node sync on RISC-V board going steady at 26.4% now

Is anyone of you operating an #IPv6 -enabled #mail server and would be willing to donate logfiles to a master #student whose #thesis about v6 #spam #filtering I'm supervising?

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++ 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++ : . 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. ;)

One thing that I want to see more of in the future is what e.g. #rust is doing:

Find the things that depend on your thing -- in their case every single crate published -- and treat them all as integration tests for your API.

#nix and #guix make this easier. I just discovered the brilliant #nox tool, where you can do `nox-review wip` on e.g. a bumped dependency and build and test every dependee.

Imagine if every project did this before releasing their point release! (and at the same time imagine that the dependees have decent tests, of course, otherwise you're just detecting whether you broke API signatures, and that's trivial to do without looking at any code except your own)

I hope Minsky Moment is finally here. Brace yourself.


I have a feeling that Urbit in 8 years is going to be like BTC is today. :]

You can thank me in 8 years. :D

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.

Some #imag #advertising would really be nice. I'd love to have more contributors.

Tools missing right now: mail, calendar, wiki, ledger, movie/music organization, news, recipe, shopping, fitness, ... For example.

So if you know someone who wants to program #rust and has time to spare... :-)

if you have a personal web log, please reply with the url!

an attempt to collect everyone’s blogs - so as to not let precious non-commercial content go unread and unnoticed - is likely the only time i’ll ever ask:

please boost this toot.

@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.

This weekend I went full . Expect "Never go full " posts in a week or two.

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.
