I'm never buying Gigabyte hardware again. I bought an X370 motherboard from them. I paid a huge premium for the product. The motherboard died same day. After RMA all was well. Ish. And now, year later, it died again. And it was one of several Gigabyte AM4 boards that I bought for either myself or others, and yet another one that died.
That makes a list of MSI, Asus, and Gigabyte insofar as manufacturers I won't buy motherboards from again.
Hello again, ASRock.
"Try Kotlin" they said. "You'll never want to touch Java again" they said.
Kotlin is so amazingly garbage, I die inside every time I have to touch it. I don't understand how someone was able to puke so much crap and make it an actual programming language. Not only that, but tooling is also broken as hell. I'll just write everything I need to run on JVM in Java, thank you very much. I don't want to touch Kotlin ever again.
Hell just froze over the second time. And third as well.
Microsoft open-sourced components of Windows Forms and Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) under permissive licenses. While it's unlikely these can be used as a basis for xplat ports (though I reckon some poor souls might try to port WPF to GNU/Linux and/or Mono), this is not a thing I have expected to see in my lifespan.
So even though my country does not celebrate thanksgiving (like most countries out there), it seems we observe black friday, although typically in form of a "black week(end)" fashion, where sales last the entire corresponding period of time.
I don't really get much out of that tho - most of the stuff on sale is not what I am looking for.
