but need to figure out what code to actually write

the eternal dilemma

Someone should make a parody of that "Piracy. It's a crime." propaganda video for the dystopian timeline which Oracle won the lawsuit.

Video begins with a programmer in front of a monitor who's looking at a function prototype in a text editor. It shows:

BOOL ReadFile(
LPVOID lpBuffer,
DWORD nNumberOfBytesToRead,
LPDWORD lpNumberOfBytesRead,

Then big warnings appear: You wouldn't steal a car. You wouldn't steal a handbag. You wouldn't steal a television. You wouldn't steal an API. REIMPLEMENTING AN API IS A CRIME!

Allow me a moment.

That is a photo of the underside of the solar panel on the drone helicopter on Mars right now.

that little white cube on the ceter right of the image is a 1x1inch square of the fabric used in The Wright Flyer's wing.

First in flight. On Earth, and beyond.

#Signal turning into a crypto-ponzi currency scheme?


That Signal:
- isn't really free/libre software (as Moxie denied freedom to redistribute modified version)
- would *never* federate (political choice of centralization)
- updated server software wasn't published
- invaded people's phonebooks
- runs on Amazon+NSA's infrastructure
- is virtually impossible to use out of Google's infrastructure -
- etc.

...didn't seem to be enough to alarm Signal users.

tired: liberal snowflake
wired: leftist blizzard

Nice to see: Godot Engine (@godotengine) developer helping an indie dev release a Linux port of their game:

This is how Godot can help to take gaming out of the walled gardens.

inb4 someone creates a "SFS" that's a pun on the name "FSF" structured in a way to be immune from corporate-backed corruption

"Our opponent’s true target is not Richard Stallman; their real aim is to destroy the FSF by thoroughly infiltrating it (like they already have with organisations like the OSI and Linux Foundation)."


helping js friend:

how do you use websockets properly from in a react app?

because everything uses, which is not what the backend uses (because *I* wrote it) but that's what all the tutorials use

the websocket connection connects but disconnects and no messages go through, it all works w/o react being used

also why tf does LG call it "webOS"??? is that supposed to be a good thing for a TV to be???

I hate that in 2021 the word "large format display" now mean means "TV" and "TV" now means means "surveillance capitalism "Smart" TV"
