  1. @oracle I know that feeling, and then I finished it and installed bob's mods. That game broke me.

  5. @oracle Boy do I have some stories for you people. Life is a journey. Hard to explain, but 3 years and a 1000 miles changes a lot about how you see the world.

  11. @oracle It's just me. I hate shopping for clothing (trousers, shoes, jackets especially) and furniture is that but 100 times worse.

  14. @oracle Because I wanted to use a site? I wanted others to be able to use a site? These people complain that people are leaving their site?

  15. @oracle I saved up some money that I can pay the kitchen all at once. I'd not pay for anything on credit if I don't have to.

  17. @oracle I'm a big fan of the Allman style. My visual perception works better with this style (except for the space between function identifier and parameter list braces). I don't even worry indenting too much. If I have to indent a lot of levels then it's clear that I have to refactor the code block into a separate method. I barely get over the 80 character line. Even if I do cross that line I try to keep it at least below 100.

  19. @oracle For real, dude. If delivery is that much a hassle, I could pick it up, maybe.

  20. @oracle Evidently I am! I was actually thinking more of how Duolingo has a progress percentage, or "X many semesters (out of Y, maybe)." But heck, there is a test!

  22. @oracle Awesome! How far along are you? (like there's a meaningful percent grade or something, wth me?)

  24. @oracle I definitely think the standards for piloting a kinetic bombardment device through populated areas should be more stringent, as well.

  25. My honest opinion is that the general public should not be instructed with ability to drive, or at the very least, the privilege should require stricter testing standards. People (humans as a whole) are not as intelligent as we perceive ourselves to be. We are stupid, dull, prideful, creatures that make terrible judgments at the expense of all others.

  26. @oracle Using and feeling comfortable with, sorry. I know a few people who feel that cruise control s dangerous and takes control away from them. I was hopeful that younger people would be more open to the idea, but many of my classmates are strongly opposed to the idea.

  27. @oracle Which is why I no longer like programming for Windows, I prefer LTS style environments when publishing packaged software (for the convenience of the customer)

  28. @oracle I don't have A/C either (except for the car). https://i.imgur.com/l28HtKb.png At work it's similar (also no A/C) but I don't have any thermometers there. It won't be any cooler in the next days. On Monday it'll be 35°C. I guess I'll be going earlier from work to continue sweating at home.

  29. @oracle Yeah, and I usually do OK with them, I guess, lately... But today hit too hard and fast to even try, I was at 98% and tunnel-visioning and I just absolutely HAVE to get this done RIGHT NOW because otherwise I am a GORRAM QUITTER and WHAT WOULD MY MOTHER THINK... :-/ Still working at it. I have a small sand timer for periodic meditative breaks. But none of that makes the office less of a constant and absolute press, none of it actually fixes the problem, all of it starts feeling like a complete waste of time, and sometimes even trying to relax feeds the rage.

  30. @oracle I've liked me a car-warmed Gatorade before, and warm Dr. Pepper used to be a widespread thing, it makes total sense.
