@joe It predated Pinboard by 2-5 years, didn’t it?

@jws
@Andrew It came in with the 6 and 6 Plus, so iOS 9, I guess? I have big enough hands it’s pointless. My wife doesn’t, but triggering it accidentally was way too easy, so we both wound up disabling it for different reasons. 🤷🏽‍♀️

you should always run "dmesg" at the start of any investigation, to check if the system (that's still up!) has in fact oops'd. [www.brendangregg.com]

@Andrew Feature that I turn off. “Reachability.”
@jws
@thrrgilag Good news. 👌🏽

Boys who agreed w “My parents get really mad when they argue” “Even after my parents stop arguing they stay mad at each other” &c were more likely to agree with Machiavellian statements eg “Anyone who completely trusts anyone else is asking for trouble” [www.psypost.org]

@33MHz Source?
@jws
@lechindianer They take a swipe at Cocos2D, but seem to license Godot under the same license as it?
@jws
@schmidt_fu Sometimes? I’m more interested now in what I can take away and incorporate into my practice.
// @unixb0y
@jws
@schmidt_fu @unixb0y I actually tend to read Prefaces and Forewords, because they have the kind of global survey viewpoint I want.
@jws
@unixb0y Yes. Also looking for overall flow and vision of text. I want to understand the context of whatever I do read. And know when to head back to book in future for another round to flesh out that skeletal understanding more. @schmidt_fu
@jws
@unixb0y Depends. Often just read till I lose interest. Scanning is a lot harder on mobile, but even there, I spend a lot of time with table of contents, often page forward a lot to get the lay of the land, etc.

@jws
@unixb0y Bah, finishing books is overrated. Ransack them for the good bits, then move on.
// @schmidt_fu
@jws
@schmidt_fu @unixb0y You might begin to see how one could burn out on the genre. ;)
@jws
@unixb0y Code Complete by Steve McConnell (unsure whether 1 or 2 n & l) also often comes up in that genre. Kernighan might have a book out as well, Practice of Programming? And Pike’s aphorisms. And ESR’s The Art of UNIX Programming.

@jws
@schmidt_fu What anachronisms have you hit in spite of that?
@jws
@jeremycherfas Retconning: Imagine typing “synchronize” in 3 strokes. Stroke 1 emits “sink”, stroke 2 makes it read “sink row”, but then stroke 3 backspaces over all that and writes “synchronize”. Hmm, it’s more “rewriting history,” I guess.

@jws
@schmidt_fu What book is that?
@jws
@rafaelcosta You can make some rocking macros when you have a program expanding (and retconning, if needed) the key input stream. 😁
