I was posting frequently back in 2001-2005 when I was at University getting my Bachelors' degree in CompSci then I dropped off. I went back to school in 2006-2012 for a doctorate, but in a non-computer field (Pharmacy). Little time for programming.

I lurk and respond little. Mostly because technology is advancing past what I know or I don't have the time.

Just trying to get through today. This is the first anniversary without my wife. This time last year we were happy together. What a difference a year makes... it would have been our 37th anniversary today. :'(

Hello Neil. It's always hard to respond to those kind of sad and true messages.
I feel sad/bad for you each time I think of your story and Wanda. I hope things are going to be better for you. Stay strong !

Hey, where's that guy I was supposed to hate crime? He better be making some progress...

Just ran across these old gems;

Aww man. I miss those good old days. I don't understand how I became involved... by accident--no intentional decision making... with so many communities. And now, it's like... I have no idea how to find new ones.

I left those toxic cesspools like Reddit and I'm noticably happier. The fringe subs are fine, as everyone knows, but god, anything the "normies" with cellphones touch will just be an angry cesspool.

And Twitter, ahahah, oh man, I've never seen so many people motivated to outrage... by an algorithm. They're literally hurting people just so a click algorithm can generate revenue. I'm glad I never tried to get into that.

I moved to a new city two years ago right when COVID hit and shut *everything* down. At least 1/3rd of all small businesses (actual statistic) disappeared to never reopen. Because only billion dollar megacorps are worthy of saving. So instead of dozens of amazing high quality local own restaurants, you get Applebee's and IHOP on every corner which literally... literally... use bags of frozen strawberries instead of getting fresh ones at the wal-mart they share a parking lot with. Imagine paying real money... for old, frozen... mushy... strawberries. That's 2022. My wife made me basic french toast the next day with some strawberries from wal-mart and I was like "holy, crap. This is so much better than the $15 bucks I wasted at ihop."

I'm 100% with you on that. I still pass through Reddit occasionally, but holy geebuz what a shitpool on the mainstream subs. Any time I go towards social, Reddit mainstream news, Twitter, I start to have anxiety attacks so I'm moving away from that shit. Everything is framed as some kind of attack on your personal beliefs and sanctity. War, pandemic, stock market crashing, government mandates, protests, it's like everybody is against your simple desire to just chiiiiiilll without having to worry about anything.

So, I've started to spend more of my computer time on programming projects, go outside more (but the weather has been really shitty lately), only touch social like once every two days. The internet has really gone to shit. You have to pick and choose very wisely where you spend your time.

I'm in the process of buying a house and gosh it's a headache despite everything going well, can't imagine what it's like for others.

Got preapproved in about three seconds thanks to my credit/income. Third offer was accepted on the first place we really wanted. (Someone beat us initially but it fell through so they reached back out to us.) Going to end up paying upwards of 106% of the asking price though... Home inspection was great, waiting anxiously on appraisal (next Wednesday).

Anyway I'll be a homeowner soon. 8-)

Wait until you see the stack of papers they make you initial and sign. That is a task in itself. I've purchased 4 houses in my lifetime. A pain every time.

Do we all agree that egg came first?

I used to think Stack Overflow was fun to answer questions on , but then there are people there that spend their entire waking lives there. Kinda freaky. I liked gamedev.net forums but they're pretty advanced topics there and I don't always get it.

Johan - the dinosaur was first. We all know birds came from dinosaurs. :p

Depends on which religion you ask. :)

Per evolution: the chicken is just a product of it's predecessors slowly mutating genetically over generations until you get the modern chicken. The egg was just the vessel needed to birth it.

The egg came first.

No, it doesn't depend on which religion you ask. That's a mis-truth. The bible does not say the earth was created 6 or 8 thousand years before Moses. Genesis is the beginning of this Earth age. A period of time. The beginning of the middle, not the absolute beginning. Unlearned idiots teaching atheists what to believe. Ridiculous.

Growing up I was taught that ALL species of animals were created at Genesis. And all species of animals alive today are the same species that boarded the Ark. There was no evolution taught in the church. Even got a handy laminated timeline of the earth from Genesis to now which only went back to around 4000BC.

Good grief! Did I start a religious debate on a.cc? Should have asked about the chicken crossing the road instead.

Well now that bambams is gone, someone has to take up the atheist torch here on a.cc. ;P `(
