Why are most arguments against memory safe languages so incredibly lazy? "They don't solve all problems", yes, but they demonstrably solve quite a lot. "Everything needs to be rewritten in them first?", why exactly, we can't have safer leaf programs until we have rewritten the entire OS?

My typos out me as either a non-robot, or a clever robot. In the end the CAPTCHAs will be the judge of me.

Say what you will about ReCaptcha, I'll take clicking on pictures of road signs over this thing any day.
I'm a human (as far as I know) and I couldn't pass this challenge.

In an earlier thread, I wrote briefly about trans people in medieval Europe, and discussed some of the main issues when studying the medieval history of trans people.

Today, if you'll indulge me, I want to spend some time discussing a single person in detail. I want to talk about the way she's been written about, and about her and what she can teach us about life as a trans person 600 years ago.

This is the story of Eleanor Rykener.
