My SDF homepage is now a proxy to my SDF gopher hole!
me: I would like to use a linear positional indexed data structure as a key in a map
python: sure, use a tuple
2017 me, emerging from DeLorean, to 1995 me:
So, this new 'Pentium' chip, turns out the whole 'speculative execution' road is a bit of a mistake. Yes it makes Doom faster but 22 years later all our computer systems are hacked each week by gangs of roaming cyber-criminals wearing vintage 80s micros as cosmetic jewellery on their leather jackets
1995 me (stuck in E1M2): Got it, Doom will get faster
2017 me: Did you even hear a word I said? I said the 80s are going to be fashionable again.
Just turned the last virtual page of Savaged by Systemd, by @mwlucas . Quite possibly the silliest book I've ever read, but against my better judgement, I couldn't not like it... Maybe there actually is such a thing as "Geek literature", after all? Just bought "git commit murder", to be sure.
AIM: dead. ICQ: dead. MSN: dead. Y! chat: dead. Google XMPP/Jabber: dead. IRC survived. Remember that.
Reading Savaged by systemd by @mwlucas. Alternate title: Fifty shades of geek.

Forced giving (aka, GPL) is bad in my opinion. If they don't make the effort, we don't want to deal with them.
I've seen the stupid shit that vendors do when forced to give back. It's a nightmare and not worth it.
