I'm Vito, I helped run DEF CON CTF from 2013-2017 as part of Legitimate Business Syndicate.

I like computer festivals, coffee, basic electronics, and CTF games of course.

@blainsmith Sure Matrix is an alternative, but it doesn't have the recognition IRC does. Most know of IRC and most don't know of Matrix.

@dave @njoseph_1 I use it daily too. We even run it on small SoC wearables that do ergonomics detection. It's been very productive for our engineering team. I've been at Go for 2 years.

@ytg I promise never to name variables like that outside of a toot. 😉

package main

import (
"compress/gzip"
"flag"
"io"
"os"
)

func main() {
i := flag.String("i", "", "in")
o := flag.String("o", "o.gz", "out")
flag.Parse()
zf, _ := os.Create(*o)
zw := gzip.NewWriter(zf)
f, _ := os.Open(*i)
io.Copy(zw, f)
}

I find it funny that people try to get me to do a thing by making it a competition to win something. It never works. It's never motivating. I'm not competitive with others.

I just found out that Lara Croft from Tomb Raider (2018) and Ava from Ex Machina (2014) is the same actress, Alicia Vikander. 🤯

@skunkreturns Losing interest in coding for the sake of coding trivial problems I guess.

GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program and GNU stands for GNU’s Not UNIX and UNIX stands for Uniplexed Information and Computing Service so the full proper name for GIMP is actually:

GNU’s Not Uniplexed Information and Computing Service Image Manipulation Program
