I've been digging more into #rust this weekend, and I'm having these constant moments of unadulterated joy: "You mean it just WORKS?! Like that?!"

Combing a strong type system with a low-ish compiled language with great tooling, I can easily see this replacing Python for making loads of little command line utils for me.

TL:DR

Set goals that are active, time constraint and reachable and best start with "I want to"

Don't set goals that are passive, start with "I must", are unreachable or don't have any time constraint.

Question. How do you encrypt passwords in a GDPR/DSGVO compliant way, but give it in clear text to the cops when they want it? Asking for a German friend.

And how do you give the IP addresses and user names to the cops (they don't need a court order!) while being GDPR conform?

Warum wir in Deutschland nur noch niederländische Verkehrsingenieure einstellen sollten, damit uns nicht andauernd die Radfahrer platt gemacht werden:

Rechtsterrorismus, Hanau, Nachrichten, rant

Ich habe Angst. Nicht weil ein einzelner Rechtsextremist Menschen brutal ermordet hat. Sondern weil es mir Sorgen macht, wie diese Gesellschaft auf solche Anschläge reagiert. Rechter Terror ist als solcher klar zu benennen. Und mit Faschisten redet man nicht. Punkt. #Hanau

My password managers passphrase generator doesn't seem to be random. It knows exactly what I'm up to, or how comes the generated passphrase is "quit-device-frying-[...]"?

Wrote a little script to automate it. There's lot's of room for improvement, but it works for now.

I still want to try using a (or similar ) instead of the USB spi-flasher to see if it's considerably faster.

@nhr @alexbuzzbee nobody asked me but I think if the point of leaving old code is to see what it's supposed to be doing then it seems tests would answer that question.

I would delete the old code and just leave a comment with the commit where the code was most evocative if that really helps someone.

Write code to be clear and correct first. If you need to optimize, you can do that later. When you do, maybe keep the original code around in comments, so you can see what's supposed to be happening.

Congratulations! You've reached the end of the Internet. You may now shut off your computer.

Recently on Twitter, some tech people openly shared how much they make.

It's good, but only rich workers are sharing. It doesn't help to feel good nor reflect anything about life quality, happiness, perspectives…

Let's try to make it more useful.
