Fuck streamelements, they still send you spam mails after you delete your account (because of the spam mails).

Don't expect me to work around bugs in your unicode handling.

.NET Core is the best web framework I've ever seen. Nothing comes close in terms of ergnomics, feature set, and general productivity.

But Microsoft's desktop UI solutions are such a shitshow. Qt is so much nicer to use.

I've published mkups, a CLI tool for creating, applying, and inspecting .ups patches.
Both as a reason to write something in #rust, and because I didn't find an existing tool with similar usability.

everyone who has ever written a line of code in the ms teams codebase should be fired immediately.
i wouldn't trust them to write a working "hello, world" application.

I have a closed source elf file that has the wrong™ elf interpreter.
So I just patchelf --set-interpreter it, right?
NOPE there's an attached archive at the end, and adding another elf section at the end makes the binary not find it anymore

(Workaround: exec -a the elf interpreter)

1. Microsoft can't afford a spellchecker, which are free

ChatGPT has two modes: It can very quickly give you the answer you want, and if it's not exactly what you need, it will iterate until it is.

Or it can completely fail at the most basic questions. When interrogating about Haskell's fix function, it was very confident that the fixed point of \f \x -> x + 1 is -1.

Overall it's very impressive, for Q&A it gives vastly better responses than Google, and it can even debug code. But as soon as it gets a little bit off track, it starts making stuff up, and it's very confident in its incoherent responses.

the biggest sin of the gnu assembler is not the x86 -foo(%bar,%baz,4) thing
it's that in arm assembly comments are introduced with an "@", and immediates with a "#"
