I was aware of #CampGPNd, but didn't prepare, so I won't be taking part.
If you don't know it already, `entr` is a great #unix #cli command to run a command when file(s) change.
Great way to add “run my tests automatically when the files change”
y'know, I actually 𝘭𝘪𝘬𝘦 #systemd.
I notice some people trying to make The Bill Gates Argument in different formulations (i.e. that developers must always be financially compensated, and that non-capitalist production is immoral). What really happened was that there were two manoevres against public software.
The first one was The Google Manoevre in the mid 2000s, where they figured out a way to use public software without "conveying" it. It was a loophole in GPLv2.
The second manoevre was that companies realized that they could still capture and gatekeep value by controlling the infrastructure rather than the software that runs on it. Hence we get The Cloud, "serverless", giant data centers and free software written for that environment rather than for consumer hardware.
Grrr! I'm not supposed to get segfaults when writing #Rust programmes! This makes things hard
Time to put on my headphones, listen to some power #metal and whack out some code.
Almost finished with a refactor
ah #rust lifetime checker we meet again
