If you want to support OpenSource and the things that I do head on over. This is my first Gig like this so Feedback and suggestions are heartly welcome.
And they seem to have fixed the autocert bug in master but not in the release. There seems to be a lot in master which is not in any release yet.
Ah there is an update shell script which pulls in the docker distribution repo itself and then builds that... that is complicated. But ok. That looks to be open source then. Just very complex and undocumented build step to get the image and committing the binary.... quality....
Yes it does have a open released version. But that seems rather badly maintained. It's still using the ancient and unmaintained letsencrypt manager instead of autocert.
Dear readers. I am curious. Do you think Software distributed as docker images. Which are packaged from a Binary committed to a Github repo can be considered OpenSource? The Software in question is #docker registry btw. https://github.com/docker/distribution-library-image
Hands up if your 90s computer’s new email notification chime was “*thwack* Message for you, sir” from Holy Grail.
I think open source work has uniquely qualified us for situations like these. Working efficiently online using the right tools for it, collaborating with people remotely. It’s not just about sharing the code, but being together even though we’re not in the same room.
@firstname.lastname@example.org For whatever it's worth, in implementing inotify for SmartOS, I couldn't resist from editorializing about some of its idiosyncrasies in the man page: https://smartos.org/man/5/inotify
Important PostgreSQL options for ZFS (and other COW file systems):
wal_init_zero = off # zero-fill new WAL files
wal_recycle = off # recycle WAL files
On a COW file system, there is no benefit to pre-allocating files; you get new blocks with each new write anyway.
This is a cool way of visualizing ownership and borrowing in #rustlang by Phil Ruffwind! https://rufflewind.com/2017-02-15/rust-move-copy-borrow
Seems like there's interest in making an editor plugin to visualize lifetimes too–https://blog.adamant-lang.org/2019/rust-lifetime-visualization-ideas/. Did that ever go anywhere?
Ok so here is the offer- if you are a clinician, and there is an IP issue standing in the way of saving lives- the company will not send the parts on Net 90, or does not have them, I will get it reverse engineered and serve as a teams human shield/patent bullet catcher in China.
Compiling the new firefox esr for #illumos getting this message "Reticulating splines..." @email@example.com nice easteregg?
Video BIOS for bhyve
~Sun Camera II~
Information online about this one seems to be lost to the ages. What I can piece together is that it's a webcam made by Sun in the late 90s, with NTSC output. This example is missing the sliding bit to cover the lens when not in use.
More info welcome!
Honored (and a little intimidated!) to be in the line-up for my first COVID-era all-virtual conference this Friday! Kudos to @OxidizeConf@twitter.com for their creativity and speed -- we need this more than ever! https://twitter.com/OxidizeConf/status/1239985406386614273
me: i hope my lucky charms rations last through this pandemic.
my mom: i, uh...i don't think there is going to be a run on lucky charms.
