          @streakmachine A Japanese Super-Famicom. Which turns into an enormous and suspiciously nimble flower-arranging robot when the secret command is uttered. @pme

            @smc I bet it’s nice though.

              Stupid code written, PR filed. Home time.

                @keita Yeah. Changing the rules is easy. Changing a culture is much harder.
                cgiffard
                  @keita The question is — how ruthless will they be in their enforcement of these rules?

                    As time goes on, I feel stupider and stupider. I think basically any dev can run rings around me these days.

                      @keita @tomcat Still, your client sounds pretty, uh. annoying.
                      cgiffard
                        @keita @tomcat At least that’s easy. This is implementing unbelievably dumb business rules for manipulating incredibly badly formatted HTML delivered by applications which have a six month change-release cycle.

                          @tomcat Stupid hacky crap to work around shit I shouldn’t have to do. Not even really worth talking about. Just a simple case of garbage in, garbage out.

                            I hate having to write this code. My fingers are burning.

                              @keita What if the universe has the equivalent of hardware virtualisation, and the sub-universe doesn’t have to be necessarily less complex than the parent? @hybotics
                              cgiffard
                                @keita (Also, if we’re the most nested simulation, the reality all the other realities are supporting — aren’t we at the *top*? The turtles existed to support the world, right? We’d have to descend infinitely to find the bottom.) @hybotics
                                cgiffard
                                  @keita (*are* we at the bottom? Perhaps we’re at the bottom at this timescale, but perhaps not in a hundred years.) @hybotics
                                  cgiffard
                                    @keita @hybotics Perhaps we’ll be consoling ourselves and our inability to truly exist in physical form by simulating our own universes and lording over them.

                                      @keita @hybotics I wonder if there’s a proof describing whether a chain of simulated universes must be finite. If it’s infinite, the “turtles all the way down” woman was ironically correct…

                                        @keita @hybotics What if this is all a game — and when our species is ready to join the universal council, it’ll be when we’ve broken out completely. (But then we discover the council is merely a simulation itself. WHERE DOES IT END!?)
