Slowness of file system on Windows is astounding. I have an SSD that can do gigabytes of I/O per second, even in small blocks. And yet, moving a directory of small files in Windows can slow down to kilobytes per second.
And I don't even have an antivirus, specifically because they make this terrible situation even worse.
Excellent article. Shows how to design an async trait in #Rust, given its limitations around generics and lifetimes:
My mini review of #Manjaro as someone who doesn't like to micromanage computers:
+ It has installed on my NVMe + NVidia PC, unlike most other distros
- PackageManager UI is weird with it's "Apply transaction" thing, but works.
+ Nice that CLI auto-installs missing things
- NetworkManager eats 100% CPU all the time
- It goes to sleep even though I set all power-saving to off?
- I don't see an easy way (not "edit obscure config files") way to remap Caps Lock to Ctrl (must-have for ex-macOS user)
Looks like #Rust in GCC is progressing nicely: https://thephilbert.io/2021/05/03/gcc-rust-monthly-report-5-april-2021/
If you know #C, consider helping out.
If you post "You can't eat a soup with a fork" in a #programming forum:
> Of course you can! Easy. Just freeze it. If you don't know basics of refrigeration, nobody can help you.
> JUST STOP ADDING WATER TO EVERYTHING. Sheesh! Forks work PERFECTLY with WATERLESS soups!
> Soups don't exist. It's an imaginary problem made-up by spoon fanboys.
A million compilations done so far.
`rg '#\[stable'` of rustc source code finds all feature flags names ever used, with Rust versions when they became stable, which helped identify exact MSRV with fewer compile failures.
I've also used -Z no-index-update option to reduce network usage (enabled on stable with the forbidden env var that shall not be named).
I'm trying to compile every version of every #Rust crate with every rustc version. Just a few million compilations to do.

I really strongly recommend investing in a microphone. You'll automatically sound more professional than everyone else with their tinny laptop mic.
Good lighting helps more than a better webcam. You don't need professional studio lights or overpriced ring lights. Just 2-3 well-placed lamps (watch tutorials!) will make a huge difference.
For #remote work having a good-quality microphone and camera is equivalent of dressing nicely to work.
If you wouldn't wear torn rags to the office, you shouldn't use a webcam that makes you look like you live under a bridge.
For every App Store app that brings more than $1mil/year in revenue, #Apple's cut is enough to hire a dedicated person to spend their full time watching that one app for scammy behavior.
And yet, there are multi-million-dollar scams in the #AppStore. Evidently nobody at Apple checked the reviews or the scammy subscription offer. The richest company in the world just didn't care to do it.
Please support people arrested in Bristol #killthebill protests. They fight for us.
