Hello, world!
Making a new account here since my last mastodon instance kind of died.

Minor programming language nerd, in particular and these days.

Also interested in , and .

I've written a lot of lately:

It's really good. It feels like a language with all the best ideas of modern C++, but where the language features were designed instead of discovered. Writing Rust feels a lot like writing best-practice C++, in a language designed from the ground up to look like best-practice C++.

I sincerely hope they'll make it an international standard eventually though, once it slows down and is ready to ossify a bit.

Find out how you can leverage command history into more efficient system administration. Maybe 'history' could be one of the more underrated commands.🤔

So, I read this article about #LBRY on the #ItsFOSS website, and I am quite confused :

If this is a decentralized, open source, blockchain-based, cool new alternative to centralized YouTube and Amazon, why does it want you so bad to *register an account*, *verify it*, and *download the official apps* ?

This makes me feel a bit unconfortable. I guess I'll just see whether the project's trustworthy.
