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:

See also this discussion/rant (with @mulander @cynicalsecurity @csirac2) about Hyperthreading from January:

Yesterday at work some of the visitors played various versions of Bella cìao while playing table tennis. The revolution is coming.

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.

What's a good program for translating between different languages?

I'm trying to move away from google translate and compute locally instead.

We're back!

In case you are wondering why we'd disable #HyperThreading on a server, check out the #OpenBSD commit message mail-archive.com/source-change

I'm Speculating(tm), but expect further news about problems in those areas...

Blender moved its videos to PeerTube after YouTube shut them down (apparently for refusing monetization). Since it's federated, you can follow them from Mastodon. @blender

Ok i choose you :D. i like the interface :D it's so damn simple :D.

its like they said in one of my podcasts.

"Java is just the best assambler for the jvm".

Thats exactly how it feels.

writing is painfull :D. It is so verbose. Everytime i get a cool concept the language just keeps me away from finishing my problem in time.

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 😁

Sorry nano, this might be goodbye.
