I'm teaching my daughter #scratch this coming school year. I'm planning on doing small lessonlets with her and then giving her time to play with it and explore. A lot like how I remember learning QBasic. It's not really about the language as much as exploring the constrains of the system and making art using code. I credit my computer teacher in 10th grade with helping me love computers. She learned along with us and encouraged us to explore what was possible within the bounds of the language.
Does anyone know about using shared libraries in #rust? I understand one can build a library and link to it from C but I need to know more about linking to it from other crates. I have passing knowledge about 'extern crate'. My goal is to build a given library once and link to it from other rust-written binaries.

I finally figured out #git-annex 's 'wanted' keyword. I can finally use 'git annex sync --content' without messing with groups and vicfg. Only took me 6 years or so.
For the first time in a few weeks, Cuirass managed to evaluate and build every derivation added yesterday: https://ci.guix.gnu.org/metrics.
Because nothing says “we’re trying to screw you” than denying you the opportunity to take legal advice.
QT Morrison: “If you get a lawyer we’re pulling the offer” has been replaced by many esports teams with “you have one hour to sign this or it’s gone.”
Arbitrary deadlines and pressure are usually proof you’re being taken advantage of. Demand time for proper legal review with your lawyer.
Nobody knows why some people insist on reading powerpoint presentations aloud during meetings and presentations. Kids like having books read to them. This is the adult version. #showerthought
@brennen At this point I have to confess that I have a liking to occasionally do some informal stress testing of my tools.
Filesystems that can hold a billion files, even if empty, are an achievement for Linux already.
What is the fastest way to delete a billion files? It used to be that find was faster than rm, is that still true?
Is ext4 or btrfs faster?
That kind of thing.
A one terabyte disk image with ext4 and a billion empty files, xzipped: 11 gigabytes.
Same but with btrfs: 4 gigabytes.
In case you were wondering.
http://git.liw.fi/billion-files/ has the scripts I used. I don't have a good way to distribute the images, at this time.
It's funny what toddlers learn.
When my little Jamie told me "There's a gorgeous man in the garden" I was at first impressed they had retained such a big word, but quickly learned they had somehow observed my spouse say "Hello gorgeous" whenever I was getting changed.
Needless to say, I wasn't expecting a naked elf, utterly lost in my backyard. I gave him a towel and some directions; and now I have a fae boon I'm hesitant to utilize.
I'm grateful for @joeyh's git-annex project. It has greatly improved my life.

No judgment , just #LOVE ❤️

I heard you talk about the airplane at the end of the episode. We live near a small airstrip and we must have a lot of people learning to fly. Every now and then it sounds like they're just circling around and around overhead so I'll make the tuh-tuh-tuh-tuh sound like we're being strafed.
