About Me

I am employed as a software engineer by a high performance media trader. There, I use Python, C++, Go, and AWS.

I like parsimonious code, with simple interfaces and excellent documentation. I'm not interested in enterprise, boiler-plate, or cookie-cutter nonsense. I oppose cruft and obfuscation. My favourite languages are C, Go and Python. I wish I was better at Haskell.

comment Is it possible to speed up ./configure?
It's ridiculous, and a shame, that there are NO good build tools. All the ones that exist are there purely due to inertia. Building binaries is such a fiddly, unpredictable thing.

Any Idea why the ^M isn't necessary?

This has done it, but without the extra ^M, perhaps this was from copy-pasting?

I read that answer, but thought stuff was a placeholder for something else. What does the ^M in your code sample above?

comment Linux distribution popularity by location
How is there no way to answer this? The OP is after links and references to demonstrate popularity. I can provide several such links to authorative sources for this.
