I half-remember installing and/or using WinSock, which makes me feel somewhat old. #tcpip
"Embedded rules of thumb"
Lots of good tips here.
My first instinct when I see protests over another man felled by police or their deputized partners is that black people should retreat and do our own thing but then I remember the MOVE siege https://youtu.be/qNVhow85mQs

Nothing puts "generic" code to the test like actually trying to add new use cases. Need to add support for a new class of hardware to my firmware upgrade engine, and it looks like it'll take a fair bit of work. #programming

# The lines below are a horrible hack that nonetheless works. On a
# "make" utility compatible with Single Unix v4 (this includes GNU and
# BSD make), the '\' at the end of a command line counts as an escape
# for the newline character, so the next line is still a comment.
# However, Microsoft's nmake.exe (that comes with Visual Studio) does
# not interpret the final '\' that way in a comment. The end result is
# that when using nmake.exe, this will include "mk/Win.mk", whereas
# GNU/BSD make will include "mk/Unix.mk".
