Some quotes from IRC, in particular from #ruby in the last ~2 years or so (2014 - 2016)

Lo and behold people!

This is a collection of IRC quotes over the various years.

I will have them mostly from the channel #ruby, or exclusively.

I have quite a bit more, but not all of them are a lot of
fun, so I picked only a few.

I guess the one or other of them may make for a good read - enjoy!

What is the penalty for using -> do end?

No, it just doesn’t look right.

==================================================================

==================================================================

You’re just shoving them into an Array and sorting, so I don’t
understand why they need identifiers, especially given that their names
are right their in the Hash.

Ox0dea, it is perfectly fine to name a struct memeber abc-123 in
C
ruid: What are you on about?
struct blah { int abc-123; }
No.

You must be pretending to be retarded.

i’m looking at rails, it seems to interpolate directly without
using params
but that might be for cross-compatibility across sql connectors
also
rails is still a source of bad ideas, I see

there are two difficult-to-handle things in software evolution

so I found a very interesting exception with the json validation
Bish
if you have required fields in your schema but they are not part
of your response, the validation passes

We have %w for array of words and %i for array of interns; why
not %d for array of numerics?
See, I never even know that the letters had meanings. :wink:
I thought they were picked due to a resemblance to Kanji

Python 2.7.3 or greater (but not Python 3) is required to build.

Darmani bathroom is often where you will have the best ideas
like you can solve a problem that you are unable to solve when
you sit before the computer
other methods involve running
I often run to the bathroom
So I can solve 2 problems

right now i’m busy pushing our company to use Nix across the

==================================================================

hey guys, is there a possible way to declare programatically
variables
in a block? For example i want to call an argumentless function (def
test) that
it will have the variable ‘bla’ set to ‘hello world’
doesn’t sound like it should be argumentless in the first place
to me sounds like you’re on an evil path
you always see only the evil in me
maybe it’s because it’s all you show from yourself

==================================================================

Is the standard coding style in Ruby more EAFP or LBYL?
hmm, the European Association of Fish Pathologists

apeiros: i think that’s called pregnancy.

==================================================================

25.03.2016, #ruby

==================================================================

But… Hash#default_proc exists and Hash#merge supports
conflict resolution.
I don’t see why those things shouldn’t make a baby.

havenwood: a lot

http://www.rubyinside.com/ruby-1-9-3-introduction-and-changes-5428.html
It was a breaking change iirc
though why in the world someone’s using either is another
very relevant question
considering they’re both long deprecated

yeah, the the reason why MRI still has GIL
jsaak: it’s also from 2007
but at least now you can choose rbx or jruby :slight_smile:
jsaak: ko1 (1 = one, not lowercase L), you should consider
using a
font which makes those characters distinguishable :-p
huh 2007… that’s almost 10 years
and we still have the gil
<_ko10> gilty
