Happy birthday to LISP 🎉
First unveiled in the 1960 paper titled "Recursive Functions of Symbolic Expressions and Their Computation by Machine"
@thegibson Oooh alot's changed. Try OpenBSD first. It's so much easier to install than FreeBSD.
(Sorry FreeBSD, but, it's true)
How To Be An Ethical Consumer:
- Don't buy from Amazon
- Spend half an hour researching where else you can buy the thing you want
- Order it from a small business
- The small business orders it from Amazon and just has it shipped to you
- Oh no
- There's no ethical consumption in a system with these fucked up power dynamics
Oh holey moley someone kickstarted an Afropunk TTRPG and it looks so good!

Electron apps are not really apps, they are just web pages with rudimentary heavy-weight browsers included.
If you are about your users' well-being, please, don't use Electron in your project. Using more than 300 MB of RAM and slowing down the whole system just to edit a small text file or send a chat message is a sin.

I don't want self driving cars.
I want boring things like public transit that comes so regularly I don't need to check a schedule.
I want fast passenger rail so accessible and easy it's preferable to suffering airports.
I want cities that aren't built around cars-as-default.
Reminder: I'm on the lookout for a working PA-RISC machine for ports development. If you or someone you know has a machine that can run OpenBSD/hppa that is no longer wanted, please let me know.
(Feel free to boost.)
RT @firstname.lastname@example.org "Today's security fixes went out (with a proper announcement, source diffs, and binary syspatches for both supported releases across two CPU architectures) approximately 18 hours after the initial report came in."
Commentary from its'a me, @brynet
#OpenBSD's really got that errata process down pat, really awesome turnaround for getting syspatches out the door, in many ways surpassing everyone else.. really nice work from all who are involved!
Still waiting for my brain to adapt to GNU #APL.
