hardcoding

Overengineering vs. Crutches
  • binki:I wanted something that was more general, that would be usable in more circumstances
  • Artem:ok
  • binki:it was written with too much hard-coding so that it would only work for one school's website when I want it to support another school's website which uses a similar interface
  • Artem:hard-coding sucks. It's a crutch when something else doesn't work.
  • Artem:I prefer something that is configurable.
  • binki:but I was thinking to myself "I need to store different types of states *and* store different methods of using that state" and I realized I had described an object which is state+behavior
  • binki:but the way I thought of it felt like I was discovering it for the first time
  • binki:it was weird
  • binki:Artem, well, rapid prototyping and agile development say to start out as pragmatic as possible and don't start out by overengineering the problem ;-)
  • binki:when you come back later and need to support more things, *then* is the time for generalization
  • binki:you might make something generalized in the first place that doesn't make sense to generalize and have forgotten about things that need to be generalized
  • binki:so doing things as you need them is in a way a strategy to avoid wasting time on pointless things
  • Artem:binki, I read an article the other day about that: how it would be nicer to make crutches to quickly write the code than doing overengineering.
  • Artem:when you've got less time to finish.
  • binki:lol
  • Artem::D

here you’ll find 4k+ { 1000x563 } HD screens of kingsman; the secret service.

unfortunately the first { FULL } HD copy i’ve found has hardcoded korean subtitles so those will be present throughout the screens { also forgive any fragmented/distorted files you may come across. i tried to pick through them a bit but 4k screens is a lot tbh. } but i know these can still prove useful for things like edits & especially rp icons ! !  e n j o y !

{ screens pictured above are roughly the last handful,
to give you an idea where the screens cut off  xo. }

I left this comment:

Alvivi (and Alvin in the specific) are not alone in the slightest: many Malaysians, notably young-ish and LGBTQ Malaysians, have left the country through any means possible because we don’t want to deal with the kinds of repercussions they’ve dealt with. It gets worse if you were Muslim and don’t conform to the religion anymore: your religion is hardcoded into your ID, and if you’re officially Muslim (usually from birth) you can’t convert out without threat of jail.

I’m in a similar boat to theirs: I left Malaysia and am now in the Bay Area in large part due to wishing to avoid further persecution over my identity and expression thereof. (Added complications: I am from an ultra-persecuted racial-minority in Malaysia, I am technically Muslim but don’t conform, I am a queer gender-non-conforming woman.) Unlike Alvivi I didn’t start writing and creating art around sexuality until AFTER I’d left the country, but that just means that if I end up back there I have to go stealth lest I deal with jailtime. Unlike Alvin I’m here “legally”, but ever since my friends got wind of my visa running out everyone’s suggesting I apply for asylum because of situations like these - problem is, my family’s upper-middle-class enough to “afford” the “legal” way, and it’s not like I’m literally getting beaten up or jailed am I?

It’s kinda unfortunate that Alvin seems to be pretty much a douchebag in a lot of ways - he’s now the face of the effects of repression and the use of religion as political whipping cane in Malaysia (seriously, almost all the political parties are trying to be More Muslim Than Thou just to be voted in). There are many other stories of people in Alvin’s situation, in my situation, who have been fleeing the country for YEARS, but who have not really been heard from because Malaysia isn’t exactly a “sexy enough” country to be cared about (be honest, before the planes in 2014, did you know Malaysia existed?).

I made a tumblr theme based off of my i3wm desktop!

For comparison, this is a screenshot of my desktop (i3-gaps on Arch Linux):

It’s completely mobile-friendly, it uses pure JS (no JQuery), and is overall extremely awesome.

The source is available here: https://gist.github.com/tjb0607/6127425c393affa403de

Please feel free to use this theme! Just note that most of my blog info is hardcoded in, so you’ll have to do a bit of editing for it to work with your blog.

By the way, the text at the top left is rendered as braille symbols using this neat little program I made.

Hi there, I really like your work! I was wondering if you had any update on that program you said you were making (vg-resourceDOTcom/thread-26085-post-582481DOThtml#pid582481) because I liked the results you got from it, more so than the black outline version (that I see you're using for the character from your latest video)

Unfortunately, no, not really. I’ve been spending most of my time animating and coding the character before doing the final pass on all the sprites, so it’s still a very barebones program with all the color values hardcoded and no way to tweak the output.

Casual Pokemon player is a compliment. Who the fuck wants to be a hardcode pokenerd weirdo?

Metagame Tryhards like that Anon, apparently.

I avoid people like them like Superman avoid Kryptonite. XD
