After ~150 years, Ringling Bros. circus is ending. Probably concerned about competition from the circus about to start in the White House.

@bigthingist Why not both? Also, most don’t use ⇒ etc @heathercmiller INTJ’s unite! (In small groups or solitarily of course) @susanpotter “bank level encryption” means hiding your data in the scroll work of a faux marble column? @timsweeneyepic except figuring out big O of lazy, amortized algorithms. [brain pain emoji] @satwikhebbar Gig??? GIG??? HAHAHAHAHAHA. That’s not even 15 meg.

@apontious as luck would have it that someone would be me. Email james dot iry at earnest dot com @SethTisue @milessabin @tpolecat @pandamonial is it compatible with my smartphone? @paul_snively @deanwampler @PhilipWadler better than 15 minutes of lame @SixBitProxyWax @MeetEarnest the answer right now seems to be "not really." @apontious Let me know if this looks interesting to you https://t.co/wFvCl5K1Om @milessabin @tpolecat @pandamonial How else would remote people send their code? @tpolecat @pandamonial Right now I think the culture is tepid about remote. But it’s something I’m working on. @sigfpe floppies do have warmer pixels. @milessabin if you play your cards right we might even let you work on CORBAHelp! I've fallen into a time warp. https://t.co/MNTKeSQOsCCome work with me and people even more awesome (I know, impossible right?) at @MeetEarnest https://t.co/wFvCl5K1Om

@swartzrock Thank you thank you. How’s your world?<3 https://t.co/LqsmRPZHHm @larsr_h it was prologicProlog tips: Use the right logging level. User actions are almost never ERROR. Aggregate your logs. Be consistent about log time zones. @BrianGoetz a motion has been filed to stop the recount.Grabbed an extra pair of socks. Was putting back but realized I haven't actually counted my feet since I was 3. Time to recheck assumptions.

@johndcook RadiolabAs my flight instructor used to say: landing is the one maneuver that isn’t optional. Whether you land on your wheels, however, is up to youI often pedantically point out that humans are apes. But after 2016 I won’t insist that we are great apes.

@marcfawzi nope. I’m just moving on. @heathercmiller @samth @fommil Would not call them merged, though. Still much head scratching and/or shouting about licenses. @heathercmiller @samth @fommil I think “FLOSS” arose as a pragmatic way for practitioners to talk about some useful commonalities.Starting Monday I’m going to be unemployed! New gig starts in the new year. Stay tuned.

@dgtlnmd @notxcain @extempore2 Or like “() => A” with some syntactic sugar @dgtlnmd @notxcain @extempore2 Not a typo. The type “=> A” in Scala is an A that is evaluated by need. Like an unmemoized lazy value.Stupid website says 404 is not found. I just looked and it’s right after 403.https://t.co/ZY2nmte5xn
