everyone says you're not meant to put binaries in your git repos but what about putting enbies in your git repos is that okay?

I've been using and liking fish for about 3 years now, but I noticed some downsides (not POSIX compliant so some things you wanna source or copy-paste at times don't work), so I'm wondering: what would you recommend?

The worst mug in the world, ukpol 

I need others to suffer with me on this one, sorry.

Fun fact, the UTF8 encoded form of the trans flag is 16 bytes long, so it's a good choice if you need an 16 byte magic number.

In hex it is:

f0 9f 8f b3 ef b8 8f e2 80 8d e2 9a a7 ef b8 8f

fellow enbies! i have a poll. please share it with ur enby pals so we can collect information

if nulls were a billion dollar mistake, having database IDs be represented as just integers is a half billion dollar mistake

we're still using pointers that can silently corrupt data and return invalid results, and we actually got worse by removing all type information about what they point to

at least C pointers segfault (sometimes) if you mess them up

Trying to start a community (I've made a thing) :boost_ok: 

matrix.to/#/!voGTLeLLNNkuZLmhw

Starting out on Matrix, but I guess more to be added later.

If you like time attacking and want people to talk to about it all, and breaking records, and all that. Maybe you play a niche game and there's nobody to celebrate achievements or despair with. Come over here, we're friendly!

(Please boost this, because I'm mostly doing this because *I* need people to talk to...)

idea: language with a bit as the base unit of address, so you can have pointers to individual bits, have structs made up out of, for example, a 4 bit field and a 2 bit field.

Data structures would also all need to support bit level sizes for objects.
