I like lambdas because they look pretty. That is all.

syncthing was killing my battery on Android. When I finally got around to looking into it, turns out there's a github issue, a month's worth of debugging and discussion, and a fix that dropped about 10 days ago.

Love how you can see all this out in the open.

Why am I trying to push my friend to incorporate file name completion in his Pascal command line music player project for uni?

I'm slightly curious if it will give him the HD edge, especially if there's a library or similar that will do it :/

The GPL wasn't written for the developers installing code from npms or githubs.

It was for the user whose printer drivers didn't work with their new OS.

It was for the user who discovers a bug in a system they rely on every day to out bread on the table.

It was for the user whose needs extend beyond "does it work" to include "will this keep me from being hurt?"

Free software exists to give voice and medium to people who otherwise wouldn't have it. We'd be wise to remember that, since it cuts both ways.

Clearing up mild confusion...

Please know I *like* new features that are opt-in. I plan on using some of the upcoming features myself.

I just might point out potential pitfalls if you're trying to stay under the radar or are interested in very tight .

Use the feature, don't. *Your* call.

However, just be sure you understand the implications of making it easier to scrape your data 😉

Carry on.

I recently picked up a rather chunky IBM ThinkPad 380XD. The previous owner used Windows 95 on it. The installation of Internet Explorer still has a cache of MSN home page from August 8th, 1999 :)

Speaking of distributed computations, does anyone remember folding@home or seti@home? I wonder whatever became of those datasets. that was > 10 years ago, surely by now we have churned through a good chunk of that dataset.

Amy boosted

@chuck Both projects are still running. Seti@home is now running on BOINC, though Folding@home still appears to use its own network. Both can use GPUs.
