I have 2 echos and 1 echo dot. I use them mostly for alarm, weather, music and giving timeouts to the kids (works surprisingly well), setting cooking timers, controlling the a/c, controlling the lights, asking for measurements when cooking and playing around with app development
I've used Google Assistant a few times and was frankly surprised when it was able to navigate me home.
No, because the current behavior of allowing inexhaustive switches is also good. We need something. Maybe just a symbol like *.
You can add an empty default branch.
If you already have a non-empty default branch, then it's either already doing what you want done in the new "non-exhausted" cases, or it isn't and you need to add new empty branches for these cases anyway.
Or... I'm posting late at night, missing something, and will regret this tomorrow.
Why should I have to type case _: break; no matter what? This isn't Rust. Safety should be the extra work, not unsafety.
There is a dish that we make occasionally that I do not have a name for, but it is basically grilled veggies with spaghetti with pesto.
Take three squash (yellow, zucchini, whatever is handy), a red onion, 2-3 ears of corn on the cob and a couple of bell peppers and slice them up in to grillable sizes. (1/2" slices for the squash and onion, bell peppers in to any size that won't fall through your grill grates) Coat everything with a few tablespoons of olive oil and season liberally with salt and pepper. I put all but the corn and onions in a large bowl so that I can toss it while I season it to make it easier and quicker. Corn and onions are put on a platter and drizzled and seasoned.
Heat your grill to high and start your water to boil. Grill all of the veggies until they have some good grill marks and light charring. Corn will take the longest and goes on first, squash next along with onions and peppers go on last. Pull all of the veggies when they are done and take them inside and drop the spaghetti in the water to cook while you chop the veggies up in to large but bite-size pieces and cut the corn off the ear and then toss with ~1 cup of pesto (I prefer to make my own as store bought is too oily for me, but store bought would work also).
Once the spaghetti is done, reserve a cup or two of the pasta water and drain well and toss with the pesto/veggie mixture. Season with more salt and pepper if needed, maybe drizzle over some lemon juice and add some chopped parsley and grape/cherry tomatoes sliced in half. If too thick, loosen it up with the pasta water.
Super yummy, pretty healthy (the pesto does add quite a bit of oil) and does not need any meat to go with it but a grilled chicken breast would probably pair well. Also, it makes a ton so you can either feed a crowd or have leftovers for lunch for the week.
Tonight for dinner I have had steaks in the garage fridge drying for a few days to be served with Austrian potato salad, grilled corn and grilled romaine.
Must be a matter of definition. To me, anything that happens in the first 1/3 of a book cannot be a spoiler.
Yes, that's still probably a spoiler in my definition, though it would depend on the details of what was revealed. Saying that something becomes irrelevant sounds like a spoiler no matter where it occurs.
A case can be made that the flags with those two options should be swapped around — or at least that the American flag should be with “English (Traditional)” and perhaps some other qualifier added for the English shown with the British flag.
Seems Traditional is right. We should have "Betterer"
As a different concern, any Earth life that might succeed in thriving somewhere else could potentially evolve into something outright deadly to all life on Earth without any of the environmental pressures present on Earth.
The idea of extraterrestrial invasive species killing all bacteria (and by extension every other living being) on Earth seemed a bit scary.
Then I remembered that a genetically engineered airborne bacterium that kills all of humanity is a much more real threat, and has been for quite a while. So that's a relief.
Exclusive franchise is a problem, but the bigger problem is ISP ability to prevent you from connecting to services.
If you have a properly free market, you can give that ISP the finger for such stupidity and go to a competitor to get the service you want. That's the whole fucking point of a free market. You might have to pay more to get that improved service (or perhaps not; perhaps you'd go for reduced service at a lower cost) but you at least stand a reasonable chance of getting what you want.
But if there's no choice, or only a choice between a small number of providers who only have a gnat's whisker of difference between their service levels and their prices, that market's not a free market but rather a monopoly or an oligopoly. In that case, there's no long-term incentive for anyone to provide a good service at all; after all, what are you going to do about it? Go to someone else? Ho ho ho…
@raceprouk It's almost like you don't need to completely rewrite the entire software stack (standard libraries, runtime, package manager, HTTP server) just to support a slightly different programming language.
