Informatik-Studenten an meiner Uni wollen mir erklären, dass man auf Linux ja gar nicht zocken könne und dass VSCode ausreicht und man keine Git Versionierung brauchen würde für Development und sowieso warum nutze ich Tools, die nicht von Microsoft und nicht grafisch sind, Notizen haben in OneNote in der M$ Cloud zu existieren!!!!!

Ich bin übrigens eine weibliche Informatik-Studentin, und, ja, Mansplaining existiert und ist widerlich. Falls mal jemand ein konkretes Beispiel brauchte, bittesehr🙃

One of the coolest things I've hacked together as a sort of side project the last few weeks is a property-based test for POSIX filesystems, which uses a simple in-memory model of mv, cat, etc to verify the safety of a real filesystem:

And here's an example bug it found in lazyfs--the original 1,998 ops it took to find, and the shrunk 5-op minimal reproducing case:

I stumbled across this article when reading about anime. Its not something I ever questioned, but it is interesting none the less.

Tl;dr: The question is leading. The short answer is they dont. Its a perception phenomena.

The fact that the Skyrim modding community came together overnight to provide $16k for my friend's surgery is overwhelming. My faith in humanity is restored, just a little bit.

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you

@EU_Commission you can't protect children byt SCANNING EVERY MESSAGE WITHOUT A WARRANT!

You want to protect children? Demand nations INCREASE FUNDING for child abuse investigation, instead of leaving those departments without resources to function!

@EU_Commission this project is so wrong in so many levels that I don't even know where to begin. This opens a terrible precedent, to say the least. Where do we draw the line? What are the other illegal activities that will justify undermining fundamental rights of individuals?
I am so disappointed, for me the EU Commission was a beacon of hope in these dark times. This project tells me otherwise. The scariest part: the lawmakers most certainly know this better than me #chatcontrol
