A very special season finale of the Jeff Reads His Book #podcast is out now! I provide my guest with some disappointing answers concerning plot points in Bringing Balance, and we both run out of beer during trivia!
Relieved to see that the VAXstation survived the trip to #BSDCan
My #VAX 4000 system is clocking in literally 800 times slower than a Core 2 Duo laptop for sysbench's CPU benchmark. Ouch...
You can't even install setuptools in #Python without support for IEEE-754 floating point... WTF?
The Python core devs, however, won't fix a bug that would make this simple and easy. The unwillingness of the #Python core dev community to support platforms outside Win/Mac/Linux (or non-gcc/clang/vcc compilers) is one reason I want nothing to do with core Python contributions any longer.
You know who did fix this upstream? Perl devs... Perl works like a dream on a VAX.
For the time being, I've moved my blog hosting off the Rainbow 100 and onto my VAX 4000 for funsies.
Now that's some computing power! Only two days to bootstrap pkgsrc! #netbsd
So many lights! #netbsd
