Was just chatting earlier today with our hardware design architect about my bumper sticker ":wq! Saves!" And turns out that we both were vi fans and discussion turned to emacs... And he asked me did I know TI had a LISP workstation created in 1984! I was like what?

Here's a little thing that may not be obvious to many people....

When you install an open-source app from Google Play or the Apple app store, there is no guarantee that what you install actually matches the public code.

@fdroidorg are doing a great service. They independently build the public source code for apps from scratch, review for common issues, and publish their builds. Thanks to "reproducible builds" it's possible to verify they do not tamper with the code.

I mean, I don't like to delve into the past, but I used to be the TI's technical support lead on N900. I mean, there was hardly a moment where the engineering team hadn't been just spectacular. But yeah.. sigh.. old wounds get opened time and again.
