@kaidao a scam is not completely useless. It is actively harmful. NFTs have no real use that I can think of, unless you're an unscrupulous company or person trying to exploit people with money who are easily confused. In this case, they're extremely useful.

TIL I can use intercept-build, provided with clang, to generate a compilation database, without installing more tooling, for example bear.

Saved me some headache, due to conflicting files.

Due to recently getting fed up with poorly asked and lazy technical questions, I wrote a post about asking smart questions.


This post should be more useful to others in a similar situation, than a reflection of my personal beliefs about asking good questions. Therefore please do send some feedback, what I maybe should emphasize more, add/remove, or definitely keep.

Suppose you have a technical problem with a piece of software, and you've found a possible solution to your problem.

Is there any kind of software which is too big to "try and see" if the aforementioned solution works, or where doing so would be too expensive? This would also mean you can't reduce the problem into a smaller component and try solve that.

Initially, I believe "try and see" should be possible with all good software, but let's see what you can come up with.

Hello everyone, and welcome to this week's episode of "Who Closed My WebSocket?", the award winning game show in which an exasperated web developer tries to figure out which dastardly piece of technology keeps closing his goddamn websocket.

Let's introduce today's contestants...

Yesterday a brief breath of fresh air with #FacebookDown lasting a full 6 hours. We need more clean air online.

Just now this was brought to my attention: A #GoFundMe to support the #Facebook whistleblower who decided to make her identity public.


Help end #surveillancecapitalism

Facebook is a rotten company, rotten from the top down, its founder, board and execs are sociopaths and monsters, committers of non-hyperbolic crimes against humanity. They lie, they cheat, they steal. They are some of history's greatest villains.

Because Facebook is a terrible company run by terrible people, it periodically erupts in ghastly scandal. Sometimes whistleblowers or reporters reveal historic crimes, including (but not limited to) deliberately helping to foment genocide.

So it looks like Amazon has its tentacles ready to take over Rust.


The company is slowly adding its own members to the Rust team in an attempt to leverage governance. Amazon employees are badmouthing the original Rust team, and articles are being released to manufacture consent for Rust being an Amazon project.

Capital tryna take away my gay crab language.
