I am a Buddhist anarchist forging my own way in this world.

Recovering from capitalist abuses, I now work to create systems that protect humanity and our home.

I am ready to build and to learn.

software pol i guess 

ive talked about this before but holy shit microsoft has the most insidious evil tech company vibes

yknow how their whole thing is "we love open source software :) we want to make a better world and we're totally not just another capitalist corporation with ulterior motives :))"

...and then they make parts of vscode that are advertised as significant features intentionally break if it's an open source build without telemetry

I happened across a pile of these rugged laptops. OpenBSD installer kernel panics, so I'm taking ArchStrike for a spin on one of them for giggles.

The real story here is how apparent it suddenly has become that virtually nobody in the media has a clue what mastodon is.

I've just finished writing the initial draft of HTMLite! Went through and added links to all the other specifications I cited! Whilst incorporating some other feedback I've received. Added a new appendix to hold duplicates of all those links.

I'm sure there's plenty of cleanup and proof-reading left (any cryptographers want to fix my <keygen> specification?), but I'll back off for a bit now in favor of others.

Intel is switching to a foundry business model because they cannot keep up with x86 designs, which tends to be locked to specific manufacturing nodes, and they can't make new nodes cost effectively anymore.

This also confirms my gut feeling on why they are trying to get cozy with Sifive and the RISC-V community. With everyone wanting to use embedded processors that doesn't require sacrificing substantial income to Arm, RISC-V is the perfect vehicle to advance Intel over Arm.

The Venezuelan president joining Mastodon didn't get nearly as much media attention

Turns out, a little work, AUR, and a RTL-SDR turns the PineTab into a communications receiver. Nice!

The making a website experience is just 90% "Why isn't this thing working. How do I get this thing to work"
