one of my friends made this puzzlescript game recently. i think it's pretty tricky (i'm nowhere close to finished) but really good! jacklance.github.io/PuzzleScri

a few days ago i was prompted to look at perl 6 aka raku more closely and learned that its ternary operator was ?? !!, as in

my $result = $score > 60 ?? 'Pass' !! 'Fail';

coincidentally, ?? !! also perfectly captures my reaction to finding out about it

haven't tooted in a while what's up masto

"There are only two hard problems in computer science: naming, cache-invalidation, and off-by-one errors. Deadnaming is all three of these."

after i've used my work laptop for a month, yesterday my mentor pointed out to me that it has two sets of mouse buttons. wtf lenovo?

i realized in bed i forgot to add alt-text to the image, so: it's a screenshot of glimpse (the fork of gnu image manipulation software, not that they're visually distinguishable yet) except almost all the icons are replaced with little broken crossed-out file icons because i am not, in fact, a leet hacker
