Just remembered a joke my beekeeping professor made about upstate New York burial practices during the 1918 influenza pandemic about twenty five years ago

How interested would you be in performing CAD operations from the command line?

The whole internet loves Count von Count, the adorable muppet who loves to count! *5 seconds later* We regret to inform you the count is a vampire.

the 3yo just heard his first cocteau twins on the radio and at the end of the song immediately demanded it again (bluebeard, for the record) <3

CGAL has changed a lot in the past decade. For one thing, the licenses have been harmonized. For another, uh, it's now header-only. Like, insanely complex and robust geometry algorithms all done entirely in roided-out templates. Unsurprisingly, everything takes forever to compile, but whatever, it works.

@wxcafe @phooky passing file descriptors around is pretty common, but not really like this

you could, in principle, invent a platform where the control plane exposes a port via a numbered file descriptor, but it would be less opaque to e.g. leave a socket in the container's filesystem or something

Perhaps very dumb Unix question that I'm only asking because I'm on a playground and not at a keyboard: is it possible to use numbered pipes beyond stdin, stout, stderr? Could I for example designate 3 as 'stdlog' and do something silly like "$ log_gen >&4"?
