That moment you find out that the Intel wireless firmware ranks in disk usage between mariadb and dotnet runtime:

mariadb-server 90977216
iwl7260-firmware 79809515
dotnet-runtime-2.1 73359769

…and people complain about the nvidia driver beeing a huge "blob".

but seriously, somewhere between 2000 and 2019 the IT industry seamlessly transitioned from

"we provide precision engineering tools, your data is yours, you should not need to trust us or anyone, mathematics is your guarantee, crypto 4 ever. "


"give us your data. all of it. give. no secrets. hold nothing back. in return we will... train AIs on it.. and provide unspecified 'services'... for someone, who may be you... that can change at any time... and we are funded by, uh. Look, a unicorn!"

Read about re:claimID, checked and proceeded to to learn about GNS that re:claimID is using. Website philosophy is: "GNUnet is supposed to be an anarchistic network [...]" - I'll need popcorn.

"Not today", replied Stride, and turned around with a segfault at a4e5b0 ip 0000000000a4e5b0 sp 00007ffd7a6e8c68 error 15 in stride[200000+1601000]. C'mon, you claimed I'd have 4 more weeks to move on

Wow this string function looks a lot like the one in my utilities lib I take from project to project... Oh. It *is* that function... Except it uses a different string type... Because I made a new string type... Because of an old bug in UE4's Linux build with std::string.

Dusting off an old project is like a form of archaeology.

FWIW I'm not using UE4 for this project anymore, but I think that bug in UE4 (or possibly in Clang itself) is long dead by now... I hope.

I watched Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and it was beautiful 👍

This is your monthly reminder that compiling your game/program with multiple compilers and on multiple platforms is an amazingly easy in towards chaos engineering

Parked in the wrong spot today by accident. Looked like a regular [payed] parking lot (lines and everything) but it must not to be used for parking during that exact time of the day. Makes no sense to me but yeah it was written on some sign that I simply didn't see so there's now 15 bucks on my head - additional to the 4 bucks I payed for that gorram lot to begin with 😂 Bonus point: The cashpoint was right next to the lot. Such an evil trap for the unwary 😜

Following on from an earlier tweet, I'd like to lay down a bit of a challenge to creators for the new year:
Try to do something positive with your work in 2019.
It's easy to be gritty, dark, and doomy. To spread fear and misery.
Try to create stuff that makes people happy.
