This is the kind of website I strive to design one day poolside.fm

I just started using Filmora9 by Wondershare to create videos for the class I teach. What an amazing product for only $70! If you need to do post-production on videos for YouTube and similar platforms, this is an excellent product at a bargain!

Any XFiles fans out there? Favorite episode...go!

Hi everybody, my name is Tanner, I'm a student and Sci-fi/Fantasy enthusiast who also really likes Linux. I'm running Kubuntu right now, but I've been looking at Fedora and also thinking about going down the Arch rabbit hole lol so we'll see where I am in a few weeks. Anyway, nice to meet y'all!

@cbush Hard to say. One of the thing is for sure: thanks to Google's adoption on Android, the language is here to stay. It has very exiting features like coroutines, native accessors and delegates. Java is getting old now and even though new features keep coming to the language, it doesn't evolve as fast as Kotlin. To me, the only thing that prevents its replacement by Kotlin is technical inertia and the inability for some devs to move out their comfort zone.

Government contracting is like teaching your 5 year old to ride a bicycle. They beg you to teach them to ride but fight you every step of the way.

@cbush I like the Hello Internet and Cortex podcasts. They've been pretty entertaining

@cbush I initially learned C and C++ and I don't get what Java tried to simplify. Especially after seeing how really Java could look if it was designed better i.e. C#.

Kotlin tries to fix it and still be compatible with existing Java code which allows a smooth transition for projects using it. It's great language.

@cbush Kotlin has been a blessing for us, it's a lot better than Java in a lot of little ways. Not saying it's good, just less annoying than Java in our experience.

@cbush
I think if Google tries to move away from Android with their Fuchsia project Kotlin will be the main language for developing Apps, and Java will be secondary.

Curious what people's take is on the future of Kotlin?

Wondering if you anyone has experience with Lucidchart? How does it compare with Visio? Any good alternatives?

The ability to say what is on one's mind is so tied into individual freedom and true liberty, that any attempt to curtail it by an external force is the violent theft of a man or woman's right to live free, but instead enslaves them to other peoples' opinions.

If a person thinks that censorship (silencing the voices) of those they disagree with is a good thing, then they are encouraging slavery of the masses to their viewpoints. And by doing silencing others, have become the slave masters.

@cbush this comes back to advertising dollars unfortunately. If "official news" posts generate more clicks and therefore more engagement/money for FB they will be promoted.
