How to have doas insult you (with insults straight from deraadt@):

Success! After wrangling with radeondrm/EFI issues, I finally managed to get 6.3 running on my old iMac with multiple monitors fully supported (thanks to some manual modeline work with cvt and xrandr)

Update/expansion of my intro last year. I'm now going into fourth year maths rather than theoretical physics, having switched degrees. (That's assuming I pass some exams this week that I deferred due to illness).

I brew beer as a hobby, and code when I have spare time. I enjoy writing science fiction, but I'm a long way away from publishing anything.

I have 111 characters spare so: My favourite equation is $$\int_M \mathrm{d}\omega = \int_{\partial M}\omega$$

Oh, no, 'Linux' is just one part of the operating system. The whole package that you're thinking of is actually called GNU's Monster.

Hey fediverse, I’m looking for a #job in IT!
I’ve got six years of experience in the field and I’ve been managing a fairly large homelab for a few years too. I can work with Unix-like systems (both #BSD and #Linux) and networks.
I have decent experience in automation, both by scripting myself and using Ansible, and I can write code as well (mainly Go these days but I can pick up Python again if needed, and I’m not against learning new languages).
I’m looking for an interesting and challenging position in systems and/or networks engineering, or more specific stuff like storage, virtualization or even databases. Pretty much anywhere in the European Union is fine (I’ve got french citizenship), including full remote jobs, and I don’t mind having to travel regularly.
You’ll find my resume here and a bit more on the stuff I do in my homelab here. Boosts appreciated!

Whoo boy, this is the most public statement I've ever signed:

Let's hope some good for comes of this all.

@hirojin oh, the OOM killer is easy to understand: it will always fire too late and kill the most critical process

I have access to a laser engraver this weekend.

Any other finitists/constructivists here on mathstodon?

Be sure to test this! jcs@ has done the seemingly impossible, in addition to further refining the pledges for Firefox, and adding new pledges for the GPU process, he's also done the heavy lifting to add unveil(2) support! Reducing the very broad {r,w,c}path filesystem access.

#OpenBSD

RT @jcs@twitter.com I've been working on enhancing the security of OpenBSD's Firefox port over the past couple weeks and would like some wider testing jcs.org/patches/ff-port-unveil

Google kind of sucks. I am curious about how close to the speed of light we can get (in a spaceship for instance). We're not even close to 0.01c as things stand, but I have many questions: are there engineering reasons to believe we will/won't get to p*c for any p? What tech is being proposed/ruled out etc. no matter what I search, google shows me things like "why can't we/what would happen if we go faster than light?" and all sorts of intro stuff that I already know.

Wow, we did not expect the level of interest you all have had in the #PineTime!

- Cost will be approximately 25USD
- Charging dock included in price
- Built-in heartbeat monitor
- Case built of Zinc alloy and plastic
- Battery life measured in days
- Sorry, can't run Linux itself. SoC is nRF52832, which uses a Cortex-M4 core. That's why we need FreeRTOS :)

Joe boosted

This is the PineTime. A companion for your Linux smartphone, and new side-project of ours. More news coming in the future...

(If you have experience with FreeRTOS or mbed, and are interested, please get in touch!)

Ugh. Library online fee payment system works in but not .

Hey Fediverse! What's your favorite #BSD? (I only have 4 options here so I picked the most popular ones :/) #FreeBSD #OpenBSD #NetBSD #DragonflyBSD #Unix

A Mastodon instance for maths people. The kind of people who make $$\pi z^2 \times a$$ jokes. Use $$ and $$ for inline LaTeX, and $ and $ for display mode.
