welcome to 2020 in a nutshell

software horror 

My system is currently idling at 22 GiB mem in use (excluding 20 GiB of buff/cache). Electron overload.

disorganized thoughts 

The past does not repeat itself. The past does not have the ability to make decisions. We see the past, normalize it, and decide to continue because that is how it has always been. We can have nice things. We just choose not to.

Like this, things are picked up and incorporated. Removing things is much harder. But what is the difference between adding and adding the absence of something?

Also, who are "We"? What is "nice"? What are "things"? What is the past but just a former present?

I remain convinced that power grids in the US are fundamentally broken.


The inconsistencies of vectors with the rest of the LLVM type system continue to be annoying to deal with. You can use insertvalue for structs or arrays, but no, not for vectors. You need insertelement for vectors, which accepts a variable offset. And you cannot use variable offsets on arrays. Meh.


Old proposal to add a web browser to the C++ STL

Yes. You read that correctly.

"Is it more important to be safe, or is it more important to be happy?"

Happy. Are you fucking kidding me? Happy. There's never any actual promise of safety, so why water life down?

I’m never not thinking about the AbstractSingletonProxyFactoryBean, which is a convenient proxy factory bean superclass for proxy factory beans that create only singletons
