All those projects you never started? 100% test coverage. They are PERFECT.

The easiest way to increase the test coverage in your codebase is by deleting code.

Today in #Git Things I Do Frequently:

$ git tag help
$ git tag -d help
$ git help tag

I think a multimillion-dollar movie deal for a gorgeous, groundbreaking sci-fi film would be a nice start after all she's put me, personally, through while reading the books.

This is promising, the same shape can be generated with a cellular automaton, removing the need for a binary conversion table.

Sierpinski Triangle in with

- a binary lookup table at the bottom
- a combination of "A" and "M" to check if a & b == 0
- a "delay unit" for variables a and b
because one signal travels in north/west direction

I spent the past two weeks at the beach without using a computer. 10/10 would recommend.

Instructions for escaping the box are written on the outside.

#TenWordStories

I get extremely sad when I imagine all the people who are trying to escape the pressures of capitalism but cannot for reasons that seem to be out of their control or beyond their comprehension in that moment in time

you either die a developer or live long enough to become the maintainer

They tell me the video should be made available shortly after the conference, so I'll post it here too :)

Hello fediverse, I'm looking for a job! (milano or remote or consulting)

I am a creative technologist with a wide variety of experience:
- full-stack (node, react, sql, nosql, …)
- hardware design, embedded (C/C++)
- gamedev (Unity/C#)
- graphics (shaders/GLSL)
- linux + FOSS
- other programming languages: python, lua, clojure

➡️ s-ol.nu/portfolio

I especially like working on creative applications, across traditional technology boundaries and growing my skillset.

RTs very appreciated!

I see a lot of open source software projects that do not do a good job of describing themselves.

It's okay. There's nothing shameful about that.

Most programmers aren't writers.

Just like most writers aren't programmers.

I can't code to save my life, but I can write some killer copy and content.

Know of any open source projects that need copy written?

I want to contribute.

oh my god check this out

this just might be the coolest thing i have seen in my entire life

...the same country where I broke and dislocated my ankle at 18 and then, despite my foot being completely backwards, refused to get into the ambulance because my mother had trained me since I was little to *never* accept an ambulance ride because it's too expensive.

Of course those states look like utopia to someone who grew up in this shithole--they know nothing else besides the neoliberal hell where some capitalist is constantly waiting to take everything you (barely) have.

I know its fun to make fun of Americans who think Denmark, Sweden, etc. are socialist but also...take a minute to see where these people, usually Bernie folx new to the socialist fold and still trying to navigate the jargon and conceptual infrastructure, are coming from:

A country where you can still very easily go bankrupt from medical bills--where you can have a serious injury that knocks you unconscious and suddenly wake up in a hospital bed you can't afford to spend one night in...(+)

"I use Linux as my operating system," I stated proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. He swiveled around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision. "Actually," he said with a grin, "Linux is just the kernel. You use GNU+Linux!" I don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk: "I use Abyss, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. It's Linux, but not GNU+Linux."

The smile quickly drops from the man's face. His body began convulsing, he foamed at the mouth, and he dropped to the floor with a sickly thud. As he writhed around he screamed, "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!" In a cool fashion, I replied "Abyss uses the LLVM compiler suite, GCC uninvolved."

With a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life was ejected from his body. He lied on the floor, cold and limp. I've womansplained him to death.
