Anyone know how to parse RSS in C? I know I can use curl to download the XML file but after that I don't know. Looking to rewrite github.com/devenbl... just to learn the language.
you can use libcurl to downoad the file in c and use libxml2 to parse it?
Learning C sounds fun, what prompted you to learn the language?
C++ is safer, more useful, has infinitely more jobs, more pleasant to use...
I just discovered TypeScript. I've always hated JavaScript because of its typing, I might actually get into it now.
I'm a big fan. Been writing it for a while now and it's a huge step forward in lots of ways. I would say, though, that like anything, it can be over-used in pursuit of the perfect type system, whereby code starts to get a little noisy and not necessarily better.
Seen on 4chan: "are there any distros based on Debian unstable or testing?" "there's one called ubuntu"
Love the new icons
They are made by . I just customized them a bit.
I'm just really surprised Americans actually care about us going back to school, for fear we may die. Y'all didn't do anything for twenty years of mass shootings but now y'all care when the threat affects you too. American students have already understood and accepted the risk of death from going to school. We would rather go back and live our lives and, if we are fated to die, die.
I think people that phrase it as protecting the kids aren't being completely honest. Kids are not likely to die from COVID. As of June 17, only 13 kids aged 5-14 have died from COVID in the US (out of 103K deaths). What I am worried about are the people that interact with the students. Parents, teachers, grandparents, kids with pre-existing conditions, etc. Opening the schools would greatly increase the number of cases and put more vulnerable people at risk.
Unfortunately our Muslim neighbors cannot aid in eating the rich, as pork isn't halal.
Does anyone know how to get a CSV export of a Google Sheet automatically from Python, without ownership of the sheet? Right now I'm just downloading the export, then copying the link from which I downloaded, and using wget. The Sheets API looks overcomplicated for my uses and I think you have to own the doc for it.
got a vhs rewinder at goodwill today. now to get my vcr set up
VCR: when noisy and grainy image was a feature (nostalgia).
I know audio casette rewinders exist ( cdn.shopify.com/s/... ) but I didn't know vhs rewinders were a thing
There are hashtags, maybe we could make subcommunities like this? Feels like it defeats the "one big chatroom" thing though.
all your base are belong to us
gif or jif?
Origin of that quote btw: marcuse.faculty.hi...; page 182
I like the triangle because (a) it looks cool and (b) because we all have some /deviant/ political beliefs and it's important to appreciate them - though there's a more descriptive verb for that besides "appreciate". I'm not so sure, however, of tolerating intolerance, for those that are prejudiced tend to bite the hand that feeds them. But also there isn't too much to read into. It's essentially a reclaimed punk symbol now, maybe not too common but I'd like it to be.
It looks cool. What does the // mean? and im intolerant but its from first hand experience
^ the inverted red triangle was used to indicate political prisoners in the nazi death camps. "First they came for the Communists." The original author of the poem said this of the beginnings of the concentration camps: "Those weren't my Christian brothers, who were burned there, those were Communists, Jehovah's Witnesses, etc. [ernste Bibe(forscher usw.}. That's why I didn't care [mich nicht gekiimmert}." Just some food for thought really.
Anyone here play Nintendo Switch? Here's my friend code: SW-6179-6750-6992
I've been considering purchasing one to do the paper clip jailbreak but I have yet to more closely look into how active the homebrew scene is for those running jailbroken Switches. Have you jailbroken your device? If yes then how do you find the homebrew software scene for it?
