for their patience with my questions 😊

You know that (a) your server runs too stable and (b) you are getting old - when you reboot after a year and need to bruteforce your own disk password 🤦‍♂️

More quizzes at ! This time about integer promotion rules with @OptiverEurope. I guess coming in 5th out of 49 developers is not too bad 🤓

And my mistakes where mistaking my platform behaviour for standard behaviour (as usual 🙈).

Woot, my team, the "Uninformed Initialization" won the @conan_io Quiz on !

I missed , but now I am on my way to @meetingcpp for some exciting modern talks!

"The #OpenBSD Foundation receives the first Silver contribution from a single individual

Thank you John Carmack for the very generous contribution! The support will ensure that many important projects are moving forward and continue making impact."

Wir freuen uns zu sehen, dass die #Tagesschau ihr eigenes #FDroid Repo betreibt:

Das ist ein großartiger Schritt in die richtige Richtung! Das Repo enthält die offizielle App der Tagesschau, die leider nicht frei und quelloffen ist, obwohl sie durch Steuergelder finanziert wird.

Wenn es sich um öffentliche Gelder handelt, sollte auch der Code öffentlich sein! #PublicCode

Of course it runs !

This feels like an oversimplification, to an extent, but it's a good nutshell and shows the lie about Bernie et al being "socialists."

It's a sad state of affairs that the Overton window is so far right in the US that what would be considered normal social democracy in most of the world is seen as OMG COMMUNISM in the US.

Matthew Macy has now submitted a Call For Testing of #OpenZFS #ZFS native encryption for #FreeBSD 12-CURRENT users! Holy cow!
