@jasper @sotolf usually Jira tickets or commit history of the file do the trick. At least for me.

@ch1r0x@metalhead.club @sotolf writing good commit messages is an art itself.

@sotolf you have version control for that! Never ever leave commented out code in the source :blobcat:

I spent the last few days implementing a language interpreter at work. Its an healthcare specialized language.
Working with parsers and syntax trees made me curious about developing my own general purpose language :ablobcatbongo:

@joeligj12 I still type width instead of with... It is probably because in Italy we pronounce them almost the same... I'm doomed!

@sakkara Java without IDE is sort of a nightmare. I use Intellij Idea Ultimate as my daily driver at work (payed by the company), the Community Edition at home... Neovim for all the other languages (Go, Rust, C...).
Any reasonably sized Java project is almost impossible to tackle without an IDE.

Why a lot of people abuses the sensitive content feature marking whatever image as sensitive?

@renniezen I will. Still I'll need to go back to Google maps every time I'm outside the center of Rome...

@yyp I spent the whole weekend implementing a parser and an AST for a DSL. My brain is stuck in recursive loops :blobcatdizzy:

I want to move away from maps to , but the lack of street numbers on many areas makes it unusable for me. :blobcatsadlife:

@danny @hund I do that everytime as well 😅
Other than that, the only think I miss from ff is the Bitwarden extention. I have the script, but it's not quite the same thing.

@comcloudway One service asked for a scan of my ID to delete the account (which I refused).

@Little__Ham yeah, been there as well. Not to count all the services with non working email changing procedure and services which have separate mailing list databases so that even if you change the email, you still receive mails to the old address...

I regret having opened so many accounts on services here and there when I was less privacy concious. I still discover I have accounts on services I completely forgot and it is a pain to manually delete them... :ablobcatrainbow:

@sotolf I use Anki since about ten years ago. The biggest problem with SRS is that you are bound to it. For the algorithm to be effective, you have to show up every day, for years. Quite a commitment.

I used it quite a lot when learning Japanese, btw.

@hund my ex PM is a Swedish guy, covered in tattoos... we worked together in a quite "old school" company here in Italy, but nobody ever complained about his tattoos.
He was quite happy to live here in Rome, because appearently tattoos are cheaper here. :)

Keep that curiosity alive. Keep learning. You have the same amount of potential now as you did then.

The only difference is that your capacity to learn, and the resources extended to you, are far greater than when you were an child.

Use that capacity to its full potential.

You are far more capable than you yourself know.
