"Most modern browsers... have vulnerabilities that allow hosts of malicious websites to extract hundreds to thousands of URLs in a user’s web history, per new research from the University of California San Diego...
The only browser that was immune to the attacks was Tor Browser"
Yup, sounds about right.
Mark Miller wrote a very nice tribute on that page. Another nice tribute is Mark's introduction to Norm's keynote at last year's ocap conference. If you don't watch the talk, the first few minutes of Mark explaining the important of Norm's work is quite good https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hEDCXTpx0R8&list=PLCq8mSCP664TUdgHl1cD5sDiAmrDoio2p

I resisted buying another proprietary console since the nintendo wii came out. That was well over a decade ago.
I caved. Bought a Switch and two games tonight (Mario & Zelda, how typical)
since I have an RSI, having a highly ergonomic keyboard is not really optional for me, but is an accessibility issue
fearing my kinesis keyboard is finally dying, after over a decade of use
really need to convert to a more principled and explicit rather than ad-hoc approach to my guix user profile... it's annoying to remember all the packages I installed
At least having my configuration for the guix system meant reinstalling all the system packages and doing system configuration was a a breeze
Please boost widely !
well I am up and running again
will find out if the problems are gone in time (whether random freeze or failures to boot occur, which they haven't yet)
Also, before I go offline to replace this thing, want to mention that I'll be at the Boston Lisp usergroup tonight (well, unless something goofy happens) https://common-lisp.net/project/boston-lisp/ Pretty exciting talk about migrating code there tonight by the Gambit Scheme main dev. Maybe see you there?
My laptop has been averaging instantly freezing up completely about once a day, and attempts to boot sometimes completely fail, taking up to 30 attempts at times. I did upgrade the disk in this machine myself; maybe it was bad. Attempting to reinstall with a new disk... hopefully that'll fix it.
Reform aluminum parts have arrived!
time to get off my computer, I have friends coming over for tabletop gaaaaaaames (and I gotta do a quick grocery run)
