"What do we say to the God of Buffer Overflows?"

"Not today."

BTW, hoy escribo pero no leo Twitter ni Mastodon. Es la única manera de evitar los spoilers...

Mozilla pays its CEO a 7 figure salary but it's moving to Discord's Recaptcha as a security model because it can't afford to hire anyone in all of Silicon Valley who knows how to set up SASL on an IRC server, or explain how IRC works without yelling "fuck" every other sentence.

About Endgame, no spoilers.

Epicness overdose. A tribute to superhero movies. Go watch it.

A pretty conservative roadmap, if you ask me. And I'm *very* happy with it being that way.

"Rust's 2019 roadmap".

It is crazy the amount of surveillance we live in today.

Can I recommend some GBA jewels? 

@slp No special order:

- TLoZ The Minish Cap. You know, a save-princess-Zelda game, but featuring stunning pixel art.
- Final Fantasy Tactics. (Long) strategy game.
- Dragon Ball Advanced Adventure. Goku's childhood platformer.
- Golden Sun & Golden Sun Lost Ages (La edad perdida). Quite good RPG whose awesome story didn't fit in a single cardtridge.
- Pokémon FireRed/LeafGreen (Rojo Fuego/Verde Hoja). Remake of the original RPG w/ those evolving pets.

I've started with Yoshi's Island, and I'm completely amazed by the quality of the graphics and how solid the gameplay is. Probably one of the best platformers I've ever played.

This little wonder was forgotten in a drawer, and I'm using it to discover all those Gameboy Advance jewels I've missed (didn't play console videogames back in the day).

I've been trying WireGuard VPN for a while, and I have to say it's truly AMAZING. Switching between multiple WiFi networks and 4G without losing connectivity, thanks to it's mosh-like stateless UDP protocol.

The ARM panorama is as bad today as it was 5 years ago. I wanted to upgrade this RPi2, but every nice-looking option (Rock64, ODroid XU4...) has an horrible reputation of random crashes and poor support.

The only suitable option seems to be the RPi3, which is a bit underpowered.

Me, starting to watch Final Space: "Oh, look, a silly, totally non-serious animated space comedy"

Also me, after watching chapter 6: "WHYYYYY??? 😭"

This paper on a malloc() replacement that DOES COMPACTION even on C/C++ is making the rounds:

Scarily beautiful.

Those who wrote that this thing has a steep learning curve weren't joking. Three days on and I still feel like a 5 years old touching a computer for the first time.
