    First, there’s no official client. The fact that it’s so easy to implement a client means there’s a Cambrian explosion going on, and the filtering die-back has not yet occurred. This might change in the medium future.

    as opposed to what official client for the web?

      the web at least has standards…

          no. I mean a real technical specification, not a first-draft quality half-baked pseudo-specification that calls itself feature complete.

              I guess you haven’t read where the document itself refers to itself as a pseudo-specification…

              Content is still valid as an ebook. :)

              Nostarch ebooks are DRMfree when you buy from their store if that’s a concern

              For some reason survey link won’t load for me (probably has to do with some stupid internet restrictions), otherwise I would do it for sure.

              I love curl so much.

                  Likewise, I’d not heard of teddit before I don’t think. Quite the lengthy post titles! :-)

                    I really like teddit (it’s lightweight), but I wish I could «connect» my reddit account to actually see subreddits I follow on my frontpage. Any way to import subscriptions from reddit?

                      No tag relevant to release or osdev so settled on software-development tag.

                      1. 2

                        There is now an osdev tag! ;)

                          thank you :)

                        We could do with a debugging tag.
                        Advice is GNU make specific, as a comment points out “If you’re using BSD make, you can just use ‘make -V SOURCE_FILES’.”

                                Perhaps it would’ve been better to post the announcement instead, title of the video is clickbaity

                                1. 2

                                  We need a general osdev tag or a plan9 specific one. I lumped it under UNIX as I couldn’t find anything relevant.

                                  1. 2

                                    I agree with you. Plan 9 is a popular topic around here, so it should have its own tag.

                                    On the topic of other improvements, maybe we should have some guidelines about putting the length of videos in the title, just as we do with the year of old content? I was interested in this video, but not “Watch an hour and 17 minute long video” interested–right now at least.

                                    But on the other hand, I watched this last year and it’s totally worth it.

                                        Has anyone here used Guile for anything? Do you like it? I feel like it’s probably cool, but I’ve never touched it.

                                          Not yet. My interest was via Guix. It’s an implementation of Scheme and intended as the scripting language of GNU eco-system.

                                          Currently reading through this, and enjoying it. I just thought I’d like to comment on these two lines before I forget:

                                          Plan 9 does follow the UNIX philosophy (much closer in fact then UNIX itself).

                                          The acme text editor is arguably the main user application for Plan 9, it doubles as the systems file manager, terminal, mail reader and more.

                                            1. 2

                                              I get it, acme isn’t really doing all these things. Arguably, the only thing acme really does is give you an interface for interacting with text, and since everything in Plan 9 is text, it becomes a powerful tool.

                                              But it’s still a funny juxtaposition to me.

                                            Nothing new, just thought the PDFs were done well so there’s a ToC for example.
