--- Linux wants some hugs, and everyone gives a hug about it! ---
After the CoC controversy revolving around the Linux Kernel project, a change introduced by the CoC is being put into practice:
Jarkko Sakkinen, from Intel, started replacing words comments containing "fuck" with their "hug" variant. This means comments such as
/* master list of VME vectors -- don't fuck with this */
might look a bit different in the future:
/* master list of VME vectors -- don't hug with this */
People that oppose this change criticize that the comments will make much less sense to people that aren't fluent in English yet. They also do not like the redundant censoring - the actual meaning is still implied, just no longer included as clear text. It might also cause misunderstandings to people working with the code.
Those supporting this change, aside from jokingly mentioning that this change will save one character per f-word comment, note that this can give the Linux Kernel project a more positive feeling with anyone who works with the code, with "fuck" mostly associated with bad feelings, while "hug" is indeed mostly going to call positive feelings in our subconscious minds.
Who doesn't like a good hug? :)

Hello my Friends.
TL;DR i meditate as I draw, here’s the result. What about you?!
Does any of you exercise on any kind of meditation? Not the popular meditation forms, more alternative meditation? I. E. walking meditation, dancing meditation, reading medidation, etc. ? Remember, it’s all about being here and now and letting go of any pre-programmed thoughts, right?
I myself, have a ritual which is performes once-twice a year. I call it drawing meditation. When daylight ends, and the moon rises, I sit at my desk in a dark room with one light, which is hanging aboce the white sheet of paper. I take black pencil, turn on some music mildly and turn off my thought receiving part of the brain. I hear every thought which is passing by, but I have no attachment to it. My hands are drawing, without my interception. It feels amazing, and I believe this method helps me to clean up some space in subconscious file system.
This activity of mine, takes strangly short/long time. Once I’ve sat for about 16hours, once 6hours.
Furthermore, I’m always amazed by the abstract art pieces which are the end result. I’m attaching the image of the last drawing made in this way to the post.
Can I hear what you see in it?10
I received a call from my boss saying I was laid off while I was out.
Wait a minute... I actually just woke up... This was all a dream...
Wonder if it is a message from my subconscious though...
Anyone else dream they get fired?5
I'm doing some solo karaoking again but with some oldies that I haven't sung in probably 10-15 years. Not my usual song track.
And since I'm deaf, I can't hear the tune, just see the timed words. And just found it interesting the general tune can be recalled at first at all.
Then after a few times, I started remembering how some of the actual singers sound like. But still stumble a bit on some parts.
And then a few weeks. And I have another session and somehow I can pretty much lip sync it with all the emotions and almost perfectly I think.
I just found it strange and wanted to write this down somewhere while I still remember it. And I guess that's sorta the point. Feels like the mind/subconscious to remember things really well but recalling them at either the right moment or randomly....
Anyone else have similar experiences? Wanna share?3
Got asked to fix a bug at work. The code (react) looked like this:
file = form.file;
So i explained that the changes from setState are not adopted immediately etc. Then i take another look at the code and feel the pain in my head. You could shorten the code to:
Is there some subconscious need in the brain to make use of frameworks even though it makes no goddamn sense and "normal" programming is sufficient?
Used a starter to scaffold a new project. Have never used that starter before but it has more than 1400 starts on Github.
Two days after.... so far so good. The created project structure used some tools I haven't used before, some are good, others are not so good, but anyway I am towards the first release of my codes. I have done countless 'npm run build', 'npm run test', 'npm run fix', etc., but.... my fault, I haven't committed once since starting the project, thinking I would commit when the next function is implemented, next test case passed.... after all, what could go wrong anyway?
Finally, one last test case passed, I think I will commit and run 'npm publish'.... but wait, had a glimpse of the scripts section in package.json, there's a command named 'all'. An voice came out of nowhere was talking to my subconscious mind, "all.... build, lint, prettier, test..... yeah you should run all... it's another build script, the worst you can get is just some harmless error messages.....", and my fingers typed 'npm run all'...
Time stopped for a few seconds, file structure in project explorer was shifting, files & folders were disappearing & appearing, what's happening... and I looked at the 'all' script closely for the first time....
WHAT THE HELL, WHO SHOULD PUT 'git reset --hard' IN A BUILD SCRIPT WITHOUT ANY PROMPT????!!!!!!!
