Is it morally permissible to have a bot to retrigger CI until it either succeeds or the same test fails three times in a row?

I'm asking for a ... not entirely deterministic pipeline.

I want a VIm-version of Clippy. "It looks like you used 7 keys to go down to line 8 Y U NO 7j?!?"

Just a flashing red box with the optimal key sequence for what I last did would be fine. But annoyed Clippy will probably teach faster.

Idea: What if a spectrogram of music was wound up in a spiral, so that each turn was exactly 1 octave and all the other intervals were also at predefined angles? I think it looks pretty interesting!

A certain multi-national today learned the hard way that the bus factor for fixing their production DBs is about 1.

Maybe I should raise my rate. production cluster is life \o/

This wind-powered vehicle that can go faster than the wind still continues to blow my mind:

Achievement unlocked:
✓ Build a bitmap of std::variant members M on which a given type T implements T::operator () (const M &);

Or in other words, the log ingester will only call the parser for commands it actually cares about.

Spread the word...
EU, which pretended to protect privacy plans to betray whole society and approved mass surveillance in communication online.
In this dark future everyone would be affected.
