@ekaitz_zarraga Depends on your language. If you have type classes you can emulate the inheritance and many functional languages have polymorphism. Failing all that, basically you pass the object data around and have some tag in the data structure to mimic the type, so you can have run-time polymorphism and even inheritance.
@drwho I see http as a fundamentally pull protocol, not a push one. If I'm visiting a website in a client that doesn't support images, I'm not blocking images, I'm simply not requesting them, same with all the tracking garbage. It's a misnomer to call it "blocking", I'm just not asking for them. To pretend that that's some kind of hackery and breaking the website, is disingenuous at best, as there's nothing in the way that the web works that requires websites to be packaged in a certain way.
I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.
This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.
I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.
Some of the best street art I’ve come across. It was outside Shibuya station, the Hachiko crossing exit, near the Hachiko dog statue, and was there for a good part of summer 2012.
The red symbol is the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) logo, the operators of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear reactor. The sticker is on the access panel for TEPCO owned electrical box.
"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."
the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."
with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.
Ondiz in February: let's start a little vegetable garden so we can eat some fresh lettuce from time to time.
4 months later: has forty tomato plants, a couple of pumpkins, fennels, two avocado trees, a raspberry bush, a pomegranate tree and a bunch of watercress. Has eaten 5 lettuces.
Not sure how happened.
