the reason why i say voting for Good People rather than abstaining is something that should be up to individuals, rather than a “mandatory” thing, is exactly the reason finland’s govt fell, and partially why bolsonaro was elected and so on

we elect/support left-wing (in name) governments, they fuck over people, the people react by rising against it, and then they vote for/support the right wing who are given the easiest propaganda ever by just saying “the status quo sucks”

it just means that the new left-statists later get replaced by rightists and all youve done is spend years expending energy on a failed project

« Lift up your hearts above the present and look with eyes of faith into the future! Today the seed is sown, the grain falls upon the earth, but behold the day will come when it shall rise a glorious tree and the branches thereof shall be laden with fruit. Rejoice and be glad that this day has dawned, try to realize its power, for it is indeed wonderful! God has crowned you with honor and in your hearts has He set a radiant star; verily the light thereof shall brighten the whole world! »

@jalcine Could I get a link?

@charlag I don't think specification pages are a good measure of complexity. Though it indicates and visualises a trend, which is all I needed for my post. Kind of like counting lines of code, which are a bad measure sure, but it's still useful if you are aware of the limitations.

@alcinnz I agree, it's just that a lot of people don't seem to see it that way? I saw a lot of people praising it for its simplicity.

ECMAScript's specification grew from ~100 pages of specification in edition 1 to ~750 pages in edition 10.
How exactly isn't the same thing going to happen to WebAssembly? Sure, maybe it's easy to implement now, but how will the story look like in just 10 years? These are the features that are already planned right now: https://webassembly.org/docs/future-features/

« The mystic and wondrous Bride, hidden ere this beneath the veiling of utterance, hath now, by the grace of God and His divine favor, been made manifest even as the resplendent light shed by the beauty of the Beloved. I bear witness, O friends! that the favor is complete, the argument fulfilled, the proof manifest and the evidence established. Let it now be seen what your endeavors in the path of detachment will reveal. In this wise hath the divine favor been fully vouchsafed unto you and unto them that are in heaven and on earth. All praise to God, the Lord of all Worlds. »

The Sims, death of virtual characters Show More

I’m doing the Legacy Challenge in The Sims 4, and my founder may literally die of old age at any moment. I’m not ready for her to go. To make it even harder, over the last few days she’s been autonomously spending time hacking servers to get money for the family. Cemented her as a real badass, imo.

Are there any tools or has anyone worked on the idea of...I'm not sure how to call it..'centralized posting'? Like, I want to have blog posts and still have interaction on social media sites without having to repost / link in 185 different places. Like a centralized way to handle your online presence, but not like just a tool which takes something and makes a bunch of different versions of it. I'm not even super sure what that would look like, and maybe this is just me getting older, but I'm tired of logging into so many different places to do, splitting up my online self into a bunch of different fragments, when I'm just one person.

I'm not sure that made sense.

« Therefore, to be a Christian is not merely to bear the name of Christ and say, “I belong to a Christian government.” To be a real Christian is to be a servant in His Cause and Kingdom, to go forth under His banner of peace and love toward all mankind, to be self-sacrificing and obedient, to become quickened by the breaths of the Holy Spirit, to be mirrors reflecting the radiance of the divinity of Christ, to be fruitful trees in the garden of His planting, to refresh the world by the water of life of His teachings—in all things to be like Him and filled with the spirit of His love. »

"And know thou that He indeed resembleth the sun. Were the risings of the sun to continue till the end that hath no end, yet there hath not been nor ever will be more than one sun; and were its settings to endure forevermore, still there hath not been nor ever will be more than one sun. It is this Primal Will which appeareth resplendent in every Prophet and speaketh forth in every revealed Book. It knoweth no beginning, inasmuch as the First deriveth its firstness from It; and knoweth no end, for the Last oweth its lastness unto It."

"Every word is endowed with a spirit, therefore the speaker or expounder should carefully deliver his words at the appropriate time and place, for the impression which each word maketh is clearly evident and perceptible. The Great Being saith: One word may be likened unto fire, another unto light, and the influence which both exert is manifest in the world."
