đŸŸŖ Ox Lynx browser users: What key "sends" my subreply status? I just get new lines on pressing enter or ctrl enter.

☕ David Antoine From 3y ago : "Either your browser has no JavaScript and renders the INPUT element contained by NOSCRIPT, or your browser support all the JavaScript used by Sublevel for its TEXTAREA. If you end up somewhere in between (e.g. by blocking JavaScript through uBlock, like me) the website becomes unusable". So maybe check your ad-block or JS status. Or just try another browser (I know it doesn't work with Opera Mini but Opera Mobile is fine).

🧉 Martin A few years ago I decided to learn Esperanto (the constructed language). I now spend anywhere from a few hours to a few days per week speaking it with friends from around the world. AMA :) (or just shake your head disapprovingly)
đŸŸŖ Ox Do you know about the Monero project? Esperanto is their language of choice

🤔 David Since you mentioned engineering podcasts are there any which you particularly like and would recommend?
đŸŸŖ Ox software engineering daily, changelog podcast

🧉 Martin I know it's something we often do in conversation (where it bothers me much less), but it's so much more jarring in a podcast. And of course it adds nothing but noise for the listener... it's merely an indulgence of the host at the cost of a smooth listening experience.
đŸŸŖ Ox Also, vocal fry and upspeak seem to be creeping into podcasts, along with interjecting politics into everything. Sometimes I just want to listen to an engineering podcast.

🧉 Martin Most of my backend code these days is Go. I like it because it's so minimal. While it's sometimes frustrating to not have various fancy language features, I like that it mostly stays out of my way and feels pretty "boring". Meanwhile my frontend's node_modules is a trillion GB and I feel compelled to keep a fire extinguisher nearby when I run the bundler :)
đŸŸŖ Ox Go is very handy, for that reason, because you can hand the code to someone without explaining and they know right away what it does. Boring is okay, I can agree with that, especially if the alternative is a sprawling tree of interlinked dependencies.

🧉 Martin Nim looks interesting. It's as if I've seen it become much more popular in the last few years, but until I just checked, I had no idea it's actually 12 years old.
đŸŸŖ Ox It is pretty fun, similar to C++ or Go in function, but feels a little more "scripty" and less cryptic to write.

🧉 Martin So, what's everyone up to today? In my remaining few months of "funemployment", I'm working on a language-learning app idea and hoping to get something out there before I run out of time.
đŸŸŖ Ox Working on learning Nim
