Just wrote the dirties, probably very insecure, UTF-8 compatible piece of string processing code in C I've seen.
Felt nice.
Internet got cut off suddenly, so going into radio silence until it gets back. Or I get frustrated and use my phone for tethering.

Finally decided to hang my Mozilla posters, ironic already or not (though one was ironic before it was even produced) and a big Touhou scroll.
Not sure why yet though, I look at walls rarer than I look at my screen wallpaper.

@lanodan Thunderbird is quite alright. Works great on Wayland, has plenty of features, its stable, has a nice interface. It doesn't really need to innovate to stay alive.
Servo has/had a lot of interest from VR companies, so I don't think that's quite dead yet. Maybe if no one rehires the developers. Most ex-moz people still plan to stay together if they can and they're looking at how to make it happen atm.

@dredmorbius That proves my point, and says I'm even behind with the times 🙂

"git archaeology"
Just heard this phrase and my mind got blown. Its true. Some projects are that old and migrated so well from SVN to Git that they have a clean and accurate history spanning 20 years, and I'm sure you could find some truly horrendous and/or nice stuff if you start digging deep in git blame. For swear words.
The age of digital archaeology is upon us.

After spending yesterday in a state of dizzy haze because I underslept by 4 hours and worked through on energy drinks, feels okay to finally be in a normal state again :puniko_yawn2:
If only I didn't have to spend half a day on chores today :puniko_sigh:

@wolf480pl The compiler of course.
"Just run this the compiler can optimize the hot paths better".
That's definitely the job of a developer.

Projects who strongly recommend profile guided optimizations have lazy developers who don't know how to optimize properly.

@emersion Sssh, pipewire is flawless and is bound to be better than anything old. And anything new for that matter too, because it is developed by the bright minds at gnome and redhat.

Doom 2 level designers:
"You know what's funny?"
"We already have a few of them on this map."
"I mean in front of the level exit button."
"We _already_ have a pinky in front of the level exit button!"
"I mean on all levels!"
"...ship it."

@wolf480pl In my experience, you can. You just can't trust it'll get to you and the driver won't feel hungry.

3/3 companies I've done business with in the past week, a pizza company, a vps hosting company and an email hosting company, have failed me.
I feel like I've spend all of my luck this and last year on that Civ5 game I played long ago and won.

Some time ago I posted a picture showing how the DSD release of some Hibike OST was really just 48Khz PCM converted to DSD.
After I found out about the abitscope filter I took a look at the bit distribution after requantizing to PCM. Top->bottom is MSB->LSB respectively.
Yup, that does look like 24-bit audio, with the bottom 8 or so bits fluctuating due to roundings during the PCM->DSD->PCM requantizations.
Just get the PCM/CD next time, DSD is too cumbersome to work with anyway so all work is done in PCM anyway.

For a small and new instance without elasticsearch the whole process takes maybe 15 minutes in total. With so little time you should reduce your DNS TTL if you can way down.

Was so tired I slept for 4 hours after my normal wakeup time, even though I went to bed at a normal time 😴

cursed fantasy CPU 

@piggo No x86-style addressing? Nothing on SIMD? A nanosecond precision frequency-independent timestamp?
Well, at least its a concept. The RISC-V workgroup have been at it for so many years now yet there's nothing stable apart from the basics.
