Sized integer types and signedness, Stannum
"In the end of the day we are left with this horrible lot of types whose sizes are all different in different circumstances, and there is no any rule to choose one type over the other!"

😡 Dear so-called "social" websites.
Your catchword is "share", but you don't want us to share. You want to keep us within your walled gardens. That's why you've been removing RSS links from webpages, hiding them deep on your website, or removed feeds entirely, replacing it with crippled or demented proprietary API. FUCK YOU.

You're not social when you hamper sharing by removing feeds. You're happy to have customers creating content for your ecosystem, but you don't want this content out - a content you do not even own. Google Takeout is just a gimmick. We want our data to flow, we want RSS or #Atom feeds.

We want to share with friends, using open protocols: RSS, ATOM, XMPP, whatever. Because no one wants to have your service with your applications using your API force-feeding them. Friends must be free to choose whatever software and service they want.

We are rebuilding bridges you have wilfully destroyed.

Get your shit together: Put RSS/ATOM back in.

Object Oriented Programming is an expensive disaster which must end
Exhaustive, and exhausting, rant on OOP and FP.
If you ever need a reference to the distinctions, here's the place to go.

Takes 12 supposed advantages of OOP and shows the limitations.

akira on Twitter: "It is almost impressive how quickly we destroyed everything worth preserving."
Now that we have nothing left to fight for, we are utterly free to choose the path forward. There is nothing to hold us back.
Our advice to you: Save who you can. Ditch anyone who has chosen poorly. Do not get left behind. Do not look back.
Things are in fact very, very bad, and you should not be living in cities come the turn of the decade.
