a big group of friends who do everything together
-Making a reasonable wage as a freelancer
-Being able to murder the terrible leadership of your country
-Getting 8 hours of sleep

Cursed python 

I found a way to revert your python version from 3 to 2!

Moral of the story: add tests to your code so you find the errors earlier rather than later

Putting out a call to action. Please boost I need as much information and as many sources as possible

I need old demo discs of 2D/3D art from the 90's / early 2000s, especially educational.

I'm collecting a bunch of assets and sources so anything works, reference images included in this arena board
