#TIL that #Trump apparently has multiple nominations for the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize and is one of the candidates being voted on... well this should be interesting.

@BestGirlGrace @myconidiosyncrasy now I kind of want to write a story about a baby villain (not literally human infants) who gets a baby hero in their lab and monologues and honestly expects baby hero to, like, escape, but the hero just breaks down and sobs helplessly and kind of gives up? and is about to actually be killed by the villain's machine or whatever and the villain is like ".... no dammit, okay, fine, look, here, oops I accidentally hit the button that releases your restraints, and you can... okay look there's the escape tunnel, can you... just... look, and here's the wheel that you turn to blow up the... fine, just run, I'll take care of it myself, okay?"

okay now I think I kind of have to write this. XD

@BestGirlGrace yeah i mean i think what rubber ducking as a concept really needs in order to evolve is a duck that actually challenges you?? a duck that can escape. a duck that can say "lmao you just forgot a semicolon fucking noob"

Read in Firefox's reader view if contrast bothers you.

"While its primary purpose is to serve as The One True Debugger, printf also happens to be Turing complete. [...]

We abuse this fact to implement the logic of tic-tac-toe entirely within this one printf call."

Fascinating stuff.

Found a handy utility "Quicksearch" to search for libraries across Quicklisp, Github and Cliki (Bitbucket support is broken for now) .

Just (ql:quickload 'quicksearch) and then for example search for "AVL" with (qs:? "AVL" :du). By default it just prints project name. :du works just like -du on CLI, It enables printing short-description and URL with the project name.

Watch and cry... then roll up you sleeves and help turn this around! A must-see for any would-be Humane Tech Activist.

Ben Eater is at it again, showing how to create a VGA card on a breadboard and making it display an image. Excellent content as usual.

Oh look; BBC Radio is releasing the original Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy radio series in podcast form: anchor.fm/s/41d505d4/podcast/r

AFAIK, individual seasons have intermittently been up for playback, off and on, as embedded web content, but this RSS release is new.

I pour one out to all my CentOS admins... 

The extra work in converting to another Linux or BSD is a very Grinchy gift from RedHat.
