If you decide to follow me because I like OpenBSD or write tips about vi, be warned:
-CoCs are good
-LGBTQA folks are awesome and deserve rights just like any of us
-Women and minorities have been screwed in tech and we need to fix it
-Nazis deserve punching
-As a white dude, if you/I get called out on something we did, the best response is to apologize and stop talking
If you take issue with any of these statements, this place is not for you.
@xahlee some of them are used by the telnet protocol, but most of them were only useful with really early terminals. Old modems used XON/XOFF (usually 17 and 19) for flow control. Line printers handled CR (drive carriage back to BoL) and LF (go to the same position in the next line) differently, that’s where DOS line ending comes from, and is completely logical in this context). FS/GS/RS/US are used by some binary transfer protocol. VT/FF are used by printers.
@xahlee i find it both funny and said that the names of characters 1-31 are somewhat forgotten. BEL is somewhat used still (to “ring” the terminal), but how often do you see FF or VT nowadays? And we are not even touching the flow control characters at the very beginning of the table.
Also, the correct name of LF is Line Feed, not new line. On old terminals and line printers it did things you wouldn’t expect if you are a newly initiated programmer.
@firstname.lastname@example.org probably because *they* find Sonic hot, but they are not into strangling. Maybe if you tell them you want to make out with Sonic they will react different…
White boys on dates late at night, glowing because they're so pale, they attract the swarm.
By the thousands moths fly out of their ancient mothing grounds and all at once, the boy is gone. In his place the moths have left you a gift. It is a small lamp.
It is beautiful.
i'm gonna say it AGAIN
if your game only allows for a male playable character, but ESPECIALLY a cis white male
it's bad. it's a bad game. you've made nothing original. it's boring. bad bad bad

On a related note:
Minden embernek a lelkében dal van
És a saját lelkét hallja minden dalban
És akinek szép lelkében az ének
Az hallja a mások énekét is szépnek
Every human has a song in their soul
And they hear their own soul in every song
Thus whoever has a beautiful song in their soul
Will percieve others’ song as beautiful.
Honestly though, the main reason I chose it is now it can have a cute Pterodactyl logo. That will go nicely with Mastodon's prehistoric theme!
Now I just need to find someone who can draw a cute pterodactyl...
