we, humans, are naturally egoistic; this property, loosely speaking, is being encoded in our genes; it would be amazing if we learned to help other people egoistically, for our own good, as improving the society eventually benefits ourselves (much more than what we could otherwise imagine), being a circular action, coming and going around; being helpful around, and kind to your (!) neighbors treating them with respect works; if we can't change our nature, we're to refine it, for good

the qr operator for -es in returns a stringified Regexp object based on a (simple) scalar reference it seems, but why; i will lookup the entry (the image being a result of a handy experiment)

i think the language is very capable for building and organizing a complete software infrastructure, and it should grow (refactor itself) and not be reinvented (replaced) with new features (eg. error handling), syntax (ease of use), and performance (faster execution); i love, use, watch, follow, and learn it; it's awesome, and should remain as such over time (modernity)

through (a language) one can do web development (mojolicious), and user interface programming (tk) creating applications; access systems such as databases (dbi) and operating systems (eg. unix user management), do network programming (socket, dns, smtp), and many other really interesting things related to computers (eg. logging, date, automation, orm)

that's not fair deserves some love too (not being far from ); i've personally used it, and find it interesting esp. for experimental features; file system (neat and much unix-like), and the utility are among the authentic ones that i noted; it also works fine on desktop (with graphics on)

i prefer working on openbsd over freebsd because of niceties such as perl, xorg, tmux, cvs all already at hand without a need for installing packages or building ports; it is also interesting to note on netbsd, and now in freebsd becoming a default system scripting language

i think each has their own 'specialty', two kinds of that, one the general and well known: security, performance, portability, and scalability that is objective (applied respectively, in order); and personally i find openbsd's simplicity attractively comforting, and freebsd's wider support confident; and also it is informative to note that netbsd and freebsd can be considered somewhat of parents to the openbsd, and dragonfly; and that dragonfly is full of linuxisms, which makes it experimental

i occasionally think and are the two great ide's that one could ever need

one cannot cheat computers as they might cheat people, it requires study and understanding to achieve something successfully there, a good example of

exotic, probably mostly because of the syntax that is not braces/block-based in the currently c-family style dominated world of programming

in a in mind i sometimes sort the various dynamic languages as follows: perl/python (scripting/general), tcl/lua (embedded/control), php/ruby (web), lisp/haskell (functional/exotic) by area of use / ; among them i'm interested in , and to a lesser degree in ; there are probably many more interesting languages to discover and experiment on, but i see php and python having more success in the wild (workplaces/production), the latter of which i don't come to like at all

is there any regular show on software? i'm currently listening to weekly on

it'd be awesome to have a sync service to save (persist) settings (configuration) such as rss, filters, nntp, irc, accounts (imap), and preferences with /firefox account; extension does a great job for the -related (contacts, calendar, and tasks) ones

it would be great to see microblogging engines such as allowing to swipe posts to mark as read making them disappear, in effect cleaning the timeline (home) manually

i used to use on android as a news client, but it was significantly slower with fetching, and syncing multiple feeds, so i settled on which is faster, simpler, but with no cloud synchronization, although having import/export
