people get obsessed with the nines which leaves some good opportunities to pick up some of the other numbers at a discount is all I am saying. shop around.

Nostalgia inducing thread exploring Duke Nukem design and engine quirks.
RT @Foone
Did you ever notice that the theater in level 1 of Duke Nukem 3D has a big hallway off the lobby, and when you go through there, it's a bathroom? Just the one.

It's a doorless unisex public bathroom with urinals. Weird.

@KekunPlazas Nice work, congrats! I'm just getting my first libhandy app up & running and I'm very impressed with the entire ecosystem.

@cwebber It also seems to be completely sold out! I'll try looking for a copy in local bookstores, but I'm not very optimistic.

@cwebber Huh, I completely missed this coming out. Sounds like a spiritual successor to SICP, which I'm currently rereading. Off to order my copy!

We now have an unstable repo for those wanting the latest and greatest ;).

Just edit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/extrepo_mobian.sources and replace Suite: mobian with Suite: unstable

Latest phosh and megapixels are already waiting for you there.

Shameless self-plug

So, I may have been living under a rock, but I just recently realized that actual UEFI bootloaders exist for the Raspberry Pi 3 & 4! That's exciting - I was never really a fan of ready-made images, and here I am GRUB-booting vanilla Debian testing on my Pi 3!

Info for my rock-dwelling comrades:

Heyyyy it's released! is a distributed systems learning tool: a workbench where you can write your own "distributed" systems in any language, using JSON messages via STDIN/STDOUT. Wanna write a gossip system in Perl? A transactional KV store in bash? Maelstrom will run it, show you how messages flow through the system, and verify key safety properties.

@djsundog Hey, have you received your yet? I've been contemplating getting a soldering iron for a while, and this seems like a fairly good deal. I was wondering how you found it?

I'm very much a novice when it comes to all things DIY electronics, but I've had a soldering iron in my hands once or twice in life. :)
