MarkovJunior is a probabilistic programming language where programs are combinations of rewrite rules and inference is performed via constraint propagation.
Normally, I don't post 100% negative stuff like this, but this did the rounds on Merveilles and I fucking hate software patents.
That "Bionic Reading" thing with the bold letters that went around the other day is turning out to be a patent & trademark scam run by nutjobs. (Also, it doesn't work.)
DuckDuckGo has completely removed and hidden my website -- completely, and including Ripcord -- from all search results. I only know about this because someone messaged me to say they were pointed to a site with malware instead of my real website when searching for Ripcord on DuckDuckGo.
I don't host malware or anything like that on my website. I am careful about what I have on it. I don't even host unsigned executables on it. 🥴
Bing also hides me, too, I guess.

I used Go once, for a single small project, two years ago. Recently, I was forced to update the single dependency (acme/autocert) in the project due to bugs in it. But Go also had broken backwards compatibility during the last two years, so my project didn't work with the newest version of Go.
My project is a single main.go file. The Go website claimed they wouldn't break compatibility, which is why I tried using Go for the project. Regret.
