"allvm-meta" is now public, containing little meta but two items that are worth sharing couldn't be more different:

* The ALLVM Logo source files and renderings
* Most (?) of the bsd kernel module I wrote for close-to-bare hosting of enough of an LLVM JIT to codegen the bitcode for FreeBSD kernel. From 2013! \o/
The latter isn't documented and is missing some minor bits (patches for uclibc, LLVM, etc.) that once I get a spare weekend I'll search old backups for.

Do you remember when you joined Twitter? I sure don't but apparently I'm a teenager now.

Hype hype, I was excited about this back when it was DIVA! Even had a nix expression for the prototype in my NUR repo at the time:

Hi X

How's the burnout going? I hope less burny? Unfortunately, I also have burnout so can't do the thing I said I'd do. I realise this will make your burnout worse and I'm sorry about that.

Hoping for less burnout for you soon!

Given recent events, it's probably time to link my mastodon account: . Please follow there if you'd like, especially if we're friends here!

Q9 of Freddie Mac's page on Taxpayer First Act[1] says the language is optional and this is just suggested, but I ... really don't think most lenders/banks are going to want to use their own.
Especially if they want to sell the loan, which of course is what they want to do.

IANAL and if this isn't as bad as it seems, please tell me?

More I look at this the grumpier I get:
1) Who they're shared with is not limited AFAICT, as long as purpose is one of the enumerated, including "marketing"
2) This right is extended to "potential" buyers (who can apparently share similarly, even without buying?)

Ummm... :(. This is between folks and their mortgage, sign it or guess no house for you? Sigh.

Taxpayer First Act: tax returns need express consent for use and no sharing without consent 🎉

IRS: We don't want to provide language for this consent 🤔

Mortgage industry: let's standardize on language carving out /sharing/ them for *marketing* purposes (?!) 😿 😡

FYI for newbies 

Twitter has algorithms to get you engaged. Mastodon does not. So in order to enjoy Mastodon you have to take some time to reach out and find content and follow folks that you enjoy. Don't expect Mastodon to send you random popular posts to keep you engaged, you have to curate your own feed. But this is good! It gives you control.


I kinda just assumed it was truth dot social tbh, like many mastodon instances.

When asked If nix/nixOS didn’t exist, what would you use instead, we had several responses of people saying they would instead retire, find a new job like woodworking, or simply run away to live in the woods.

(Nix Community Survey 2022 - Update)

I feel like you’d get these responses in any tech community, tbh

Guys! What's the song that goes like "rapid syllable rapid syllable rap rap rap rap rapid syllable" (as some filler) or so? It exists I swear but searching isn't turning anything up. Maybe late 90's but don't know, pretty sure it was on the radio around then?
