Let's do a quick or ( )

Hello. I'm Samuel Hodgkins. I'm some random person from Britain that isn't particularly interesting or special but I do have some interests. There's - usually with or another *nix (and some interest in ), - such as or and sometimes . I have a rarely updated site that mostly serves as a blog but is also a wiki. I like Toad from Mario and this is shown in my custom avatar.

I have no idea why something in the network went badly for an hour or two. But it works now.

I've had a lot of followers today for some reason. I should boost the introductions post I did in March maybe.

@colincornaby @coryw tired: writing a script to migrate from Mastodon to Pleroma
wired: writing an ActivityPub extension for SharePoint and migrating from Mastodon to that

I want to port the COFF binary format to a custom OS designed for Wang computers (and name it Wang)

So I can call it the Wang COFF format

I know, I know

I AM VERY MATURE.

this is an actual real headline today: 'British tourist moans her Benidorm holiday was ruined by 'too many Spanish people''

When you look at the entire article it makes much more sense but you can't deny that alone it's a bloody hilarious headline.

terrible idea of the day:
In , use github.com/harpocrates/inline- to include some inline code in an otherwise normal Haskell program. However, the inline rust code uses gitlab.com/jD91mZM2/jrust to add a whole additional level of 'what the fuck why' with code looking similar to embedded as inline Rust inside some Haskell.

Can we do weirder and more fucky or should I stop now?

@samis @thegibson @chuck ...this was even documented by VIA as existing, although with admonitions to not use it, and with its ISA not documented.

Basically, the VIA C3 uses the same technique as every other modern x86 CPU, of translating x86 code into a proprietary RISC architecture. The C3, unlike every other modern x86 CPU, allows you to expose the underlying RISC ISA by enabling ALTINST in the Feature Control Register.

So, I extracted a copy of Respondus LockDownBrowser. It has a remarkable similarity to your regular package with many files.

so I read a bout on reddit about someone's school making them install shitty professional spyware and now I want to and something of that variety. I'll go do that now.

how easy? this easy: sudo syncoid -r ZFS/samis ZFS-USB/samis;

send and syncoid make backups and transfers really easy.

Right, local .swf files when testing can't access the network in the absence of a flag. Easy enough to flip, time to try again.