MY PLAN WAS TO COMMIT AND GO TO SLEEP, IT'S 1AM NOW!!! WHERE CAN I RECOVER THE LOST FILES????4
"I like jumping back and forth between a few different things to let my subconscious chew on one problem while my conscious works on something else." - Loren Brichter1
My previous boss. He is a very cool guy. He treat us lunch and dinner sometimes. We always have a conversation topic like existentialism and being in a subconscious state of mind, because most people I met is just very basic. He also owns an office where we are all working in. we watch porn together at night, gossip about hot girls nearby the office area and curse a lot. I love laid back person like him. Also he's humble as fuck.5
wk195 sounds like people are describing the weirdest places they had sex. Lmao, I'm sure this has gone through somebody's mind at one point.
Let's see, what else to vent about. Ah yes, today I took the public transport because I had to be somewhere in the evening and I wanted to avoid traffic congestion. Guess what? I ended up sandwiched between hordes of people in public transport. I hate that much more than sitting in my car dragging the clutch. At least I was somewhat relaxed and I had my own space (so to speak). Being smooshed between a horde of stressed people? And pushy people trying to ram their way through others "I have to get out, I have to get off here" while the others are clearly heading out too? No, that's not for me.
And I know what's gone through one's mind at one point: "Look at this sad state of the world, look at the highway inefficiently and disrespectfully stuffed, look at these people, most of them wearing sad looks on their faces from the routine of life and their subconscious dissatisfactions. The current system has many shortcomings. In fact, the entire system is wrong."
Well, I'm glad I'm home now. Space, temporal as well as physical and psychological, is indeed a core component of one's space (no pun intended). It's at times like these we need to look at our lives and make the necessary changes to change at least our own lives, there that the system is hard to change.4
I been practising lucid dreaming since a few years. It works and is amazing. Now I'm trying to use this moment of subconscious awareness to improve my ideas when sleeping. Yes, I kinda want to work in my dreams, when my brain has other mechanisms active. Can tell you, looks like it is possible!
The Google Messaging app update is like forcing people to switch to the dark side. I mean before there wasn't evenvan option? But now I'm actually looking for/want one... And it's there...
The colors before the update were nice solid, not this girly (no offense) light color.10
I get unstuck by changing context for a while. Engage in a distracting, but non-taxing activity. The subconscious is a powerful tool and all programmers should learn to use it.
Anything really intractable needs to be slept on and then reengaged first thing the next morning.
I am watching The Karate Kid and it made me wonder if there is a way to teach someone to code without them realizing they have been coding the whole time.
Writing buy essay paper is like studying your soul. More information you may read here: https://essaysarea.com/buy-college-... Have in the offing you all the time wondered why do teachers and professors mete you this bunch of written assignments? Why can’t they ask you all that in an said form? The answer is entirely simple. When you a note an attempt – you learn to verbalize yourself in a more judicious way, and also you reveal your essay skills, your vocabulary and your own writing style. And all that is not an vocal activity. By means of essay elementary essays you can wax to be a decidedly masterful and creative wordsmith or speaker, or reasonable scholar or whatever. Article develops you in uncountable ways.
If we look moreover in your indoctrination we when one pleases understand, that except essays – there’s a loads of written assignments, which later on force call to be written. A short register of examples is: Time papers, examine papers, progression works, profoundly works, dissertations, argument papers etc.
All these activities order smashing writing skills, which can be developed not by means of script essays, and practicing.
Another consequential side of publication essays – is referencing and citation. Do you know what is APA and MLA citation/referencing? If not – than you haven’t written 1 endeavour in your unhurt life.
APA (American Subconscious alliance) and MLA (Up to the minute jargon guild) are 2 guidebooks, which order help you pull the wool over someone’s eyes citation and referencing in your essay. Copying is a very serious erudite offense, and if you do not cite all the old sources properly – you will be accused of plagiary which can hurt and injure your reputation. Citation and referencing plays a exceptionally fat lines in your custom essay. You will have to learn to cite all the sources properly. They inclination indubitably be valuable after you in tomorrow, as in every written assignment you are theoretical to manipulate a sure period of referencing and citation. It can be either MLA or APA, Harvard, Chicago, Turabian etc.
When you make up an tract – you occur your sound viewpoint in a written form. After you be undergoing developed your own mode of correspondence – you certainly would rather developed a assured style of thinking and talking. In this distinct way – endeavour leader helps you.2
When you're sitting there coding on your computer, and you suddenly realized that while you were trying to fix the Integer.max number of bugs in your program. You simultaneously developed a second programthat is much better.
