Someone I follow recently posted,

it just bricked itself for absolutely no reason, which completely kills any motivation I my have had for trying to make something new. why put work into a project if it's just going to be like "oh yeah, it might just turn into a brick for no reason; that's just a thing that happens"; fuck that

This is exactly why I'm building my own homebrew equipment from scratch, from system software on up.

My current platform is outdated, pretty much by intention. Part of this is nostalgia. But, I also cannot shake the feeling that the technologies of the past were never ... ummm ... fully utilized to their fullest potential? I'm not sure those are the right words. But, they're close.

@jeang3nie @fribbledom Rhe Plan 9 libc isn’t nearly as massive as one could productively do, but simply getting Unicode everywhere, a good buffered io library, and better networking than sockets are huge usability wins.

The Rust standard library documentation is great.

Thinking of doing a blog post on Zig's build system. Things aren't well documented (yet) but I'm finding that there isn't much of anything that I can't do with it.

I was right, apparently I did miss running OpenBSD :flan_disappointed:

I've spent the last almost four hours playing around with it. Trying out different WMs, playing with xenodm's config, finding different programs, etc.

I've landed on spectrwm with a beautiful monochrome colour scheme:

Teaching my daughter her first baby steps in Rust. So awesome being able to pass on my love of computers and programming.

climate, webdev, rant, looking for something else 

I hate my web developer job. No time for unit testing, no time for documentation, no time for creativity or nice algorithms.
Just use whatever trendy JS {front,back}end framework, ship high bandwidth, heavy, soulless sites in no time.
The mere consciousness of it from my colleagues are jokes between two crypto bs talks. The climate catastrophes ahead are literally a joke to them.
I hate that I contribute to this and I want out.

Does anyone here have experience going from this kind of job to a more engineering-focused, ethical one? Tips? Interesting reads? I'd love to hear about it!

Boosts are appreciated!

Feeling like I'm starting to get the hang of Rust.

Web: scientist trying to link two documents together

Web 2.0: greedy fuckers trying to make a billion dollars

web3: greedy fuckers trying to make a billion dollars while burning down your habitat

web0: a timeless and ongoing attempt to unfuck things and move forward in a way that enables individuals to seize the means of communication. If we succeed, no one makes a billion dollars but we protect these fragile things we call human rights and democracy.

In fact, I think libc kind of reads like the Bible. A bunch of disjointed ideas that were all we had back in the day, so they must be the word of God, right?
