Psychology is a funny thing. It can help you to understand fairy tales, mythology, and heavy metal song titles :-)
Doing a retro game, I'm considering using the PC speaker for very select sound effects. Thing is, while this is entirely possible, I don't know if it's actually desirable.
I've chosen not to accept my $10k in #StudentLoanForgiveness.
That's not my money, that's your money. That's money the government taxed from you. It shouldn't be used for my benefit. It shouldn't be used to relieve my responsibility for the bad investments I've made. That's not right. It's not fair to you and it's not good for me. We both deserve better than that.
Do I know anyone at IBM who could give me a breakdown on IBM COBOL for x86?
I've been reaching out asking how much a compiler license would cost for just me (to use for channel content) and I'm not hearing back.
Boosts welcome- I'd like to be able to grow the amount of COBOL devs out there a little bit.
It's not even YOUR music, is it, you just took advantage of contract law to claim exclusivity rights to its distribution and display even though that's a childish and impotent use of state-sponsored force that accomplishes nothing but making your own consumers miserable and resentful!
One of my #programming pet peeves is when you have a data structure with some members that are connected in some way such that making a change to one must also cause changes to the other, and then you have to write a bunch of getter and setter functions for each of them that keeps all of those changes coordinates.
It's not (usually) difficult to do, but if you have a bunch of members that you need to coordinate in this way it just gets tedious. You feel me?
@mike's recent blog post mentioning old screenshots makes me suddenly wish I had backups from my Linux experiences twenty years ago.
So, I'd like to make a public request for your oldest FOSS screenshots.
Please reply here with alt text describing the programs seen, running, your setup/environment, etc, and put the year in the body/comment.
This should be hella fun.
KINDLY BOOST! 😁
Just to clarify, I don't DISLIKE anime either, I just don't consider myself a fan of it in general. In my mind it's just a style of cartoon and manga is a style of comic book.
