Any programming language VM researchers on mastodon?

Today I learned that on Linux a system call may not switch to kernel space: 0xax.gitbooks.io/linux-insides

people. Can I encode a rpath using cargo?

Via @laurencetratt on twitter: Today is the last day to register for S-REPLS soft-dev.org/events/srepls8/ -- we've got a good crowd already, but there are still a handful of places left. Free and open to all!

Installed the twitter android app a few days ago and it's already driving me crazy with its constant irrelevant notifications.

Eh.. The film "selfless". Just compared Einstein to Steve Jobs. And the Apple product placement hasn't gone unnoticed.

So, part of EV (Electric Vehicle) etiquette is that you are only supposed to take up a charger for 4 hours. So I make it a point that early afternoon, I move my car to a normal spot.

I seem to be the only one who does this. I ran late this morning, and all the cars there this morning are still there. None of them were pulling a charge any more (battery totally full).

So, the only guy who was still pulling a charge moved his vehicle. (Not that the battery wasn't almost full).

Writing threaded C code gives me a new found appreciation for what is aiming at.

USB can draw max 510 mA apparently bc it's a one byte field in 2mA units ...
