facts about #rust
- you can get very wrapped up in it
- one solution is to use unwrap()
- if you're not an "Ok" value the thread will crash
• subslice patterns, e.g. [x0, .., x1] => match only first and last element
• nested-OR patterns, e.g. Some(x | y) == Some(x) | Some(y)
• binding inner fields with @
• move & ref bindings in same pattern
"Airlines are burning thousands of gallons of jet fuel flying empty 'ghost' planes so they can keep their flight slots during the coronavirus outbreak"
Sure, I don't disagree with that. In their position we would probably decide and act similarly.
But if the rules of our system are that strange, maybe we're playing this entire game wrong.
Intel has another CVE. This time it can't be fixed!
I've just realized that #Rust has eliminated defensive coding for me.
Defensive coding is "I know it's not supposed to be `null`, but I'll check just in case" or "I know the caller isn't supposed to mutate or free this object, but I'll make a copy just in case" or "I know that function should be thread-safe, but I'll avoid threads just in case"
In Rust nullability, mutability and thread-safety are encoded in types, so I never have to second-guess them.
I found two:
1) "Computer Networks" by Andrew S. Tanenbaum
2) "Computer Networks: Principles, Technologies and Protocols for Network Design" by Victor and Natalia Olifer.
These books are very, very big. I looked at the content, and there are some very low-level theory that I don't really need.
Or maybe you can advise me on something else?
Das nenne ich mal "gut investierte" 100 Millionen $.....sollten wir auch sofort machen hier.....🤦♂️
NSA-Vorratsdatenspeicherung: 4 Jahre, 100 Millionen US-Dollar, ein Treffer
Once again about this: some people think that if something in the internet isn't technically impossible, it must be socially acceptable. Which is just... stupid.
Bypassing social protocols and snooping on people means you are a creep and don't respect people. People _will_ be mad if you do it. Yes, some people don't care about others being mad at them, but do you?
Publication on Fediverse
This new book from the Institute of Network Cultures has a chapter on the Fediverse (last chapter in the book). You can get the book freely (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0) from their website. Tell me what you think, if you read it.
Auch wenn ich das #fediverse mag: Manchmal geht mir die Selbstzufriedenheit und -verliebtheit, die man hier gelegentlich in Beiträgen liest, gehörig auf den Zeiger. Nein, wir sind *nicht* die Erleuchteten, die pauschal klüger als alle anderen und deswegen berufen und befugt sind, den Rest der Welt zu belehren. Je schneller wir das einsehen, desto besser. 😐
