So I'm rolling on BTRFS on / and /home, with compression. Let's see how it goes

What if: grep but with PEG instead of regex 🤔

Jenkins sucks (like most software in this world) but I prefer it over futile attempts of creating DSLs with YAML.

Microsoft releases their own builds of OpenJDK. Sounds like April fool's bit it's true

Prototype for parser extension is done. It can't handle formatting in text link yet.

To break a long streak of doing nothing I started working on a Goldmark extension for parsing Wikimedia style links. Yeah, I still want to write my own wiki.

static typing is better but I'm not gonna tell anyone they're wrong for choosing dynamic typing. if they appreciated being told when they're making a mistake they wouldn't be using a dynamically typed language in the first place

I started working on my icon pack again, which is heavily inspired by the Feather icons ( ).

- Just like Feather, you can change the stroke width
- Some icons look different
- Many icons are new
- All icons are designed to be discernible at 16x16 and to look sharp at 32x32, with the default stroke width of 1.5px.

The repo contains the Inkscape source files.

You can build optimized SVGs (good for web use) with `make icons`. They're saved in a folder called "output".
That requires scour and GNU parallel.

You can also build the showcase from this screenshot with `make showcase`. It is saved in a folder called "showcase".
That requires Pandoc and jq.

I love this so much. It perfectly expresses thoughts I’ve been having about the madness of human complexity, and how straightforward common sense is too often lacking.

oh hey :)

"We are thrilled to announce that Nokia has transferred the copyright of Plan 9 to the Plan 9 Foundation. This transfer applies to all of the Plan 9 from Bell Labs code, from the earliest days through their final release."

This talk sent me into EAV data model rabbit hole


Teal is with static typing.

Pretty neat. (I love languages targeting Lua).

"Police are warning students and universities not to access Sci-Hub, an "illegal website" that allows users to download scientific research papers normally locked behind expensive subscriptions."

Very bad indeed. That name again: Sci-Hub. Remember it so you can avoid it. Ahem.

So I installed raspian (ugh) on rpi4, attached 2tb external hdd, formatted it to btrfs installed samba, and I'm doing backups. Works well so far, 71mb from 2gb of ram used, small load (~0.13).

How to implement T9 dictionary

Other people: well you could use a trie...

Me, man of culture: hmm you could build regex like '^[tuv][abc][abc][jkl][def]' and grep whole dictionary... 😂

I love when some projects have ambition to beat old, battle tested software in their own game. Like Zig aiming to be faster than C or Kakoune requiring less keystrokes that Vim most of the time. Gotta aim high yo
