So the function builders’ semantics in Swift 5.1 turns out to be extremely powerful and versatile.

We are now starting to see a system programming language that strives to be cross platform, with formal ABI stability and variably clear idioms. Something that C++ couldn’t entirely achieve in 30 years.

Let’s hope Apple doesn’t fuck this up: the Swift team has been the coolest in keeping up the promise of open source development with a refreshingly transparent approach.

Heaven smells like freshly baked bread.

Aww, Firefox Bookmarks Sync is still a disaster. It never does the right thing...🤦‍♂️

Anybody around here using Swift for non-Apple related projects, perhaps on Linux or some BSD?

Turns out that... I like scotch.

Anybody interested in doing some C++ and Python development?

My team is hiring in Sunnyvale, CA. Ping me if interested!

Am I the only one around here deeming the choice of @mozilla to enable DoH on by default (in the US, for now) a particularly questionable one?

So the CEO of Mozilla Corporation has resigned... blog.mozilla.org/blog/2019/08/

This is interesting for news for whoever knows Mozilla from the inside as it may very well open yet another power struggle that - in turn - might damage Moz more than its current market position.

I’ve developed such a thin skin these days that even a fart would make me doubt myself.

Who knows, perhaps somebody in the Silicon Valley is starting to wake up?

Plain curiosity: is anybody here using cpio archives for anything other than ram filesystems?

So this guy turned his Macintosh SE/30 into a webserver.

And, of course, he makes it accessible to everybody over the Internet.

Head over to rhyal.com/ to sign his guestbook.

In case it goes offline, the Internet Archive has already done its job and cached it forever: web.archive.org/web/2019080416

2020: walmart buys tumblr for $10 and a gift card

I became such a socially awkward idiot...🙄🤦‍♂️

‪So Swift is really a thing in the backend?‬

There’s this news making a lot of noise on Twitter and reddit: apparently Chris Chibnall has left (or has been let go from) the production.

Fucking hell, this instructor guy is terrible.🤢
