Anyone have bbq this weekend?

jasonbell12:04:08

The last four days have been rather strange, no bbq, not much done. I did manage to paint a bathroom ceiling and attend a vigil though.

@dominicm which particular πŸ”₯ did you start? Bute? Marsden Moor? Ilkley Moor? other?

rickmoynihan13:04:06

The Uppermill fire was worryingly close to the village… and less than a 1/2 mile from my house https://twitter.com/GranadaReports/status/1120637551864426496

dominicm14:04:24

There were fires over the weekend?

dominicm14:04:41

Why do I keep getting accused of committing crimes?

The future has unevenly distributed itself near your house @rickmoynihan

Conor14:04:11

Unseasonal nice weather like we had recently just depresses me now

rickmoynihan14:04:06

Me too, but not as much as the arsonists and idiots who start these fires in the first place

otfrom14:04:37

yeah, but the arson generally doesn't have as much effect if everything is soggy, so the climate change just makes it worse. 😞

practicalli-john14:04:56

only takes one careless person with a cigarette... when its this dry

otfrom14:04:13

or a spark from a backfiring car

dominicm14:04:31

or a bottle of petrol, your ex's belongings and a match box

practicalli-john14:04:57

or rubbish that focuses the suns rays in one spot..

dominicm14:04:45

or a really big ant and a magnifying glass

An interesting discussion on ycombinator (hacker news) about the popularity of clojure...https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=19727551

maleghast15:04:36

It is an interesting discussion, I agree... I am always amazed by the way in which such discussions bring out the haters, as though there is something constructive about tearing something down... Why don't they just not expend the energy, I wonder?

"pouring tomato ketchup over a lemon sorbet" -- on Java interop πŸ™‚

dominicm17:04:22

I like java interop

dominicm17:04:30

It's perfect. Not ugly.

benedek20:04:00

yeah i thought that was a bit harsh too

practicalli-john22:04:16

Java interop was one of the things that made coming from 15 years of Java a much easier transition to Clojure. I could write much nicer code using libraries I was familiar with, whilst I figured out what were the Clojure alternatives. But yes, Clojure has spoilt me and I try avoid using Java interop unless its the best alternative. For example, we had a go with wrapping the YouTube Java SDK with Java and was just so verbose... not a good advert for Java.
