majority of my reasoning for wanting to learn how to sew is learning how to make a maid outfit that's high quality, fits me, and more modest than the lingerie-adjacent offerings online

I have nothing against the lingerie-adjacent offerings online, just not for what I want to use my maid outfit for (programming)


programming socks are largely optimized for a specific kind of programming (functional), whereas other outfits are good for other kinds of programming. such as maid outfits, which are for well-structured c code

@SuricrasiaOnline what's a good "I want to learn rust but every time I watch a tutorial I zone out" outfit

@synthgal idk why, but pink-striped elbow-length fingerless gloves come to mind. I cannot explain it

@synthgal that or a bottle of club mate because it was under the influence of that soda that I wrote the most amount of rust I've ever written

@SigmaOne idk how to explain it other than searching "business dress sexy" on google images

@SuricrasiaOnline @saphie jorts are for writing erlang that runs on telecom hardware

@SuricrasiaOnline what's a good outfit for "I need to understand this Java code well enough to ask an engineer what the hell is going on"?

@SuricrasiaOnline oooh so that’s what my students truly need. Does a maid outfit also helps with memory management in general?

@elise yes it forms the mnemonic:
M - malloc
A - alloca
I - i-uh, calloc
D - dhh.h.

@SuricrasiaOnline I’ve found a few references to that mnemonic, but I also found the following: “Memory Allocation Incentivises its Destruction”. That’s also quite enlightening!

@SuricrasiaOnline @elise

M - malloc, free, et. al.
A - atoi, atof, et. al.
I - ioctl, fcntl, et. al.
D - dlopen, dup2, et. al.

@SuricrasiaOnline by looking at people I know, I would guess blue wigs are for server admins

@SuricrasiaOnline what kind of programming is "computer, pull up celery man?"

@SuricrasiaOnline *searches hack-a-day to see if any sewing machines run lisp"

@SuricrasiaOnline That explains why they never much appealed to me. Any suggestions for object-oriented programming in arbitrary scripting languages?

@SuricrasiaOnline I wonder what is best paired with just wearing shorts and pantyhose. Is there a difference between sheer glossy black and suntan with reinforced toes?

@SuricrasiaOnline so i'm interested in this. why are programming socks particularly good for functional programming? i ask not in the belief that a wholly logical answer exists but that it follows on from something nonetheless.
