This is getting out of hand quickly. 😅
Reality: There are 12 cols instead of 11 and 3 pins not used by the leonardo have to be added to #microscheme's stdlib.
I'm pretty sure what needs to be done to add the missing stuff. Before I start: @technomancy do you know if this already exist or is in the works? Can you think of a reason why this won't work?
Turns out, I pressed the spacebar on my old keyboard exactly on the spot, where the #atreus has it's backspace key. 😂
Imagining the Ideal Language for Writing free Software (my talk from #fosdem 2021) just got posted: http://bofh.nikhef.nl/events/FOSDEM/2021/D.perl/programming_lang_for_free_software.webm
In that presentation, I ague that #typescript, #golang, and #rust aren't great fits for Free Software (even though they're all well-designed languages and I still <3 rust!). And I think about what we _do_ want in a language aiming at Free Software.
Slides are available on my site (but truly are a visual aid, so may not make that much sense alone) https://codesections.com/presentations/fosdem-2021/#/intro
@esden thanks for bringing the Atreus to my attention.
I can't wait to fire up The Typing of the Dead and start practicing tonight. 😄
#Restic v0.12.0 greatly improves check, index rebuild and prune times (we are talking hours down to minutes!)
This dramatically reduces maintenance windows where clean-up operations put an exclusive lock on backup repos.
I have several customers with large repositories (multi-terabyte S3 buckets) and pruning data was a huge pain point.
Oh, and it looks like the bug where fuse-mounted snapshots showed wrong directory ownerships is now fixed, we can now perform rsync restores! (I still need to test this)
"Rust: 'Move fast and break things' as a moral imperative"
Sigh. This is burning a hole in my bookshelf for years now. But with 4 young children and a job as an embedded developer, I haven't found enough time and motivation or was too tired to start learning #commonlisp in the evenings. But the itch is getting stronger again. I may have to find a way to get at least a little time for #landoflisp every week somehow soon. 😅
