I think the level should advance in the dungeons of the Burger factory down below that cliff one usually jumps over in the beginning...


Rust + nix = easier unix systems programming

Lately I’m writing lots of Rust, and I’m particularly interested in systems programming on unix. I’ve been using and contributing to a library called nix1, whose mission is to provide ‘Rust friendly bindings to *nix APIs’. In this blog post, I hope to convince you that you might want to reach for Rust and nix the next time you need to do some unix systems programming ...

Velocipedia - Gianluca Gimini

You might have noticed there’s something wrong with this bike. Or you might have not.
This bicycle is missing a very important part of its frame and it would immediately break if it actually existed and someone tried to ride it.Let me explain everything from the beginning...

everything looks ok, by now... - - Circuit Simulator

This electronic circuit simulator is highly interactive giving the feeling of playing with real components. It's very helpful for experimentation and visualization. Best of all, thanks to the power of HTML5, no plug-ins are required!


OpenPGP Best Practices -

We have gathered here a lot of information about configuring GnuPG. There are detailed explanations for each configuration suggestion. Many of these changes require you to make changes to the GnuPG configuration file on your machine located at ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf ...

How bad is the Windows command line really?

Kevin Gallo just announced Bash support on Windows.

If you have never had to interact with the Windows Batch language, this might not seem like such a big deal. Surely Batch could not be substantially worse than Bash, right?

I mean...
The time a batch script takes to execute is at least O(n*(n-1)/2) (aka O(n^2)) in the LENGTH OF THE FILE, INCLUDING COMMENTS. The reason is that the batch engine reads the entire file, then executes a line, then reads the file again, then executes another line, and so on.

waitwhat? WHY?

Genuino Day al FaberLab di Tradate
questo sabato, il 2 Aprile, dalle ore 14:30 alle ore 20:00 si terra' un incontro speciale presso il FaberLab Tradate.
Si tratta di un incontro aperto a tutti: chiunque puo' portare un proprio progetto (anche non finito) che usi hardware libero (Genuino, Arduino, Espruino, Raspberry, ....) per poterne spiegare le potenzionalita', i problemi e le soluzioni trovate.
Cosi' come chiunque puo' venire solo per vedere e conoscere il mondo dell'hardware libero.

Dalle ore 15:00 alle ore 16:30 (circa) si terra' inoltre un talk di Elena Grandi ("of Valhalla") dal titolo "Basi di Git": di seguito l'abstract del talk.

Dr Stoll: Or how I learned to stop worrying and love the GPL

My Free Software journey starts with The Cuckoo’s Egg. Back in the early 90s a family friend suggested I might enjoy reading it. He was right; I was fascinated by the world of interconnected machines it introduced me to. That helped start my involvement in FidoNet, but it also got me interested in Unix. So when I saw a Linux book at the Queen’s University bookshop (sadly no longer with us) with a Slackware CD in the back I had to have it.
