What makes me think of this is I make a podcast which leaves me with dozens of folders and files with a regular naming scheme and a set of dynamic symlinks along the lines of "open the folder with the raw audio for the highest numbered episode that has recordings" would make navigating through it all in Gnome a little nicer.

@ghost_bird Yeah I think I'll just delete that example and replace it with one more like what I was actually thinking of. You make a good point. It's a particularly bad example.

@ghost_bird I didn't say it would be useful. It's just a passing thought. Though I was thinking of it really being more for dynamically linking folders when navigating with a GUI file browser like Gnome. The Python example was just because it was easy to describe.

concept that is potentially reckless: dynamic symlinks. Instead of just being a pointer to another file or directory every time you access it it runs a small script to determine what it is going to point to.

mention of a type of horrific mutilation 

I just remembered the concept of "degloving" (do not google it) and every muscle in my body tensed up at once

The state has successfully gone back in time and altered my birth certificate.

YOU: so the A in RAID stands for "Array"?
US: Yes.
YOU: doesn't that mean saying "RAID array" is redundant?
US: Of course. That's what the R is for.

Is there a way to set up LineageOS/Android to automatically turn off bluetooth and wifi if they're not connected to anything for five minutes?

@wolf480pl Thank you very much for taking the time to explain it to me!

@eqe @wolf480pl @SuricrasiaOnline I'm afraid I'm not familiar with C so this is hard to parse for me. Most my coding experience is higher level stuff like C# and Python.

I know that an asterisk indicates that you're referencing a pointer. So given a pointer p that references 32 bit unsigned integer and another pointer q that references an integer one higher than q...

then you've lost me.

@SuricrasiaOnline I'm curious what "array[i] == i[array]" is referring to specifically but search engines are not equipped for that kind of query.

@hyperlinkyourheart well they're new, give them a few years

my new manager expects me to have ambition

I think I'm going to call Snolf Robo Blast 2 done. I'm happy with how it is.

dream diary, body horror-ish 

I had many strange dreams last night but the details of most of them are already gone. The one that stands out was where I had a pain in my big toe and when I looked there was a huge gap between my toe and toenail and somehow there was a family of periwinkles living in there and I had to pull them out.
