⚠️ Heads-up: the #EU is considering ways to regulate software that runs on radio-enabled devices due concerns about interferences.
Some of their solutions could significantly harm #postmarketOS, but also related project such as #UBports, #LineageOS and #Replicant (among others).
The initiative is now seeking feedback, don't hesitate to send them yours! It seems that Non-eu citizens can contribute as well. There's not much time left, so act quickly!
Behold: a nearly 100% brand new C64 (mine). https://amigalove.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=967 And I've got a 2nd one to show you soon, too. Can't wait!
Comparison of various media. SmartMedia would top out at 128MB. Olympus should have just gone to SD then, but they made xD Picturecard instead.
I doubt I can find anything that will read SmartMedia on a modern (or even slightly vintage) machine now.
The modern standard SD card is a facade of mostly empty space. In ealier days, they'd have to cram 2 TSOPs plus a control circuit into this space and still have it fit.
It occurs to me that we need a standard symbol — akin to the padlock for an encrypted session — that clearly differentiates a private key from a public key on sight.
Let's not kid our selves, proper management of #publickey #cryptography infrastructure is hard. But, symbols are powerful tools and all but the dullest among us can be taught to respond in a specific way when a given symbol is encountered.
It's Pavlovian, but it will work. Use of #PKI is just going to grow.
Gov. Rick Snyder pardoned a "career drunk driver" who wanted a more prestigious job. Thousands of Michiganders are waiting for the same chance.
Broadly, the reason Earth isn't just one kind of rock is fractional melt/crystallization - every time you melt & refreeze a rock you separate some of the "high melting point" from the "low melting point" material.
Near the surface we get a lot of ores from water (surface or underground) dissolving, transporting, and precipitating minerals.
I guess win-builds,org might be the least-annoying way to get crosscompilation going for an application and supporting libraries, though I don't know the state of the project those days.
Regarding “reasonable competency”, the issue is that doing anything in C is hard; doing it correctly, a massive endeavour. (This is speaking as someone who has done formally-verified C for work; it's doable, but it's a massive amount of work)
The language is riddled with seemingly-valid programs, that might compile and run properly, but then will do arbitrarily bad stuff if you dare change compiler or turn on optimisations.
Just making sure you know what you are getting into, 'cause in 2019 there are better tools out there :3
