Reminds me of an audio sketch I heard once about the law in the UK:
Burglar: "Hello, 911? Yeah, so, I broke into this house, and I decided I *do* want to rape, but the lady here, she's wearing - get this - a chastity belt!"
Police: "A *chastity belt?* That's awful! You just find a place to sit tight, we'll be right there with a squad car! Oh and find something to maintain that erection! Everything's going to be okay!"
Sure, there are a few #GNU packages that aren't entirely graceful (*cough* glibc *cough*), but not /all/ GNU code is bad!
(harmful = bloated)
Also, I guess #Vim 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" ...)
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.
Right? I thought maybe it was just LibreJS acting up but it turns out no scripts are being blocked at all!
Then I thought "Oh maybe it's an 'email me and we'll strike a deal' sort of thing" ... But there isn't any contact info either!
Something tells me either this site is really new or I'll have to have a chat with the redditor who came up with the plan 😅
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)
I never really thought about it. I haven't read the algorithm they wrote for this job, but I can assume a lot of it is simply "If JS code embedded in a website tries to make a request to any external domain, block it" or something or other (I have no idea how JS works, I just appreciate LibreJS and what it does, although i'm not too sure on the "how")
I write code in Lisp, I live in Canada.
Currently very interested in GNU Hurd
