oh lord i slept for 12 hours and feel like i woke up in a different time

Also why are companies not vetting the FOSS they use in the first place? Security doesn't stop being your responsibility just because someone else wrote a library you use.

LRT: So why can't Google just vet the software and submit changes upstream? Ridiculous to profit a second time off of the unpaid labor of FOSS devs

Everyone: Big Tech should support #FLOSS developers, who develop tools Big Tech was built on, so that important FLOSS projects are well-maintained, quickly patched, and secure.

Google: pay us to access versions of open-source software we audited ourselves.

I miss when new Android notifications would show unobtrusively as tickers in the notification bar instead of either popping on screen and getting in the way of important stuff or just not showing up at all

At this point being called "content creator" should be treated as a slur

So Ive used various online products in the past to implement my ‘second brain’ and realised that I could never sustain it by giving part of my brain’s contents away to billionaires. Besides most of what I captured looked like garbage, and even billionaires don’t need/deserve to see that stuff. Going back to paper for that was a revelation and I realised that I wasn’t stupid, their systems were just making me feel that way.

I would not recommend using Intel CPUs for compiling Rust. The binary that comes out technically correct, but lacks the warmth and POPCNT that the AMD CPUs can generate. The binary code layering that you can achieve on a 32-core AMD 6969 Ryzen has a completely different level of opcode detail resolution, especially the branching is noticeably smooth (your average amateur might not notice subtle differences when a processor executes 4 billion instructions per second anyway, but true codeophiles will).

Important: make sure you use high-quality shielded gold-plated USB cables to connect your keyboard when typing the code -- no matter how sophisticated the CPU you use to compile, the result will be bad if the input was distorted.

I wrote a webapp in Python/Django a while back and I wish I had done it in Go now that I've spent some time learning it
