to be FAIR i have not done that much traits stuff in rust!!!!!!! i've always just used the generic parameters and the only way i've seen people do trait objects is with the Box<dyn Trait> pattern!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i just thought it was really hard to do anything with traits in rust!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

me, trying to figure out how trait objects work in rust: :unsafe_ferris:

the rust book traits chapter, which i didn't think of rereading bc i thought i knew the stuff in it already: :ferris_smile:

[folding my hands together] so who was going to tell me that impl Trait syntax was a thing in parameters or was i supposed to find that out reading lecture notes myself doc.rust-lang.org/book/ch10-02

Neopronouns question 

@petrichor my guesses would be haer or haes, like their and his respectively, but youd probably be better off asking directly :)

me: yes, bumping down the version of this crate is a small change
the small change: x and y fields of a 2d vector can no longer be accessed by their fields, every instance of this has to be replaced with x(), y(), set_x(), set_y(), etc

i feel so bad for rust-analyzer whenever im messing around with dependencies bc i'm just hitting the big red button that says "build!!!" again and again

ssh tech mystery, help? 

For a few months now, when I ssh to one particular machine from Win10 via Putty or WinSCP, after entering valid credentials I get this error: "remote side unexpectedly closed network connection." For Putty, this happens on stable 0.74, the current dev snapshot, and even an older version, 0.60. WinSCP is the latest stable version.

When I ssh from the same machine, booted into linux, it works fine.

I found only unanswered support threads googling for the error message.

“The term ‘diversity’ has been understood as a replacement term, taking the place of earlier terms such as ‘equal opportunities’ or ‘antiracism’... There is a great deal of suspicion within [the HE sector] that the term ‘diversity’ is an import... critics suggest that the increasing use of the language of diversity reflects the spread of of a US managerial discourse... diversity can be used as a way of making the university into a marketplace.”
