What happened to the Librem 11? It disappeared from the new @Purism web site!
"what is your greatest strength?" Show more
the interviewer asks. i came prepared for this one, and say quickly, "converting glucose into energy. my microbial ancestors worked hard to imbue me with this power, and i am proud to carry on the tradition."
"what is your greatest weakness?" Show more
the interviewer asks. this one is actually kind of embarrassing, but i decide to be honest. i say hesitantly, "i can't convert sunlight into energy," as i glance jealously at the potted plant near the door. i cover my eyes and struggle not to cry.

"Detecting the use of "curl | bash" server side" (as opposed to curl & save to a file).
Now this is some very clever, and scary, stuff. It's possible to detect if a #HTTPS request is being piped directly into #bash or just saved to a file. You can use this to send a different file (& commands!) only when it's going straight into bash.

Elixir's web framework Phoenix stores templates as linked lists of immutable strings. They are not concatenated until they are written to the socket.
Easy on the garbage collector. Easy on the CPU cache. No view cache. So clever!
Learning Elixir feels like winning the jackpot twice in a row: first functional programming, then massive concurrency.
I have a tendency to get overexcited when I discover powerful new tools, but both FP and concurrency are very hot right now, for good reason.
I am wondering what is the experience of other regular users, i.e. not language experts, or deeply involved in the ecosystem. Does Elixir live up to its promises? What are the downsides?
