@Feuerfuchs @kaniini As an addendum, it must be noted that just like the non-standardized federation (ones which weren't approved by a known standards review committee/body), the standardized ones (such as , which is bound to follow) accept contributions to improve the standard itself, which are discussed by workgroups. @cwebber, people from / / / might also like it.

This thing is called a 5D optical data storage crystal. It's a little piece of fused quartz, etched to remarkable precision using a femtosecond ultraviolet laser.

The "5D" part of the name is just a marketing gimmick (it only has three dimensions, obviously), but it's impressive anyway. Using current technology, these little things can store 360 terabytes of data. Once written, these crystals can survive temperatures up to 1000°C, and could theoretically last for billions of years.

A brasileira Lídia Galdino, professora da UCL (University College London), criou a conexão de internet mais rápida do mundo: 178,08 terabits por segundo. A pesquisa foi realizada durante dois anos e estabeleceu o novo recorde de transmissão de internet por fibra ótica.

Such a great reply to someone suggesting that other languages has the features of Lisp these days:

"What I see is that there's no single language that has everything that makes Lisp a powerful and unique language. Some of them compile to machine code (but they're always batch-compiled). Some languages are dynamically typed (but only the statically-typed ones can compete with Lisp on speed). Some have garbage collection (but reference counting is more common). Others have functional programming (but Python still doesn't have lambdas). Others have class precedence lists (but most languages that do OOP take after Java). Others have :before and :after hooks (but only for a few specific frameworks). A few give you limited freedom to redefine certain things at runtime. Some have REPLs (but they're never as powerful as Lisp's REPL). Some allow you to redefine classes at runtime and have the changes reflected in existing objects. Some even have AST macros (but they're always either far more complicated than Lisp macros, or they're far less powerful).

There's even a mainstream language that has multimethods, but I can't remember which one.

But Lisp alone puts the best version of all of those things in one language, without the "but"s. Lisp also has a few features that haven't been seen in mainstream programming languages since the 1970s, such as resumable exception handling."

@bamfic RMS wasn't a creep as far as I know, just purposely misunderstood: (see other toot with sources)
Unless there's something else I don't know about?

There is, however, one thing to learn from writers that non-writers don’t always understand.
Most writers don’t write to express what they think.

They write to figure out what they think.

Writing is a process of discovery.

Blogging is an essential tool toward meditating over an extended period of time on a subject you consider to be important!

Uma boa noite a todos(as) que usam software livre. A quem usa linux, também.

"One of the things that annoys me about mobile apps is that people/companies unnecessarily want things to be native mobile apps when they would work perfectly fine as web apps. [...] Things like online newspapers, forums like Reddit, and so on, are perfectly fine as normal web apps, and should stop prompting me to install their native apps when they detect I am on mobile."

Quick reminder (or clarification) about the workflow on SourceHut

GitHub has trained you to open issues for *everything*, including support requests, asking questions, feature requests, bug reports, and so on.

On SourceHut, you should not do this. We have mailing lists, and your first stop should be a project-discuss or project-users mailing list. Only when you have confirmed that you have a new bug or accepted feature request should you file a ticket on the bug tracker. This prevents clogging up the bug tracker with duplicate or poorly thought-out tickets, and usually gets you better support for your problem too.

Thinking about changing the default permissions for trackers to prohibit public posting to re-enforce this.

It is for 4 years that #github refuses to add RTL support. This is while resolving the issue is very easy and could be done in 10 min if github front-end was a Free Software.

This is one of many reasons to leave this platform. Specially when there are much better and #FLOSS y solutions out in the market.

@wolf480pl well, i think that part of systemd's ideology is that you can disable any part (except systemd itself) and replace it with something else. you don't have to use any of these daemons, they're basically a set of separate, but well-integrated tools with a common user interface. i like them bc they give linux systems a much more complete, less hackish feel.

@wolf480pl there'll always be people who avoid systemd like plague, i don't think you should worry about that

you had to read *a lot* of shell scripts. one of archlinux maintainers pointed at modularity as one of the primary reasons for switching to systemd. it was too hard to figure out which parts of the old init depended on which.

i should try running some of the systemd daemons without systemd. afaiu, none depend on each other; i don't see how could e. g. resolved use systemd either.

@Valenoern @alcinnz I feel you.

So we agree on:
- We have to remove big email services
- We have to change spam filter's rules

Right? :)
