my Pinephone Convergence Pack just arrived!
the DHL guy enjoys coming early while i'm still sleeping

Whats this? a DHL notification?
Pinephone is coming \o/

@jens thankfully my code doesnt need to distinguish between graceful or not, does the same thing in both cases.

Accustomed to closing the client and servers the hard way during development I totally forgot to handle graceful disconnections and went crazy trying to understand what was going on. And I call myself a network programmer, ha.

the same field using uint64 and uint32 in different places. what a horrifying view.

reached an important milestone tonight in my game server project, time to sleep.

programming sleepy, fighting both the code and my eyes.

@spalger if its public the entire fediverse can see it in the Federated timeline, but theres too much noise there. the Local timeline here in fosstodon is way more calm so probably a lot of people (theres like 11k accounts?) will actually read it.

@spalger you can select the visibility before sending the message so it doesnt appear publicly

Distributed systems and massive orchestration is fun (and frustrating).

I just remembered the tool I wrote when I was working at Gameloft to avoid the pain managing AWS when doing stress tests.
A couple of simple C# programs that let me orchestrate hundreds of VMs semiautomatically and see realtime stats of every one of them in a nice GUI on my PC.
Those were fun times. And it was Aperture Science thematic!

I take back what I said, it was just me being dumb not knowing who to interpret the data.

I'm trying to profile my allocations in Tracy, but all I get is a noisy list of allocations made by Tracy itself (with a pinch of my own here and there), dammit.

GitHub "Explore" recommendations were a nice way of finding interesting projects. Since Microsoft acquired it that feature became worse and worse and now its totally useless.
What a shame

@jrballesteros05 in theory the warehouse is here, so hopefully the courier just comes walking with it

just bought a Pinephone CE, now to sit and wait for it.

took a couple hours to integrate the Tracy profiler into my C++ project. very smooth experience and great results. this is gonna be much better than a lot of printf()s
