I was surprised today on my way to work. I saw something called "the sun". It 's a yellow Ball that makes the sky brighter! A wonderful phenomenon that I haven't seen at such an early hour for months!

Examples in Rust docs use println!() for everything, so it's really difficult for beginners to conceptualise scope and syntax.

match foo {
Some(bar) => println!("{}", bar),
_ => println!("No bar.")

Gives me no indication of how to use it in practice.

match foo {
Some(bar) => let baz = bar,
_ => println!("No bar.")
// Is baz in scope, here?

Maybe this is intuitive for C users, but it would be nice to have more concrete examples in the docs.

I work in IT which is the reason this house has:

- mechanical windows
- mechanical door locks
- no Alexa/HomeKit/Google
- no Internet connected thermostats, lamps, or whatnots
- a dumb TV
- wall switches for lights

Are there any out-of-the-box blogs or CMSes in Python? Or at least something that is not PHP? I'd like something that I can hack on, but which comes in a working state *before* I start to break things myself...

Someone should make an open source printer. If nothing else, at least I'd be able to find out WHY it's not working.

"I use Linux as my operating system," I stated proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. He swiveled around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision. "Actually," he said with a grin, "Linux is just the kernel. You use GNU+Linux!" I don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk: "I use Abyss, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. It's Linux, but not GNU+Linux."

The smile quickly drops from the man's face. His body began convulsing, he foamed at the mouth, and he dropped to the floor with a sickly thud. As he writhed around he screamed, "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!" In a cool fashion, I replied "Abyss uses the LLVM compiler suite, GCC uninvolved."

With a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life was ejected from his body. He lied on the floor, cold and limp. I've womansplained him to death.

Wow. Domain names is starting to become a pretty scary place, huh? What are the good hosts / registrars these days?

It took me like four days, but I finally figured out how to make a jail and get it to talk to the outside world.

The slides and the handout from my @eurobsdcon tutorial 'An Introduction to Hardware Hacking with FreeBSD' are now on the talks page on my website


How do you manage a password manager? I find myself keeping copies of my database file on several systems and disks, with no particular way to keep them synchronised.
