Is this just pure autism or what?

I once had a few files with Japanese characters in them on an OS X system, and a .torrent file that I used to download them. I wanted to transfer them to a FreeBSD system using ZFS so I could seed them. I transferred them, along with the .torrent file, but even though the files were clearly there, my torrent client complained that it couldn't find them. I tried to figure it out for days and days - the path described in the .torrent file was obviously the same path to where the files were stored on the filesystem, all of the hashes checked out, they visually looked the same. I couldn't figure it out until I put both paths (the one on OS X where it worked and the one on FreeBSD) through hexdump, and saw that even though they looked completely identical, they were represented by a different sequence of bytes. After a bit more research I found out that the cause of this was HFS+ and ZFS having different normalization algorithms, and that the solution to this was to make a ZFS volume that didn't do any Unicode normalization, where everything then worked fine. I don't like Unicode much.

🕴 Man in Business Suit Levitating may now be able to be transformed into a woman with new emoji "attribute" codes.

Am I just really out of touch with the rest of society, or is the <1% of people that care about this level of political correctness actually worth the time and effort?
I think most graphical color emoji are all ugly as hell anyway. I'd prefer if they just made them look more cartoonish like LINE stickers or something.

are you ready for the selfie unicode /tech/? I can't wait until they add in a preteen girl holding up a spork.

Why not just throw in specific scenes from movies? We could sure use those

Daily reminder that Emoji was a mistake.

▶Anonymous 03/19/16 (Sat) 23:09:41 No.546786

Sure, why not, since we're adding everything else under the sun to unicode now. Tbh I don't really care that much though.

▶Anonymous Linux Mint 03/19/16 (Sat) 23:17:56 No.546792>>546876


More than a mistake. An aggressive cancer.

Thank the Japs for this shit.

>>546738 (OP)

how much unicode space is unused? why don't they just save it for when new writing systems appear?

You could've just posted a screenshot of the thread, I'm pretty sure everyone knows what a selfie is. But whatever.

I don't really see the point in doing this since it's not like most people will know how to "type" emoji like that anyway (like knowing the actual keyboard alt sequence to produce it, or by using something like japanese keyboard input)
I'm sure for 99% of their usage people will just be accessing them from some built in menu in whatever they're using. Can't those sites just build whatever emoji they want as a site feature? Most people wouldn't even know the difference.

You'rce totally right, i agree - emoji should just be a markup language. not part of the text system itself. its absurd..
