They want to thank them by offering what any Slavic grandmother would

I still need to find a good sampler plugin that is open source. I'm not really happy with any of them.

I also need plugins for effects and mastering, but I know there are a bunch of these that are great.

Hello everyone

Begpost, urgent, please boost 

Since my last post I had about $300 in new charges for my car repair sneak up on me to get my vehicle inspected and more than a pretty penny in Lyft rides to get to the repair shop, just so I can get it repaired.

Additionally, if you could spare anything for food or bills that I could really use help paying I would be immensely grateful. My abusive parent that was previously helping pay them can not be relied upon any further, so anything you can give really helps, and would give me peace of mind when I really need it. Thank you

Sex or politics -- you decide!

A large polyamory org (or perhaps several) are promoting a vote for an 'official' polyamory flag in November.

I'm not sure how I feel about this, but if it's going to happen, I hope as many queer/PoC/both polyam folks vote as possible bc this org was very very straight/white/cis last time I connected with them.

Here's link the voting website for folks interested.

I wonder if there's a site anywhere for freelance teaching -- like, someone who knows something about a number of subjects could sign up and list

  • the things they can teach about
  • the minimum they'd need to make per hour to make it worthwhile
  • maybe some other logistical details like the number of sessions they could teach per week, when they're available, whatever...

...and then potential students sign up, typing in however much they're willing/able to spend per class... and the site notifies the teacher when the worth-my-while limit has been reached, and the potential teacher could decide whether to go ahead with it.

It'd probably need to be more complicated than that in order to be really effective/workable, but that's the basic idea. ...and I'm just wondering if it's been done already.

I knew what a Programmable Read-Only Memory "PROM" was before I ever heard about high-school "proms". I was honestly baffled when I saw the term referenced in a school context, and assumed it at least was something technical in nature.

Can I have my geek license now.

One thing I did wish had:

Constructor overloading,

I don't need or want overloading of regular functions, much less operators; just constructors.

This keeps coming up in various contexts, but one obvious need-case is where you want to wrap the result of a native function like stat() which normally returns an array, but will return a bool FALSE on failure.

Note: not a NULL, which could be allowed for with ?array as the type, but bool FALSE.

Yeah, I know, PHP 8 will let me do array|bool and I guess that will work... when Mint upgrades to PHP 8...

...but there are other cases where I want to initialize with different parameters altogether...

Yeah, sure, I can do a blank constructor and then have a set of named functions for each initialization type; sure; that'll work.

It just means instead of a tidy single-line transfer of control, I have to do an if-structure and the initialization logic ends up being implemented by the caller instead of the class...

Yeah, yeah, okay, I can have the constructor accept an untyped parameter instead of trying to constrain it to the expected types, and then do the logic in the constructor. FINE. OKAY. You've CONVINCED ME.
