I need to decide if “Project: Bradenburg” will be in C or C++.
I timed how long it takes to compile the last C version of the codebase: 2.4s.
I then timed how long it takes to compile the hybrid C/C++ version: 18s.
There's a qualitative difference there.
And I should note—it's the C version that's currently in use,
not the C++ version.
And then our resident C++ expert said that you should start a project in C++,
not convert a project from C to C++.
And from the “Puts the Fun in Disfunction Department” I noticed that there are warnings enabled on the compiler command line,
only for those warnings to be disabled in the source code
and the reason it runs so slow is that the optimization level is set to 0,
possibly to make the code easier to debug by looking at the resulting assembly code
It's also becoming clear that no one really knows who is using “Project: Bradenburg.”
The fun never stops.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
