πŸ’ Lucian Marin Did they discuss about living in a simulation and how hard can it be to exit it? John seems to dedicate his entire life creating one.
πŸ˜Άβ€πŸŒ«οΈ Gianguido Funnily enough they did, although for a brief moment. Which IMO is good, usually that question tends to derail the conversation. Carmack seems very composed and anchored to practicality.

πŸ˜Άβ€πŸŒ«οΈ Gianguido Highly recommend listening to the Carmack interview by Lex Fridman, if you're into podcasts. It's quite long (almost 5 and a half hour!) but well worth the listen.

πŸ˜Άβ€πŸŒ«οΈ Gianguido is probably the best web app I've ever used. Too good to be true almost.
πŸ‘Œ Thomas I've only just found this through YC, it seems interesting!
Dimitri yeah, it's cool it's textual only which I've missed from 90's internet

πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ Patrick Williams What do you think about web3 platforms like hackernoon or hive.blog?
πŸ˜Άβ€πŸŒ«οΈ Gianguido Post quality doesn't seem very high on both to be honest.

Zero Edge This thread on hackernews has me completely baffled: news.ycombinator.c... . I cannot imagine debugging without a debugger. People in the thread act like step debugging you simply step through the entire code and don't simply place breakpoints at the places you want to look. I am so confused... I mean I use print every once in a while but I cannot imagine the kind time I would waste not using a proper debugger. Maybe I am just spoiled using Visual Studio and other modern ide's suck? You're telling me you print an entire hash table to inspect a few elements for improper data??
πŸ˜Άβ€πŸŒ«οΈ Gianguido Just yesterday I was working on a niche system, trying to debug a piece of code running on said system: I wish I had a debugger handy. The reality is sometimes you simply don't have one available, and the only alternative is adding printf's, recompile, flash/run... it gets tiring but that's the way it is!

πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’» Skyler What has been the best place you've visited in Europe by train?
πŸ˜Άβ€πŸŒ«οΈ Gianguido I might be biased but I'd say Italy. The train network is well connected and prices for low/mid speed train is affordable. On top of that, the scenery during the trip is astonishing.
