@dnp1001 bem-vindo! tô lá no @hisham também pra postar em português :D

“[Gilead]’s rapid rise and fall of its hepatitis C franchise highlights one of the dynamics of an effective drug that permanently cures a disease, resulting in a gradual exhaustion of the prevalent pool of patients,” the analysts wrote. The report noted that diseases such as common cancers—where the “incident pool remains stable”—are less risky for business." [2]

"For a real-world example, they pointed to Gilead Sciences, which markets treatments for hepatitis C that have cure rates exceeding 90 percent. In 2015, the company’s hepatitis C treatment sales peaked at $12.5 billion. But as more people were cured and there were fewer infected individuals to spread the disease, sales began to languish. Goldman Sachs analysts estimate that the treatments will bring in less than $4 billion this year. [1]

Daqui a pouco no LHC em Campinas @hisham_hm falando sobre a ferramenta htop e outros projetos de código aberto.


It's my pleasure to announce htop 2.2.0! hisham.hm/htop/

Includes Solaris support, bugfixes and features for many platforms (Linux improvements, macOS High Sierra OS bug detection, OpenBSD battery reading, --tree option)

Many thanks to the awesome community!

"In perhaps the creepiest example, Facebook applied for (and received, last year) a patent for a tool called Techniques, for emotion detection and content delivery. It would use the camera in your phone to take pictures of you as you scroll through content. Facebook would then use facial analysis to measure how much you did or did not like the content in question, so as to determine what kind of stuff to send your way."


weeeeee! made my first PR to Mastodon, tweaking the Portuguese translation a tiny bit. "Viva o software livre!" :)

@Anna oi! você que fez a tradução do Mastodon pra pt-BR, né? eu pensei em sugerir uma mudança mas quis falar dela contigo antes de mandar um PR. O que você acha de trocar "Bem-vindo(a)" por "Boas vindas"? Eu sempre achei essa variante neutra sub-utilizada em softwares!

@sajith We have various plans of different stack sizes (Free plan is limited to passing arguments in registers)

The latency is only limited by the frequency you check the change of mutable data structures passed by reference! — Isn't that cool?

I'm going to disrupt the serverless market by introducing Procedures as a Service.

Forget Functions! With Hisham Cloud Procedures you get zero latency, because they never return!

Many languages supported, including Pascal, Ada and COBOL!

Great, I just realized my F10 key is not working.

(This old trusty Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 1000 has worked well for, I don't know, 10 years?)

But yay, time to buy a new keyboard, I guess?
