Macros can be useful but I feel like we should ban certain people from touching them.
For example, imagine if someone were to use the C preprocessor to create an elaborate object orientation system for C, calling it GObject, and then create an entire graphics stack up to and including a desktop environment, called, say, GNOME.
I think that's the kind of person who should no longer be allowed to use the C preprocessor.
I think the most important lesson to learn from free software is that after people have enough money to put food on the table they're willing to put time into something with no monetary benefit

Like if I read this somewhere, like on a forum or smth, I’d be thinking like “that’s pretty funny but there’s no way that actually happened”.
I don’t remember if I ever posted this, so I’ll say it again just in case:
My grandfather is very conservative, and he’s driven 18 wheelers his whole life. Once, when he was very drunk, he got upset about new trucks that had backup cameras, and, I shit you not, blamed their existence on Democrats. This is always the kind of thing that I expected him to say, but let me tell you I was still amazed when I heard it come out of his mouth.
Whatever it is I probably did it
GPG is complaining about some "dirmngr" but I'm too tired to figure out what's wrong rn
I love how it has "YAK." at the bottom. Like it's in caps but you can tell they're not yelling. It's just that refined.
this is so majestic
me: frantically searching "how many yaks does it take to make a smol yurt."
Oh wait I guess they can wait an arbitrary amount of time before the ACK, and it acknowledges everything to that point. Ignore me
