Question: What's your favourite programming book? Do you follow clean code rules? Do you use functionoids?
Asked by Pony (78.152.169.x) on August 25 2020, 11:47am
Reply on August 25 2020, 2:08pm:
    I haven't read a programming book in ages. Not sure what "clean code rules" are but I'm sure I have plenty of my own rules! Functionoids, yes, sometimes. LICE uses something close to that with templates for blend modes...

Question: Are you worried that some more left leaning liberals will not vote for JB, similar to what happened to HC?
Asked by mistermag (155.4.221.x) on August 24 2020, 8:18pm
Reply on August 24 2020, 10:11pm (edited at August 24 2020, 10:12pm):
    Yeah that is a worry, hopefully people can suck it up and do the least-bad thing though. :/ I do know people who voted for GJ/JS in 2016 and will vote for Biden this time, though, so that's maybe encouraging?

Question: Is it better to vote tactically, or should you always vote with your conscience, regardless of the outcome?
Asked by Rob The Questioner (213.205.197.x) on August 21 2020, 6:29pm
Reply on August 21 2020, 7:21pm (edited at August 21 2020, 7:23pm):
    Vote tactically, absolutely! Voting your conscience, if the candidate has no chance of winning, is only useful for sending a message. The problem is, generally speaking, those messages are ignored by everybody. What was the message of Jill Stein and Gary Johnson receiving a total of a percent or so? That a small tiny minority was willing to throw their vote away...

    I'll only speak to NYC and the NYPD, since it is where I live, but I would imagine it is similar in other places in the country:

    I think the scope and funding of the NYPD is an order of magnitude too large, and those resources would be far better spent on other social services.

    Reducing the budget and headcount is probably not sufficient, I think there is a culture that is problematic and probably needs a bigger overhaul, but I leave how to do that to the experts...

Question: Hey justin. Long time no see for a few months. I hope you're doing fine. I was hoping if you would like to work with me on getting more people to use Ninjam to obtain a pretty big following of Ninjam. Old and Young audience. Cause i think ninjam is good, just needs some more people during the pandemic (which I have been doing on platforms such as Twitch since I've ran Discord Online Jamming Central). Would be a great help for the Ninjam community all round
