Another "I'm bored" post.
The date is still from the first draft in April. And typos. Sheesh. Whatever, I'll fix it tomorrow.

The last post I received from Chris Webber linked to an update he wrote on HN that basically suggested MediaGoblin is a dead project. Which is a shame, because there's a need for a media server that focused on curated collections/ galleries (eg all the talk videos, photos, slides, and paper, from Conference X), rather than feeds (#PixelFed, #PeerTube etc). He also said the federation code is almost done. Is there anyone out there keen to take over as maintainer?

Linux has epoll, BSDs have kqueue, and the #Hurd has... well, neither, nor is there any replacement.
There of course are select & poll, but they work differently: with poll/select, the calls themselves block until an event occurs, whereas epoll/kqueue let you create a new fd and then wait on it. This makes them composable, so you can nest event loops, even between processes.
So for the past few days, in between finals, I've been writing a little epoll server for the Hurd; today it finally started working.

My letter to #Playstation was "Quote of the Month" in the PS Magazine, so I got a free subscription & that's just cool.

Sometimes Guix prints every bit of information except what I need to know.
"I Understand" and "Dismiss"
This isn't an "I consent/ I don't consent" deal. The site collects cookies either way. It's an "I understand / I don't understand" deal, since it makes no difference to the site owners
I don't know why, but I find it ridiculous, like having a window manager where "Quit" is a button on one side of the title bar, and "Close" is on the other
