@veer66 There’s absolutely zero reasons and you *WILL* screw it up. ICU does way too much because internationalization is hard.
Remember a couple years ago when I was very negative on Tim Burners Lee and the W3C for allowing DRM into the spec with a non-unanimous vote? Well here is the beginning of the fallout of that decision:
@1337core Kann ich so nicht unterschreiben. Viele APs gucken dann tatsächlich dynamisch, wo am wenigsten andere SSIDs sind. Da bist du mit manuell immer schlechter dran.
@dressupgeekout Have fun bootstrapping it. It’s the usual “Download our binaries to recompile our compiler” bullshit. I don’t trust their binaries and that makes it hard to impossible to create your own trusted binaries for NetBSD *sigh*. But please do let me know about your progress!
@misty The other thing I miss: Read-only media. Now you need a trusted computer to write a USB thumb drive to install. Back in the day you could write the CD on one untrusted computer and then verify it on another untrusted computer and be reasonably safe that it’s unmodified. You can’t do that with SD, as any of them could modify it again.
Posted the same link on Twitter and now Twitter is down. 🤷♂️
I guess the domain works?
@sir @espectalll The ideal compiler would not do a syscall, but a single call to libc, though. syscalls are not stable on most OSes and the proper abstraction is libc. The idea of using syscalls directly is a Linuxism that unfortunately is widely spread in the Go community and resulted in binaries that break when you update your OS on e.g. macOS or OpenBSD. Please don’t spread the misinformation that it’s good to call syscalls directly.
@BluRaf Don’t stress yourself out too much - you’re not limiting yourself just because you figure out academia is not for you. Many people are quite successful despite or even because of dropping out. Luckily the IT industry is one that does not care about certificates too much.
@shadowfacts I wanted to support the work as well
@shadowfacts Sources are available ;). But setting it up wasn’t worth the pain to me so I just bought it and it seems to work just fine.
@remotenemesis Why limit it to OS4? You don’t like MUI?
That weird dude with the mission to make sure Objective-C works on every platform this planet invented.
