TWiR quote of the week


Another one that I’m probably not going to use this week, from #rust-internals

11:51 < eddyb> aturon: well, doener is investigating some Drop Ex Machina that also makes the type "own managed"


Somebody say something funny this week.


Fear not, this is Rust, not some scruffy loosely-typed, garbage-collected, non-blocking language!

nrc | If we had a Rust equivalent of JSON
nrc | we should have a basic version and call it brson!

Nick Cameron - #rust-internals


Thank you! Keep 'em coming!


Two days until the next TWiR!


qdwang | so I use HashMap<Vec<Rc<SomeStruct>>, u32> to detect a Vec<Rc<SomeStruct> index

qdwang - #rust

I have no idea what he is trying to do

Also note that he seemed to think that this was an improvement over HashSet<Rc<ComplexStruct>>


-*- jdm shivers
<jdm> I want my furnace to start working again

Everywhere. Everyday. :slight_smile:


stackoverflow, @shepmaster: This would be a good example of what Rust helps prevent, but you’ve

< reem> I’m quite interested in discovering this HTTP/2 library, but I can’t bring myself to read four paragraphs of small caps

Thanks for bringing the quotes again this week!


kmc: “Rust follows semver. The major version number is the 160-bit integer corresponding to the object ID of the head git commit on master.”


<Savago> I have the gut feeling that some of this crazyness could be fixed if ImageCache went through an overhaul.
<Ms2ger> Congratulations! You own the image cache now


The motto of pretty much every “web” technology should be: “It seemed like a good idea at the time”

That, or “For legacy reasons”
