[01:39:12] baweaver: I made the joke that nil is the craft glitter of programming, it gets everywhere and there's no getting rid of it.
[01:42:50] RickHull: just discovered Ambition https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4X7J9D6VbTIwnFDFNkfQ1A/videos

[03:38:26] RickHull: I don't quite get how echo() works, or where those methods are shown in the rdoc
[03:39:58] `derpy: http://ruby-doc.org/stdlib-2.4.1/libdoc/shell/rdoc/Shell.html#attribute-c-verbose
[03:46:11] `derpy: http://ruby-doc.org/stdlib-2.4.1/libdoc/shell/rdoc/Shell/CommandProcessor.html#method-i-transact
[03:46:17] `derpy: http://ruby-doc.org/stdlib-2.4.1/libdoc/shell/rdoc/Shell/CommandProcessor.html#method-i-echo
[03:47:24] havenwood: RickHull: It's a pretty obscure corner of Ruby for being the self-proclaimed "idiomatic Ruby interface for common UNIX shell commands."
[03:51:48] RickHull: anyways, found it: https://ruby-doc.org/stdlib-2.4.2/libdoc/shell/rdoc/Shell/CommandProcessor.html#method-i-echo
[04:09:43] RickHull: it's not just obscure and poorly documented, it's fairly horrendous coding style
[04:13:56] RickHull: https://github.com/ruby/ruby/blame/trunk/lib/shell/system-command.rb 17 years ago!
[04:15:11] RickHull: whoops, wrong one https://github.com/ruby/ruby/blame/trunk/lib/shell/command-processor.rb
[10:25:00] ruby[bot]: Please use english in this channel. If you need another language, you can find a list of alternative channels on http://ruby-community.com/pages/channels
[23:20:37] dminuoso: Ive come to realize, that the reason I provide help is to make the world a better place by having more capable developers.
[23:30:21] dminuoso: Just figure out what website it is for, and block it in your browser so you dont accidentally shop there.
[23:32:01] dminuoso: baweaver: Im dead serious. He probably barely understands half the stuff you do, and for the rest he's logic resistant.
[23:34:04] RickHull: i have a deep appreciation for rails as an application platform and for the rails devs -- but I'm skeptical of ORMs and find many rails idioms distasteful
[23:34:04] dminuoso: baweaver: What pains me, is that you're not using this time drawing funky lemurs!
[23:34:39] dminuoso: RickHull: Rails is great if you dont use ActiveSupport, ActionView, ActiveRecord, Sprockets, Spring and Turbolinks.
[23:36:15] dminuoso: Wait until they come back a week later, with a twisted implementation of what you said.
[23:40:53] dminuoso: baweaver: Want to bet that he's working for some large polish bank for the online banking web frontend?
[23:49:04] dminuoso: havenwood: Do you notice how all these functional paradigms are sneaking in with very non-intuitive syntax?
