The incomparable Andy Steward wrote a new #Emacs extension allowing us to run any #Qt program in Emacs to extend Emacs!? I’m just staring at the screenshots.
I had a weird problem: #Emacs would reliably lock up any time I tried to save a file on a drive mounted over sshfs. Turns out Emacs lock files (weird symlinks that don't point to actual files) where somehow not interpreted correctly over sshfs. Emacs ended up in an infinite loop trying to create and verify the symlink. My solution was to simply disable lock files, like this: (setq create-lockfiles nil). I've never had any use for them anyway 🙂
I thought I'd document this somewhere 😉
Excellent talk on Teaching Haskell by @cercerilla. If you want to advocate for any programming language, watch this talk. If you want to sell software to a company with extreme NIH, watch this talk. Tech adoption is not about the tech. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9rl1UXLxMY&=&feature=youtu.be
Officially put out today, and it's the largest ever release.
GIMP 2.10 is the result of six years of work that originally focused on porting the program to a new image processing engine, GEGL.
The new version ships with far more new features, including new and improved tools, better file formats support, usability improvements, revamped color management support, a plethora of improvements for digital painters.
Hypercard up and running in basilisk II emulating system 8.
Going to re-acquaint myself with my favorite development tool (for the first time in more than 10 years) so that I can get an entry together for the Hypercard Zine.
Putting together a blog post for sometime this week on how to get it up and running (it's easy!) and then another one on how to use Hypercard (it's also easy!)

Any other compliance publications/guidelines of interest and relevance specifically for #Australia around data security at rest/in motion similar to UK's GPG13/PMO, NIST or US' HIPAA? I have #OAIC's Privacy Act and Australian Signals Directorate - Information Security Manual to start with. Currently doing research on compliance requirements in Australia around data security.
