Now that I've poked around a bit I guess I should write an #introduction
I'm a grad student interested in operating system design and computer graphics. Favorite language is C, although #rust has quickly become a close second. I also enjoy contributing to #FreeBSD, and lately I've been really enjoying the #vulkan graphics api.
I've always wanted to find an open source project to contribute to. Maybe with this downtime I'll find something... FreeBSD has been really interesting to me for the last few months. Has anyone in the @fosstodon community helped with FreeBSD recently?
It is proven! I am ivegotnorto on Keybase: https://keybase.io/ivegotnorto/sigchain#c1b628c74f3fb9748950d916edc95aa34eb00a792c557d57feeff189160c1a5c0f

Sounds impossible... But #Arm's #SWD Protocol (to flash and debug firmware) runs just fine on #RaspberryPi's #SPI port... No need to bang out bits slowly and unreliably over GPIO! It's the reason why #PineTime fans @PINE64 can debug firmware with #VSCode today. Hmmm if only somebody had discovered this much earlier... 🤔 https://email@example.com/openocd-on-raspberry-pi-better-with-swd-on-spi-7dea9caeb590?source=friends_link&sk=df399bfd913d3e262447d28aa5af6b63
Handy tip for #ArchLinux users: find out which packages use up the most disk space:
pacman -Qi | egrep '^(Name|Installed)' | cut -f2 -d':' | paste - - | column -t | sort -nrk 2 | grep MiB
What are your top 5?
