⏱ High response time (~14 days)
No dark mode. It's seriously just paper!😒
Check it out!

When I first saw this post, I was suspicious of what it could do. However, I decided to try it out, thinking what could go wrong? I mailed them a simple python script print('hello world!') and waited. Quite a while later, I received a piece of paper with the following on it.

Ran in 69.420 weeks
Output: Stop Wasting our time!!!

It was at this moment that I realized that repl.it wasn't lying. This is truly a breakthrough in technology. 10/10

My cousin worked there as a human compiler and said it was great, until one day, someone sent him a program with an infilite loop. Never saw him since. Poor guy...

Can't wait for the "Pidgeon Post" sending option!

and even better, repl.it supports coffeescript so we can now do HyperText CoffeePot Control Protocol over IPoAC!
ive been waiting for this moment for years!

Truly a marvel of modern software engineering.

@Xeoth I agree; the next step must surely be to obtain funding to build an automated warehouse for processing the overwhelming influx of code.

Do you accept telegrams or faxed documents?

Technology Breakthrough

AmazingMech2418 (1086)

Wait, is this real? I honestly thought at first that it would just be a downloaded version of Repl.it that doesn't use Internet... However, with this, all that is needed now is a neural network (or whatever else you want to use) handwriting reading AI that reads handwriting from scanned paper to then figure out what the code is and then run it and print out the results to be mailed. Though on the jobs page, there actually is one titled "human compiler" (well "human-compiler.txt" since it is based on the Linux terminal apparently).

Yasss!! Just like the good old days!

Actually we need an offline software to use 🙄

Isn't quite strange how only mods upvoted this?
It takes 14 days to respond???
