Honestly if anyone's gonna solve the impossible programming problem of the century, it's not gonna be a silicon valley startup looking to optimise their subscription-based ingredient delivery service, it's gonna be the guy who makes dwarf fortress because one day he decided to try and implement something like randomly generated recessive genetic disorders in sheep
@Dayglochainsaw when you're right, you're right
That sounds really very plausible.
@Dayglochainsaw Toady is a fuckin mad lad and will absolutely accidentally solve some huge problem trying to add yet more depth to Dorf Fort
@Dayglochainsaw *remembering the DF update logs*
...Fuck. You know you're probably actually right. XD
@Dayglochainsaw Dwarf Fortress is our best hope for strong A.I.
@Dayglochainsaw and then some other guy steals the idea and becomes a billionaire off of it
@Dayglochainsaw Or the idiot that put a full AMD64 VM inside Minecraft to run Minecraft in Minecraft.
@Dayglochainsaw reminds me of what @va_shiva said on his work on email being disputed by the institutions that invention can only happen in institutions and nowhere else.
@Dayglochainsaw And he's probably be relatively broke af.
@Dayglochainsaw You don't think it'll be the search engine or social media giant who figures out how to achieve a 100% conversion rate?
You know what?
I like you. Hence I concluded, its not going to hurt (hoit) to follow you.
