      Brilliant advice from a shrewd investor. A+++ would read again.

        I bought this and combed through it to find interesting things. There’s lots of cool looking games in here, there’s a bunch of tabletop RPG related stuff, some visual/interactive novels, there’s two (i think) game engines (one 2d engine, and another a text adventure / interactive fiction engine). There’s also quite a few sets of tiles/sprites for game developers. It’s really a steal at $5 and goes to a good cause.

        I played much of the game “Oxenfree” tonight and it’s very well done. Creepy and fun.

          I’m glad this is still up!

            Well, I guess lhc@home is another good one, or folding@home.

            Man, this feels like a chapter in computing history coming to a close.

            1. 1

              Seriously. I remember being fascinated with the concept when I first heard about it around 2000-2001.

                  This is pretty cool. I can’t see too many people being able to fund such an endeavor, though. One solution may be coops: for example, my father is part of a coop providing internet access in his area.

                    Yeah starting an ISP is rarely a one-person project. But usually one person starting the initiative leads to more people joining if there’s room for that (mailing list, face-to-face meetups, etc)

                    But it doesn’t take that much resources to get started, especially for people who already have machines running in datacenters / internet exchanges.

                  1. 2

                    Very professional looking, tomasino! Well done!

                    1. 3

                      No way. It’s almost like having micro-OSs which are black boxes is bad for security or something…

                      1. 3

                        Especially when it takes only one line to import someone else’s micro-OS as a base without needing to know anything about it or what is on it.

                        1. 3

                          What could possibly go wrong?

                      1. 1

                        I’ve always been fascinated by assembly languages but have never come across a decent tutorial before. As this is part of a university course it should be quite good. Hopefully it’ll shed some light on the process of programming in amd64 assembly, even though I have zero plans of becoming fluent.

                        1. 2

                          Haha, basically how I feel

                            1. 2

                              Oh man, I haven’t seen this in years

                              1. 1

                                From TFA:

                                “The most notable new features are several new shell variables: BASH_ARGV0, EPOCHSECONDS, and EPOCHREALTIME. The history' builtin can remove ranges of history entries and understands negative arguments as offsets from the end of the history list. There is an option to allow local variables to inherit the value of a variable with the same name at a preceding scope. There is a new shell option that, when enabled, causes the shell to attempt to expand associative array subscripts only once (this is an issue when they are used in arithmetic expressions). The globasciiranges’ shell option is now enabled by default; it can be set to off by default at configuration time.”

                                Nifty!

                                1. 2

                                  When I used slack at work this would bug the shit out of me. Like, I’m working, ask the damn question already.

                                  1. 2

                                    it’s worth noting it’s winblows only

                                    1. 1

                                      I didn’t notice that :-( Debo’d from lobste.rs

                                    1. 1

                                      Interesting concept. Seems to be a response to the hyper-consumerism as encouraged by post-industrial capitalism.

                                      1. 2

                                        I like this concept, particularly in the context of technology. Technology can so easily feed impatience and lead to people undervalue those around them. But it can also support connections between people in ways that increase empathy and appreciation. We have to very consciously decide how we want to use technology – or it will be imposed on us against our best interests.

                                        I love hack - my only issue was that O and 0 are not very distinguishable, though it makes l / 1 / I easy to differentiate from each other. The O/0 issue prompted me to move to inconsolata.
