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§™ Lucian Marin Where do you go?
πŸ˜Άβ€πŸŒ«οΈ Gianguido I'm staying in Italy! Going in Calabria.
πŸ˜Άβ€πŸŒ«οΈ Gianguido Tomorrow marks the beginning of vacations! 12 days without work. Sweet.

♦️ Robert Unlike Monero.
πŸ˜Άβ€πŸŒ«οΈ Gianguido Or Zcash if you use it correctly :-)
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!
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.
πŸ˜Άβ€πŸŒ«οΈ Gianguido Going no-news has been a great choice for my mental health. Muuuuch less anxiety!
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.
