♲ @firstname.lastname@example.org: In 2010 I left Facebook and set out to build a decentralised alternative. What I found out along the way is that it wasn't just Facebook I was replacing. What we created was a privacy-respecting overlay network on top of the internet so we could replace the entire surveillance state with a system where you controlled access to your thoughts and ideas and shared it on a single sign-in decentralised network. In fact we built that, and it works great, but most people rejected it because they don't understand what that has to do with Facebook. Everything and nothing amigo. We've been living in this privacy respecting overlay internet for nearly a decade now and refuse to go back to the old ways. We've always hoped the internet itself would catch on and evolve to meet us halfway, but it seems to be devolving, so in retrospect the architectural design (as an overlay network) turned out to be the correct one.
@MG G.Love has a great thing going tonight on Organized Chaos on anonradio.net.
We're dealing with some interesting vnode duplication in the primary filesystem array which is causing kernel panics. save cores have been taken for #netbsd developers, but it will take awhile to rectify these vnode dupes. we believe there are a lot of them. please stand by, we'll be right back. remember in an outage status can always been found at http://www.sdf.org
To all of the mothers that we know on Mastodon, Happy Mother's Day! Thank you for the love and support that you fill our lives with in the special way that only a mother can. We don't always remember to acknowledge how significant you are to us, but we appreciate the hard work you do in loving each of us into becoming the people we are!
If you are into Common Lisp at all, this is a really cool stunt using Embeddable Common Lisp (ECL) to create a C REPL.
#GospelToday (Jn 20:6-9)
When Simon Peter arrived after him, he went into the tomb and saw the burial cloths there, and the cloth that had covered his head, not with the burial cloths but rolled up in a separate place.
Then the other disciple also went in, the one who had arrived at the tomb first, and he saw and believed.
For they did not yet understand the scripture that he had to rise from the dead.
The programming world lost a very intelligent and caring contributor today who exemplified the hacker spirit. I never had the opportunity to interact with him directly, but read plenty that he wrote. By all accounts that I have ever heard, he was always willing to share his knowledge with newcomers and experienced developers alike. RIP Joe Armstrong.
