TWiR quote of the week


wait when/where was this?


Everywhere. Everyday. :slight_smile:


stackoverflow, @shepmaster: This would be a good example of what Rust helps prevent, but you’ve
deliberately turned off the safety checks, and now we are back to C.


23:12 < chickensalad> steveklabnik: you should get free gyros for life, funded by the rust community


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

(with regard to /r/rust’s moving CSS-enabled tribute to Terry Pratchett)


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”

From a /r/rust thread on html5ever.

<mbrubeck> the 5 stages of loss and rust <mbrubeck> 1. type check. 2. borrow check. 3. anger. 4. acceptance. 5. rust upgrade


The borrow checker is a real tsundere. She’s cold and harsh about the
mistakes you initially commit in your code, but she’s a real sweetheart
for pointing at all the wrong things in your code. It’s just too bad
that some people don’t have the patience to warm up with her for a bit.
There’s quite a bit of dere in the borrow checker.

TWiR is fast approaching!


i was wondering, somewhat seriously, whether you actually do want to use the generic methods for
everything. as_ref::<[_]>() is almost graphically shark-jumping

- @aturon on #rust-internals


Diagnostics are the UX of a compiler, and so they’re deserving of the exact same care that is put into mobile app or Web design.

@pcwalton on HN.


@frankmcsherry on #rust:

<frankmcsherry> rust is like a big bucket of solder and wire, with the promise that you can’t electrocute yourself.


mwu in #servo

< mwu> I am about 2 errors away from rust’s next pile of errors though


Bump. A new TWiR is nearly upon us!


bstrie on #rust-internals:

Saraswat made the rules, we just enforce them :P


unsafe restricts which code could contain undefined behavior, but it doesn’t isolate the effects of that undefined behavior.


@aturon on backward-compat wizardry:

<aturon> i was backed into a corner, magic was the only choice
