Wow. A new immediate-mode GUI library for Rust, running at 60fps on my phone using WebGL/WebAssembly. emilk.github.io/emigui/index.h My iMac Pro can’t render Finder at 60 fps when I move it around the screen... #30daysofoseka

The fuel consumption of my 1998 toyota corolla is about 0.08 square millimetres.
Think hard before telling me I'm wrong ;)

It appears that zoom distributes several LGPL libraries in its Debian installer - I doubt they (could) have obtained an exemption from the authors (libfaac1, libmpg123, libquazip, libturbojpeg, maybe libicu*). No licence file, or source offer anywhere to be seen.

Interesting take (in 2015)
"Due to GitHub's recent decision to switch from an organization focussed on software development to one that also promotes a left-wing political agenda this project was moved to: blah blah"

Asking for a friend

"For people who run Rails (or Mastodon) for >100 users:
- What's a good guideline of number of users per unit of compute hardware?
- What's a good guideline of number of users per unit of DB hardware?

I am not interested in hosting options.

The sound of rain on the roof in Christchurch - haven't had much of that in the last months. About time too, I see mature trees looking sadly dehydrated round here.

The (incorrect) official instructions for installing minecraft.deb don't fill me with confidence:
apt-get install Minecraft.deb

As always, Naomi Wu has thought things through and researched properly. Well done!

This is a DIY PAPR (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Powered_) HEPA filtered air is blown in under pressure, exhalation passes through a check valve and is directed out the P100 3M filter. Potentially for high-risk environments- testing it without a CO2 sensor is also a good way to kill yourself.

Grateful that our country has sane and compassionate leadership at this moment

Humans are really bad a predicting/controlling (i.e. having a mental model of) systems that have delay and/or exponential growth - E.g. global heating and now this pandemic.
