Really interesting move by IBM to make the OpenPower architecture royalty-free.
Yet another example IMO of why centrists shouldn’t lead.
This video by Engadget is great and it’s true we knew nothing about mfg at the beginning of this journey. We’ve been fortunate to have very experienced people guiding us along.
@alex It's not correct to say that Moa has dropped support for spinster. I am however unhappy that spinster users are using Moa.
I will note that if you look at the TOS of the #spinster instance it's worded very carefully to not disallow anti-trans content.
There has been a large influx of new Moa users flocking to the #spinster (GAB) instance. I get an email everytime someone signs up with links to their twitter and masto accounts so I've been parusing them. I gotta say, most, but not all, of the twitter accounts have, in my non-expert opinion, anti-trans messages. I'm thinking about shutting down Moa because server blocks are a losing game and I don't have time to make improvements to it.
I really liked Testament in high school and kind of lost track of them after The Ritual. Today I learned that they released The Gathering in '99 with Dave fucking Lombardo on drums and it's great! Is it the best non-Scandinavian metal album of the late 90s?
There are some great articles here on the design and implementation of an ECS written in C. It helped answer some questions I was having like "should and entity allow more than one instance of the same component?".
Introducing the Playdate Gaming System https://kottke.org/19/05/introducing-the-playdate-gaming-system
There's a good photo of one of our playdate test benches in this Oregonian article. The cart covered in devices is a copy of our "runin" station at the factory. We plug lots of devices in and run them a couple of hours monitoring the battery drain and other things.
playdate has been hiding in plain site for years!
