Surprise, surprise, Raspberry Pi 4 has been launched!

Faster CPU, dual 4k HDMI support, up to 4GB RAM, USB type C, USB3 and (finally!) no more bottlenecking the ethernet port over USB2: full gigabit speeds!

Also: same old price 😍

One reason I prefer the ThinkPad TrackPoint over a trackpad is scrolling. Turns out not everyone knows you can hold the middle mouse button and use TrackPoint to smoothly & precisely scroll in 4 directions. Keeps hands on the keys too. ❀️ πŸ’»

It doesn't matter if you agree with a project's coding style conventions.

What matters is that there _are_ coding style conventions that people adhere to.

A friend of mine just just tried debugging why he couldn't compile various pieces of software (for example cmake) and stumbled upon something rather hilarious:

As it turns out the compiler checks during the configure stage fail because they do a string match on the word "warning". If it finds that word in the output it rejects the compiler, as it assumes it to be not working correctly.

My friend's username? Oh, nothing special, it's simply "m_warning".

With #golang and #rust growing in popularity, we're really seeing some much needed improvements & love for classic command-line tools.

elvish, micro, ripgrep, lsd, gopass, gotop are all amazing projects in their own right - to name just a few.

Stumbled upon other awesome projects just recently? Share them with me!

I figured out the appleid.apple.com issue.

It sniffs your User-Agent.

If it says Linux, Bad Gateway error.

WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK

IT WORKS WITH A WINDOWS UA

IT WORKS WITH A BSD UA

IT WORKS WITH A GOD DAMN OS/2 UA

NOT LINUX

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU

From the keynote of the 22nd European Police Congress:

"I understand why the Darknet can be useful in autocratic systems. But in a free, open democracy, in my opinion, there is no legitimate benefit. If you use the Darknet, you are usually up to no good. This simple realization should also be reflected in our legal system."
