I shouldn’t have posted that so late in the evening. I meant to ask is anyone has very good Pulsar understanding and can help configuring our Pulsar cluster, not Kafka. But if you’re all telling me we should use Kafka instead, I’d like to hear that too of course.

gklijs06:01:01

Don't Pulsar has some community / user group / mailing list. As they don't need to know anything about Clojure, I assume. Like in the other tread, they seem complementary rather than replacing one for the other. But I don't know the application so it could be Kafka would be a better fit.

Stefan07:01:11

Yeah I’m joining their Slack now.

mauricio.szabo23:01:01

BTW, I would not recommend Kafka. I've seen it being used for all the wrong reasons, so if Pulsar is working with you, it's better to stay with it 🙂

clojure puts the fun in function

anyone holding GME shares right now? 🙂

I'm not brave enough to gamble with these meme stocks!

vlaaad20:01:59

it's not just a meme though

Stuart20:01:53

It just doesn't seem like a good business. I guess it depends if you think they can pivot into online. Im not convinced.

Stuart20:01:20

I think the price is irrational.

Stuart21:01:28

These people on reddit wsb are financial lunatics.

vlaaad21:01:08

the price is rational, that's the thing

vlaaad21:01:32

it is rational because of the asymmetry of supply/demand. if there are 10 shares, and shorters have to buy 15 shares because they decided to sign such a contract, the price will go very high because there are just not enough shares

Stuart21:01:42

When I say rational, I mean it seems, imo, to be unlinked to gamestops viability as a business.

Stuart21:01:25

I mean, its a high street game stop in the middle of a pandemic..

vlaaad21:01:59

yes, it is not related to fundamentals, but technicalities make the price run up

Stuart21:01:04

I feel the same about tesla. I like the cars but the share price seems more linked to musk than fundamentals about tesla

vlaaad21:01:53

actually after reading about GME and getting into it I understood WTF was going on with tesla

Chase00:01:10

Same. It's been quite a fun ride (and I just paid off my credit card balance with it) but I've also learned quite a bit immersing myself in the chaos.

simongray08:01:57

My friend bought some a few days ago and from what I can tell they've already more than doubled in value. Anyway, while the explosive growth right now is artificial, perhaps the previous value of the stock was too. I think the analysis that made r/wsb finally jump on it was pretty sound: https://youtu.be/GZTr1-Gp74U

noisesmith20:01:37

there is a spreadsheet for linux called "SIAG" (scheme in a grid), so why not use excel as "HIAG" (haskell in a grid)

Hi guys, I'm looking for something I was using in my previous install for clojure, transforming #{} (partial ) (comp ) in some fancy characters. I was looking for a font but I guess it is something else.

dgb2321:01:59

sounds like ligatures. I believe depending on the editor you need to enable them

Stuart22:01:14

In intelligent you can use clojure pretty symbol plugin. Also a nice font with ligatures is first code.

blak3mill3r22:01:15

@caumond that sounds like prettify-symbols-mode in emacs

Stuart22:01:31

Fira code. Bloody autocorrect.

caumond22:01:47

yes, exactly, I'm using spacemacs !

caumond22:01:38

with practically's setup, so

Thx to all

Man, from this pandemic I really miss going out and getting tacos. I've not had a taco in probably almost a year. Or steamed buns, or pork baus. And no one near me does decent deliveries of these things. 😞
