Help wanted:

I need to rename this Emacs package before releasing it on Melpa:

The package goal is to organize git repositories in a single directory by a command allowing you to jump between git repos and clone new repositories from remote forges.

I’d like to find a descriptive name involving a terrible pun. The lamest, the better.

Do you have any fun ideas? (the pun will be properly credited if used of course!)

discussion on Hacker News:

OP: Safari's buggy and lags behind on web standards.

Response: Maybe you shouldn't be using all the newest features that Safari doesn't support in your app, Safari only supports features that make sense.

discussion on Hacker News:

OP: NVidia has a buggy support of Wayland in their Linux driver.

Response: Maybe you shouldn't be using Linux then.

Me: logs off to preserve sanity.

“Vetting the cargo”

“There are many ways to improve confidence in the security of a chunk of code. Writing that code in a memory-safe language is one such way […] But more than that is required and, in the end, there is no substitute for simply looking at the code and understanding what it does. […]

The cargo vet mechanism, built into Rust's Cargo dependency manager and build system, is meant to help with the task.”

My first CD Player. Bought this thing at Highland Appliance along with three CDs. This thing was my workhorse throughout highschool and parts of college until I got a different portable / stand-alone CD Player.

Sadly it doesn't work anymore. It has ceased its functioning. Rest easy, sweet prince.

Retroish computers. Its modern hardware in old cases. On the left has a ASROCK ITX board and the right a RPI3.

Hi friends,

For some reason Splinter Zone lost one review and is now again below the 10 review threshold on Steam.

If you've bought the game and enjoyed it, I would greately appreciate you leaving a positive review!

Finally named the boat. All credit goes to the 14 year old.

for lack of another SD card at home i couldn't test it myself yet, but here's the first image of Plan 9 / 9front for MNT Reform, if you'd like to test:

The entry is something else, i.e.

"All of Telegram's official components are open source,[19] with the exception of the server which is closed-sourced and proprietary."

What if Firefox and Chromium placed a year-long moratorium on all new browser features unrelated to security, accessibility, and internationalization? Effort not spent on those initiatives could be re-directed towards bugfixes.

Defining the word “major” might be hard but I think it’s an interesting idea.

I’m not too worried about including Safari since it could spend those months catching up.

#POSSE note from

USA UK negative 

I don’t understand how anybody could agree to extradite somebody to the USA unless they were themselves a country accused of committing acts of torture in prisons or war crimes abroad … ah, wait. 😭

I just recently read a piece in the Monde Diplomatique about the ICC and the fact that the US refuses to sign up still angers me.

For reference:
“The United States is not a State Party to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court … which founded the International Criminal Court (ICC) in 2002 as a permanent international criminal court to "bring to justice the perpetrators of the worst crimes known to humankind – war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide", when national courts are unable or unwilling to do so.

I find it pretty obvious that the national
courts of all the United whatevers “are unable or unwilling to do so”!

It's pathetic how easily war criminals managed to get everyone to hate on

People feel more 'conflicted' about him then Bush.

today in #omfilesystems:

"UFS is built in two layers, the Unix File System and the Fast File System (FFS). UFS handles the user-visible tasks like filenames and directories and the connections between them, permissions, and all those details. FFS does the ugly work of efficiently getting files onto disk in a way that makes them quickly accessible, so that when it has find and read a file it can do so efficiently. When someone talks about the innards of UFS, they’re really discussing FFS.

So let’s talk about the innards of UFS."
