@takipid @typesafe I am the 20%
Unicode brings so many new options for censorship through character replacement. For instance: "sh💩t happens"Every time I hear "24 by 7 by 365" my dimension analysis checker crashes and my leap year validator raises an exception.
@bryanstearns @built Surprise…it's aguacate, not avocadoHey HP employees: typical San Francisco startup dress code is "Don't be naked. Unless there's a parade or a race. Then it's okay."Dear hackers, Now would be a good time to mail exploits on usb sticks to random Chrysler owners. reasons that escape me at the moment I spent all day unscientifically faking this #Pluto fly-around (with #haze).

If Trump picked a running mate in a "The Apprentice" style reality tv show, what tasks would veep contestants be asked to do? Discuss
@johndcook "is" vs "should be." English has so many complicated distinctions.OH: Occam's Taser: the most painful explanation is usually the correct one.

Retweeted by James Iry@havocp Just go straight for a wrist tattoo.People are raging because an open source project adopted a code of conduct. Others are raging because it’s not perfect. The Aristocrats!

@chrisamaphone Congratsamaphone!
And I urged them to make a golden app that would give me washboard abs and a trust fund, but no luck there either.

@extempore2 To repeat myself: WAT@extempore2 WATTrump says it would be cheap and easy to build a wall along US/Mexico border. But how much cheaper and easier to build a wall around Trump?"We just want a rough ballpark estimate." That's what they say before they rip their masks off and hiss "but you promised it would be done"
Let's all agree laundry icons are bullshit.
Retweeted by James Iry@deech BOLO YOLO would be a good name for a beerI just wrote "a endless." Maybe some day I'll learn a English.@mralancooper At this point I'm convinced you use TweetDeck just so you have a endless source of bitter tweets.@djspiewak @bodil If you think idiots can't be actively destructive you've forgotten a certain president we had 2 terms ago.@fogus No, not empathy! I was so close.People want big, loud syntax for the unfamiliar and terse syntax for the familiar

Retweeted by James IryFor every school child who lever earned about Pluto it was a small, featureless white ball. Until now.@extempore2 @wyattepp Rather than a mere type synonym@extempore2 @wyattepp Showing a clear lack of understand of what new type is about: a new type that, by the way, has the same representation@_sidverma @migueldeicaza And… now I think "pyrrhic shadenfreude" should totally be a thing.@wyattepp @extempore2 In other words, Go doesn't really have dimensions. Just something that looks vaguely like dimensions.@wyattepp @extempore2 If you multiply 5m by 2m you should get 10m^2 (an area), not 10m (a length).@wyattepp @extempore2 If you have 3m it should be legal to double it 6m. Go says no.Is it a firing offense if I spend all day today looking at pluto porn?New Horizons is 1.1 million km from the Pluto/Charon system - after 9 years in space, the probe is 22 hours to closest approach
Retweeted by James IryWhat happens when you put people who don't understand types in charge of type systems.

Retweeted by James IryJVM Backend and Optimizer in Scala 2.12 wrap that doesn't pop? New technology is bringing the end of times, my friends, the end of times. "I'm finally seeing the light at the end of the on-coming train."@justinesherry Partly a translation problem. Most langs have only a single title for adult women. Of course also a binary gender assumption.@jawher Faster isn't the primary driver. The primary driver is build reliability and resiliency.LMAO if your company doesn't use an internal repository as a caching proxy for external repositories.I love our IT department!
Retweeted by James Iry@extempore2 Think of massive eng efforts from a management perspective: individual brilliance is a SPOF for the success of the enterprise.
Retweeted by James Iry@extempore2 Google's engineering philosophy: hire brilliant people & dumb down/standardize their work so each eng is fungible with any other
Retweeted by James Iry@raganwald Related you say, “It’s in the wiki,” I hear: “RTFM. And good luck *finding* the FM. Loser.”
Retweeted by James Iry@fogus Just like GoGo: "Don't Let Confusing Parametric Polymorphism Get In The Way Of Writing The Same Data Structure Multiple Times!"Go : "New and Improved Java! Now With Even More Boilerplate!"@extempore2 "When I think about the nicest things Paul Phillips ever said about anyone, I uh....hmmm" - James IryDLC is 560 points.800 points costs $10 "Maybe if we make it confusing, people will spend more!"

Really it's about the ethics of building entire towers out of the tusks from an endangered species.@drmaciver (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻, QED@nviorres @headinthebox Tuples are "and" structures. That kind of API needs an "or" such as Either or Option/Maybe. Golang gets this wrongOh God, Someone Ran Fear and Loathing Through Google's Neural Network #deepdream
Retweeted by James Iry<equally inflammatory counter comment quoting the flame-bait> @headinthebox Checked exceptions are bad because they crash into reusability
@mbeisen @justinesherry No quinoa either. The goats are saying quinoa was over last season.Pro tip: If software is written in Go, it is not a strict requirement that "go" be part of its name.

This guacamole is so awesome. They made it garbanzos and paprika instead of avocados!Sometimes in IMs and texts instead of writing "ok" I write "kk". Suddenly nervous what'll happen if I accidentally press 3 times.Typical IM session: Hi James! - Hi! I have a question - Shoot Hope you don't mind - np Haha - What's up? Thanks for the time - :/@lqvdn Right now I'm really hoping you mean "building architects" 'cause otherwise I just … don't … even …"Let's cut to the chase" he said, hoping to get to the point quickly. But in my mind this started playing type coercion is a system whereby half of your semantic mistakes fail late, and the other half fail silently.
