rar archives are the worst.
unrar isn't available on Guix, but I get an error while building it. I can build the library, though!
libunrar.so does not have documentation (anywhere, at all), so if I want to manually unpack a rar file using C, I'd have to read the source code to find the declaration myself.
I am, to put it lightly, not having a blast.

Let’s talk about PAKE
The first rule of PAKE is: nobody ever wants to talk about PAKE. The second rule of PAKE is that this is a shame, because PAKE — which stands for Password Authenticated Key Exchange — is actually one of the most useful technologies that (almost) never gets used. It should be deployed everywhere, and yet it isn’t.
To understand why this is such a damn shame, let’s start by describing a very real problem.
The creator of the KISS distribution wrote a whole post about keeping the website clean & small. It's beautiful and full of info everyone should know!

What I *really* want to know is whether or not people complain about beard hairs in their pastries!
Lately I see people asking for features in Mastodon to make it more like twitter.
The author of mastodon used to use twitter and left in disgust.
He deliberately wrote something that is NOT twitter. It's on purpose.
For e.g. no quoting is on purpose.
He has reasons for his design choices and they are all to promote a nice environment, without hate, insulting and bickering.

I don't like new #StarWars, but I can't tell if it's my personal opinion or because I've been radicalized by classic Star Wars fans.
I still get "Yakko's Universe" stuck in my head now & then.
I love Guix's idea of transaction management and rollback. I look forward to see how this particular Linux Distribution is going to evolve. They are off to a good start!
I'm a UNIX user from Alberta, Canada, and I'm a failing computer scientist who works in LISP and C.
Half of what you say will go over my head but I'll act like I have a solution.
