you should be writing everything in macros, as macros are fast

#define THE_PROGRAM all \
    your \
    code \
    goes \
    here

int main()
{
    THE_PROGRAM();

nah, i'm not too worried. the only thing i worry is they aren't going to make the exact thing i want, or they will make the exact thing i want but it has significant drawbacks and costs 3x more than is reasonable.

can't speak to moka pots, but french presses tend to make the coffee quite bitter or "impure" for lack of a better way to describe it. i make decaf in mine sometimes when i'm too lazy to clean the machine, and i'm satisfied with the result but it's not amazing by any stretch of the imagination.

is this a joke or would ccleaner in wine actually be able to do anything?

was a joke, but i looked it up and apparently people have had success with it

probably wouldn't clean up the snake poop, though

just run it in wine

btw, ccleaner, along with avira, avg and avast have all been (or are about to be) acquired by norton. all the washed up anti-malware companies are grouping to form a giant scoop with which they are scraping the bottom of the barrel.

you used to be able to escape the ads and bullshit by installing a retail copy, though. not anymore. in the current version of windows 10, you aren't even allowed to disable sending your start menu searches to bing without manually changing the registry.

want to explain the lawyers = sovcits thing? i can't make the logical leaps to that conclusion myself, so i'm very curious what you mean by it.

wish you luck on the job hunt 💜
