The birth of #Linux
27 years ago.
On August 25 1991 Linus Torvalds wrote to comp.os.minix:
"I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and
professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones."
"won't be big" he said. 😃
Happy birthday, Linux, and congratulations to Mr. Torvalds.

#whyistayonmastodon sounds like an giant undecipherable mess of sounds.

Vet: You'll need to give him half of one of these tablets each day. They're quite small, it can be tricky ...
Me: It's OK, I know how to break a pill in half thank you. Can you direct me to the nearest nightclub toilet cubicle?
Q: What do you give the person who's got everything? A: Antibiotics.
On en parle depuis longtemps dans de très nombreux contextes, je l’ai enfin trouvée: la fameuse “poche de résistance”

RT @JamesBSumner@twitter.com: Yes, it was me who smuggled a large seabird into the plenary and launched it at the speaker's head with the words "Actually this is more of a cormorant than a question." I am to be considered for possible readmission to the society in 2038, which seems fair.

RT @firstname.lastname@example.org: Today as I was walking home after my run I saw a large lemon rolling down the hill. It kept rolling for about a quarter mile. And now you can see it, too.

The performance numbers here are quite impressive. Some caveats and limitations though, but djb claims they can be mostly overcome with more development effort.
RT @firstname.lastname@example.org First release of djbsort: super-fast constant-time automatically verified AVX2 sorting code for int32 arrays. https://sorting.cr.yp.to (Next target is ARM NEON.) Verification starts with the #angr toolkit for symbolic execution, which in turn uses libVEX from Valgrind.
RT @crazyKiwiClare@twitter.com: A big shout out to our wonderful bespoke battery builder extraordinaire Chris Forne. Thanks for these little Li-ion beauties that mean we are now going battery powered at Cacophony. #cacophonyDev #predatorfree2050
