Eclectic moron. Expects more with less clever tech. C++, Lisp, walking, simple life.
🏒 Lucian Marin Samsung is going for a minimal design with Galaxy S23. I hope that Apple and Google will follow this trend in 2023.
Vincent L. Can't wait :)
Vincent L. Apple, back off. Remove protruding lenses. Add fingerprint sensor. Thank you. SE'16 ftw. -- While you're at it, give me a physical keyboard. Thank you.

👨‍💻 Matthieu V. What do mean by "owned" ? By the way, I also am in consideration to renew mine.
Vincent L. It's like I have to have a smartphone. They're expensive and powerful, a lot more than my basic needs command. Yet they don't make me feel comfortable.

Vincent L. The notion of buying a new smartphone makes me feel owned.

Vincent L. Instead of daily newspapers, there could be use in weekly, monthly and yearly event reviews. Maybe with some analyses but each should keep concise.
🏒 Lucian Marin Did you check the News section? Only the latest article from each source is shown making it easier to digest it all.
Vincent L. Twitter is under attack. Subreply works fine ;)

💻 Kenneth Jensen There's a fair-sized market of used ThinkPads for this reason. Whoever put these big-ass bezels on a laptop then try to pass it off as the LVDS driver had ought to be stoned. Seriously unusable without a tiling window manager.
Vincent L. Yay to thee

🤘 Matthew Oddly enough, I've only just started using regex in emacs. Whenever I needed to edit with regexps before, I'd switch to vi.
Vincent L. I feel compelled to mention emacs' re-builder, in case someone doesn't know about it masteringemacs.org...

🤘 Matthew Emacs, but I can use ed and vi when they're better suited to a given task.
Vincent L. Emacs too... I know enough of vi to quit (without saving) 🤘 But I can use nano when I'm forced to ;)

😀 Tom In Texas, many are without water, power, and internet. With no lights and internet, I wonder how many people's sleep schedules that's going to affect.
Vincent L. If this is to last, I'm relocating now ;)

🏒 Lucian Marin On Linux you can use Dash to Panel on left side of the screen. Same can be done on Windows to save vertical space. 16:10 is a lot better for content creation, 16:9 is for content consumption.
Vincent L. Thanks for the suggestion, very nice of you :) Under Linux I'd actually be using Xmonad or StumpWM to have my screen /full/. When reading code, my mind-buffer is sometimes blurry, I need my screen to show me as much state as it can. Rant is over. There's not fighting against The Market. But I won't buy a Thinkpad until they have proper screens back :p Nay, Lenovo.

Vincent L. 16:9 screen on a laptop? No way. (Are they nuts or what?)

Sergiusz I was a part-time teacher in a vocational high-school (it technician) for the last one and a half year. It was a great adventure! I wish to pursue it, but sadly I don't have enough time between my other jobs/projects.
Vincent L. Teaching is really awesome when kids get curious about what you're showing to them

Miso What project are you all working on these days?
Vincent L. I'm grading my students for their Word/Excel/HTML exam. Neat :D Otherwise, I should figure out what occupation to seek for next year.

🏒 Lucian Marin Janet is a decent Lisp. I like how close it resembles Python.
Vincent L. Thanks for the suggestion :) You may be interested in Hy, too. To make my original point clearer (if I had a point): I don't think I'll have a choice in picking my language, professionally. This motto is a way to reassure myself that C++ is a sane language, after all.
