On the subreddits I moderated, I used a big regexp to preemptively filter their comments

Letting one through was a rare event

Apple has done this many times before. Over even more frivolous patents (i.e. a glossy black rectangle)

They made their bed, now they have to lie in it

Sign language yes, real time captions no. Only whatever live transcription crap your phone or computer could do

Djot is a markdown alternative, created by John MacFarlane, creator of Pandoc and spec author of CommonMark. It aims to fix many of the little issues Markdown has, and does a pretty good job of it, imo.

Lucas was excellent at big picture things, but should have been kept out of the details. Particularly dialogue

So they went to the same model Pandora used to use 15 years ago

Reddit has been dying for a decade or longer, it's just now the people who saw it through all the previous crap, and tried to make it have some semblance of the site it once was, have up and left, leaving it to the brainless hordes.

Joycon drift, and all other thumbstick drift, is already a solved problem.

  1. Use bushings that actually have some abrasive resistance and aren't softer than a fingernail.
  2. Use a non-contact based sensor to determine the XY position of the stick. Hall effect, optical, strain gauge, whatever, we've had the tech for 50 years.

The reason why they haven't done this is one very simple reason: $$$

Keep in mind the users left on reddit aren't really the cream of the crop. They're the ones who say stuff like "bruhhh this app is shit" fully unaware that reddit is a website first and foremost

Reddit is competing with Instagram and TikTok for the dumbest slice of the Internet. If you can think, you're no longer welcome there, and are probably a liability to their advertising efforts

Have you been to digg recently? It's a buzzfeed clone. Just because the brand is still around doesn't mean it's the same product at all

It's like if I bought Nike and then killed off all their product lines and only sold high viscosity lithium grease. Yeah Nike would be around, but it would be meaningless beyond that

I hereby officially announce the Elixir type system effort is transitioning from research into development: https://elixir-lang.org/blog/2023/06/22/type-system-updates-research-dev/

A huge thank you to Fresha and Starfish for sponsoring this new stage. They are also hiring:

ExUnit is wonderful, and the functional paradigms that underpin Elixir let us write extremely complex tests in a fraction of the code that would be needed in OOP testing frameworks like RSpec.

But it's not all wine and roses. Tests can quickly accrue tons of boilerplate and repetition.

Using some Elixir features, you can cut down on these, and make tests even nicer to write.

That was before the whole clown show. The valuation cut was dated May 31st

I got tired of hitting ⌘Enter and not having my post automatically go through, so I wrote a little userscript that enables exactly that.
