is awesome & I love their work, but... Can *anyone* load their website?

I think the site uses more processing power than their games!

"540 million records leaked!"

And in other news, the world is *utterly shocked* to find out that the sky is blue yet again today.

Okay, so when you're exporting a in , I finally discovered why it doesn't default to 100% (it's usually set to 90%)

90% - 150Kb
100% - 750Kb

Wow! That's a *huge* jump! There's hardly any visual loss here, too (same result with multiple files)!

Maybe you all knew that already, but it hit me like a rock, because I've been exporting all my stuff to 100% quality!

Back on the ā€œwanting to build good computersā€ thing, warming-up to the idea of starting a company if necessary to do so...

(No longer in GNU's list of endorsed distros because it is not maintained)

Some preliminary hacking on Guix is making me really wish that I did replace Gentoo with GuixSD when I had the the time to do so over spring break. Guile seems so much better suited to this sort of thing than Bash does.

Oh yeah, I change my underwear often, I am not depressed, and I am not going to get a haircut!

I generally see my microblog posts to be pretty normal, but my mother asks me about the things I say on here in a very concerned way.
Hi mom. This list is pinned for you to help get rid of some confusion

* GNU is not a drug

* I cannot download drugs

* I am not suicidal, it is just part of the joke.

* I am grammatically incorrect, not mentally ill.

* I am not part of a gang.

* The flashing button that says "Fix my computer" is NOT to be pressed.

* I may not always show it, but I love you.

Trying to understand the #Hurd boot-up process.

They have the kernel start two tasks, ext2fs.static for the root filesystem and the exec server, and connect them via ports.

ext2fs, seeing that it's the bootup FS and not a regular ext2fs server, starts /hurd/startup, which stars the auth and proc servers [so the next process to start gets a PID of 1], and then runs "runsystem", which is a shell script that starts pflocal and the default pager, and after that exec's the regular Unix /sbin/init.

Well, I guess I uploaded it today anyway. This is not an April Fool's joke, it's just another blog post. Sorry.

I don't know enough about for this to help much, but it was fun to write!

I'll probably finish writing my article on Web design tomorrow, but I think I'll upload it the day after. I don't want to give off the wrong vibe.

Whether this is an April fools thing or a script kiddie having fun, it's overly rhetorical & persuading and I learnt of a new protocol today:

Whenever there's a new Vim release, There's always a few light jabs from Emacs users (& vice-versa)

But when there's a new release, it seems like *everyone* loses it!

(4.0 is nice, by the way)

I mean, I 'm lazy & don't want to have to do C-v every time I open a file just to start reading the code (especially if it's a one-liner/one-function file!)

Also slightly more familiar with the codebase.

I'm unfamiliar, however, with convention...

Is it *required* for GNU projects to slap the GPL at the beginning of *every* file? Why can't Mediagoblin just have a LICENSE file/folder at the source's root directory?

Halfway through the ActivityPub protocol specification (still. I haven't had enough free time). I also just found out about Gargron's AP tutorial:

It looks really nice & I plan on reading it tonight if I don't fall asleep first!
