@goat please enjoy this screenshot of a Tumblr thread detailed the happenings of Reddit which I downloaded from a different part of Reddit so I can now post it to Fedi

I accidentally hit F1 in Notepad, and... what the fuck is this even. It just blows my mind that there is a flagship hotkey for help that opens a Bing search, for the phrase "get help with notepad in windows 10" and apart from the MS sponsored links at the top it's scam sites all the way down. In Notepad.

You wrote about murder?? Murder is illegal?? You wrote about this dude killing someone and you didn't even say 'murder is bad' at the start of the book, wht wtf, wtf is wrong with you? I can't believe you condone murder, I can't believe you're pro murber, oh my fucking God don'ttalk to me when ou literally kill people, freak. I'm calling the cops, what the fuck, I'm shaking and crying.

The “Keep _______ Weird” crowd needs to learn that the way a place gets weird is by having cheap housing so people can work part time or not at all and still make rent.

Sort of like OCD, but the Obsession actually happened to me, it genuinely isn't rare/unreasonable to worry about, and the Compulsion is an activity that can at least be said to be a net positive for the human condition (even if it's not a rational response to the Obsession).

For me, PTSD is holding myself to ridiculously high standards on the theory that they would have protected me, and then being silently furious at everyone else for flippantly ignoring the danger they're putting themselves in (i.e. not having the same high standards).

Remembered out of nowhere that there is an entire TLD called .frogans, which is reserved for “Frogans sites”

What are Frogans sites? From what I can tell, Frogans is a doomed / cursed project that has been labouring for a decade to pointlessly redesign every web technology, up to and including URLs, so that when you view a Frogans site in the official (still-unreleased) Frogans Player, it will look exactly the same on every device, down to the pixel.

get.frogans/

As far as I can tell, they have supplied no reason for this to exist; no rallying cry like “the web is too complicated” or “end online surveillance”

They just wanted pixel perfect layouts in XML and decided the best way to do that was to become a domain registrar

Things medical professionals have told me: I am too smart to have ADHD.

For the two people out there who need an implementation of canonical Huffman codes but are too lazy to write their own, I present this Go library.

It's appropriate that here, now, at the end of all things, the language of choice is Javascript.

Why am I writing my own zlib implementation in Go? Really. Why do I do these things to myself?

D-Bus is the CORBA of IPC.

Actually, CORBA probably had better generators 🤔

I had a Homestuck dream. Haven't had one of those in quite a while.

Dirk and I were "Heart buddies".

The terrible cover of the Cardigans' Lovefool at the end of the terrible Romeo + Juliet play in Hot Fuzz lives rent-free in my head.

WHY DO SO MANY COOL OPEN SOURCE WEB APPLICATIONS DEPEND ON DOCKER, HOLY SHIT LEARN HOW TO WRITE PROPER SETUP DOCUMENTATION :blobcattableflip:

I refuse to run Docker containers inside of Linux Containers so my options are…
- Install manually and make upgrading a pain in the ass
- Don't use the app

As much as I would *love* to use it, the reliance on Docker for managing 100% of the stack is a *hard* no. Figuring out how the image has changed between releases would make manual maintenance absolute hell and I am unwilling to shoulder that burden.

Not everyone is *able* to use Docker and not everyone is *willing* to use Docker. By not supporting any other deployment method, you are preventing some individuals from using what could be *the* application they've spent years looking for.

Let the admin decide how to architect their own systems. They know their backend better than you do.

"Currently Go supports calling up to 18 arguments when calling function from a Windows DLL. But there are some SDKs that have functions with 22 and more parameters."
