๐Ÿฆ„ Chip Uni Lots of us here are programmers. What's your favorite programming language, and why?
๐Ÿ”ป Trinity C because there's a ton of code to learn from. And if something I see seems weird I can apt-src it.
๐ŸŒŠ Zero Two python for the ease of thought to code
Ice probably rust, brainfuck, with a sprinkle of fortran77
๐ŸŽฒ Jamie C was my first language and every day I thank my past self for learning it -- even if I chose it because I didn't know of any other languages. That said, I can't think of any single language where I find myself constantly in appreciation of its design, and having the ability to express myself effortlessly. I think, if anything, I tend to have favourite libraries and frameworks. For example, Redux eases so many of my front-end complaints, and does so in a beautiful way.
๐Ÿ”ฎ Liv Javascript, because I know how to make pretty much any browser thing I can think of with it. That said, I've been playing around with Python and C# lately and it's a lot of fun broadening my knowledge. C# in particular feels like a level up, which is satisfying.
๐Ÿ˜ Yt L. I use python and JavaScript for personal projects because they're easy and productive.
๐Ÿงต Evan I love JS and TypeScript, be it through Node.JS, Deno, or the browser, because I've never not been able to get something done with it. My second favorite would be C#.NET Core, for my current jobs. Anyone who wants something like Java without all the crust, take a look at C# with .NET Core. It's got a lot of refreshing features and built-in async, await, Promises (Tasks) just like JS, far easier to setup a project, and doesn't necessarily need a heavy weight IDE.
โšก Kay Ruby because of its simplicity, it's elegant and flexible.
Martijn My VPN decided to die on me. Not even hitting 1 Mbps. This is definitely not what I'm paying them for.
Mark Dain Never gave a VPN too much thought, what do you use it for? Netflix or just general internet traffic?
Fred Richards These days there are a ton of different options. I really like tailscale, or zerotier. Tailscale uses wireguard, some very interesting technology.
Colindean must... preserve... namespace...
๐Ÿ’ฌ Subreply That's a pretty useless thing to do. Someone active can claim your username.
Jesper Bylund Can't believe this place is still around. Love the retro style!
๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ Lucian Marin Let's double down on retro style! Does anyone remember the pager? ๐Ÿ“Ÿ
๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ Lucian Marin "Not being able to love fully they will believe your love incomplete" -- Charles Bukowski. Not being able to live fully they will believe your life incomplete.
๐ŸŒฒ Tho My life is faaar from complete, and it's not even my fault (mostly) (shit genes)
๐Ÿ—ฟ Jonah reminds me of this: "The goal of adulthood is to let go of the other possible existences and to make the best of the one. A successful adult is one who understands that it doesn't matter which life you ultimately pick, only that you live it well."
๐Ÿ˜€ Tom holy f... I had over 4,100 tabs open in Firefox for Android. I had to copy them out in groups of 100 so I didn't crash the app.
Nick Silvestri I never understand people who can browse like that! I never have more than 20 tabs open at a time on desktop, and 10 on mobile. I recently got the Tree Tab extension thinking it would help me in those moments when I have quite a few tabs, but I've gotten good enough at managing my tab volume that it doesn't even give me much value.
โ˜• David Antoine 4100 tabs opened !? Are you OK Tom ? ๐Ÿ˜œ
๐Ÿ“ Mega Tried to edit my profile; I don't think I can set "Washington, DC" as my city, how would I do it? (I guess I could just put "Washington" but it's not really the same since it's in the District of Columbia.
··· 41w 4 replies ¬
๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ Lucian Marin Try Washington, United States. It works. I will try to match location by city name alone.
Trejrco Obligatory first post, trying to figure out what to do next. Also, still no IPv6 support here?
Fred Richards you could add cloudflare cdn (if you're not already using a cdn) and add ipv6 support automatically. :)
Mark Dain I believe Sublevel is hosted on Digital Ocean who are just now looking into IPv6. It really annoys me when I see people using Digital Ocean when Linode is basically the same thing but cheaper and infinitely better (IPv6, Longview, Node Balancer).
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??
··· 3w 3 replies ¬
๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ Lucian Marin I never used a debugger. A function or class should fit in my head otherwise it should become another function or class.
โ„๏ธ Tobias It seems that CSS is working actively against me
โญ Robert I got rid of almost all CSS on my website a few months ago, and I don't regret it: robertblinov.net
Zero Edge I don't see how FSD makes mistakes like this. It should know the lanes from the mountains of data it is has... You can't afford to have edge cases for FSD: youtu.be/zDEWi2nC-...
โ˜• David Antoine I don't remember where I read about this but the Tesla FSD is only a level 2 autonomous driving system. Only Mercedes as a level 3 car. And real full autonomy is level 5... There is a long road ahead (pun intended). I think it can work only if every car is automated at the same level and "speaking" with other cars for positioning and awareness. A bit like the TCAS for aircrafts...
๐Ÿง Nrmn Did anyone here look into handshake.org already?
โญ Robert Yep. I own some HNS and a few Handshake domains, and encouraging others to adopt the technology. Selling a domain right now: namebase.io/domain...
๐Ÿ˜€ Tom I feel like I'm losing brain cells when I hear reality TV shows playing in waiting rooms.
๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ Lucian Marin Not only bad TV shows makes you feel that way. I felt like losing my mind because newer versions of PostgreSQL are running on port 5435 instead of 5432. Subreply was down for an hour. But I upgraded entire stack to latest versions. Page loading is down from ~110ms to ~60ms on my end.
๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ Lucian Marin I got a new fridge. What should I stack it with? What's healthy or delicious in yours?
โญ Robert Healthy AND delicious: bacon, cheese, steaks, and ghee.
๐Ÿ’š Priyal Kumar mix a spoonful of sugar and 1.5 spoonful fennel seeds in a glass of water. keep it at room temperature for few hours or overnight. then drink it, or store it in fridge, or pour it into some other water bottle in fridge. cool and healthy drink.
๐Ÿ˜€ Kev Nookz what do you think about using flex #flexbox
๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ Lucian Marin I use CSS grid on Subreply and works smooth. I never liked flexbox.
Log Os How does this work?
โญ Robert Fantastically.
