    Im wondering if that insurance file he released will have anything of worth. Assuming it gets releassed. Needless to say this will be an interesting story.

    I don’t necessarily love testing but its a necessity. I usually write unit tests for most of my code as a sanity check, and then some larger intergration tests that test large components of the project as a whole. Never had to mess with UI/UX testing so I can’t comment on that.

  3. Comment on What song are you currently addicted to? in ~music

    Honestly I agree, the song gets a bit of shit from its memetic (is that a word?) origins, but I think its a pretty good song.

  6. Comment on Web developers - What is your stack? in ~comp

    Front end is just HTML/CSS and minimal JS when needed. Backend is Golang, though the language could really use a Django or RoR like framework for it.

  7. Comment on Do you guys run a home server? If so what do you self host? in ~comp

    I guess this is considered a homelab but its my friend’s beefy server that he lets me have a vm on. Its just gentoo with ssh for remote development and building large projects + a mail server.

    Trustless networks should focus on moving the trust in network away from some sort of centralized monopoly and toward the users. I think that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are stepping in right direction, though they do have a long way to go. For instance, while Bitcoin might have moved the trust away from banks and institutions that act in their own interest, it has been moved to miners that act in their own interest. This was very prominent with the BTC vs BCH debacle a while back. Maybe new innovations with Proof-of-Stake will help alleviate some of these issues, though at the end of the day one will still have to trust the dev teams.

    I really hope our checks and balances are upheld, if not this could set a really bad precedent for the future.

    As a high school student I can't really comment on what language I use for work. But my personal favorite languages are C, Rust, Golang, and Bash. Recently, Rust has replaced many of my C based side projects. Anything web related or high level stuff is done with Go. Anything relating to automating the workflow on my computer is done in Bash.

    For the longest time I ran Gentoo + i3wm. It was a great learning experience and it really taught me how Linux and Unix operating systems work. Though now I just run MacOS. At this point, I just prefer my OS to work so I can get my work done without fiddling with drivers. If I went back to Linux it would most likely just be Ubuntu or Fedora.

    Rust They’ve seemed to solve many of the discrepancies I had with C/C++. I believe it can become a solid competitor to C++ in due time.
