I'm not quite as pessimistic as this article, but I think it does raise a LOT of very important points. If Mozilla can't even make a new browser work, what hope do the rest of us have??

Lessons learned:
1. check your CDN if you're having SSL issues! Our cert was completely fine but Cloudflare was redirecting our https requests back to http. Make sure your CDN is cooperating!
2. Namecheap has *really* good support. The representatives were super helpful via chat and took their time explaining issues. Big props to them!

Holy moly after about 2 hours in the fighting chair I finally got the WordPress site I manage serving https 😌

@alcinnz Alright, thanks!

I'm thinking somebody does need to start an actual new desktop browser. Either based on Servo or a completely new engine. Unfortunately, it's going to be necessary to maintain some level of compatibility with the "modern" Web or it will never see broad adoption... I don't think Firefox is under desperate threat quite yet, but we need redundancy. Anyway, that's just a tangent. Your projects are certainly steps in the right direction!

Holy cow remapping caps lock to escape really does change the vim game completely

about the special UNIX devices, /dev/full, /dev/random, and /dev/zero

If you write make sure you're running `cargo clean` every once in a while... it took my Hemingway directory from nearly 4GB to 1.3MB 😲

Wahoo I have resurrected an old 2-switch macropad I had laying around! Debugging firmware is fun :)

My ideal (and probably impossible) future of tech is a world where everyone (or every household and business) owns their own server(s) (maybe colocated?) that runs all their stuff, like document sharing, IoT/"smart" devices, social networking, Web caching and searching, etc. etc. and everything is federated so everyone can still interact with each other.

There are things we can do to make this more feasible, but I don't expect it to happen easily or anytime soon.

I'm going to try to drive more like we're all on the same team and our goal is for everyone to get where they're going and less like it's me vs. everyone else and I have to fight through them to get to my destination

Another reason to switch to iPhone... the price tag still hurts tho, especially when the Pixel 4a will only be $349 and would probably serve my needs well. We shall see!

I have been seized by a sudden desire to make my own notebook from scratch... None of the notebooks I've found so far have all the features I need for an ideal bullet journaling notebook. Defo gonna trawl the web looking for tutorials once I'm done with this silly paper

Next move for Hemingway: getting rid of all the `unwrap`s

PSA fo xv6: "If you get errors like "undefined reference to `__udivdi3'", you probably don't have the 32-bit gcc multilib. If you're running Debian or Ubuntu, try installing the gcc-multilib package."

This is a server created by Jahziel Villasana (aka hapax). He's not sure what he's going to use it for yet...
