Let's talk about a little relic that's hiding in your PC since ~1870.

The 'Bell' (BEL) character is a special character that makes your computer beep.

In DOS/Windows (yes even 10) you can type it using CTRL-G. Try it in your command prompt: echo ^G

On Linux/Mac it'll be: echo -e "\a"

The Bell command used to be used by teletype operators to get the attention of remote operators by making their unit ring an actual bell. This special character remains with us to this very day!

I feel like I've asked this before, but seriously how are open source projects supposed to document stuff for MacOS? I can't legally emulate it, and I don't want to own one for several reasons. At least with Windows, I can emulate it in a pinch and there are dev images I can use for $0.

This is a huge problem. Proprietary UNIX may be UNIX, but it isn't open or open source "friendly", I don't care what the marketing dept says.

From @Slashdot :

"Backdoor code found in 11 Ruby libraries"

More details here:

zdnet.com/article/backdoor-cod

Sounds like a pretty bad breach:

"All the libraries [...] were created by taking another fully functional library, adding the malicious code, and then re-uploading it on RubyGems under a new name.

The individual behind this scheme was active for more than a month, and their actions were not detected."

- Any sufficiently advanced code is indistinguishable from lisp.
- If code doesn't look like lisp, it is not sufficiently advanced.
