Hey @gitlab@twitter.com, what's the Gitlab Tenuki's name?

Beej's Guide to C Programming is a pretty solid one. It's one of the few C tutorial series that I think follows a very sane order to its topics and it's got a sense of humour, so it doesn't feel super dry.


@hiatthe Hopefully it works well so I can steal a bunch from you. ;p

I'd be interested to know how @gitlab@twitter.com would have handled something like . I'm honestly somewhat shocked at how out of touch @github@twitter.com's response was.

Dear seal/inscription experts:

Any idea what this might say? I am under the impression that the S is often short for "seal" but I'm not sure.

Seems to say:

S ionis rome (c or g) verie.

Please loop in people who might have some insight.

I'd love to get some feedback from some folks who regularly use languages that include non-English characters (á, ð, ğ, etc);

Do you regularly use these types of characters in your passwords? Do any major websites have issues with these characters?


(Even if you don't have an answer, I'd truly appreciate it if you could boost this so that those who might can see it.)

I might have posted this before, but it's worth checking out if you haven't already. This was trained to play a game not based on any traditional rewards (like score, distance, levels completed) but with the goal of avoiding "boredom".

It attempts to predict what will happen next and is incentivized for finding inputs that subvert those predictions.


I know that seems like a really annoying thing to do if you are just going to casually dig it out every once in a while, but think about your children and your children's children. ;p

If you want to increase the longevity of your your C64/C128 I'd recommend getting modern power supply (you'll need to provide both 9v and 5v) and splicing the connector.

The old Commodore power supplies are poorly built and when they die they can take crucial parts of your system (the SID chip in particular) to a their grave.

How nice of them to attach the key to a chain so that nobody can possibly get confused and put it in a more secure location.

Whoops, stayed up too late working on this Famicom/NES project. Hopefully it's worth it. I really hope this project will make it easier for people to get into programming for the Nintendo.

It was already free software was my point.

I'm certainly happy to see more software go FOSS, but a pull request for a dual license on a piece of software that already has a completely permissive license isn't the kind of thing that the FOSS world needs.

Maybe make a pull request moving the existing license to a more prominent location?

I think I'll avoid contributing to a project that urges people to "F*** Cops' daughters" for now. :p
