🐌. Native speaker of American English. Linux user. Familiar with several programming languages in the procedural, OO, and functional paradigms.

Link rot is evil. Archive everything. The keyboard is king. Correctness over performance. Canonicalize, normalize, deduplicate. Don't repeat yourself. UTF-8 > UTF-16. Use static typing: good for tooling. Re-use; don't re-invent. Correctness, then clarity, then concision and elegance. Play devil's advocate. First understand opponents' positions.

comment Is Japanese really an agglutinative language?
This answer doesn't explain why the suffixes shouldn't be considered independent words, in which case Japanese could be called analytic!

comment What to say after someone dies
Technically, this depends on what you thought of the deceased, and also on whether the addressee is a member of the yakuza.

comment Pronouncing が as 'nga'
No. /gja/ doesn't sound like "nga" at all.
