sjmielke So,`fork()` usually returns the PID of the child and 0 if you are that child... well and -1 if it fails!
But do you know what happens when you `kill()` process -1?

skglas die Politik hat NICHTS gelernt. Wie unreflektiert, naiv, fachlich falsch und kurzsichtig kann man sein, dort, wo monokulturen bereits erwiesenermaßen schaden anrichteten, weiter auf sie zu setzen. Ich denke ans Ende von LiMux twitter.com/chaosupdates/s…

Women usually represent ~40% of ENS agrégés

brynguist Think about it: every time a stranger is close enough to be ambiguously flirty, they are by definition too close for safety! Think of all the time and energy I will save, not having to figure out how to politely exit conversations I never asked to be part of. "Six feet, dude"👩‍🍳👌

brynguist turned around to make eye contact, and said sternly, "Six feet, dude." You should have seen the look on his face! He was shocked, embarrassed, thrown off course! *I* made *him* feel small. *I* made *him* wish the interaction wasn't happening. Just, "Six feet, dude." Incredible

emilymbender If so, this reminds me of my NWAV(E) 1998 paper looking at side-effect changes when American English authors stopped using he for referents of unknown gender. (Never got around to publishing that...)

emilymbender So now I'm wondering: was that odd order produced so that "required at the UW" would be a substring that could be hyperlinked to the UW's mask policy? And if so, is the practice of hyperlinking putting subtle pressure on languages & slowly changing word order possibilities?
