By 1974 Hewlett Packard had created another first: the HP-65 programmable pocket calculator. Programmes were stored on magnetic cards slotted into the unit. It was even used during the Apollo-Soyuz space mission to make manual course corrections.

How about if, instead of ditching Twitter for Mastodon, we all start blogging and subscribing to each other's Atom feeds again instead? The original distributed social network could still work pretty well if we actually start using it

You can take any BSD (OpenBSD is the easiest) and learn more C by reading the code than with any C book. Or better, reference the APUE 3rd edition while reading the source code.

This is the type of hacking that impresses me so much. It preserves the original creators art and enhances it so that more people can enjoy it. The 42 byte patch is a work of art unto itself.

Full immersion in the ed(1) universe is useful to unixers in general because ed is a precursor for so many other tools. The other things you mention might have some hallucinatory or other quasi-spritual effect but I wouldn't know.

I’ve used ed (thanks to ’s book) a couple of times in the past days, whenever Terminal emulation/shared libs blew vi/vim usage :)

current's hostname.if join (wifi list to join) now makes it really shine on laptops. Now liking my OpenBSD-Thinkpad even more. Thanks for the awesome work! (i just upgraded from 6.3 to latest snapshot - last time i did that, i had to compile from source and no pkg repo)

Super cool. “Plastic” cup and lid of coffee cup (rest of which is paper) are made of corn starch. Behaves just like plastic but biodegrades in 30 days. This is a Welsh council doing this. Zero single use plastic. If they can afford to so can Starbucks/Costa et al.
