I work at as a process engineer.

about semiconductor processing.

(I will not be answering questions about CPU design specifically, but about semiconductor processing in general)

This is an survey of Instructional Design Professionals in Latin America and the Caribbean (must be an ID professional residing in the region) from one of my former professors: utampa.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/f

If you could fill this out, it'd be most appreciated.

Wow, uuids in PostgreSQL are way easier to work with than I was expecting, didn't even need to touch libpq to solve one of the issues I was having.

PSA: Stop labelling people interested in OPSEC and privacy as "paranoid". Paranoia is a mental illness, heavily influenced by fear, that makes someone believe they're under constant threat even when there is no evidence for thinking so.

Being careful about your online identity, privacy, taking care of your passwords, and using second factor authentication is not paranoia. It's common sense.

There are malicious actors who want to get their hands on as much information as possible. This is fact.

Ok, now I can be a bit more cavalier with my dev efforts on , it's not perfect, but I have a hot standby of all my data on , so it'll be easy to recover if I end up trashing my install again.
Next issue: find time to dedicate to dfbeadm and any other DragonFly related work.

Neat, just got an email from DO about the latest CPU flaws, don't recall getting any for issues like L1TF and I think it was Foreshadow in particular? The reason I've had SMT disabled on all the machines I work with and protect for the past few MONTHS.
Thank you , , and in particular for being proactive in providing mitigations for the vulnerabilities Theo speculated about last year and many others, making security easier for the rest of us to implement well.

I think platform biases are interesting, two people in a chat have issues on a BSD system they aren't willing to troubleshoot? Must be an instable platform. Try several different methods to clone a Linux install to a testing instance? Must be user error.
I just hope the irony isn't lost on them when someone complains to them that Linux is broken because it's not Windows.

It seems Theo is right after all! marc.info/?l=openbsd-misc&m=11

I'm thinking I'll look into writing a simple disk monitoring daemon, just something that can accept messages from a client and respond with the relevant disk info.
Probably going to be in way over my head, but it'd be nice to have a way to query drive info so it can be part of my status bar, and I'm sure I'll learn things.

I'm still not into describing main() and I've added 2 more commits to `ip` because past me was being stupid and making weird calloc(3) calls when all I needed to to was pass by reference.

I wonder if I can write a HAMMER2 PFS to a file and then mount it on a remote system, like pseudo zfs-send....

Well, there's one good thing I can say about ads: the mailers give me another excuse to go explore the area, there's a few restaurants that really look worthwhile.

I'm not really into metal but this is

Hooray! I can think clearly again! Now just waiting for my sinuses to clear up so I can breathe properly.

I really hate fevers and sinus crap, makes it hard to concentrate. My manager's pretty cool though, let me come home early to get some rest. Hopefully haven't infected anyone at the office.

Does any one know about Scholarships in the US for international students? I can't find any that I'm eligible for. Most give $1000 to one student out of thousands. And pretty much every one of them require writing essay on their product or something (I'm really bad at Essays)

Stupid meat needs to process acetometaphine faster so my head doesn't explode

Silly me, forgot to properly test the core Cisconomicon functions before demoing to my mentor. Got it fixed though, and now I can also start writing some tests to ensure a functional build.
