minecraft modding 

When I think of what I'll leave behind, it should definitely be pretty scarves screenshots.

Wow, i'm going to have to take some time to process this. The short version is, is retiring.

First things first, while we're still here, I love you all.

Second, I will be migrating back to my comfy alternate home, @falkreon .

I'm not ready to say so long yet. Just give me a lil time.

"fair use provision" of *what*. Copyright law? Then the answer is yes. The tests you meet are about the completeness, the quality of the reproduction, and how transformative the usage of the work is. It has nothing to do with who you are.

I don't even know what answer they're looking for here.

@f0x Yes, I guess you're right. You could be controlling a waldo, and see the waldo's environment onscreen, but feel force feedback to enhance the already-displayed information that you touched something with the waldo. But it's still not the thing I would hilight with my only question about haptics in the entire course.

haptic technology has nothing to do with audio or video. It's a separate feedback channel for "feel"- either proprioception, surface texture, or vibration, which are all subtly different senses and have different technologies to simulate them. My favorite is that surface texture can be hacked by electrocuting your fingers

... but this isn't *true*

this is going to be another one of those classes :/

seeing masto reposted on tumblr, then screenshotted and reposted on facebook makes me bristle a little. It's a banger of a post but it wasn't *for* you. It's like when extremely straight jocks play "We are the Champions"

@unascribed that's your problem. Ghosts spontaneously drop the temperature. Your computer is not cursed ENOUGH.

finally ripped away from goDaddy, who ate the registrar that ate my original registrar, bluerazor.

namecheap will do for this year.

@unascribed the only thing I want is a better outline preview so I can tell where I'm putting my largg blonk

re: computer science beef 

@codl I have the same kind of hate/hate relationship with the deque data structure

touring a house tomorrow that I might buy. my life is weird right now.

re: counterfactual universe 

@unascribed it turns out that the venn diagram between people who think they need 144+Hz monitors for non-VR uses and people who think they need IR-UV support is just a smaller circle inside a larger circle; issues start arriving at various repos about bugs which only appear on unusually small resolutions because of the bandwidth tradeoff

@unascribed This is it exactly: if you ate the apple, you're chained to the game forever by the ancient faerie curse. If you only ever played Classic, you're fine, because Classic didn't have apples.

hmm. After field-stripping and cleaning this keyboard, it still seems the LED controller is having a really hard time doing its thing. I may need to look for a new linux-friendly mechanical keyboard.

With the Document API you'll be able to better inspect and *physically change/reorder* comments and line breaks; detect and preserve "doc" comments; put comments and formatting in some places Jankson did not previously preserve; and deserialize full nested generics and records.
