Superman III is the greatest hacker movie ever made. Also probably the most realistic one.

TFW you launch an app and even before you do you know first thing it’s gonna do is download an update.

I’d love to see but no cinemas show it.

Why is there the need for a distributor? Couldn’t a motivated small indie cinema just deal with the producer directly to get showing rights?

Array#poop: drops an unspecified number of items from the array. Should be used together with Stream#flush.

There is a scene in the new Aladdin movie where princess Jasmine explains to her father that she wants to become the next sultan and he mentions that that was unheard of.
I’m not sure kids nowadays understand that he means a woman being sultan (from the context it could just as well have been an unmarried person becoming sultan, or someone that young, etc.). Or if they do then only from movies whose plot is women doing things previously reserved for men.
Am I too optimistic?

@frumble Ich glaub der Unterschied zwischen Schweizerdeutsch und anderen alemannischen Dialekten liegt vor allem in der Betonung. Zumindest wenn ich einen Artikel der alemannischen Wikipedia laut vorlese, kommt astreines Schweizerdeutsch dabei raus…

@frumble Also ich hab noch nie ne deutsche Mundart gehört, die ich nicht verstanden hätte (wobei es immer mal wieder Wörter gibt, die so hyperlokal sind, dass man sie nachschlagen muss). Interessanterweise habe ich mit gewissen schweizer Dialekten fast mehr mühe.

I quite like music but could never add it to my music library because with its weird casing it’d just look wrong next to all other music…

For some reason git decided to switch the editor from vim to nano and I feel about as lost as other people do when using vim.

Most of the time I’m pretty happy with TypeScript. But there are days where it fails me. And when it does, it does so on multiple levels all at once.

I still can’t get over the fact that Mozilla copied Microsoft’s XMLHTTPRequest as XMLHttpRequest and didn’t notice (or care about) the inconsistent casing.

Which is the most correct?

Für mich machen all die Fußballbeispiele im Text voll Sinn. Aber genau deshalb würde ich mich auch nie trauen, öffentlich über Fußball zu sprechen.

So no longer offers free year-long email validation certs for S/MIME. Now you only get 30 days. That’s pretty useless. Someone needs to do for S/MIME what has done for domain validation.

Or, you know, I could just go with the flow and switch to PGP…

#privacy is the freedom to act without being watched and thus, in a sense, to be who we really are — not who we want others to think we are. nytimes.com/2019/04/10/opinion

Ein riesiger bürokratischer Aufwand, um 50 Franken zurückzuzahlen. Kann ich als Haushalt da auch ein Opt-Out machen (und nochmehr bürokratischen Aufwand generieren)? Zumindest solange dann der Bund meine 50 Franken nicht in neue Kampfjets investiert?
