The local bank ATM was stuck on a reboot loop. Got curious so I stood by and stared at the screen.

🙎‍♂️ "Are you done using it?"
:blobowo: "It's not working"
🙎‍♂️"Then why are you standing there?"
:blobowo: "The crash loop is fascinating!"
🙎"Maybe if you push a button it'll stop"
:blobowo: "The keypad won't work, see it just emerged from POST to Win7's crash recovery boot menu"
🙍"Are you with the bank? Do they know you're messing with it?"
:blobowo: "I'm just watching"
:blobconfused: ".. it's fun?"

and having an s-exp form for them is a good thing, but you want the standard regex syntax too surely?

just write regexes inside strings isn't good enough

fucked up that doesn't have a regular expression lexical syntax

appreciate everybody trying to contribute. some features are out of scope for the project that's all.

ive turned down 2 PRs on linenoise-mob recently: add cmake build script and make it compile as C++

The denial is strong. It doesn't matter how much evidence you show some people that industrial agriculture is unsustainable, produces poor quality food-like products, poisons and kills soil biota and pollinators, contributes to climate change, *and* causes more food waste and shortages than it fixes. They are determined to believe that corporate and industrial = science, and the distributed ownership and regenerative methods of systems like permaculture = anti-science:

NEVER UPDATE SOFTWARE: it's a trap. the update breaks everything.

@rain @alcinnz @gcb @kingcons @akkartik So the original method uses escaped plaintext queries. But at some point someone figured out that they could parse a symbolic version of a query, save that parsed version, and then provide non-escaped arguments to that pre-parsed query, which is both faster (for complex queries) and much safer. I have no idea what the protocol looks like for this but I assume it has explicit string lengths or null terminators or something, instead of quoting.
