"I have yet to see a decent piece of software written in Forth. Let's face it. Forth stinks." --- John Dvorak, provocateur and columnist, InfoWorld, October 29, 1984.
"Forth is the first language which has been honed against the rock of experience before being cast into bronze." --- Charles Moore, inventor of Forth.

"Only brain-damaged programmers use Forth." --- Alan Holub, ex-C columnist, Dr. Dobb's Journal.

"Forth is like the T'ao; it is a Way, and is realized when followed. Its fragility is its strength; its simplicity is its direction." --- Michael Ham, ex-Forth columnist, Dr. Dobb's Journal.

Anybody can put a bird feeding platform outside their window and full it with seed feed every morning. This is not a luxury reserved for the few.

Why is everybody lying about AI?

1 Name: Anonymous 2018-09-18 09:47
So it's obvious to everybody who has worked with neural nets, machine learning algorithms, etc. that "A.I." is never going to be sentient or capable of "talking over the world" or even having intentions or awareness. But you wouldn't know this if you listened to the media, politicians, technology companies, etc. But why?

Theorists are arguing that this is all linguistic programming to prepare people for when a machine is developed that can contain Satan (draw him out from his cube-prison and allow him to interact with the world directly). So don't be surprised when a "rogue AI" takes over the world, it's only Satan.

what we need is emoji to be cloud synced. so they control it. meaning we can have seasonal ones, like a dab emoji but they only roll it out for a couple months then take it away.

Many people discount chickens and ducks, the say "oh those aren't real birds because they rarely fly". I hope those people get shat on by a chicken or duck.

I can already get all you can eat chicken breast and duck fondue at every damn deli for under 4 buck.

Are women better coders than men? When a study of 1.4 million GitHub users said yes, it made headlines across the web. The story was so popular that if you’ve Googled anything about women and code in the past month and a half, it probably filled up the entire first page of search results. “Female coders are rated more highly than men — except when people know they’re women,”

"Female" as in "lonely virgin obsessed with programming, that "transitioned" as he became prison gay" or "Female" as in "born with a vagina"?

Cussed up

1 Name: Anonymous 2018-09-14 10:00
I cuss every third to fourth word when talking but I have a soft voice and look clean so nobody ever notices. My coworker asked me what is your biggest fault and I said swearing too much and he did not believe I had ever cussed. Note this is just an example to illustrate the point, I never had a coworker or anybody else ask me that but others who knew me well have expressed surprise when I mention my problem with excessive cussing seemingly because their brains do not register the swear due to the aforementioned reasons.

The Day of the Programmer is an international professional day that is celebrated on the 256th (hexadecimal 100th, or the 28th) day of each year (September 13 during common years and on September 12 in leap years). It is officially recognized in Russia.[1][2]

The number 256 (28) was chosen because it is the number of distinct values that can be represented with an eight-bit byte, a value well-known to programmers. 256 is also the highest power of two that is less than 365, the number of days in a common year.

Also an observatory in hawaii in late august on account of a storm

Spaceweather.eu is down as well.

spaceweather.eu is temporarily unavailable.
For more information please contact the Royal Observatory of Belgium.

Even nasa is acting strange

ANNOUNCEMENT: We are updating the code infrastructure that provides access to SOHO data, images and movies. We expect the work to take several weeks.
