oblique strategies for programmers:
do repeat yourself
you probably don’t need that
optimise early, it’s fun
try a new language feature
maybe you can do this entirely with tags and filters
try turning your program inside out
restate the problem
the naïve algorithm is probably fast enough
it is easier to ask forgiveness than permission
it is easier to correct a wrong program than to write a correct program
create a new programming language for this

@aphyr that transformer shouldn't have fucked with Montresor
gritty reboot of family matters where steve is a teen with a haunted past who falls into flights of fancy, occasionally hallucinating himself as stefan to deal with his ptsd, relitigating his drunk driving hit and run that left a myposian immigrant dead in the cold streets of chicago. in a 3-season long attempt to turn himself in, he develops a crush on a neighbor whose father has been investigating the case but has been unable to connect steve’s catch phrase as both an admission of guilt and attempt to reconcile the past. “Did I do that?” audiences will discover that and more as carl winslow gets closer to discovering the circumstances that led to the murder of balki bartokomous—will he become the next target, or will steve apply pressure to stop an investigation by putting laura’s life in the balance? 3 seasons exclusively on Paramount+.
