@_xhr_ Thank you! I shall investigate that! At the moment I'm freeloading shell accounts from the tildeverse for a few things which feels wrong, but I can't continue to use DO either. So, thanks! :-)
I really hope they reconsider this in the future. I can't imagine DO "maintaining" support for FreeBSD has much overhead, so this move seems more political to me than technical.
If anyone here knows of *BSD hosting alternatives to what DO offered, please let me know.
Shame on you @digitalocean
@sir has now officially announced #harelang to the world (https://harelang.org/blog/2022-04-25-announcing-hare/).
I'm really excited to start using this! Thanks for all the hard work, Drew.
Been looking at #ziglang recently for writing a Wayland compositor. It looks like a great language. Certainly some "improvement" over C.
Definitely lacking string support and regex support though. This suggests more hoops to jump through to solve what many programmers would already consider solved problems in other languages.
I'd love to help out with zig issues if appropriate!
@encelado That's working for me on my NetBSD installation. Can you send me the configure log file (config.log), please? Feel free to email it to me if it's easier.
#gameoftrees portable update: the `linux` branch now has support for NetBSD/DragonflyBSD/MacOS. Please go forth and test/break things so I can improve this. I'm also keen to work with downstream packagers as well.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
