Pinned toot

I never did an , so here goes:

• I like and am the developer of @ObjFW
• I'm interested in obscure CPU architectures and *enjoy* writing assembly for them (weirdest in my collection are , and 🙂)
• I'm into obscure OSes (e.g. )
• I collect retro hardware
• I am an :xmpp: advocate (decentralized & federated like Mastodon!)
• I mostly use :apple_inc:, @openbsd :openbsd: and :netbsd: as a daily OS
• I am also a @haiku 🍃 developer

C++ std::string: does everything you don't need it to do, but does nothing you expect it to do.

Noah, or "Bash on Ubuntu on Mac OS X", is implemented as a hypervisor that traps linux system calls and translates them into Darwin's system calls

Tried powering on my newly acquired for the very first time. Magic smoke 😢

For the holidays, you could say thank you to some of the people who write free software you use, especially software that isn't hugely popular.

Those of us who write little-known software may go for months without hearing from a user, and it can be a little de-motivating.

hint: he was a developer for ALL of the BSD projects at the same time, wrote a huge chunk of the KAME IPSEC stack giving us *FREE* reliable encryption that couldn't be backdoored by NSA etc, and he single handedly implemented that and IPv6 into several OS kernels.

Hey, maybe now that microsoft is pushing chrome, things will get bad enough that electron will be dropped & developers will remember that cross-platform GUI toolkits exist that don't involve spamming HTML

Just realised: with the purging of adult content based on US moral standards, corporations controlling huge swathes of user content and the decline of the number of browser engines.

The WWW is becoming AOL.

@JPEG Tried giving Mast another go, unfortunately two bugs break it for me: It sometimes still just skips to the top of the timeline and then does not even allow you to scroll back enough. That breaks it completely if you are just a day or two behind. And posting images results in the Toot never finishing sending.
