Had a dream where I was running an NPC generator and it was pulling random genders from a file with hundreds of genders

asking for advice, boost ++++++++ 

hey y'all! as some of you might know I'm moving for the first time in my life soon™️ but in the meantime I'm doing some roomie interviews/chats (which I've also never done before)

what are some questions I should be asking during these calls? are there any pieces of advice you have for me?

I'm v nervous about this so anything helps, even if it seems incredibly obvious

thanks!!!!

Anyone from North or South America? Please give uberspace.de a quick ping in your terminal or GUI tool. We're interested in latency, your very rough location, and optionally ISP. Thanks :)
(boosts for sample size very welcome!)

One of the better video game ideas I've had in a while 

FTL meets Stargate.

Assemble away teams, send via gate to new planets, assuage locals and destroy enemy aliens, find new systems to jump to.

Announcing Meme It So! It's a Star Trek The Next Generation Meme and GIF Generator, inspired by Frinkiac.

It has every line of dialogue spoken on STTNG tied to screencaptures. Which makes it good for looking up lines as well.

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

When people say "Magic as Richard Garfield intended" I think of this interview where he says he wishes he could make a deck that was all [[Mox Pearl]] and [[Shahrazad]]

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
