"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.

On surveillance 

I find it interesting that some people are more concerned about retail stores knowing they're nearby than about their cellphone carrier knowing their location 24x7 and being able to sell it or hand it over to the government at will with no recourse.

I guess as long as it's invisible to them it's fine?

Microsoft steals name of Linux Desktop project (MauiKit and the Maui distribution) for their project that does the same thing and then blames Linux community for using that name to begin with (which is obvious trademark infringement as they've both had those names for years now). Abusing power over GitHub to then delete any issues on their project related to the name collision and deny they are at fault for ignoring the first search result that comes up for the name Maui.

You can tell they are trying to embrace, extend, and extinguish. But with blunders like this and the way their megacorp stooge bosses like to handle it they won't be extending anything.

Really impressed and curious about what #Nix hackers achieved:

I know there’s github.com/ryantm/nixpkgs-upda to automate updates, but still: do these updates introduce breakage? Do users get substitutes if they follow the tip of Nixpkgs stable/unstable?

"I prefer my dependencies to only have catastrophic failures, so they are forced to fix them"

google issue impacting me, dig and find this competition to post "sev1 - prod" as many times as possible (:P), boo at G but also yay didn't only break my low-prio use case so maybe will get attention/pressure to be fixed? :D
