Catching up on weekend reading. Man I love this build.

@dansup When you take VC, you sell the company. No ifs, no buts. We keep getting surprised as the sale usually just takes several years to complete. C’est la “exit”.

This is why VC investment is incompatible with sustainable businesses with social missions. And why I keep harping on about how we must support projects that benefit the commons from the commons (ar.al/notes/encouraging-indivi)

#OpenBSD gamers and those who want to learn a bit about what's possible in terms of #gaming on OpenBSD, mark your calendars for next Saturday at 20:00 UTC! I will stream a few games, show how to get them to run, and answer questions.

Had a horrible dream last night. Dreamt I had two kids of my own, and that I had to leave them behind because they lived with a different family in the US, and I had to go back to the UK. It was utterly heartbreaking, but I woke up, and I think that was worse because I know I won't see them again.

I’ve never been blocked so quick on here as when I mentioned to a Google fan that the Google Corporation is kinda fascist.

If you ever wondered what the "good people" in Germany were doing while their democratic republic turned into a murderous fascist dictatorship, look around.

You're doing it now.

This talk contains an interesting idea: emulating Instruction Set Architectures on function-level granularity using NX/execute-disable to trap calls crossing ISA boundaries. The application is using QEMU in UEFI on Aarch64 to run x86_64 Option ROMs. This allows 64-bit ARM code to call x86_64 code, which is emulated, that in turn can call back into Aarch64 code etc.

Hello friends!

If you and I have exchanged messages here on the Fediverse about collaborating on #Mailpile or #PageKite - please e-mail me a quick reminder.

Not only am I scatterbrained, I am finding it impossible to find old exchanges on here and I haven't yet set up my own independent archives.

My e-mails are bre(at)pagekite.net and at mailpile.is.

@stevelord It's is also self-hosted as WebM playable in a browser (also linked to from the post): media.mako.cc/hill-whither_pee

My personal goal is to never require folks to use a service like YT but to consider republishing or mirroring things there. I am OK with meeting them where they are if it doesn't mean requiring them to go somewhere they probably shouldn't be.

@stevelord You are correct that this is also evidence in favor of my thesis. 😉
