Pinned toot

Seems like my profile is a bit empty with the migration so I'll post an /aboutme here for reference.

I like programming:
- Stronk object thinking advocate
- Write kernel drivers and baremetal code for a living
- Like C and Go, and deeply dislike C++

I enjoy tinkering with digital electronics and retro stuff. Once a year I open kicad and spend some hours pretending I know what I'm doing.

I like (trying to) design simple and functional stuff I can 3D-print with Openscad.

I enjoy video games, specially JRPGs, ARPGs, and stealth. Monhun is my fave franchise.

I watch anime, if I can withstand the cringe. Fate and Monogatari are my favorite series.

I read books, sometimes.

I also like plants and plushies.

I'm trying to give wayland a second chance so nouveau working well is kind of the first step here.

Trying out nouveau right now. It seems to have issues with vsync on my vertical screen, I don't know if a compositor can fix that.

An important #Linux phone is getting unveiled tomorrow. The hardware is incredible and the specs don't suck :D

Stay tuned for a video interview when the embargo lifts at 9am Eastern.

the fact that we’re socialized to be anxious about giving money to someone sleeping rough asking for some is fucked up

there should be classes about API design and project structure and management too. we just throw students in with a bunch of comfy abstractions like java and give them a bunch of one-off assignments that live in a single 100 line file then wonder why nobody understands a fucking thing about actually programming a computer when theyre done with school

This is a new one to me.

\[
3 > 2
\]

So multiply both sides and

\[
3 \log(1/2) > 2 \log (1/2)
\]

By the laws of logarithms,

\[
\log(1/2)^3 > \log(1/2)^2
\]

Since log is a monotone function.

\[
(1/2) ^ 3 > (1/2) ^2
\]

and therefore \(1/8 > 1/4\).

😁

Pseudo random class names and IDs for DOM elements are a threat to the open web and should be made illegal.
