Collateral damage: Went to check out Andres Fertigs new book leanpub.com/programming-with-c
and ended up also buying Jason Turners best practices book leanpub.com/cppbestpractices while I was at it.
All in all a bit spontaneous

/e/OS = #privacy by design, which makes it an exception on the mobile market.

That is what academic research found, comparing data sent by Samsung, Xiaomi, Huawei, Realme, LineageOS and /e/OS smartphones.

I'm especially looking forward to cppcon2021.sched.com/event/nvC, but the entire embedded track looks really cool and of course the conference in general.
cppcon2021.sched.com

Turns out is at the end of October, not September. Now I just have to wait all that time for all that content *sigh*

@kde I appreciate the flexibility you give me to set up my devices the way I want rather than dictating how I should use them.

I'm surprised at the near radio silence from this year, earlier they had their first video available the same day it was recorded.
The event ended yesterday and there has been nothing. Not even on birdsite. I'm really looking forward to talks recorded in front of a live conference audience again.

I did not expect the fediverse to be so unconcerned with privacy. This is one of the killer features of federated services IMO.

Evening! 👋

I just found out the day before that #piped uses Cloudflare! 🤭 Lots of people here seem to have a acute loathing for Cloudflare, coz it apparently is not privacy-friendly!

So I originally made this account on this server because of the technical aspect and because I value my privacy (you'd have to dig to figure out my gender an where I live)
Now i also want to start tooting about technical stuff I do IRL however that would probably expose personal information.
Should I create a new profile that exposes me and keep it for that or should I just start using this one that already has followers?
Of course I could also just make a new account that is all in tinfoil hat.

For all you #cpp developers that use #firefox:

create a bookmark with
- URL: en.cppreference.com/mwiki/inde
- Keyword: std

Then seaching for "std whatever" (e.g. std vector) will take you to the right page on cppreference.

(If you you chrome/chromium, go to Search engine > Manage search engines > Other serach engines, then add one with the above parameters)

As a bonus:
- URL: man.archlinux.org/man/%s
- Keyword: man

Paw Patrol, the movie was the best movie I've seen in the cinema for about two years.
It really was better than it had any right to be. The term "Iron man for 3 year olds" was used.
Also finally a good explanation for how Paw Patrol can afford their gear 😁

The US losing face in #Afghanistan, at the price of so many deaths, puting millions at risk, is no suprise for anyone who followed the releases of WikiLeaks along the years.

Nor are the insane profits made from it by Raytheon, Lockheed-Martin, Northrop-Grumann, KBR, etc.

None of the people responsible for the war in Afghanistan or the war criminals ever got sued.

Yet, #Assange the journalist who helped expose endless wars is rotting in jail, tortured by the Empire...
