As a side, helpful note, you can buy the book on hardcover or paperback formats too. Amazon has it in both formats. The book might be available from other sources too, not just from Amazon—though I haven’t checked.
As poorly written as the response was, I agree. The reason I share it and found the eyele interesting was because of the aspect of the history of the two languages why they were developed and how they have different goals.
@fastidious Yeah this is terrible news. Why isn’t Microsoft being sued for anti-trust here? 🤔
@prologic you are joking, right? Tell me you are jesting. I am kind of worried to see a twt from you with zero Emoji. Please, tell me you are (a laughing face with tears Emoji as a reply will suffice).
@eaplmx Morning ☕️x1
@servusdei Thank you, even thou they are not made using fractal math 🤓
@homer Looks like the court case was won – HTML is safe. But yeah oh boy indeed 🤦♂️
@lyse is not kidding. Bartosz almost writes with an ELI5 approach. The choice of font (Lato), the choice of colours, the line height, the interactive illustrations, as @lyse points out, the site’s design, they all help conveying the message clearly, and with excellent taste to boot. But don’t stop at this article. He has more equally amazing. A heads up, JS is required. But, oh, so worth it!
What it boils down to for me is this:
I am a vision impaired (legally blind) person.
I wanted to pay good money for DRM-free version of the authors book.
He said no, that’s his right.
This is borderline discrimination.
wow nice fractals

Now @fastidious dug up this fucking fantastic article on the Global Positioning System. Holy shit my friends, this is the mooooooooooost awesome explanation on GPS I’ve ever come across. Forget about everything you’re about to do today, and take some time to read and enjoy the brilliant illustrations of said article instead. It will really, really, really, really, really blow your mind. If you can’t tell already, I’m totally amazed. And I’m not even half way through yet. It’s sooo cool on so many levels. There’s heaps of brilliant things to discover. Explore yourself and enjoy, you won’t regret it, I will promise you. Now, stop looking at my trash I publish and have a read by this true genius instead! https://ciechanow.ski/gps/

@xavavu now tell us the truth. Did you ever expected to get this much attention out of a single tag line? Isn’t it amazing how simple things often catches someone attention, and then spawn a life of their own? For what is worth, your scarf lives on! And this will be my last twt relating to this scarf. Maybe.
@prologic Never took a pic. Ended up giving it to someone who lived in a colder place. Turns out I didn’t have much use for it in Southern California.
@eaplmx Hahaha, indeed. :-D
@fastidious Exactly, that’s been also my “yarn” usage I think.
@prologic I did know. Just hadn’t gotten around to it. Done. 😁
@fastidious Hehe! ;-) Well, the result looked promising indeed, that also instantly hooked me in the beginning. However, scrolling was quite laggy I have to say. The “let me render one giant string” referes the the
View() string method, that controls how the UI looks like. For my taste that’s not the way I want to build TUI applications. I prefer the, hm, not sure, what’s it really called, so let’s call it “widget based rendering” where I declare my layout by nesting the available widgets so they take care of themselves.
@movq simple, safe and HTTP(S) in the same sentence looks unbelievable to me 😁

