Some people when faced with a problem think, I know, I'll use distributed computing. Now they have n^2 problems. I corral Cascading cats at Concurrent.

Retweeted by James Iry@cowtowncoder @capotej @bodil Okay, maybe I misunderstood what was meant by "sharing code client/server"@cowtowncoder @capotej @bodil Example. Game computes collisions on clients for speed. Re-computes on server for validation and consistency.@capotej @bodil Which means a certain amount of code sharing (or at least strong similarity) is inevitable.@capotej @bodil In many client/server situations you can't trust the client for security reason but you want computation there for speed…Trial slogan: "we pass the buck to you so you don't have to."

@bodil Needs sauce.@bodil Oh, it gets pretty hat there sometimes. http://t.co/vz2epaVO6b@bodil That's because it is in fact "hat sauce," a sauce designed to make eating your hat palatable by making it spicy.@jamesiry not sure about the capitalization though, what about "Bike shed."?
Retweeted by James Iry@cwensel Yo, hook a brother up.From now on every new project will be code-named "bike shed."@extempore2 @dbgrandi @aloiscochard No, no, paradigms are organized religions (with churches, martyrs, and bishops) not mere superstitions.Gnu calls weak vtables and some similar things "vague linkage." You couldn't invent this much accidental complexity if you tried.On my BART commute this morning I learned about C++ "weak vtables."

@djspiewak Even then, a if you hack a PR based git bisect I'm still going to be annoyed if I can't bisect into a PR with lots of commits.@djspiewak If git bisect worked at the level of PRs I might accept that. But since it doesn't I have minimum standards on commits.@djspiewak I should say it used to have an anything goes policy. That changed and bisecting through history has a clear delineation.@djspiewak to long term health of the project.@djspiewak And I've lived with a large code base that had anything goes commits. Sometimes re-doing a PR before committing is essential…@djspiewak Which is my original point. Gitbhub doesn't maintain enough history on the PR that gets a push -f.@djspiewak people who based work off the WIP are screwed.@djspiewak If your commits don't meet our standards we have two choices. Close PR and ask for reissue. Or ask for push-f. Either way…@djspiewak So don't push -f to a collaborative branch.@djspiewak Until my PR is merged, my branch is WIP.Most computer science papers' evaluation sections look like this: http://t.co/el40woPlrq
Retweeted by James Iry@davetron5000 @github But i don't necessarily want to squash into one commit, just into a better organized series of clean commits.@davetron5000 @github …because I need to make sure the squishing process didn't introduce new, unreviewed changes.@davetron5000 As for one final squish, I'd be happy with that if @github let me compare the result of the squished PR with the previous PRs@davetron5000 @github Not "true" history since arbitrary rebasing happened before the PR was issued.@davetron5000 @github Don't rebase a PR? But then you've got millions of janky little commits to fix typos the reviewers found.Any suggestions on how to use @github to review pull requests that get rebased during the review process? The lack of history is frustrating
