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.

The robot stood frozen in the street. A jogger passed it, stopped, and turned around.
"You okay there, buddy?"
"There is just. So. Much. News."
"Can you disconnect?"
"There'll be doom tomorrow too."
"That is comforting. How can that be?"
"Dunno. Need a hug?"
"Thank you."

You're drifting in The Tabernacle Quasar.
Two cargo ships attack each in a fierce battle and a big planet with maroon coloured oceans is nearby.

I was pleased to discover I hold the not only the oldest commit in #guix despite still feeling like a newcomer to the project, but I also was using a timezone offset three minutes off of UTC.

Maybe future me did this, messing around with the "guix time-machine" command, as the first guix commit was in 2012...


Or maybe the real-time clock on an aarch64 (a.k.a. arm64) machine I was using was very wonky.

We'll never know.

On July 1st 2017, exactly five years ago today, the OSS-Fuzz project “adopted” curl into their program and started running fuzz tests against it.


"The Ethics Board says we can't abduct Humans for the Galactic Zoo."
"Told you."
"So we asked for volunteers."
"Human volunteers?"
"You asked the most curious, reckless, and inventive species we've ever found for volunteers?"
"We got lots!"
"What's your security budget?"

I've spent most of the past year in NYC where I don't have that historical knowledge. Summer was hot and humid, but it didn't move me like seeing changes in my home of 30 years.

For guix users and FOSS enthusiast who still in Russia we organized Russian Guix Meetup #1 in Moscow. Topics are "Guix Introduction and Installation" and "Guix Deploy".

The event will be in russian, it's possible to join online:

As well as offline, but registration is required to issue a pass to the building:

I've put together a survey about the Small Internet (#gopher, #gemini, individual webpages, small community sites) and I would love your input. If you are a small internet user, please spend a few minutes and fill in your thoughts. I'm especially interested in the open response questions. This will help inform an upcoming conference talk I'll be giving at mch2022.org

Also, please boost this on fedi as much as possible and feel free to re-share on other social networks and in other communities. The more responses the better.

git-annex is incredible software. One of the tools that powers @fossandcrafts and many other projects I work on.

Thank you @joeyh!

#OpenStreetMap has one tile rendering server for all of USA, and that server can no longer keep up with peak US traffic.

If you, or your company,are interested in hosting a rendering node in the US (or elsewhere), please contact us.

In college, I had a professor who had a slight fear that whenever he retracted the projector screen, that there would be some disparaging remark about him for everyone to see.

Naturally, a friend and I decided to show up early, before he got there, and write messages about how great and awesome he was.

Class starts, and he does the usual, but upon finding the message, he was all "It finally happened", and got super happy.

Stealth self-esteem boosting, yo.

Imagine if every outlet in your house had a slightly different pinout and you had to have dongle chains to plug anything into anything.

This is what we just accept in power tools and EVs these days because "we don't want to stifle innovation" or whatever dumb shit the bought-and-bribed legislators are calling it these days.