@lyse I agree about yarn, and its usage for both, single and conversation. I rather keep
twt for a singular entry, and
yarn for a collection of twts on a related topic (aka conversation).
So 90s! Nice memory…
If you like Marketing, look for the book ‘The end of publicity as we know it’ (2000, I think), it talks about that campaign.
@prologic So in my opinion it’s very problematic that “yarn” names both a “single twt” and a whole “twt conversation”. That’s not very helpful to distinguish between both.
Alright, this one appears to be better:
It’s still much heavier than I was hoping for, but I can’t spot any transitive dependencies in there which are complete nonsense.
The sad truth is, HTTP is heavy. All this stuff has to be implemented somehow, if you want to be compliant. And TLS has to be implemented as well. 😮💨
@darch Haha, thanks! Now I know why I was wondering a bit when reading the “Post Box”. But I couldn’t tell why it felt weird up until you posted the nice red box.
@prologic Yeah, cool. I prefer my log cabin in the woods, though. ;-) At first I thought, that sounds like German English. But they’re probably Swedes. Norah said she works in Switzerland every now and then, so she still might be of German-speaking origin.
@fastidious Hmm, that might be a different version. There has been a remake for the US market. I’ve never seen that one, it’s also a different story. 🤔
@lyse I completely agree. The “response” came across as something someone wanted to quickly write to post it somewhere for those 15 minutes of fame. The substance is on the original article.
@eaplmx your new avatar reminds me of the Chihuahua dog from the early 1990’s Taco Bell advertisements, “Yo quiero Taco Bell”. Warning, a very low rendering quality YouTube video. Yet, funny and still worth seeing. 😂
The dependency hell is one major pain which got me again today. I wanted to find out why or how a certain dependency got pulled in, so I parsed the
go mod graph output and filtered for just that dependency branch in question. Turns out, that there are many branches and all but one don’t even track back to the main software itself. What the hell? Where are the other dependencies (sometimes only differing in version) coming from? It doesn’t make any sense to me at all. They look like they got pulled out of thin air. Need to research further tomorrow.
@movq interesting, never—until now—heard of it, but that’s not unusual. I checked and it came to the US last year, under the name “The Killing” and it is on Amazon Prime, to which I happen to subscribe. Adding it to my list, thanks!
I’ll have a nice bowl of salad now and go watch another episode of Forbrydelsen 👌 📺
@fastidious 😩 I’m not into gaming anymore, but don’t they already have enough power … Yeah, yeah, I know the answer to that question.
It has the potential to impact negatively console players, that is PlayStation users. Since Microsoft has its own console, I am foreseeing current Blizzard games on PS will become ‘second class citizens’, and may eventually disappear. As someone who has played Blizzard games for 21 years, this is the end of an era.
@eaplmx well, the consolation for me is this (and I might sound a bit selfish next): I don’t manage Microsoft Windows servers, someone else’s does. So, though impacted, it is not directly my problem. LOL. Also, Friday is one day closer already. Yeehaw!
Starting my day over here… Meetings with old acquaintances, classes, working on Image processing and going with my wife to the supermarket if you wonder.
Seems like a fun day #letsSee
@fastidious good luck!… Usually Mondays for me are the rollercoaster of everything not done by the weekend and pushing people to work again, so…
If this has an impact on ad blocking—and my quick read of it is kind of telling me it does—this has to be very worrisome to all of us. The lawsuit seeks to “dictate that the HTML language used to render a website page should be protected under copyright law—effectively making it illegal for any technology or any consumer to alter a website page appearance.” Oh boy.
@fastidious xD Mientras yo
Microsoft is to acquire Activision Blizzard. I understand Blizzard had/has problems of their own, but this is an absolute horrible news for gamers everywhere. Like, the worse nightmare. It will give Microsoft a monopoly status on gaming.
“Fun” day at work today. It seems a recent critical update to Microsoft Windows servers (physical and virtual) is causing a few of our AD controllers to be on a boot loop. That, of course, is affecting many other services. Yup, one of those Mondays. Oh, wait, it is Tuesday already!

and what I’m explaining is that giving you a product protecting the interests of the consumer ‘might’ go against the interests of the producer (that usually is money)
In some other regions, money is an issue. I don’t see it here.
@eaplmx it is not the money @prologic is concerned about, it is the fact that to get a book with DRM you need to use a service provided by a company, which he considers “privacy eroding garbage”. He doesn’t have a problem spending money. He wants to spend it; he just wants a PDF for his money. That, sadly, isn’t an option.
@thecanine I understand, but I do not go online looking for pirated books (nor software), and I doubt @prologic would doubting whether or not this that you described happened. Your twt re-affirmed my previous reply.
