Pinned toot

Simply by chance I found this place.

My entire life I have had a memory from this place, standing by these trees, but I always thought "It must be from a dream, or even a vision of an afterlife, but this cannot be a place on Earth"

I asked my dad & he assured me he took me here when I was 4. You have no idea how much this means to me - I've been searching my entire life in hopes of finding this place again. It's just as calming & meditational now as it was then.

I’d just like to interject for a moment...

I would code in unsafe Rust, rather than safe C++. 😛

Sure, there are a few packages that aren't entirely graceful (*cough* glibc *cough*), but not /all/ GNU code is bad!

I'm just saying this because the list at harmful.cat-v.org/software/ refers to GNU as "harmful software" (yes, *Nano!*)

(harmful = bloated)

Also, I guess is listed as harmful as well?🤔

There comes a point when you're not hating a product because it's bad, but because you don't like the person who made it.

(Next time in "Muto gets triggered over stupid things" ...)

Oh yeah, it's (International Day Against DRM) again today.

I don't like DRM.

There - I said it. See you all next year.👍

Reading Dante's Inferno. The first bit (Limbo) is well written, but to be honest it's probably comparable to a modern fanfiction about how "I died and while I was dead David Bowie introduced me to Elvis and Steve Jobs and we became best buds and threw a party"

Guile now has a JIT compiler that is about 80% faster than 2.2's VM. I hope to take it for a spin soon and run a 2D sprite rendering benchmark.

Ha, ha! I remember talking with someone on Reddit about this, but I never knew they (or someone else) actually went and did it! Pretty hilarious, but I love it nonetheless!

(I mean, I ain't comfortable with giving my money to anyone who isn't directly related to the Hurd's development, it's the idea I like)

Ah! I can't gasp hard enough to express my surprise - Quantum has a pre-release you can download & test out!! 💖

(Now you have to specify when you ask me "Do you have ICQ?" 😉)

alpha.gnu.org/gnu/gnuzilla/60.

Re-enabled on Quantum and wow! The performance in 7.17 is amazing! And it seems that a lot more websites work with it enabled than before!

Good job, Nathan, Ruben, Nik & other contributors! 💖 👍

literally the only factually correct articles about the fediverse are written by hobbyists. It seems getting paid to write about it makes you unable to grasp what it is.

The snow is melting so that's nice - we might have an Autumn after all. 🍂

My brother is able to come home for the weekend, so I'm making pumpkin pie & we'll all watch Over the Garden Wall tomorrow (before it snows again)!

So, floor pedals might not be the best for inputting keyboard shortcuts since I'm on a standing desk, but what about this USB DDR dancing mat? 🤔

I'll use it only til' the novelty wears out!

I guess qemu-kvm isn't available on GuixSD just yet?

S... Sn... White stuff!

Nooo, Autumn isn't over yet!!

I still think about this time when I was a kid and I was like "I didn't really enjoy the Iliad that much..." and some /other/ kid tells me "well that's too bad because the Iliad is objectively an amazing book!"

And it got me thinking...

Is *The Iliad* on **anyone's** "Top 10 favourite books" list? I mean really! I'm sure people in 1194 BC found it boring, too!

Still struggling to design a program. It always ends up the same way:

[Writing simple blueprints on paper]
"This interface should be super easy to write down!"

[Sit down at computer, staring at a few lines of something that's trying to be Lisp]
"This piece of paper... Made a lot more sense a few seconds ago."

In other words, I've been having a slow day.

To all you old-timey poets out there:

"O'er" is not a real word, nor does it make the word "over" sound like a single syllable.
