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??
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!
Computers are just absolutely wack😂 😂
@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!
Also my new vim keycaps came in and I'm stoked 😎
#TIL about the special UNIX devices, /dev/full, /dev/random, and /dev/zero
If you write #Rust make sure you're running `cargo clean` every once in a while... it took my Hemingway directory from nearly 4GB to 1.3MB 😲
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.
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!
Hmmm I may have to look into this gemini thing...
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."
Neat read on Rust traits and how they work: http://huonw.github.io/blog/2015/01/peeking-inside-trait-objects/
C fellas really do be out here naming their functions `htons` or `ntohl` smh
