The year is 5019. Humans, as we know them, are long gone. The Earth is inhabited chiefly by advanced, sapient machines.

For legacy reasons, everyone's name starts with "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible;".

The weirdest thing to me about CORS is that you can't whitelist multiple sites in the same Access-Control-Allow-Origin header. It's either "*" or exactly one site.

So the standard solution is to echo back the referrer site, but only if it's whitelisted. "Ah yes foo.com, you are my one and only. I only allow requests from you." "Ah yes bar.com, you are my one and only. I only allow..." It's bizarre.

Dear Ruby devs and game devs. I have a crazy announcement I want to share. Please boost.

Last week I released A Dark Room to the Nintendo Switch. Within the game, I also shipped a Ruby interpreter and a code editor as an Easter Egg.

*This Easter Egg effectively turns every consumer spec-ed Nintendo Switch into a Ruby Machine.*

1. Download A Dark Room from the US/EU.
2. Connect a USB keyboard and press the “~” key.
3. Follow the onscreen instructions.

in 2008 we'd all crowd round the computer to see what the One Big New Thing was on the internet that week. there was only one thing that happened on the internet every week, by the end of the week news had reached all the outer forums and everyone knew about it. it was usually a flash game or a youtube poop. we'd all crowd round the computer. excited about what this week's new content was gonna be. the video loads. its luigi, and hes saying "SPAGHETTI" over and over again for eight minutes

sometimes i try to understand the theory musicians talk about and i end up on wikipedia with many tabs open thinking it's literally harder than quantum physics

you should play celeste. this game is beautiful, sounds great and is addicting. the last game that had me try again and again and again and again without being frustrating was super hexagon.

just a hunch, but maybe there is a sql query error
