Starting to catch up on WWDC videos. The semver package management is awesome, especially with the Xcode integration. Feels a lot like cargo, more go-ish with the git repo paths. I'll be interested to see if there are any hotfix woes with not being able to create a release with a subdependency tied to a branch or commit.
On the Swift side, big fan of the dynamic subscripts and property wrappers too.
I feel the imposter syndrome pretty strongly with rustlang. There are brilliant people seemingly lurking on every forum and behind every crate. But I'm pretty sure I understand some things about tokio now so I think I'm going to hazard some short videos. Working title "Dodgy Coding", just to hedge.
This is cool - Debian is able to package rust crates in a way that the apt dependencies directly mirror the cargo dependencies: https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/RustPackaging/Policy

Alas, having SimpleHTTPServer on every mac was pretty much its killer feature
I cannot wait for this new PeerTube release with the moderation queue. Every 1-2 days there are scammers creating accounts and uploading either popular movies or spam that looks like popular movies. We need enough servers to be moderating this stuff proactively that people don't even bother scripting attacks against PeerTube.

Apart from the name this is an interesting discussion of UTF-16 https://simonsapin.github.io/wtf-8/#motivation
A solid attempt was made to fit it to our national anthem https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eobSMcB-nMA
Cargo's options for overriding dependencies via git or local path are wonderful. It makes it so much more likely that I'll tackle a bugfix for an upstream library when the barrier to building and testing is so low. #rust
Hmm the entire @SDF netbsd cluster crashed at the exact instant I pressed enter to send a message in irssi. I can't help but feel responsible.
