i wonder if anything has been worse for the state of documentation than the ability for technical writers to just link to an hour of some guy reading slides on youtube about $thing instead of explaining $thing in writing

Uh oh. Looks like a new remotely-exploitable flaw was discovered in qmail *checks notes* 15 years ago lwn.net/Articles/820969/

Ok, these speed improvements look cool too, and experimental QUIC instead of TCP between peers will probably add another notch when it turns non-experimental.

plugging this yet again, just in case:

a while ago i started a project, libk, in hopes of offering coders a modern replacement for the insufferable C standard library. we've made a strong start but there are only a couple of us working on it so far and we have neither the time nor the energy the project deserves to dedicate to it.

so if you dislike working with libc or just want to help give people another option, you can help us out even if you're not an ancient greybeard with a total wizardly mastery of the deep dark corners of UNIX -- a lot of the hard, foundational work is basically done, and a lot of what's left is just writing fairly simple functions, many of which have already been documented; there's really a lot even a C beginner could help us with. or even if you're not a coder, you can also help with technical writing, or by contributing design ideas (which right now mostly take the form of markdown files describing how an interface should operate, but we also welcome your insights on irc).

libk is still in very early stages but it's already possible to build and link simple code against it on x86-64 Linux; getting it to work on ARM, x86-32, and the BSDs should also not be terribly difficult, tho it will require some porting effort.

if any of this sounds interesting to you, consider checking out our website at c.comint.su/libk or joining our irc channel, #libk at irc.oftc.net

Lemmy announces alpha support for federation

PixelDroid announces Alpha Release

Looking for a dedicated Pixelfed app for your Android device? PixelDroid might be what you're looking for. wedistribute.org/2020/05/pixel

deutrino boosted

🎉 The fediverse is 12 years old, so we decided to celebrate (slightly late) by doing an alpha release.

You can check it out at github.com/H-PixelDroid/PixelD, make sure to read what is broken and why, so that we keep the bug reports to things we don't know about and that are under our control.

@IzzyOnDroid has said he will host it on his F-Droid repo, and we will also start the process with the main @fdroidorg repo.

Tell us what you think!

its amazing how many chip datasheets have multiple pages meticulously explaining the concept of I2C to you, to ensure you're fully informed about the two pins you already understand, and none of the others

every day I get more fascinated by what liberals think political action is

holy fuck this is amazing

"The Wachowskis' first script was a thriller called Carnivore. It has been described as 'a Corman-style, low-budget horror movie that dealt with cannibalism or, more specifically, rich people being eaten by cannibals'. The writing was well received and the script made the duo noticed, although interest in making the movie was low as executives told them 'This is a bad idea. I can't make this. I'm rich.'"

additional commentary from Krystal leading up to this (same general topic, a day earlier)

youtu.be/YwjclneNP_I

I find this interesting & useful because it's clear there isn't and never has been a place for people like me in the Democratic Party, and getting a big fat gift-wrapped reminder of that fact & what it implies, tends to make me consider things from more of a realpolitik stance :mmh:

Nothing seems to be broken and total upgrade process took about 5 minutes from running the sysupgrade command

I only had to do some minimal maintenance afterwards
