          That’s… a great question. What’s the purpose of a gif with only one frame?

            You’re young. Young enough to have to google my username meaning. Maybe also google what GIF means: Graphics Interchange Format. Long tima go you could find images on the internet, and they were always GIF, because JPG didn’t exist.

            But yes, it’s quite strange nowadays, I agree <grin> Oh, yes, I used the net before smileys were a thing :-)

              I’m not quite that young. Netizen is a “citizen of the internet”, IIRC. More specifically, it’s a portmanteau of “internet” and “citizen”.

              I had also heard what the meaning of GIF was, though not so often that I could remember it off the top of my head.

              I’m not quite as old as the JPG format, but I do still remember using dial-up. I still remember accidentally logging into the internet when my dad was on the phone one day. I could hear his voice through the computer speakers. I immediately closed the browser. It was something that’d, surprisingly, never happened while I was on the computer before.

            The same purpose as a PNG or JPEG?

            You know that GIF is not specifically a format for animations, right? It’s just a lossless image format.

              Yeah, but it’s almost always used for animations. Seeing one that’s not animated just feels… weird.

                Now, that’s just a recent development. 20 years ago it was a common format for images on the interwebs.

    It’s always funny naming a function which removes a child object from a parent object. I’ve stuck with “abandon child” so far.

      Look, we already got rid of “Master/Slave” in favor of things like “Parent/Child”, “Active/Standby”, or “Primary/Secondary”. We’re not making more changes because right-wingers are afraid of everything.

        tbh i think “master” terminology is only bad if paired with “slave”. the word itself kinda just lost it’s original meaning
        but I don’t really care about git’s change. im only using master out of habit

      Oh yeah that was a shitshow. I made a point to keep “master” in my repos and configurations because it’s the other meaning of master - one of the many others. Words are allowed to mean different things, ya know? If I’m drinking some coke I’m certainly not drugging myself (…I hope).

      After all, the command to attach to a master is not “git slave”, it’s “git pull”.

    I like how at the start of the line it explicitly says “out of memory” but we’re just pretending this is some satanic bullshit.

    She obviously read the error to find “kill process” and “sacrifice child” but still ignored the memory error

          You have so much to learn about people who feed into the Satanic panic. Cherry picking is by definition how they get there. One of Alex Jones biggest boggiemen for years was a subsection of a law that allowed medical testing on troops, and he always ignores the very next section that states that it all requires informed consent. Then lies and act like people would have no idea.

          During covid he found an exercise that tried to assume 4 different future scenarios that may come into play, and ignored the positive leaning ones or nuetralish ones and went straight for the heavily authoritarian exercise because it used a possible pandemic as a background setting, then claimed it was all planned out and proof Covid was a bioweapon attack.

          People like this willfully ignore things that give context, and will often repackage it without the context anytime they can.

            So “sacrifice child” is a common term used in what language? I don’t believe in religion but I also don’t know a whole lot about computer science. So I would believe you if you said it meant something.

            But seeing the words “sacrifice child” would rightfully startle anybody. It’s nothing to do with cherry picking or satanic panic. It’s everything to do with those two very specific words being right next to each other. Nothing else.

              Part of the whole panic and cherry picking thing is also an important next step: refusal to do proper research. A simple web search would correctly show you that it’s harmless. One might also find sources that claim it’s actually satanic, but they’d find those in blogs, social media, or message boards, while legitimate and official sites would show the correct info.

              It’s up to the person to determine which one is correct. Most logical people would go with the simplest and least sensational definition being the correct one, while those with a conspiratorial mind view would ignore such common sense and choose to panic.

                It’s still very jarring. Attributing it solely to satanic panic is wild though. It’s just someone’s first reaction to seeing something. Not everyone does research before having a natural human reaction.

                  Well, we don’t really care about a natural emotion reaction in yout head. Once you start spreading it around and claiming something about it, then its a problem. If you just spread it as a “look at this weird thing I found, isn’t it funny?” That’s also fine. However, if you start spreading it like “can you believe this?” without checking into it, then you’re either gullible to the point of the internet being dangerous for you, or you’re complicit.

      What? How does her being weirded out about the words “sacrifice child” mean she ignored anything? It doesn’t matter what triggered the error, she is questioning why the code has dark word combinations

    While most people on Lemmy are going to know what this means, the person who wrote this error message was definitely trying to be cute with that phrasing.

      So my first role as a developer I’m working on an application that runs various classes for children, the parents sign up but it’s children they’re booking for.

      We use reactstrap and there is a package called buttonasync and it has a method of executingChildren, let’s say I was a little confused.

      return (
                  <Form onSubmit={onSubmit}>
      				<FormGroup>
                          <Label htmlFor="name">Name</Label>
                          <Input type="text" name="name" placeholder="Name" value={props.name} />
                      </FormGroup>
      
      				<ButtonAsync type="submit" color="primary" isExecuting={isSaving}
      					executingChildren={<><FontAwesomeIcon icon="spinner" spin /> Saving...</>}>
      					<FontAwesomeIcon icon="save" /> Save
      				</ButtonAsync>
                  </Form>

    When sacrificing the child, use a dagger made from obsidian. Cut upward from below the sternum, then force the rib cage apart. Push the lungs aside with your hands, then cut out the heart with your ritual dagger. Hold the heart up to the cheering crowd, and then place it in an earthen vessel in honor of the gods. Kick the body down the steps of the temple pyramid.

      This ritual is common, but it has a bug in it that can be traced back to a specific SacrificeOverflow comment.

      Actually no. A transsternal access to the heart is impossible with stone tools, even obsidian. Middle american ritual sacrifices were performed transphrenic – they had less problems with the complications of that access as they didn’t intend their victim to survive, in contrast to — most — modern surgeons.
