This is what engineers do when they get bored out of programming... 🙂

@glx @fsf yeah.. and deal with all the typesetting problems myself. I am sad to hear that. Books simply should not be distributed in PDF format. That is not a format for books.

@fsf do you release book in the epub format? if not, what is the best way to read the book on mobile phone?

@mdhughes True. All the code is crappy from some point of view. I don't care. Still, Linux is not OS, so your joke is not joke.

@mdhughes Linux is the kernel. I am not pretending it is OS.

@craigmaloney Thanks goes to you for such an awesome book :)

I really enjoyed the "Mediocre Programmer" by @craigmaloney. The main message is clear -- programmers are people, too.

Two notes for fellow readers. First, if 10 minutes containers (Pomodoro technique) does not work for you, do not panic. I am the guy who hates being interrupted when I am in the flow, even by a rest-timer.

Second, I am glad Zen To Done (ZTD) is mentioned, but ZTD is more than focused containers. Collect, Process, Plan, and Do is usable minimum of the habits.

@dorkbutt Similar to hash functions, translation of the source code into an executable binary is one way. You can guess the structure of the source code somehow (reverse engineering) from a binary, but it is impossible to get original variable names or comments, for example.

I just discovered an easter egg in @NLnetLabs@twitter.com @krillrpki@twitter.com 😆

i read a thing recently that blew my mind a little.
went something like:

people can imagine time travel to the past and one little act making massive differences in the timeline

but in their present they think even the greatest effort they can put in will not make any difference to the future

@feditips TL;DR at the end makes no sense. How I know there is "Too Long; Didn't Read" at the end without reading the post? Please, note that I read from up to bottom. You may put "Summary" or "Point" at the end, but please put "TL;DR" at the beginning. Thanks!

@AgreeableLandscape I have FP2 and the same problem. It is due to bad connectors IMO. Sometimes the camera malfunction completely.

So NVIDIA "released" their kernel driver as open source.

By which they mean, they moved most of it to firmware and made the open source driver call into it. There are almost 900 functions implemented in the 34MB firmware, give or take, from what I can see.

Broadcom vibes...
