Never have I been more gleeful, reading the lawsuit against Google. I'm 7 pages in, and they're already capturing so many things wrong with Google. I love it, I really love it.

Official gov site outlining it: justice.gov/opa/pr/justice-dep

The actual 64 page claim: justice.gov/opa/press-release/

Excuse my language, but do you see this bullshit? Aaron Swartz was a hero and now they're pretending like he doesn't exist. Reddit, I thought you were dead to me before, but now I can truly see how disgusting you are.

Hello, I'm Phate6660. I also go by valley, phate, and Valley6660.

I'm a Linux enthusiast who programs for fun, and I'm also a privacy activist (to a fault really).

I also watch quite a lot of anime.

You can find me here (obviously), Github/Codeberg/sourcehut, Discord, Lobste.rs, and the ZDoom forums.

Ok, wow! After seeing this (github.com/xmake-io/xmake/wiki) I was very tempted to try out . So to do so, I replaced meson with xmake in cppfetch.

And the results: I love it, I really do. It can be a tad confusing, especially because errors in xmake.lua aren't really explained the best, and rarely does it ever tell you what the actual issue is.

However, despite that; my xmake configuration is much smaller than meson's configuration, and it's so much more readable!

random fiction idea:

"tech support"/"software dev" except it's in a magical fantasy setting -- wizards trying to debug spells, really hacky magic, and so on

(inspired by something i saw a long long time ago that's I'm not bothered digging up again)

Thinking about toying around with an idea.
Would anyone be interested in a programming live stream?
It's something I've always wanted to do, but I'm also super anxious and wouldnpt even know much anyone who would watch.

Unicode 13 has a range reserved for Tengwar, Tolkien's elvish alphabet. Klingon, however, was considered "unsuitable for encoding".

So then I got the idea to read the command from a file, like how you can change settings overwriting files in /proc.

So now I made it so that you can send commands to alrm via /tmp/alrm.

Pushing my work on this soon. I'm just finalizing the README and doing a quick look over of my source.

This felt very accomplishing.

I was thinking about how I wanted to set up a REPL for alrm, to be able to control it (whether it's for checking the status or stopping it or whatever).

At first I thought I would have to use async to get the counting section of code running at the same time as the REPL.

But then I came across threading. And while that was very close to what I was looking for, it's still kind of challenging to set up like async.
