"540 million #Facebook records leaked!"
And in other news, the world is *utterly shocked* to find out that the sky is blue yet again today.
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!
(No longer in GNU's list of endorsed distros because it is not maintained)
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.
Very cool, instrumental, smooth rock song, "Why be"
I cannot remember how I found the artist.
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 #Nano release, it seems like *everyone* loses it!
(4.0 is nice, by the way)
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!
