Happy birthday to LISP 🎉

First unveiled in the 1960 paper titled "Recursive Functions of Symbolic Expressions and Their Computation by Machine"


Phiew! I’m back home at last! I had a really great time at the CHICKEN meeting. I’ll talk about it in the next blog post.

@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

If you don't get that you should share, that poor people are human beings, that women are people, I don't want to know you. I simply want to stop you causing damage.

An East German built this computer using a book back in the early 80s. He had to make trips to West Berlin to buy the RAM chips using a day pass. It's a Z80 clone based around the MME U880.

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.

Hey, dear #OpenSCAD people!

I need a library to get cutouts for the #raspberrypi 3b+ model for the mounting holes and the usb/network jacks in 2D. Do you know how to do that?

I want to mount the pi on the back of a case, so I need the holes there, the usb/network jacks need holes in the side of my model.

So far I did it in 2D as it's going to be exported as svg to fit onto a laser cut box.

Do you know of any library that can do this while I don't need to worry about the alignment of the two sides? (Maybe I can project a 3d model onto the 2d sides?)

Plz boost.


Boost if you like girls
Boost if you like boys
Boost if you like non-binary people
Boost if you just love nearly everynyan besides the assholes

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 @openbsd@twitter.com "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! :flan_thumbs:
