"Explorer, what has your team found?"
"The planet is habitable. It was once home to a relatively developed species that called themselves 'humans', but they burned too many fossil fuels and caused a global climate catastrophe."
"Didn't they do anything to stop that?"
"Yes, they put their best minds to it and came up with a fool-proof plan: stop burning fossil fuels & leave nature intact so trees can suck the carbon out of the air."
"And did they succeed?"
"Naw, they went with Plan B: Let the market regulate itself."
I'll commit the code here as I stream. So feel free to clone the repo and code along if you want:
“Here, a generation after Boeing’s initial lurch into financialization, was the entirely predictable outcome of the byzantine process by which investment capital becomes completely abstracted from basic protocols of production and oversight: a flight-correction system that was essentially jerry-built to crash a plane.”
Wow this article.

This is your hourly reminder that A Dark Room has been released to the Nintendo Switch. We've added new storyline elements, music, dev commentary, and couch co-op. At least add the game to your wishlist so I can get the warm and fuzzies: https://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/a-dark-room-switch/
The 24-bit number is unusual but the 31-bit cracks me up primarily because the 1-bit field preceding it has no purpose. They could've just made it a 32-bit number.
The Amazon rainforest has been burning for 3 weeks, the fires are raging so strong that cities kilometers away have been darkened by the ashes.
The current Brazil president, Jaír Bolsonaro, is a climate change denier, he’s withdrawn a lot of the protections that were in place to protect the rainforest, there is no official media coverage.
Fires are being started deliberately to illegally deforest indigenous land, people have died in the fires already Pataxó woman says https://twitter.com/sunrisemvmt/status/1164180958666469376

My current thinking is that "standard out" is for the standard (expected/typical) output? It is certainly more nuanced, though, than my initial reaction.
@ioquatix There's a good explanation why it should go to stderr in "A Research UNIX Reader: Annotated Excerpts from the Programmer’s Manual":
