🏒 Lucian Marin We can't swim from instinct, we have to learn. Tabula rasa is the name of the theory.
🌲 Tho yet scientists say that fetuses dream of life on earth when still in womb
🐇 Robert Blinov Share these places with us!
🌲 Tho procon.org kialo.com
🏒 Lucian Marin And they told me that Python is the slowest programming language and PostgreSQL has the slowest database connections.
🌲 Tho python doesn't scale :P
🌲 Tho just filed my first bug report to apple (zero-width spaces are displayed with the width of 1 in Terminal)
🌲 Tho i love our cozy little community here at subreply. everyone follows each other without thinking twice and interacts with each other like old friends. thank you <3
🧑‍🎨 Adam Rajnoha how did it go? :)
🌲 Tho yesterday was the second round of interview. i think it could have been worse. i confidently answered all the questions about linux commands, but there were some bad moments too, like i struggled to name the differences between a hard link and a soft link (i knew them by heart but couldn't wrap into words). i couldn't answer what a syscall is, and some others i can't remember
🌲 Tho applied for a position at Oracle. cross fingers for me pls... i mean i'm going to be interviewed tomorrow. i was vouched for by a friend who works there

🐓 Mega if only there was a "hackintosh"-esque thing for android
🌲 Tho i love apple computers, but i absolutely loath apple phones. they are so stupid and underfeatured. macos and ios are like heaven and hell
🌲 Tho because everyone would be better off if there were no secrets. i couldn't say it better than scott adams, read his blog post scottadamssays.com...
🌲 Tho privacy is a meme. i'm anti-privacy. ask me why
Zero Edge Waiting for apple to release a foldable iPhone. I like them.
🌲 Tho apple is usually 10 years behind in terms of features compared to android, so you'll have to wait for a while :D
☮ Christopher Patti Swift. It's the language Apple is pouring money into. The Swift playground seems like a neat idea. Alternately, if its level of abstraction is too high and that makes you itch, you could always try Objective C I guess? :)
🌲 Tho yeah, that sounds reasonable
🌲 Tho okay, i finally got my MacBook air. now what language should i learn in order to make money on it? i guess c++ is out of contest because of the different architecture?

🏒 Lucian Marin In other news, tookapic.com is shutting down. It launched in 2014, same as Sub. Their comments section was an inspiration for how replies look here. I will never shut down Sub now that is has this nice .com domain. I optimized the backend performance for the cost of a Netflix/Spotify subscription.
🌲 Tho long live sub!!
🌲 Tho macports vs homebrew?
🏒 Lucian Marin I only used homebrew. It has everything I need.
☮ Christopher Patti Homebrew by a long shot. The only reason to even entertain Macports is if you have a beef with the way Homebrew is laid out. Macports purists take issue with putting things into /usr/local. My take? It works so I could care less :)
🏒 Lucian Marin You liked macOS so much you ordered a MacBook Air?
🌲 Tho yep. i'm going to miss the trackpoint though
