Pinned toot

meta, several subtoots, no specific persons, negative 

if I don't know you and you are having a discussion in the federated timeline and I (or some other stranger) join in, it's alright if you can't read anything I say, but if you tell me to shut up just to be edgy and rude (and because I exist outside of your pecking order), you are an asshole and it wouldn't fly anywhere else other than fedi.

I don't need late binding and live updating, cause advanced features of the type system, which I never use and only demonstrate in artificial examples, allow me to prove that my code is correct

Micro optimizing software is literally as wasteful as buying bitcoin tbh is a cute music player which runs FM synthesis in #Squeak #Smalltalk in your browser.

Although an "extreme" example, having fancy animations, and even being able to modify the instrument timbre at runtime, this is a very valid means of presentation. How does one unify the "personal" aspects of e.g. #Gemini, with not even being able to present a song?

never back down 

always back up instead
back up everything

And earlier when developing my collaborative filtering idea, I had assumed it was a bit too annoying to pick "delegates" to base filtering off, so I used an automated approach. But if you have to ask your friends for opinions on servers, what's the difference between that and delegating?

To me as a poc, this shit is depressing and terrifying because they allowed them to go INTO THE CAPITOL BUILDING unimpeded, showing just how deep this system is entrenched in white supremacy. Who's gonna protect us, apparently fuckin nobody

re: rust, spicy, you should read if you're a crab, educational 

but FR, if anyone's confused by this (and has been lead to believe the 'class oriented' (note, this doesn't mean classes are bad, just appropriated) programming languages are all there is to OOP):

in Self this is documented here

for JS 'hidden classes' and transition trees here

slotette is a reference to 'closette' which was used to describe metaobject protocol CLOS has and is in the book 'The Art of the Metaobject Protocol'

you should grub up ๐Ÿฆ€โ€‹๐ŸŒฎโ€‹ this is object oriented programming

hash lisp included because frankly the list of effective-slot-definitions is the same idea, this is OOP and it always has been ๐Ÿ”ซโ€‹

@Gnuxie Every time you complain, we add another pointer indirection in order to support more fancy OOP techniques.

*someone complains*
Welp, guess with another pointer I can swap out the storage vector for CHANGE-CLASS now :blob_owo_evil:

today Rustaceans discovered mapped objects from Self (and JS), just without the infrencer, the inline caching, methods, the transition tree, clone, parent slots and probably more!

Some genius even seems to think they just discovered 'data oriented design', fucking- WHAT?? LMAO ๐Ÿ˜นโ€‹

Kinda hoping someone comes a long with 'slotette' with a 'metaslotprotocol' next but that might be asking too much ๐Ÿ˜นโ€‹๐Ÿ˜นโ€‹

my uncle who writes C++ and still has a System V Unix license sent this to me

might be a subtoot 

or anything ever. just stop associating groups of people with things. it alienates those who don't fit the stereotype

queer tech people be like

First thought of 2021: "Retrofuturism is just that. It's old for the sake of being old (retro-), and it scales terribly (-futurism)."
