点击分享按钮,屏幕上跳出一个二维码,使人困惑。本来一个单纯的网络行为凭啥要加入物理步骤(举起手机)才可以完成?即使是接收方单纯地从相册里选取图片识别二维码,这个过程里二维码的便利性到底体现在哪儿了?我传输图片浪费了带宽、接收方浪费了储存空间,真是一点字节美德都没有。把 URL 的使用环境还给我们!

Bringing GNU Emacs to Native Code; Corallo; Nassi; Manca.

Libgccjit based compiler for Elisp.

> Though still a work in progress, our implementation is able to bootstrap a functional Emacs and compile all lexically scoped Elisp files, including the whole GNU Emacs Lisp Package Archive (ELPA). Native-compiled Elisp shows an increase of performance ranging from 2.3x up to 42x with respect to the equivalent byte-code, measured over a set of small benchmarks.

Wombat is a lovely theme from ' defaults, but I don't like its colours for headlines. Here is a nicer scheme:

(let ((colours ["yellow green" "khaki" "dark sea green" "light sea green" "steel blue" "slate blue" "orchid" "hotpink"]))
(dotimes (i 7)
(let ((face (intern (format "org-level-%d" (1+ i)))))
(set-face-attribute face nil :foreground (aref colours i)))))

1995: Computers are "anything machines". You can create music, write programs, do word processing, and network with anyone all over the world. And you can do them all simultaneously.

2019: In order to even think about using our web page you'll want to download the app onto your phone so we can track the living shit out of you and make sure you keep your full attention on US.
