well since we all agree that a coworker is someone who orks cows, it’s obvious that a manager ages men, right

@netkitty @JordiGH "In character" means taking a letter and treating it as a box, and snuggling insider it. I recommand the letter O, which doesn't have uncomfortable sharp corners.

ukpol, shitshow 

@craigmaloney Please don't. The ecological cost of throwing such toxic waste into our nearest star is too great.

I would like to find more deafies on the Fediverse. Anybody know of any besides me?

Sometimes, I miss my academic work.

If you are running an Internet / telecoms / computer law undergrad or postgrad law module and fancy a (remote, unless v close to Newbury) guest lecture, do drop me a line!

My first free Rust course for FOSS developers filled up in just a few days. I've just sent out emails to those who signed up about location, and to those whom I had to put on a waiting list.

I don't want to promise more than I can deliver, so I'm not committing to running more than the first course. However, I hope to do so, and possibly many more. If you'd like to be notified about any further courses for this, see liw.fi/training/rust-foss-dev/ for more information.

Whoop! @glynmoody's new book, "Walled Garden", is now available for download. I am looking forward to reading this.

No money. No registration. Just a click.

PDF, ePub, and .mobi.

@jande Sounds good enough for me. If you want me to put on you the waiting list, drop me an email.

Pretty damn please, if you publish something, anything, on a blog, site, whatever... I beg of you, make sure that publishing date is stated somewhere!

For example: how am I supposed to know, for example, if this is a freshly added new functionality, an old and since deprecated tech preview, or something in between?

Seriously, just display the damn publishing date, people!

@algernon I admit I'm envious: still waiting even for a tracking number for mine. But I can be patient.

@stefan Follow me here or follow my blog to hear if there will be new courses.

Do you write code for free and open source projects? Would you like to learn the basics of the Rust programming language? I’m offering to teach the basics of Rust to free and open source software programmers, for free.


@obra TFW when your native language uses a decimal comma to separate integer and decimal, and a period to group digits in big numbers, and you look at prices online and not sure what they actually are. Especially when _some_ websites try to be friendly and localize numbers and times to wherever they think you are.

indicatif is a really nice #Rust library. I was able to add a nice progress bar to focus-send in like 5 minutes.

@Greg I run a PC with a bunch of hard drives and Debian with mdadm for RAID1+0 and lvm2 on top of that. But I'm OK doing the sysadmin myself.

@Anarcat @joeyh Rust tends to take a little longer to learn than Python or Go, but in my honest, but not humble, opinion, it's worth it.

Which reminds me, I meant to run a free Rust training course for FOSS developers who want to learn Rust. I should get on that.

@Anarcat @joeyh Rust is what I use now as my primary language. Rewriting my own software in Rust is the ultimate Rust fashion.
