Yes, it takes work, it's like learning how to dance, draw, or paint. My emacs config is literally 64183 lines of elisp + 2356 snippets (just checked), so I'm not really considering a major editor switch at this point.

I've used VS code as well, it's fine for what it does and certainly much more beginner friendly.

Or they just don’t want to… I love my kids but I would prefer work to the tedium of dealing with small children or an infant any day. Most men I know just aren’t wired with the ability to tolerate child care. The last few years of “wokeness” can’t undo a few hundred thousand years of evolutionary biology.

[The Zero Rupee Note is] cute, but has it really had the intended effect? I can’t imagine someone expecting a bribe to bat an eye at this.

Edit: That said, I’d love something like this for tips in restaurants when there service is below par. It would provide a passive aggressive way to let the server know their service was poor without drawing attention to them or you. It would be easy to slip into the rest of the tip.

Your kids have the right to everything you own (including your name) by default unless you take steps to change that, say using a will or estate.

Yes, I know, I'm saying that it should not be that way. Rights to your likeness should end at your death unless you specifically write down otherwise.

Well, thanks for the confidence; you did hit the nail on the head. I haven't taken a real vacation in 20 years, although I did live in vans and hostels for 10 of those years. For peace of mind, I maintain a set of PGP files signed and keyed to each of my clients which I flippantly tell them to open "if I get hit by a bus", that contain all the SSH keys and details needed to get to their source files / DBs / webservers, extra code hints and lots of juicy advice for whatever unfortunate developer takes over after my demise. (Including poo poo like, this software is way too old, rewrite it).

If you saw what I write you'd say I was a 20x coder, but that's just from a youngin's perspective. I've been writing code since 1988. The basic value proposition for my clients is that they know I'll die at some point, but it's way cheaper and more efficient to pay one guy they know will get it done, and take the risk they'll have to scramble for someone else in less than 10 years (at which point they'll likely have to rewrite anyway). Also, the poo poo I write mostly maintains itself. I'm proud to say that my software in 24/7 production has had no actual crashes in years other than the occasional forced server upgrade. If I died, it would take awhile to notice if they didn't keep asking me for new features.

OK little mister 27days year old account against my deep 15 years on the site?

Uhm, lets explain you about what you actually know about Palantir, there SWWAG that was all over the SFBay, on bart, busses, bikes, bags, shirts, etc...

and what about their absolute oval office of a CEO talking about LSD pops to his understanding of tech and etc...

You, have 27days on this account... Maybe you are HIDING? behind something?

I HAVE been OPEN on HN for DECADES.

I dont hide behind any of my comments. EVER. Dang and Saltman, and even loving PG can claim when they called me out.

So call me out bitch with data.

Let me tell you about the time I called out others with DATA on SYSTEMS AND FACILITIES I ACTUALLY WAS ON THE DESIGN TEAM OF!. and got "cease and desisted" on loving HN.

I am so tired of pricks who think they know.

If I reveealed every secret on HN that I know first hand, I would probably puke.

WHY THE gently caress Cant a mfr such as apple develop the most advanced upgrade modality known to man:

In the 1st world: sell the high-end machines.

Make the keyboard and screen and input and memory as High-End as possible.

As tech evolves, allow these to be slot level inserts.

I dont need a new chassis, KVM.

In fact:

MAK THE loving THING A KVM OUT OF THE GATE!

I slot in my guts, but I keep the same KVM chassis and form factor. Period.

Why is this hard to understand...?

Ship the guts to other places...

They have been simply "proven right" because gently caress YOU THATS WHY...

Which was the premise of my comment (OP)

Anyone who wants to dismiss BS with simply "Because they did so, gently caress you" is an ignorant fool.

Such, we see the questions.

I watched the video with great interest, then immediately downloaded a copy from YouTube when I first saw it, because I was sure it wasn't going to be around later in the day to show my friend. I assumed it would get struck by YouTube, but here we are.

This lead me to realize that I'm now habituated to an environment where telling the truth seems like a forbidden act.
