Macros can be useful but I feel like we should ban certain people from touching them.

For example, imagine if someone were to use the C preprocessor to create an elaborate object orientation system for C, calling it GObject, and then create an entire graphics stack up to and including a desktop environment, called, say, GNOME.

I think that's the kind of person who should no longer be allowed to use the C preprocessor.

NC13 shows off how End-to-End encryption will look like, I'm very excited!

Happy New Year everyone! Maybe 2018 will be a bit better!

The general consensus seems to be:

1) 20th Century Fox owns the "Alien" franchise.
2) "Alien" xenomorphs are born from a Queen.
3) Disney is buying 20th Century Fox.
Therefore
4) Xenomorphs are Disney princesses.

@forteller I can only agree, is an important tool for the FLOSS landscape and I can only hope it achieves better adoption. Setup my own account there not too long ago and I send a bit of support to some of the projects there.

This is a really important time to push free and open source alternatives to #Patreon! I've considered using @Liberapay, but was afraid I had to use Patreon to get the network effect.

Please tell people about #Liberapay, post about it on Reddit (r/patreon), vote it up on Alternativeto, etc alternativeto.net/software/lib

Please boost! This kind of opportunity to topple a near monopoly with FLOSS does not come often!
Are there other FLOSS #crowdfunding platforms?

I wrote a short blogpost about how I will design my task scheduler in my toy kernel (though I'm fighting some other things first atm)

Nice language you have there, where you only need 10 years of experience before _not_ blowing up your customers Car/Plane/Factory!

Deadline for my report is today, I should get onto that, need a couple more pages...

Know that feeling when you open a LaTeX template and the code listing are set to use Arial instead of anything sensible?
