UK politics / a brief summary of COVID politics 

Old people: “Crap, we could actually die from COVID. Let’s lock down the country.”

Young people: “okay, we’ll put our entire lives on hold for over a year to save your lives.”

Olds: “Woop woop, we’re all vaccinated!”

Young: “Maybe you could keep lockdown going a little while longer so we can be vaccinated too?”

Olds: “HOW DARE YOU VIOLATE MY CIVIL LIBERTIES!”

This 1983 intro to computers book for young children has as much detail in a few colorful pages as a college hardware architecture class. archive.org/details/Usborne_Gu

Gestern beim Nachtspaziergang entdeckt. Eine tolle Idee! 🐝🐝🌻🌻#Artenvielfalt #Insektenschutz #rettetdieBienen #natur #Bienen

>Mit einem umgebauten, knallgelben Kaugummiautomaten in Dortmund startete im Herbst 2019 der erste Bienenautomat mit Samenmischungen &Krokusknollen zum Ziehen. Ziel der Aktion ist es mehr #Blütenvielfalt für heimische Bestäuber-#Insekten in unsere Orte zu bringen. Die upgecycelten Kaugummiautomaten mit Mehrweg-Kapseln findest du an über 100 Orten.<

Sieben beliebte E-Mail-Apps teilen eine große Gemeinsamkeit: Sie lesen die #EMails ihrer Nutzer*innen und teilweise sogar deren Passwörter mit. Dahinter steht ein Unternehmensgeflecht, dessen Spuren nach Russland führen. @digitalcourage mobilsicher.de/ratgeber/apps-g

@mntmn a lot of people take hardware for granted. I always appreciate hearing stories from small independent hardware companies, because I get reminded that the people who work there all have superpowers.

Thanks for sharing.

I just finished A Mind Forever Voyaging. I'd say it's one of the best "books" I've read this year, though it's a 1985 interactive fiction game from Infocom.

The game starts slowly... at one point I wondered, "is this really it?" and then the things that seemed unimportant become critical.

It's more immersive than challenging. I *strongly* recommend looking up and reading a copy of the manual before playing; the "magazine article" and some of the special commands are key to the game.

Web apps are great, I just lost a half hour of work by accidentally swiping "back" on my trackpad, awesome.

Historisches Kopfsteinpflaster, Radverkehr und Barrierefreiheit (für RollifahrerInnen oder für Kinderwägen) vertragen sich in Dänemark. Wie oft habe ich in Deutschland gehört, dass sich das ausschließen würde...

so.

i just wrote a new feature into the netbsd kernel on my local machine.

it is <300 lines of c code.

it implements instruction emulation on netbsd/i386, based on similar functionality in netbsd/sparc and netbsd/mips. specifically it implements (lock) cmpxchg8b, so that i486 systems (and cyrix 5x86/6x86) can run i586 code with atomics, without needing libatomic (which appears to not work half the time anyway), in a way that i believe is as threadsafe as possible on a single cpu system


it is currently running a conduit matrix homeserver compiled for i586 and i plan to put it through its paces

You may not like it, but this is what peak performance looks like.

Schon etwas älter, aber immer noch beeindruckend: Die NY Times zeigt, was man aus einem gigantischen Satz gesammelter Location-Daten so alles auslesen kann.

"In most cases, ascertaining a home location and an office location was enough to identify a person...“D.N.A.,” he added, “is probably the only thing that’s harder to anonymize than precise geolocation information.” "

I'm creating embedded Linux distribution from scratch that fits on a single floppy (1MB at the moment), runs latest kernel and can boot on a 486DX PC.

More info soon with an easy to understand tutorial!
