@tomasino Yes! I think it's that the vast majority of my shell code addresses a real actual problem.

I also find writing POSIX-compliant shell code to be a nice change from Bash and it feels like the "good citizen" thing to do.

I really enjoy shell scripting.
Maybe I'm a masochist?
Maybe the awfulness of shell is blown out of proportion.

Writing greenfield shell is so much nicer than the Ruby code I'm contending with on a daily basis. :-)

@sconlan Eventually you'll be nearly as confident and comfortable using that as you are with a disposable.

I use a combination of disposable and safety now. I prefer the shave of the safety razor for larger, flatter surfaces and for trimming my sideburns.

The disposable is better if the hair is still short.

Wow! Trying to get MAME working is not a task for the weak-willed.
I manage my own self-hosted "cloud" on a private VPS with TLS, but I couldn't figure out how to get Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo to work in MAME.

I'm leaning towards Juri so far. Not quite as easy as Ryu to play, but really *fun* to play!

Sweet! I just beat arcade mode on the easiest setting in Ultra Street Fighter IV!

Wow! Ultra Street Fighter IV runs perfectly on my Oryx Pro running Pop!_OS via SteamPlay. I'm truly impressed.

@whami That's amazing.
I'm glad you moved on! :-)

My review was decent. Not bad, but a few areas to improve on and some good respect.

Isn't review time weird?

I'm not expecting a positive review, but I also feel like I have very solid ground on which to stand.

I am like 99% sure I have nothing to worry about with regards to job security, but somehow that doesn't seem to matter.

Having to invoke lambdas in Ruby with `.call` is really annoying. And `.(...)` is even worse, so don't even. :-P

I just picked up a digital copy of Garou: Mark of the Wolves.

It seems I am jumping in with both feet to this fighting game thing.

I ordered Ultra Street Fighter IV.
Unfortunately it probably won't arrive until after the holidays.

I'm pretty excited. I've never really grokked fighting games before.

@ink_slinger I do that one very frequently as well.

I beat the first two problems.
I had an annoying bug with the second problem where I forgot to `continue' in a loop and it caused bad things.
