Also, if you are even a bit interested in devops or security, I am hiring support engineers again and also looking for a kickass technical writer to overhaul our troubled docs (job listing for that one will go up next week) -

@yomimono @neal elementary is really nice on older machines, it scales down quite well. There's a nice active StackExchange for support too.

Up late working on a complete FOSS and web-based teaching environment for RISC-V assembly called RAWRS. It uses a WebAssembly build of GNU binutils and TinyEMU which has a tty and VGA device lol. I wrote the kernel in RISCV as well which the students can inspect. Should be good.

@xor @divergentdave awesome, that sounds like the right thing to do.

You might consider:

while not solved and (not loopcount or attempts <= loopcount)

(for readability & to avoid a long line)

@xor for context- are you storing them in code as shown, or are you keeping them in a database or some other kind of data source? Are you going to write all such conditions yourself or is the point to allow other people to write them? It's definitely smelly but I want to know what direction to nudge you in.

🧿 here is an amulet to protect you from drive-by "this could be better" comments on all your open source projects

Shout out to Mastodon, which is now so stable that all the new releases are really boring.

Here's already a first blog post detailing how to set up the Talk high performance back-end we released as #opensource yesterday!

Tomorrow, we'll be talking with Coraline Ehmke in #conservancy about her #CopyleftConf talk, "The Rising Ethical Storm in Open Source" Video here,

@lfajardo the elementary desktop has a few really neat onramps to help users understand the OS and the apps on a deeper level. For example, each app in the AppCenter has a homepage link where users can find source code. Then we include the Code app and build toolchain by default so people can dive in, and there's a thorough guide to getting started:

Zoom meetings aren’t actually end-to-end encrypted, despite misleading marketing on their website, in their security white paper, and in the user interface in their app. Also my first byline with @micahflee (!!!!!)

@charlag here's how it showed the info from your toot on my interface at - I wonder if this instance is configured differently, or maybe I have a setting somewhere?

@charlag that makes sense but it doesn't seem like the web app does?

I hadn't heard of Pinafore but I'll take a look!

After I joined Mastodon I used for about a year and liked it a lot. Now that the mainline web client has improved so much I've just been using that.

We'll once again be meeting up in IRC this week for FOSS companionship, see you in two hours! #conservancy on freenode.
