why is postgresql so miserable to use

@crzwdjk@mastodon.social avatar

@whitequark Apparently databases are supposed to be complex beasts which require arcane incantations and their own priestly class to attend to them.

All shading languages suck.
Moreover, they’re an outdated concept and they’re failing us.

@gob I think you make some good points but I don't agree with your conclusion, you're not going to convince artists to learn C++. On the other hand, it makes sense to have both sides of the CPU-GPU communication be in one language. Maybe what we need is better language interop, and better mechanisms of modularity.

crzwdjk,
@crzwdjk@mastodon.social avatar

@gob Well and oftentimes the people making the engine and the people using it are in entirely different organizations. Meanwhile one of the big things keeping GLSL alive is shadertoy, makes it really easy to learn the language and play around with stuff.

HOW TO USE GIT

SOME SAMPLE INVOCATIONS

git submodule update
Do nothing.

git submodule update --recursive
Do nothing.

git submodule update --init --recursive
Do nothing.

git submodule sync && git submodule update --init --recursive
Do nothing.

git submodule sync --recursive && git submodule update --init --recursive
Update the submodules to be correct for the current commit.

crzwdjk,
@crzwdjk@mastodon.social avatar

@mcc ./update_dependencies.py however works on both. And that's why I haven't switched to submodules on the project that I maintain.

Another good piece of news that neither NYS DOT nor #Amtrak's press office want to tell you about. Gosh, this is so sad that we run our railroads this way.

This elevator is making me think - all the elevators I keep seeing here on the U-Bahn have doors open in one direction on the street and the opposite direction on the platform, even when it's possible to have same-direction opening as is the norm in most buildings. Is this an intentional decision to allow wheelchair users to get in and out without reversing direction?

crzwdjk,
@crzwdjk@mastodon.social avatar

@Alon Yes, it's also just more convenient for everyone else in general.

@whitequark Setup music has a much smaller range of notes but it's always got two played at a time.

SSD stands for "solid state drive".

That makes no sense. What is being driven?
I know it's from hard drive,. or floppy drive, where a disk was being spun.

"reboot the train, which takes ca. 10 minutes" is so cursed

crzwdjk,
@crzwdjk@mastodon.social avatar

@whitequark What's kind of cursed here is that the trains can actually operate on 0 Hz electricity (DC) but of course that's a different mode and it goes through a different circuit.

crzwdjk,
@crzwdjk@mastodon.social avatar

@whitequark Yeah specifically those models, they run on routes that have both AC and DC electrification (Thameslink and the tunnel to Moorgate)

This was really weird because over the 23 hour period I sent like 3 additional messages and it showed my messages with no apparent errors just none of the responses were visible. Moreover I was having bidirectional conversations with no issues in other windows. But nothing coming from Whitequark was coming through. That is a very, very bad failure mode for a IM client. I expect IM clients will have failure modes but I expect I don't have to watch out for this one. https://mastodon.social/@whitequark/112355001355211609

For maximum security, your passwords should always be long strings of the characters "l" and "I" exclusively. That way, any attacker who gets hold of your password will be so confused trying to type it in they will not be able to gain access. For additional security, add an occasional numeral 1

i’m trying to figure out what annoys me about this ad, and i think it’s making the public landscape even more unintelligible for the vast majority of people.

crzwdjk,
@crzwdjk@mastodon.social avatar

@lzg Because in this case the "language" is meant to be understood by a small group who have disproportionate wealth, whereas actual minority languages are generally spoken by people without much power?

    @mcc There are various examples where even without disputed territory, people in a state are not citizens of said state, even if they were born there. Though generally they at least have some option for acquiring citizenship, which as I understand it Palestinians from the territories do not.

    is assembly language (for the sake of argument, x86 assembly as understood by an assembler released by intel) typed?

    crzwdjk,
    @crzwdjk@mastodon.social avatar

    @whitequark It's a pretty weak type system but it's there, the thing is that it does implicit bitcasts between types. Though it even has for example different pointer types.

    It's amazing how much difference a six minute average time to catch a bus vs a sixteen minute average time to catch a bus makes to outright loving vs hating a public transit system

    crzwdjk,
    @crzwdjk@mastodon.social avatar

    @mcc Studies have shown that time waiting for a transit vehicle feels some 2-3x longer than time spent on said vehicle.

    New York-Philadelphia with a stop at Newark can be done in 46 minutes, with only within-right-of-way work plus straightening the Frankford Junction S-curve (which only costs around half a minute of trip time anyway).

    @Alon Not even Elizabeth, and assuming 60 mph through the tunnels but an improved Penn approach?

    @julienbarnoin@mastodon.gamedev.place avatar

    I've been working a lot with for a while now, writing complex code. Overall, I feel like the single improvement that would make the most difference for the language would be support for pass-by-reference instead of copy in/copy out syntax, as suggested here https://github.com/KhronosGroup/GLSL/issues/84

    This would make it possible to do a lot of things that are either not possible or ridiculously inefficient to compile, including object oriented programming.

    crzwdjk,
    @crzwdjk@mastodon.social avatar

    @julienbarnoin @gfxstrand I can't really actively work on too much improvement, we're only funded to to maintenance. But if you take a look at the issues in the GLSL repo, that would give you a good idea of what people want. In addition to the stuff already mentioned here, I think a separate compilation model and eventually language interop would be useful (and pass by reference would help there too).

    crzwdjk,
    @crzwdjk@mastodon.social avatar

    @julienbarnoin @gfxstrand Cramming specialization into glslang will be interesting but ultimately necessary I suppose.
