Here's a kind of situation, from Zork-style adventure games (an early AI testbed) which makes me go 'hmm' about the current capabilities of languages like Prolog, or even Dialog.

Say you have a spellbook. The spellbook is an object and it contains spells. Each spell has a precondition (what must be true in the world), a result (what changes in the world), and a description (text and predicate calls).

Oh and you'd like the user to be able to write spells at runtime.

i've never really watched much star trek but my impression is

every tos episode: the ship encounters an alien. kirk tries to either bang it (sex style) or bang it (shooting it style). a drunk scotsman yells what are probably slurs at mr spock

every tng episode: the ship encounters a reverse nadion flow asymmetry in the subspace manifold. picard learns something about another culture and wrestles with his conscience. Riker Gets Horny

Apparently, in Redis configuration "1k" means 1000 bytes, and "1kb" means 1024 bytes, which is one of the more cursed ways I've seen this handled

My new System76 computer is in the mail! I’m a Debian user, but I’m up for trying their Pop OS. Anyone have any experience with it?

Pure genius: the attacker simply made an address book with every phone number on the planet and asked if their friends are on Facebook.
