Yeah I've used MiniDiscs for most of my music listening for… four years at this point. And I use a Palm m500 alongside of/instead of a smartphone regularly. Plus the GBA is one of my favorite portable consoles.

Oh, I was born in the 21st Century, why do you ask?

Finally got around to commissioning a ref sheet for myself! Look at that handsome fella!

I just now realized that libtls has no way to tell if incoming data is available without consuming part of said data, that's awful

Puzzle games are really the only type of game I play regularly (other than Dwarf Fortress I suppose), but god they're probably really bad for me. If I'm already tired then it's just brutal (but enjoyable) for me to spend hours pouring over some Zachtronics programming/algorithm game or a difficult Talos Principle puzzle

"Software should embrace the model if early access games, first rushing to release a minimum viable product, then polishing and improving it over time."

No wonder all software made in the last decade feels half broken.

@be As expected of a Rust-related thing, this is an horrible take.

The problem about pyca/cryptography was effectively massively breaking dependencies and expectations with *no* communication with distros or downstream libraries/applications. Any serious project would have got feedback on it being an horrible idea and would have made a separated branch.

For Context:
- Alpine side of things: Rust didn't support musl (might still not, yes the libc is awfully relevant for Rust) and python had broken binary wheels, nothing really new on that one. Enjoy heaps of broken containers.
- Gentoo side of things: Very nearly broke portage (gentoo's default package manager) from under us on a bunch of setups and as seen with Alpine, not just niche architectures.
- Rust is a language that works on the developers machines + CI and tends to horribly break elsewhere, not surprising that most of the post also follows that mindset.

Move fast, break things. (Rust isn't alone there at all, but it's blatant)

I just wanna see my favorite John Carpenter movies in the theater :(

Show thread

And they played Big Trouble in Little China (1986) for a single showing in early July and that was entirely booked over a month in advance

Show thread

My theater's playing They Live (1988) in like three weeks and the first showing is already almost entirely booked, and the second showing is almost ¾ booked, holy crap

Saw The Thing (1982) in an actual movie theater today! Shockingly, this was the first time I've ever seen it, thought it was amazing. The practical effects in it were some of the best I've ever personally seen, really the thing that stood out to me the most.

Imagine throwing all the hardware money can buy at a problem and incremental builds still take a few minutes

To build Android, "[a]s of June 2021, Google is using 72-core machines with 64 GB of RAM internally, which take about 40 minutes for a full build (and just a few minutes for incremental builds, depending on exactly which files were modified). By contrast, a 6-core machine with a similar amount of RAM takes 3 hours."
