remember when the internet was fun and full of possibilities? yknow how now it's a miserable hell? reminder that what happened is that capitalism colonized it and now it's just as shitty as everything else capitalism's got its hooks in
like. seo, algorithms, targeted advertising: these are all DESIGNED to keep you from finding some weirdo's X-Files fan page or geocities star trek web ring. I would 1000x rather find those than tweets from the u.s. president, yet here we are #thankscapitalism
The amount of effort Rust programmers have put into reimplementing every thing is nothing short of astonishing. Some call it progress. I personally call it reinventing the wheel.
Oh look, Theo de Raadt seems to confirm my feeling regarding Intel Hyperthreading that I tooted about yesterday:
hannover here i come!
wow i'm getting an oportunity :D
Thank you #OpenBSD for disabling HyperThreading on Intel. I could not agree more.
HyperThreading was a mis-guided attempt at improving performance of Java threads by copying the SPARC processors without having the SPARC architecture… as usual with these marketing-driven issues it is coming back to bite Intel (and us…).
I never, literally never, ran a piece of code benefitting from HyperThreading nor ever heard anyone brag about it.
In case you are wondering why we'd disable #HyperThreading on a server, check out the #OpenBSD commit message https://email@example.com/msg99141.html

I'm Speculating(tm), but expect further news about problems in those areas...
its like they said in one of my podcasts.
"Java is just the best assambler for the jvm".
Thats exactly how it feels.
Qutebrowser is great, I thought it'd give me a bit of grounding to using Vim... and I actually had to use Vim today and had a grasp of how it works! Such a simple concept of switching between modes, but unless you 'get it' you're screwed.
Also, search and replace is AMAZING 😁
