My grandparents decided to learn Welsh when they were 65. After two years of lessons in it (and talking Welsh with me at home, I was going to a Welsh school and was already fluent), they were fluent. My grandmother, around the same time, decided to overcome her phobia of water and had me teach her how to swim. She'd swim laps with me in the pool up into her 80s.

You're not too old and it's not too late to try something new.

@ArtistMarciaX @denikombucha @ansugeisler I would tip/pay someone who published a info-graphic covering current colonial cash flows

Tip: Create an empty 10GB file on a #linux partition like this:
`fallocate -l 10G /ballast`
Then, if your #disk fills up, you can "eject the ballast" (with `truncate -s 0 /ballast`), immediately freeing up 10GB of space, and hopefully fix your disk full issue.

(If #PostgreSQL fills up your disk, it'll stop, and you can't free up space until postgres is running...)

Has anyone here tried to use nom (#rust parser combinators lib) with webasm?
I wonder if it is worth it

"We've moved beyond the idea that women wearing pants is a problem. Women wearing pants is powerful, it's strong, everybody accepts it, and it's associated with the patriarchy, it's associated with being male. The minute a man puts on a dress it's disgusting, so what are you saying? Men are strong, women are disgusting? I'm not doing that anymore. I'm done with that. I'm a man in a dress and if I feel like wearing a dress I'm gonna wear one." - Billy Porter



The enchanter summoned four warriors; a tiger, a leopard, a puma and... a skinny black house-cat, with a white mitten.

The enchanter scoffed, unimpressed. Well, three warriors would suffice, surely, they thought, shooing away the diminutive feline.

The enchanter jabbed a commanding finger towards the dark cave and the bigger cats stalked confidently, obediently, forward.

After all, what was more powerful than they three..?

No, this isn't Photoshop. This is the Arctic right now.

Sea ice levels over great swathes of the Arctic ocean are at historic lows (in the 40-year-long satellite record) for this time of year.

Design student creates a high-tech adjustable binder for trans people, which is apparently safer and easier to use than existing binding methods.


I compared the benchmark numbers for my multithreaded PNG encoder on my upgraded 2009 workstation (8 cores / 16 threads, 2.26GHz Xeon E5520) and this 2018 arm64 laptop (8 cores, 2.96 GHz Snapdragon 850) and they're neck and neck. :D

Sure, the laptop throttles down after a few seconds of sustained CPU usage, but it's a fanless light laptop, not a big ol' mid-tower case.

Tech advancement isn't just about how powerful a CPU we can make, but where we can put them at lower mfg & power cost.

okay so like seriously
if you know friends who want to write code who *haven't* been marinating in it?

stop trying to suggest they write stuff from scratch.

explain how to fetch source code for things, and keep it updated, and make changes, and compile

give them ideas like "make all the monsters in this game pink!"

the actual code is the easy part. teach them to work with using it, and learning to find where to put it.
