I bet Matthew's got a secret git branch with years of updates, but he can't get it to merge with master anymore. We've got to hold out people! Help is on the way!

He probably uses Mercurial... *shudders* :'(

I probably uses e-mails with zips.

Mercurial is a pretty good system. It has some fucked ideas, and since they had backwards ideas from the start it has several parallel solutions to problems, none of which works perfectly. So it takes some getting used to. Whereas Git solved most of those problems better from day one. But Mercurial is still a great system. The most interesting feature which I don't think is coming to Git anytime soon is called "evolution". Basically, when you rewrite history with "evolve" enabled, Mercurial actually tracks the history edits, and when you fetch history from upstream that marks your history as "obsolete" (i.e., edited) Mercurial knows that it needs to rewrite all of your history based on it. It's not a perfect system yet, but it does work quite well, and it shows a lot of promise. In the Git world, the only solution to that is "don't edit shared history" or "communicate and make every member of the team repeat your edits manually". So Mercurial isn't without its contributions to source control technology.

All that said, Allegro.cc is probably tracked with CVS. :-[

Far inferior to tarballs and emails and patches. >:(

As long as you use decent source control, who cares!

If it doesn't resolve the issue, we'll evaluate whether the latest round of anti-speculative-execution patches we've had to apply could somehow be responsible. (The performance impact of this fix is estimated to be just a couple of percent, but a banana on a football field isn't even that much and yet woe unto the quarterback who steps on it.)

All of my code is packed into Snapchat with an encryption key based on the exact datetime, and speed of the CPU, and set to expire within 7 days. 8-)

Tsk tsk tsk, we seem to not be able to keep two threads alive. Hopefully, nothing comes up that causes us to want to keep three threads alive.

Honestly, there's no good reason to keep this thread alive IMO. The other thread is more important so this should take a backseat. It's certainly foolish to divide our resources among threads. >:(

I demand we keep all threads alive from now on. They're like a genetic life form that spawns cells (threads) and some survive, or not, before being able to "split" into new threads.

I miss the good ole days. :'(

When yves and AK both used to program on AmigaOS. :'(

Back when it was still acceptable to call someone a neck beard. :'(

And everyone lived in their mom's basement programming and playing WoW. :'(

I always just pronounced it 'yih-vess', although I suppose it could be interpreted as 'eeves' or 'eeve' in a French context.

I always pronounced it yah-ves.

Clearly, this is far worse than the tabs vs spaces problem and we need to get into an intense flame war over the superior pronunciation.

I suggest we work together though.

So I'm currently in the lead. Because I suggested teamwork over my best interests.

Which is surprisingly similar to the name of God. Perhaps Yves is really a Jehovah's Witness?

I can safely say, that to know him, was to love him. And to love him, was to know him. Those who knew him, loved him, while those who did not know him, loved him from afar.

Wow guys. ::)

TNG: This douchebag super-egotistical scientist realizes he's dying, so he takes over Data's body, and never stops singing his praises. It's hilarious.

Throughout the episode he keeps butting heads with everyone, while "thinking" he's so smart he's entirely undercover.

Dude, I literally just watched this episode like two days ago in a recent binge. :o

This is an oldie, but a good Data GIF/Windows crash. :)
