since i don't use the tagging system, here are cws for my account as a whole:

- nsfw
- mental health
- emotional trauma
- physical trauma (art only)
- stream of conscious, aka whatever unfiltered shit i am dealing with in my life at the moment

what i mean is: it's raw, it's raunchy, and it's not for everybody. i won't take it personally if you need to unfollow. do whatever you need to be safe.

they say that it could reverse the cryptographic hash of god in polynomial time

Show thread

have you heard of the programmer who wrote a function so subtle and elegant it could run on the chaotic perturbations of a falling leaf

i also kind of want "legendary programmer" to be a real lasting thing like imagine hundreds of years from now fuckers are telling stories about some great programmer the way we tell stories about like masamune or shakespeare

and mother fuckers keep putting a god damn null reference in their shiny new languages because who doesn't love a god forsaken null reference!!!!

Show thread

few would question having something called a string in your standard library, or math functions specifically named pow and sqrt and atan2, because that's what those things are called. [] and {} often contain arrays and dictionaries, respectively, because that's what they are for

Show thread

you know i reckon most of us dont really think of programming as having traditions but look, have you ever noticed how most popular programming languages use very similar vocabulary to describe very similar sets of features & concepts

anthology of appalachian folk music about structural type systems

going to invent a programming language that has null but the compiler comes to your house and punches you in the face if you use it

Show thread

Show thread

me and java ain't friends and it's because of null
