node sync on RISC-V board going steady at 26.4% now
We really need a #nixos install image with default configs for #peertube #mastodon #ipfs and others where a user simply picks a hosted, installs NixOS from said image and boots the machine and then automatically provides services for the #fediverse
Maybe that would be an idea for some sprint this summer?
Writing #C/#C++ code is hard * because* it's easier to get it to compile. Writing Rust is easier because when it compiles you have a confidence that you didn't do something terribly dangerous. Example - real life people (probably quite competent) having a deep and dangerous misconceptions about C/C++ : https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=16298207 . You only know C/C++ well, when you are aware how paranoid you have to be.

In my humble experience, academic types really hate trees. I can't explain the size of margins on the whitepapers any other way. ;)
I hope Minsky Moment is finally here. Brace yourself.
Being an open-source maintainer is really hard. A lot of people tend to act very entitled towards you, as if you "owe" them your time or your attention.
It's totally illogical: you put something out there for free, and now because of that, folks feel like they deserve more of it! And yet this is often the prevailing mood in OSS communities.
At the same time, you may start to believe this logic yourself, leading to "open-source guilt." This often ends in burnout.

@uranther I think the original Bitcoin Script by Satoshi stroke the right balance and it wasn't Turing Complete, so the solidity (ha!) of the VM implementation didn't matter as much. Besides, it wouldn't have made sense to support a separate network just to hold a few bytes worth of code, that would have been an overkill.
It's just baffling that Ethereum became successful making so many bad design decisions afterwards.
There was not a single country that suffered more than Poland during WW2. 17% of population was killed (compare to 8% of Germany). There was also no country with more heroic acts of trying to save the Jews. And now we are supposed to get blamed for the Holocaust? Ridiculous.
Many Nazi concentration camps were in Poland because Polish citizens were being murdered there by German soldiers during WW2. 80 years later, corrupted media are trying to spin the whole thing using "polish death camps" term and make it look like Polish citizens were actually running the show, so Israel can extort huge money from Poland. While in the same time Israel is basically running their own concentration camp with Palestinians inside it. The absurd of the whole situation is crushing me.
