The free market is the ultimate equalizer: it does not care if you grew up poor, the color of your skin, or by what name you call God.

As everyone knows there are two obvious ways to put together a simple CRUD (Create/Retrieve/Update/Delete) database app: curses based terminal TUI apps and interactive parser-based terminal apps.

What do you mean those aren't-- GUIs? Web apps? *walks away muttering and shaking head*

@profoundlynerdy considering stuff like codebase64.org/doku.php?id=bas , there's probably more code intentionally doing these kinds of hacks than code being actually buggy.

CryptPad v.3.2.0 (Chilihueque) is now available on GitHub (github.com/xwiki-labs/cryptpad)

Chilihueque lays some important groundwork that we'll use to introduce teams in our next release (in addition to some smaller bug fixes and optimizations).

My guess is the "buggy" code takes advantage of a hardware quirk. What do you 6502 old-timers think?

While researching for my own project, I came across this cool distro . It's LFS based and has its own build-from-source driven package manager written entirely in Bash. Very cool.

#OpenBSD has disabled #DoH by default in our #Firefox packages. This is active in -current, and will be in our 6.6 -release.

my 5.25" floppy drive is so much quieter in operation than any of the 3.5" drives i've ever had

the sound is less harsh, almost soothing even, in comparison

I'm sure more than one person wouldn't mind maintaining floppy disk controller patches out of spite.
