How to feed your dog vegan
  • That's correct, but dogs don't naturally eat a "vegan" diet, and there is evidence all over the place as to whether or not that's good or safe for them. I would tend to be ok with housing a dog, but not with what is essentially still an experimental diet.

  • I'm pretty sure that the entire scientific community would agree that dogs can't consent to a vegan diet. We don't force humans without consent, why would you force a dog to do that?

  • Dogs aren't, cats are. But I agree. Dogs can't consent to this insanity. This will be tough on the dog. If you can't handle that the dog isn't "vegan" then please give it to someone who can properly care for it. No dog deserves that.

  • POSIX.1-2024 has been published
  • Shell scripts were a mistake.

    I understand 1000% but I'm not sure I agree. With the peevishness of C and latent autism of assembly, something compiled or otherwise binary isn't always simple and straightforward. Sometimes, you have a task that only needs to be done three times, and just replaying the commands is sufficient.

    sh, ash, and bash are all kinda dumb. Absolutely. But there are other shells that are significantly better. csh and zsh are both great. ksh has some history on it but is good too. But "shell scripts" don't have to be in your shell language. The hashbang line will let you make a command file and so long as you can describe the command line you can get most shells to run it. Be that language line noise perl or python or even go.

  • Why don’t you like Apple?
  • Objective c, mostly. 😐

    But also the fact that other operating systems run better on their hardware. Linux on apple silicon outperforms macos on that same hardware. A tiny team is porting software to your platform almost completely in the dark.

  • Not you
  • It kinda feels like they did this to themselves in France at least. If they weren't so help bent on raising the requirement retirement age, people might've not flipped so hard. And of course it won't get fixed and they'll have other issues, but people don't often think that far ahead...

  • Anyone know what 'natural flavours' means on label packaging?
  • So, in the US, there are two categories of flavorings. There is "natural" and "artificial" and the ancient war between them is quite a story.

    All this started when people started to learn about what made things taste and smell like other things. All of this made growers of difficult foods very nervous. Why buy these strawberries that are weather sensitive and expensive to harvest when you can just synthesize the chemicals that make things taste like strawberry! So the lobbyists weighed in.

    The compromise was that foods flavored with actual plant or animal compounds were called "natural" while those that just used the chemicals would be called "artificial." This led to some interesting issues. Some natural flavors are actually dangerous to use. Apple seeds have heavy metals in them. It's tough to make sure when processing apples that you don't crush the seeds, or you might end up with arsenic (I think?) in your output, and at industrial scale you'd be concentrating it. So you have some flavors that are very expensive and hard to get safely, that it's easier to get with a safe chemical synthesis.

    In short, there's not and functional difference between natural and artificial flavors. They're largely identical except in how they've been acquired to added to your food. And as a bonus, "natural" was chosen intentionally as the name to cause a panic when looking at labeling because "good heavens what is artificial flavoring! I can't feed that to my child! It must be unnatural and dangerous!" Generally, artificial flavors are no more toxic or dangerous than the source food item itself. There could be issues in synthesis, like formaldehyde sneaking in if it's not controlled carefully, but in general the only difference is how they got what they're flavoring the food with.

  • Anon discovers .NET
  • Compiler output only marginally better than working with c++

    No one claims it's faster at runtime than good C++, it's just a lot easier to write decent code

    I think they're referring to warning and error content. Compared to things like rust, deciphering error notifications from the c# compiler can sometimes feel like trying to figure out what a child with limited vocabulary is trying to tell you.

    Even with decades of personal experience with it, they can be confusing and non-informative sometimes for me.
