So, I learned yesterday that Adélie #Linux exists, and that they fully support PowerPC and PowerPC64 systems like the old Apple Macs. I'll have to give this a try and see if it's worth running this instead of Debian bookworm/sid for PPC64. Might be a lot more stable.

Help me, I got a Frank Stallone song stuck in my head for the whole day and I believe it's far from over.

Erm, so what's going on in Rust-land right now?

"Desktop apps suck. Instead I want to have to build and maintain two completely separate codebases and then write APIs between them. The frontend should only be able to be run inside a container that Google wrote." - Web developers

It's 2021, and not only do we still have pointers, we're also selling them now.
