#UNICEF wants to invest in #FreeSoftware "The Fund provides investment-style funding for early-stage, #OpenSource technology solutions that address the most pressing challenges faced by children and young people", further "UNICEF requires that all code, content or hardware developed and tested be open source and be publicly available."... Great initiative! https://www.ungm.org/Public/Notice/82482
#Rust 1.32 release highlights:
• awesome new dbg!() macro for debug-printing
• native (i.e glibc/libsystem_malloc) allocator instead of jemalloc by default (cuts down on binary sizes!)
• you can now use Self in more places
• more fn's became const fn's
• a new family of methods for converting between integers and their byte representations
• new things in macro_rules
• uniform paths: use statements now support the kind of item paths used elsewhere
I'm going to work full-time on free software - https://redd.it/agaikq
I added flame chart profiler output option to Clang, so I could see where exactly time goes while it's compiling. Already found some good stuff! Here's a blog post with info http://aras-p.info/blog/2019/01/16/time-trace-timeline-flame-chart-profiler-for-Clang/
Openbsd has a new great looking font. And it is default now. https://www.cambus.net/spleen-monospaced-bitmap-fonts/

I'm kind of nervous about this but I think it's finally ready.
What I've been working on over the past few months is, in part, my website. I've added a few pages, changed some things around, and done a lot of CSS work. It's a lot cleaner than it used to be.
In addition to that (and this was the real time-sink), I'm now #selfhosting 9 different #libre applications available for anyone to use completely free of charge. #NixNet is now a Libre Hosting provider!
If you like Firefox Containers then you might want to check out this fork. It's very nice.
"Fork of Multi-Account Containers that adds transition rules, which let you choose the container to open a page based on the opening container. It also adds other improvements to reduce papercuts and unwanted prompts."
It's ridiculous that we are in 2018 and all manuals/resources on how to boot up linux isos involve completly formatting the usb drives and support for bios shit. We should be able to just drop isos into a folder and put a default efi boot into EFI folder and that's it. For fucks sake. Custom scripts everywhere and grub stuff all around grrr..

Do you publish several posts a day on Write.as, especially on a free account or without an account at all? I'd love to hear what you think of some potential upcoming changes.
Ai/ml/magic idea: some shit that identifies, reads and produces dialog sounds for manga/comics. Would need to be able to identify characters across multiple scenes and angles to reliably give a unique voice per character but then you could just listen to comics as if someone were reading it for you.
That's all for today folks.
Tvtropes uses the familiar quantcast popup but this time there's no reject button. Just a #DarkUX pattern link labeled "show purposes".
It could well have said "mumbly nonsense"
