    1. The press will tell you that "the concept" is great but the execution is bad. What should I tell you? The experience is shallow. The game is mediocre. But listen carefully, when a game is mediocre and can't even make you feel something then it's the worst kind of gaming. I will give it a 4 out of 10. You know, if this was a test in a school then this game should be marked D (someone answered a few questions, but overall missed the point). I understand that many people care about the "concept" of this game, but why if the experience is just... not here. I'm talking about the experience becaus We. The Revolution tried to be an actual experience. And it fails so badly.

    1. Great, I can use vw to scale text so it doesn't look puny on a desktop! Perfect... Oh. Huh, now the text is too small to read when viewed on a phone. Okay, well I can just use "max(x,y)" to make sure it doesn't get shrunk beyond a minimum size. Perfect... Oh. Hmm. Looks like "max" isn't supported properly by Chrome. Okay, well guess I'll just use "px" again.

    1. Really sucks if they don't give us our money back for this game.
    2. I am having the same problem... Contacted Nintendo support and they said they cannot guarantee that I will be able to get a refund for this game that doesn't work.

    1. However, those descriptors gave a bit too much flexibility/dynamism to the class shape in order to be efficiently optimizable.

      I think this:

      However, those descriptors gave a bit too much flexibility/dynamism to the class shape in order to be efficiently optimizable.

      means:

      However, because those descriptors were gave so much too much flexibility/dynamism to the class shape, it could not be be efficiently optimized.

      rather than:

      In order to be efficiently optimizable, those descriptors gave much flexibility/dynamism to the class shape.

      In other words that flexibility/dynamism hindered optimization; it wasn't for the purpose of optimization (as "in order to be" could be interpreted as).

      The "too much" wording also contributed to the confusion for me.

      But maybe just dropping "in order" would have been enough for me:

      However, those descriptors gave a bit too much flexibility/dynamism to the class shape to be efficiently optimizable. or However, those descriptors gave a bit too much flexibility/dynamism to the class shape for them to be efficiently optimizable.

    1. At some point, a few years ago I even wrote a script to concatenate all source files and erase all import statements. A poor-mans module bundler just to get a grip on the module loading order.

    1. Svelte offers an immutable way — but it’s just a mask to hide “assignment”, because assignment triggers an update, but not immutability. So it’s enough to write todos=todos, after that Svelte triggers an update.

    1. of, relating to, or being a grammatical case or form expressing means or agency

      I really need an example of this!

      It seems unusual that they specifically mention "a grammatical case or form". I've never seen a definition before that is anything like this one.

      How is this different from definition 1?

    1. to bypass work

      What does "work" mean here? I think maybe they mean to bypass profiling?

    1. In algebra, for some set S together with an operation ⋆ {\displaystyle \star } to form a group, it is necessary that ⋆ {\displaystyle \star } be associative.

      Seems like a simpler example (of individually necessary and jointly sufficient) that is easier to follow could be found.

    1. It is the luxurious and dissipated who set the fashions which the herd so

      This is very true. Celebrities are huge trend-setters and with social media, their influence is more powerful. Why are people so quick to jump on the trends and follow them so diligently? Why do we try to be like the "luxurious and dissipated" and give them authority to influence? Overindulgence does not lead to more happiness. In the end, the rich and poor have the same fate. We do not carry our riches to the grave.

    1. The Javits Center is often used by urbanists as an example of the perils of inhumane design. The unused and un-policed periphery attracts crime and vagrancy while its one entrance opens upon an eight lane street. This combination means that most conference attendees hire a taxi to ferry them to a more hospitable neighborhood.

      This is an excellent example of creation without context, particularly use by target populations. Walkability was so poor that it negatively affected the area.

    2. The only way to reach the Public Square promenade from the street is to climb three flights of stairs onto the High Line, then cross a fairly narrow bridge connection. The street level features a large cafeteria, but like the 10th avenue perimeter, the sidewalks are so narrow and the road so heavily trafficked with vehicles that it is unlikely the street can thrive as a public space.

      Examples of why this space is not user-friendly and basically unwalkable. Those designing the space did not consider practicalities like access.

      how many classes they offer--- they offer language classes. do they study english? they also study orientation and religion, so how would religion fit in with sexual orientation?

    1. 'll write comments along the way about new ideas I got or questions I need to explore further. Then, in the future, I’ll only need to read this document instead of re-reading all the individual papers.
