Y'all. My old crew from Birdland is slowly starting to make their way over to the fediverse.
I don't have the vocabulary to adequately express how this makes me feel. These are people I've known online for years.
People I've fussed at, laughed with, and supported each other through hard times.
It means a lot we're finding way to stay connected.
@hhardy01 From the paper's Conslusions section:
> The Petname Model is naturally embedded in human perception to identify different entities. Implementing it in computer networks and system is a natural
extension of human cognitive capabilities and represents a great aid for humans in digital environments. This fact has been demonstrated through several ap-
plications, experiments and proposals. A large scale adaptation of the Petname Model is therefore timely.
@hhardy01 @jalcine Uh, petnames aren't incompatible with URIs. Petname Tool is an example of a bookmark-based petname system designed to *complement* URIs, for instance https://www.w3.org/2005/Security/usability-ws/papers/02-hp-petname/
Here is a tiny warthog for your troubles, fellow tooters.
If you use Debian: you're got getting the recent Intel CPU bugfixes because Intel updated the firmware package's license to state that it's not redistributable.
If use Linux other than Debian and have the bugfixes: ask your maintainers why they're distributing software they're not legally allowed to.
And in any case: next time you purchase a CPU, evaluate whether AMD might be a better choice than Intel.
wish I had time to play with WASM stuff
