Woooowww - A big LLVM contributor quits [1] because LLVM are updating their CoC[2] to be good and have started welcoming Outreachy internships [3]. The contributor is leaving the LLVM community because he "cannot take is how the social injustice movement has permeated it [1]"


Finally getting rid of my weirdly configured Postfix mail server and switching to FastMail.

My self-hosted mail server worked fine, but I was just constantly worried that it'd break and that someone wouldn't get my email.

Although, that wasnt without justification - I had no reverse DNS, so sometimes people wouldn't get my mail.

And also lots of mail apps didn't like the self-signed SSL cert I had for IMAP.

TIL - has a `synchronized` statement similar to Java!

I wasnt particularly looking for it, but my The D Programming Language book fell open and I noticed it.

I really liked the idea of the synchronized statement in Java because one doesn't need to remember to unlock their Mutex, or even to explicitly lock it. Plus its nowhere near as ugly as std::lock_guard from C++.

Whenever I look at D I am just reminded of how ugly C++ is.

I bet not many undergraduate projects feature citations of a specific method in the OpenJDK source code. πŸŽ“πŸ“„ \citep( )

My favourite thing is getting packages from China with small PCBs inside so long after I ordered them that I can no longer remember what they are and why I bought them.

Ffs, more Heisenbugs to solve today.

Why did we ever think parallelism was a good thing.

I missed my opportunity to run builds on the build servers at the weekend, so now I have to wait a good 30 mins before one of my 7, 30 min builds run πŸ™„

In which, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis (1992) calls out the Twitter experience.

It seems that there is no way to get Maven to list all available JUnit tests.

I can run tests with maven, but I can't get it to tell me what's available. 😠

I really love the idea of a fully Linux powered phone, but the Librem 5 is super expensive 😭😭

@tmy Now you're delving into mastodon history.

AFAIK, early on in the history of mastodon, the furry community found it and set up camp. A bit later on, so did the LGBT+ community. It was a relatively safe place and thus they flourished.
As others joined, the social norms were already in place to ensure it stayed relatively safe, so they stayed.

After rather a long time, think years, the scaffolding and is finally gone from Coventry Cathedral's Chapel of Unity.

I am reading a paper [1] which attempts to describe an algorithm (ClockPro) entirely in English and gosh, I never thought I would be wishing to be reading maths rather than English.
