We should stop blaming boomers for everything: they're much less likely to go abroad period. And much less likely to fly.

Well-educated yuppies are the most likely to fly, they fly most frequently, and even though the top flyers only comprise 8% of the population, they make about 40% of the passenger miles. (2/3)

I read this yesterday and it stirred up so many thoughts.

Making good progress on Unja, a template engine for C based on Liquid (Ruby) & Jinja (Python).

@curtismchale Hope you can still go (and stay safe), with COVID-19 spreading so rapidly.

What better time to get my hands on an Arduino kit? Hopefully it has all the things I need as I’m not sure whether I can order anything else in a few days.

@ceejbot Jenga (offline). Just played it with my 2.5yo for her first time and she was much better at it than me already!

We're thrilled to announce the official release of GNOME 3.36 "Gresik". This version contains 6 months of work by the GNOME community and includes many improvements, performance enhancements, and new features. Please see the link below for more info:

@defries Yes. On an el-cheapo VPS (at PCExtreme, a local company here).

@ricardobalk Moet statisch kunnen toch? Met Hugo, Jekyll, Zola oid...

@curtismchale Haha well... But maybe at least compiled or running through a VM? PHP 8’s JIT will surely help!

Managed to bring it down to ~1.7 seconds because of this comment in CPython's source explaining the performance gain for using computed GOTO's (vs a big ol' switch statement).

Finished compilerbook.com in which you turn your tree-walking interpreter (book 1) into a compiler + VM. Monkey-C now does fibonacci(35) in ~3 seconds!

Highly recommend these two books. Follow along in another language for double the fun!
