Thanks for working on this!
Or just... "Do whatever you need to do in the background and tell me when you're ready to restart"
No 30 minutes of doing stuff after reboots please.

Browser stuff Show more
As a browser perf guy, I've seen some shit:
- web pages that continually peg a CPU core at 100% even after loaded (not cryptocurrency mining, just poor code)
- a web page that allocates 1GB of memory, frees it, and then repeats ~15 times
- a web page that loads >20MB of JS and then they wonder why their site is slow
- a web page creating >30,000 DOM nodes and they wonder why it's slow
- a web page where every "component" is an iframe and they wonder why it's slow
The web is wild.
Rust 1.27 is here! SIMD, “dyn Trait” and book search, among other improvements! 🎉🎊 https://blog.rust-lang.org/2018/06/21/Rust-1.27.html source: https://twitter.com/rustlang/status/1009895173105553409
of course "memory safety" doesn't solve everything but if we can remove most of the stupidly predictable flaws let's fucking do it
and if someone wanted to bolt a magical static analysis tool that removes half the bugs to a c compiler let's fucking do it too
it's just that rust is made for that to work nicely from the start

TIL: ARMv8 has an instruction called FJCVTZS.
In order for Linux to go mainstream, we need to get into schools.
I also think Linux is the perfect match for schools. Configurable, able to run cheap hardware no problem, has a web browser, wonderful to program on, etc.

If you need a compiled compiler to compile compilers, how do you know that there's no spyware secretly propagating itself?
hex0 is "a hex assembler written in hex" -- basically several bytes of raw machine code "with a shitload of comments" which translates text to bytes
hex0 translates hex1
which translates M0
which assembles M1/hex2
which assembles M2-Planet
which assembles mes
🆕 which compiles tinycc

which compiles the OS!
Did you know? That pretty image that shows when your GNU/Linux-based system is turning on (probably Plymouth, which I'm talking about here) includes a full scripting language.
It's quite simplistic and doesn't have many libraries for understandable reasons, but it's there.
What the hell? I'm currently clicking into the exact same pixel in GIMP with a color picker and getting two different colors at different times?
