So there's a fox every hour bot and a bunny every hour bot... and I'm hoping they never cross paths.

What technology achievement would you like to see before dying? For me would be the clonation of a woolly mammoth.

It's ok for toots to be unchangeable, but there should exist an option to add aclarations and more content to a toot (without changing the original). This new toot 'post-scriptum' should appear exactly after the toot, marked specially.

Ah, one of my favorite IRC clients... Microsoft Chat!

How to Get Fired Using Switch Statements and Statement Expressions 

https://triptico.com/links/how-to-get-fired-using-switch-statements-statement-expressions.html

An orchard of batshit insane things done using the switch C keyword. For example, co-routines:

#include <stdio.h> #define coroutine_begin() static int state=0; switch(state) { case 0: #define coroutine_return(x) { state=__LINE__; return x; case __LINE__:; } #define coroutine_finish() } int get_next(void) { static int i = 0; coroutine_begin(); while (1){ coroutine_return(++i); coroutine_return(100); } coroutine_finish(); } int main(void){ printf("i is %d\n", get_next()); /* Prints 'i is 1' */ printf("i is %d\n", get_next()); /* Prints 'i is 100' */ printf("i is %d\n", get_next()); /* Prints 'i is 2' */ printf("i is %d\n", get_next()); /* Prints 'i is 100' */ return 0; }

Jonathan Corbet:

"[...] timestamps in this filesystem are now good through 2468. Developers now have clear warning of a problem coming in 448 years, but chances are they will procrastinate on addressing it for at least 440 of them."
