The DRY principle says that if you write something more than once you should refactor it. Here I see you used () in two places; that can be a macro, to ease readability.

OK so this is kind of a pain in the neck to do a lot of times but sometimes you can get the output if the C preprocessor.

Then through careful editing, you can kind of figure out what it's turning in to.

int main(...) {
   WEIRD_MACRO(1, 2);
}

Then you could just put comments above and below it, and run cpp -I/all/include/directories main.c

It will tell you the final output and also have debugging garbage about where each thing expanded from.

Not ideal, and also in a big project that uses a complex build tool it can be incredibly hard to get the cpp args, but it can help.

Remember when the most asinine thing the tech industry had to offer was proprietary juice boxes?

I miss those days.

If I had mod powers on this board, I would ban you. That's how much I love dogs.

Well if they have the keys to decrypt it then there's no point in E2E, it's effectively not encrypted, since they can decrypt it.

I mean, it's better than not being encrypted at all but the whole point of E2E is only you and your intended recipients can read it.

I guess it would be nice if apple did switch from I message go RCS. Then everyone's phone could use one standard

That said RCS doesn't support e2e encryption so I guess it doesn't really matter that much.

It's so funny how most music uses like three instruments. We need wacky new instruments that make new sounds.

Could it be "the concept of speed runs"? It's obvious, anyone could come up with the idea of trying to play faster. It doesn't require any research to start doing it (beyond knowing how the game works). And yet, the fun of speed running a game is often completely separate from the game you're speed running.

I don't know anything at all about it and I refuse to find out on principle, but when I see an article titled some shit like "johnny depps lawyer hilariously shuts down expert witness" I think this whole thing sucks. A famous actor with a huge PR team that's trying to paint this thing a certain way.

Celebrity media is honestly just the worst.

I argue online a lot, and even tho I know it's stupid while I'm doing it, I still find myself doing it.

It's embarrassing! I don't know why I do it! It doesn't make sense!

It's recuperation. It will always happen, nothing to be done about it except not lose sight of what really matters.

The wringer itself is not too big, it disassembles and you can store it. But you need to have something to mount it to in order to use it and it's pretty big when its in use because it has to sit over a bucket or something

I would say the wringer itself is maybe a foot tall and two/three feet wide? But with the bucket and the handle attached much bigger.

A couple years back I bought a wash board and a wringer because my landlord kept raising the price on the washing machines.

I think I used them like 5 times total.
