Pinned toot

I'm teaching my daughter 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 ? 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.

My son (6 yo) has finally discovered shattered pixel dungeon and today we lost to the goo. Maybe next time I'll do better.

@emacsen FFmpeg's ogg muxer never randomizes serial numbers, so you don't need to disable it.
Also, forgot, FFmpeg will embed library version number into encoded files.
To disable all non-determinism in FFmpeg, just add -fflags +bitexact when encoding or remuxing. You don't need to disable creation date saving, that option disables it implicitly.

FFmpeg doesn't currently support muxing cover art images into .opus or .ogg files, so you don't need to worry about that.
If support is implemented, it'll still be deterministic, even if it has to transcode the image, since the option I mentioned will still do what it's supposed to, and it's global for all filters/encoders/muxers.
If you're looking to still have cover art images with Opus, you can use the MP4 container, which supports them, supports Opus, and Opus-in-MP4 has been supported and used by browsers and streaming websites for many years now.

“I have joked that I might change my name to Sample User, develop a piece of land in the country, and name my road Example Avenue, taking address 123,” notes one programmer. “This would make me impervious to datamining, because my results would always be thrown out.”

Calling all beta testers!

Over 200 bug-fixes later, Inkscape 1.1beta has launched and is ready for you to test away!

Your help will improve the final 1.1 version that will launch later this Spring.

deputy ED and CTO have also resigned. the only people left in leadership appear to be rms and his friends.

@cwebber woot! 100% green MediaGoblin test run under Guix - just one dependency to upstream and a few to upgrade

25: Governance, Leadership, and Founder's Syndrome

What is governance? To what degree are leaders within a governing institution subject to its rules? We use this framework to discuss the unexpected announcement of RMS's re-appointment to the FSF board.

DNS is just vanity license plates for IP addresses 🤔

Nearing 2,000 signatures—and not just nobodies. There are several well-known individuals and organizations represented here, including founders and board members of large, wuffesscu open source projects.

Nokia Bell Labs has transferred Plan9 to the Plan9 Foundation. Editions 1, 2, 3 and 4 have now been released under MIT license by the foundation. Enjoy

No LibrePlanet organizers (staff or volunteer), speakers, award winners, exhibitors, or sponsors were made aware of Richard Stallman's announcement until it was public.

I'm several months behind and listening to 22 crafting the past and I realized (I'm sure I'm not the first) that a catch-all costume for Ren faires or battle reenactments is a star trek costume with tricorder.

@Jase the future is what concerns me. Stallman is a dinosaur and the FSF desperately needs to modernise IMO. The fact that they said "we wanted to do a video, but didn't know how" speaks volumes.

If we want to continue enticing people into FOSS, the FSF needs to up its game.

PantherX public beta in 2021? Absolutely! We're not there yet, but it is looking good! In ~ 2 weeks, we'll have a new developer joining. More attention for C++/Qt. Stay tuned.

The knight only needed one arrow to bring down the wolf.
"Thank you," the shepherd said, "the beast took my lambs."
"It's my duty."
"It's not like protecting ladies, though."
"It's not a knight's duty to protect ladies. It is our duty to stop men abusing and assaulting others."
