If a service dog approaches you by itself, it's trying to get you to follow it. I didn't know that until today but now I do!
Tempted to switch loyalty to Fedora from Debian on desktop.
This is the latest: the Debian I just installed with encrypted LVM does not boot, apparently because kernel's aes module cannot be found? 🤔

"We're building encrypted software to amplify the efforts of activists, journalists, & nonprofits -- anyone fighting for social change."
Feeling quite pleased with this sentence from an essay that I might finish someday:
"I learned about [circuits for adding binary numbers] from a children’s book, personally, but I may have had a strange childhood."
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Way_Things_Work was such a great book; I recommend it for curious people of all ages)
LT_PREREQ([2.4.2]) does not work with Libtool 2.4.2, although Libtool 2.4.2 manual says that it will.

There will be a whole busload of grad school professors and grad school friends and grad school acquaintances at ICFP, since it is in the midwest this year. They know that I am a fake! 😰

Criticism is welcome, but remember to give constructive criticism, which includes consideration of how your criticism will affect the other person emotionally. The golden rule applies: how would you feel if you read the message was directed at you? It's hard for someone to constructively make use of criticism if receiving it is an emotional drain.

Bought a Strange Loop Conference ticket!

Anybody recommends a small (in terms of compiled size) C library for reading GIF images, suitable for use on microcontrollers?
I would like to read up on using Docker but I'd also like to not be bored or angry. Is there any solution to my conundrum?
Bonus points if it's by someone who's also written about other open source cloud stuff, because yikes is so much documentation a mix of dull and pandering.
@baldur Notably, a lot of the best FOSS software was written when it was paid for: GNU's glory days, laying the infrastructure for a huge amount of tooling that people use, used to be funded by the FSF directly.
IMO one of the biggest mistakes the FSF has made was to stop funding the development of new and interesting software through GNU. I'd like to see a return to that. I'm not really the right person to organize it, I guess.
Holy shit! Mes now compiles tinycc which compiles gcc!
The fully reproducible system is nearly upon us!
