I officially moved my toots over @gsora@bsd.network 🙂

TIL about the term "cis", and that apparently cis is bad

I should move away from mastodon.social.

I feel like the global timeline is just too "general" for my interests. Maybe bsd.network might be more suited for me. Sadly they're still closed to new registrations 😟

Take a fucking bow, folks.


I’m all for speaking truth to power but I don’t understand screaming your version of someone else’s reality into their face while they categorically deny it & profess support for your cause until you break them down. What I’ve seen here is nothing short of bullying. And no, it doesn’t make it right because he was on a TV show once.

Don’t @ me. Or do; I know where the block button is & mine’s wired to mew like a kitten… it’s just the cutest 🐈

The more you know: "Poco" means "a little" in Italian. I think Xiaomi called the Pocophone this way because it has flagship hardware at a little price. A "Poco price".

#mastometa - SoC 

In a nutshell, I don't care.

Be whatever the fuck you wanna be, as long as you're not bullying/ghettoing anyone.

Just live your life!

#mastometa - SoC 

I feel like I'm one of the "bad people" because my profile doesn't mention any pronoun, and I don't really care about whatever the fuck is happening in the "good people" world. That's saddening and to be honest, quite not what I wanted from Mastodon. But eh, free speech is free speech. What if one of the bad guys builds his instance, and everybody else decide that he's not "worthy"? His instance would get blacklisted. That's basically a ghetto. A digital, federated ghetto.

I think I'm funny but I'm not 

"Les" is an ambiguous term. It could mean lesbians, it could mean fans of Les Paul guitars.

But hey, it's hot licks either way.

Uh, libbtc authors have taken into account the possibility of ports torwards non-standard OSes!

For example, through a game of 's you can implement different ways to source random data. The entire software stack has been built to just agree on an interface, not on inner implementation details.

That's good software engineering right there. And the fact that libbtc is entirely written in C, makes everything even cooler!

Looks like I have to
1) port libbtc to OP-TEE
2) understand how to link it in my trusted application
3) pray that no binary size restrictions will apply

Hell yes 👌

Today is the "gsora VS {m4, obscure embedded C practices}" day

Wow TIL I'm out of the loop regarding internet trolls, TERFs, Nazis and drama in general.

Maybe it's better this way!

What's up with all this hate towards Wheaton

I miss having an autocompletion system for C.

Everything I tried either doesn't work properly, or sucks. Maybe I'm too accustomed to the Go ecosystem. Maybe I'm too young.

Wondering how real C programmers do it. Plain vi and GCC?

1. If at all possible, do not use the computer

Theo De Raadt of #OpenBSD :

"According to de Raadt, every operating system is either adding the ability to disable Simultaneous Multi-Threading (Intel’s Hyper-Threading is a specific implementation of SMT) or modifying their schedulers “to avoid cotenancy on SMP cpus of different security domains.” ".

Every. Operating. System.

Great job, Intel.

Anybody here have direct contact with someone at NXP?

I'm trying to get in touch with their OP-TEE maintainer, without success :(
