in reply to Programmers are weird

Don't think I can top yours, demerphq, but let's see:
  • she-bang actually means something specific, not (w)hole
  • interpreters are essential for everyday life
  • we work really hard to be really lazy
  • the deeper we go, the simpler our code
  • cursing isn't enough; we must recurse
  • it isn't enough to quote something; when we double-quote it it's going to end up saying something else
  • saving context means spending your stack

ummm... what's funny about 42?

    42? From The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. It's the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything (“what is 6 times 9”, correct in base 13). For other Random Numbers click the link.

    if ( 1 ) { $postman->ring() for (1..2); }

[marto]: what a mess
[karlgoethebier]: perhaps i need a zerial?
[Corion]: marto: Heh - I think that's a nice contractual trap, "you will not use other gods/engines besides ours" ;)
[Corion]: But if the base intention was to have CIG as "co-developers" who (have to) contribute changes back to the mainline, it makes sense to have them use no other engine
[marto]: yes, I hear that development house has been on its last legs for a couple of years now
[Corion]: Is anybody aware of what makes Android Oreo better than Android Nougat? I'm not sure if the architectural changes (etc) are there already that make upgrading an Oreo-kernel phone to a newer Android userland (Lineage OS) version feasible
[Corion]: Yeah, CryTek got blindsided (or whatever) by Unity and Unreal Engine being zero cost, and the CryTek documentation being bad/nonexistent I think
