@allinone0 Did you hear about the guy who got cooled down to absolute zero?

He's 0K now.

Of course, ten minutes after the stream, I get it working. I wasn't setting the scale of the pattern correctly, which made the sprite not show up *and* made cairo_fill really slow.

...And gonna have to reschedule it again, because I will be watching @ebassi 's GObject stream at that time :) Tuesday 6pm UTC. Hopefully last reschedule.

Gonna need to reschedule the stream, unfortunately. I'll try for Monday at 6pm UTC.

Now that finals are over, it's time for another coding stream! Join me this Friday, June 3, at 6pm UTC as I add icon and texture support to libshumate's new vector tile renderer.


@cassidyjames I like causal loops, like in Harry Potter. They make absolutely no "scientific" sense but they're so much fun! And they're easy to wrap your mind around.

@sonny @zbrown In my experience the GNOME ecosystem, with its tightly integrated platform and years-long, strict API stability, has *really* spoiled me. Any time I use React or Angular or something, I'm flabbergasted that the most basic things aren't part of the framework, but there's half a dozen unofficial packages (in various states of maintenance) that do it, and more concerning, *everyone seems to think this is acceptable or even a good thing*.

@cassidyjames Ha, I just type "t"+Enter. Good thing most of the websites I visit don't start with the same letters.

@jordan In the case of Ethereum, the code that's been put on the blockchain can also be hacked.

Someone asked me this recently, so I wrote a short explainer.

If cryptocurrency is supposed to be based on "unbreakable" cryptography, what are some of the ways it's been getting hacked?


@cassidyjames I never used that tab anyway. In fact it's nearly irrelevant to me that I'm on Fosstodon, because everything is federated so seamlessly.
