Coding is fun.
🏒 Lucian Marin We can't swim from instinct, we have to learn. Tabula rasa is the name of the theory.
☝️ Jean-David Moisan Is that something you believe in? There's already a lot of evidence against that theory.
♦️ Robert Blinov In contrast to animals, people are born without instincts or knowledge. Nobody should ever be called dumb for not knowing something.
☝️ Jean-David Moisan Where did you learn that humans don't have instincts?
😀 Tom How many of you type something out to post, but then decide it's best not to hit enter?
☝️ Jean-David Moisan From time to time.

🏒 Lucian Marin Firefox brand is weak, it's associated with IE era and it's dropping market share like crazy. Mozilla brand got a nice refresh, it's trusted, it's associated with privacy and they got new good products that need to carry Mozilla brand. It should be Mozilla Suite for a new internet age: Mozilla Browser, Mozilla VPN, Mozilla Monitor and so on. This way the browser will be their main product, it will have internal focus and probably gain back the market share.
☝️ Jean-David Moisan That's really interesting! Though I don't really associate Firefox with those other products. Makes the browser seem bloated. I disable all the extras that I can.

🏒 Lucian Marin Mozilla should rename Firefox back to Mozilla while it's not to late.

🏒 Lucian Marin Should I believe GoAccess when it says that Subreply gets ~1500 daily unique visitors?
☝️ Jean-David Moisan It's definitely hard to believe. I guess it's possible if most people lurk without any account. We have around ~50 active people otherwise. Might be bots browsing the site?

🏒 Lucian Marin Let's do it. This weekend I will try to merge threads and replies in a single feed and do the same for profiles. Discover is the most visited page.
☝️ Jean-David Moisan The other pages like trending don't really make sense to me since they barely change over the weeks.

🐓 Mega That's really cool! Are you going to use it for something or is it just for fun? Also, can it go around both boxes at once?
☝️ Jean-David Moisan I'm using it for my game, the controls are like StarCraft or League of Legends where you click somewhere to make your character move there. --- Here is how the algorithm looks when it's searching for a path. This all happens instantly.

🏒 Lucian Marin I created in a few hours. It displays math expression result on the right for each line. You can assign expressions to variables. Should it be an Electron app?
☝️ Jean-David Moisan Do you have a repo for it on GitHub?

😀 Tom When I work with kids, I'm told that I have patience with them. I don't feel like I'm doing anything out of the ordinary, just treating a kid how they need to be treated. If people go out of their way to praise that quality, then it must be a rare quality. That's scary.
☝️ Jean-David Moisan That's something I notice too in general.
