Re: Why the big move in gold?

Honestly I’m surprised there isn’t a thread on the knuckleheads forum right now where they’re all trying to convince themselves that gold is just a bubble… for the past 5000 years.

Anyway, Smith, tell me that Rush’s 2112 still has a chance in your plans 😂
Sure, why not. I literally had to Google who they were when you mentioned them. ;D

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

How're everyone's investments going? Swimmingly. Have you figured out some fun new dates? Or, are you guys blasting the opening to Rush 2112 on the way to Tim Hortons for scones, and then a game of curling. Actually, that doesn’t sound so bad.

GDevelop

Does anyone have experience with GDevelop? It's a game development platform for indies and small development teams. I was thinking of using it to try my hand at game development. Any opinions?

Maybe you can ask Jack Jones about Ruby on Rails. He doesn’t seem to talk to be directly these days, but he appears to know a lot of computery stuff. (e.g. gave me tips on emacs).
I've literally never used emacs and now I feel like I should lose my nerd status over that.

My lovely fiance did the following today: handcuffed me to the bed, replaced the filling in the oreos with toothpaste, and replaced the toothpaste in the tube with mayo.

I shouldn’t use twitter as a source though it is photographic evidence. London has Ramadan street lighting and no Easter signs whatsover. That’s … weird. X is unparalleled in many ways.

^ Excellent ^ How hard was it to get into Ukraine? If you hadn’t yet tied the knot, you couldn’t say you were visiting family.

Something very satisfying about tech nostalgia. There's a fairly new video about the Texas Instruments computer (TI-99) as a "failure" on youtube, but I and a lot of other people had a great young adulthood learning BASIC on it. One of the things I miss about the old days was the boatload...

I wonder what SBF is thinking right now. From billionaire business prodigy to prison. Can't imagine that would put anyone on anything less than suicide watch.
