    Sure you do! The OP should be blocked for "Atrocious Grammar".

    Ah, good old Docky. It's from the dev who made uBlock. Some quick info here:
    It's, in my experience, quite a bit faster than NoScript, so I ditched NS for UM. However, it doesn't have all the functionality that NS does (and vice versa), so it depends on what you want to achieve security/privacy wise.

    Always a great feeling when you're done with the whole setup process. What dock are you using btw? (Also, you might want to check out uMatrix as a replacement for NoScript.)

    I agree with what you have presented here.

    Thank you. I try to be respectful to everyone. There is no reason to be disrespectful to someone just because that person has a different viewpoint from you.

    Yeah, there can be a lot to creating even simple graphics from code, then having to animate the graphics. Once you get the concepts down, like matrix transformations, it gets easier. It can be really rewarding actually seeing the results, though. Then, really fun manipulating it to get it all just how you want. This seems to be what would be important for your use.

    Haha, I don't know much about Rust, but I've seen good things, claiming it to be a "better" C. We used Java back in university which was good for learning data structures and algorithms, but it'd really only do you any good in the enterprise which needs the reliability of the language more than being enjoyable and efficient.

    Ah, that's really cool. It's been a while since I've looked into it, but I think there are also some good services out there that make it easier to create a multiplayer game without needing your own server.

    Yeah, mostly C# and Objective-C. Once you get the main principles/theories down, it becomes fairly easy to pick up different languages. I think that can be part of the fun, learning the various grammars and syntaxes and creating something out of it.

    Nice. What kind of game are you wanting to make? Seems to be a common reason to get deeper into programming since it's a fun way of creating something out of it. I've been meaning to get back into it as a hobby, personally.

    Ha, I can understand that. Curly braces have become important for me with respect to readability for scope. Semicolons aren't really as necessary.

    What got you into learning Rust?

    Couldn't agree more. There you're getting into three political blocs in our culture - business, labor, politics - that serve as checks and balances. When politics dominates, fascism. When labor dominates, communism.

    And the narrative in America has long been that business - capitalism - defeated both fascism and communism. There's truth to that, but only in serving as one of the necessary checks. And the result of that narrative is the (false) belief that capitalism is a *moral* choice in our culture. Policies should be judged solely based on profit, efficiency, and so forth. Overestimating the *virtue* of capitalism has had an absolutely corrosive effect on our culture.

    It was a graduation speech he gave a couple of years before he died. It makes the rounds on the internet around graduation time, but it is the best summary of the challenge of thinking about meaning that I've seen. Shortened from the full version, excuse the video:

    Yeah, I think just thinking about meaning, and being purposeful in your choices, has value in and of itself. You've seen the "This is Water" speech by David Foster Wallace, yeah?

    this, I've been trying to think of a way to start a thread in P&CE about it, know it will devolve but still interested in responses.

    Thanks it makes me laugh whenever I see it due to context in Durarara!
