Someone carved the alphabet into a tree and let it deform for five years and made a font out of it: bjoernkarmann.dk/occlusion-gro

"Published the source code to a variant of the NVIDIA Linux kernel modules dual-licensed as MIT/GPLv2"


Not yet available it seems, but sounds like good news!


@a1ba Сторгуйся до биоинформатики :D

In case you didn't notice, will give you different questions on each play-through ;) Just press "Try again" at the end. There's enough content for three completely different runs, and the fourth one will have some repetitions mixed in.

Here’s a fun little quiz to celebrate the occasion:

Please share your results!

@celesteh Do you have a prooflink? Even their own search engine can't find any.


It's now possible to set a post's language with a drop-down: github.com/mastodon/mastodon/p No more mis-identified languages in posts!

(I assume this will be part of the 3.5.3 release.)

The supply ship entered orbit, the first in years. We converged at the spaceport and waited for the most important delivery. The shuttle ramp swung down, and a man in overalls wheeled out a carton of paper. Page after page of truly random numbers, writ small. Another identical carton stayed behind, parsecs away in our capital. A literal one-time pad.

Finally we could send encrypted messages to our loved ones again. We hugged the delivery man and thanked him for his gift: privacy.

Those of you who have come here from corporate social media (recently or in the past) and stayed, which of the following were behind your reasons to stay here?

Boosts OK!

@daubers My impression from the small crates that I've read is that the first style is the most common. Maybe if there's a lot of interdependent structs (c includes b which incudes a), then one would define all of them before providing impls.

I never actually kept track of this, so the above is just my recollections and impressions.

@administrator But my crawler looks at your robots.txt, sees that the access is forbidden, and stops at that. I guess you don't see me in the logs because the logs you're looking at don't include requests to robots.txt.

AIUI, abusers of robots.txt simply ignore it? If that's the case, then adding an exception for my user agent shouldn't be an issue: bad actors will ignore it too, while my (good) actor will proceed to fetching NodeInfo and checking your StatusNet config.

The alternative would be for my crawler to ignore robots.txt, but then it'll become one of the bad actors :) I wouldn't go this route.

@treppenverstand I feel the same way about the infrastructure I automated with Ansible. Yay automation!

@administrator gnusocial.net is missing from my crawler's list because robots.txt forbids all access, to every bot. Consider adding an exception for my crawler please :)

@zacchiro Pardon my ignorance, but I can't find any mention of what happened on May 9th, 1947, that marked the start of CS in France? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_ doesn't mention France, and fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Histoire (which I can't read because I don't speak French) doesn't mention 1947.

Congratulations to us all on reaching this jubilee though!

Morning folks.

If you're a rustacean (#rustlang user) and would love to see - like me - an official account on #fosstodon I have created a post on users.rust-lang.org/t/rustlang.

I have no idea if it get any traction 🤷‍♂️... but who knows.

@edavies Check out this reply too, turns out there is a different Dracula novel that seems to be just as awesome as Backer's original!

I'm reading the feed too, it's a fascinating use for RSS, love it.

Minoru boosted

Never read Dracula before? Would you like to read it.... over RSS? Dracula is entirely made up of letters, telegrams, newspaper articles. Each has a date, between May 3rd and November 10th, Last year, and now this year, Dracula Daily has offered people the ability to read the classic novel "in real time". It just started, so if you add draculadaily.substack.com/feed to your newsreader, you can follow along this year. #rss
