Hashtag never marry a hedge fund manager. Or do? I need more details on the source of funding for this shoe collection.

The following year, Dan Shak, a hedge fund manager and professional poker player who once sued his ex-wife for 35% of her $1 million shoe collection, was fined $400,000 and prohibited from trading during settlement periods after being charged with abusing TAS. He paid an additional $100,000 after he was found to have traded during the settlement window for gold a year later. He said it was an accident.

Today in #Android is awful: turned on an old tablet and need to push it through three OS updates. No way to simply install the latest. During each update, it spends many more minutes "optimizing" my apps, making the whole process take far longer. And utterly useless, since all the apps are going to be updated next.

Now that I'm done with this televised disaster, I've found people on the internet willing to argue that if I assume a bunch of things not in the show, and ignore a bunch of things that were, there's a way to have it all make sense.

@sh reply all is a privilege, not a right. :)

I happen to like it this way, but it's an easy adjustment to make. Also, fwiw, under the covers everybody gets cc'd, they just don't get extra special mentioned. (Personally, I think the whole idea of stuffing addressing metadata into the message content is ridiculous, but we lost that war when we decided to clone twitter.)

The emoji substitution thing is pretty dumb and annoying to fix. I'm inclined to say, oh just don't do that, but I'm not convinced it's safe to leave incoming posts mangled.

So the answer is, not good. Thanks. :)

I'm trying to fix things up so that all the many text substitutions done to posts, markdown, auto linking, emoji, mentions, hashtags, etc., all apply in a consistent order and without interfering or stomping on each other.

In other words, I know, I'll use a regular expression.

The imminent collapse of CPU performance improvements has been predicted for quite some time, but it does seem we're increasingly clutching at straws to keep things going.

Adding turbo clocks was a good way to avoid limiting performance to worst case thermals. But then that become a game to push ever higher for ever shorter durations, without doing much for sustained performance. Now we're picking a single golden core on a die to be the chosen one to get a few extra hundred MHz.

It seems the captain can only order engineering to divert power from life support to warp engines so many times.

Wonder what implications will be for Wirth's Law. Will software keep getting slower?
