Am I the only one who reads "phparch" as a vaguely sectarian title of office?

FFS, why is there *always* some dweeb willing to step up and say "actually, obfuscated data mining is great! What you didn't read the TOS, lol?"

Putz.

TV person: "We're about to install the concrete countertops."
Me, to myself: "As opposed to abstract countertops."
Me, quieter: "That's what we call instantiation."

@calevans In trivial cases, like assessing a TV show, I agree. But that sense of badness, and its expression, is usually the step towards persuading others that it is so, taking action against it, etc.

Which is why I have believed for some time that most such judgments, presented after the fact as the consequence of rational process, are in fact essentially esthetic.

The visceral response is the first, and usually the most lasting.

"The .phar file extension has been added to Drupal's dangerous extensions list"

This shouldn't make me laugh.

@ramsey Are you in charge of this instance's federation?

That lovely feeling when you finally start closing all the tabs you've opened the past two days while you duckduckgoed, stackoverflowed, and phpnetted the living crap out of a particularly vexing problem.

Oh, PHP. Some days you're just magical.

I hate that about you.

This Mycroft thing is _really_ intriguing.

Wanna play.
