I have reached the peak of today's . The eldest made shortbread and successfully deduced they could use 2 1/4 cups to make up the 1/2 cup of sugar they needed.

This was originally going to be documentation for but it makes more sense as a blog post. What goes into a boot: qemu.org/2020/07/03/anatomy-of

School drop off achieved, Monday daily driver updates complete (moar native-comp and multi threaded for ). How productive can I be in the morning?

I don't often have to interact with web APIs but when I do mode comes to the rescue

Finally the full release. From my point of view a repository without full revision history is a code dump and not FLOSS. Code history is important - I almost always look at the commit message that added a line before I decide to change it. Understanding !=> doomed repetition ;-)

Want to test your code will run on the worlds most powerful supercomputer, powered by ? has you covered ;-)

While reviewing some code for a testing tool which works comparing two execution streams I've just realised that while there is a master the second process has always been the apprentice πŸ˜„ See it's not that hard to keep terms inclusive.

I love the power open source tools can put in the hands of creators.

This VFX work is absolutely incredible, and it becomes even more amazing when I tell you that it’s made in Blender (which is free and open-source) and the work of a SINGLE PERSON (@mrdodobird@twitter.com, who you should follow)

SK also augments this with an excellent testing regime but the point stands that the cultural context to responses is important. I wonder how much grumbling there would be if we had to fill out the same number of contact forms as Germans do as they go about their day?

I've only been @ Linaro for a little over 5 years but it's rewarding working in an ecosystem which understands FLOSS is the key to successful adoption and a lot of that enabling work is done here.

So the reason I have multiple child accounts for the kids on website is because the recommended way of dealing with a lost password for under-13s is literally to create a new account. Apparently allowing the linked adult account to reset the password is too hard.

So once problem having purchased the equality bundle is going through the list and figuring out which games are a) install-able and b) my jam is going to take some time.

A perusal of my Twitter stream confirms that social media is divided into angry shouters so full of self-righteous certainty that their views are correct they don't hesitate to pile in, and those too scared to express any serious opinion at all so keep their posts light & neutral
