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 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!

Hi I'm Wally. I've been around for a little while but mostly just lurking, and still in the IRC. I finally joined up because this isn't twitter and I want to feel more accountable for doing things, like working on tools and finishing projects. I like C, Python and Linux.

The water we use in our households is about 98 gallons a day.

The industrial goods we use -- paper, cotton, clothes -- that’s about another 44 gallons a day.

Water used to produce the food (and drinks) in the average U.S. meat-and-cheese heavy diet: 1,000 gallons per person per day

And yet every single government-produced "water conservation tips for the public" fails to mention the effect of our dietary choices, instead shaming us for running the water while we brush our teeth.

@lordbowlich Oh man. I was thinking of picking up a Tolkien book again. It’s been 15 years for me as well since I read them. And a decade since I’ve watched any of the movies... Gonna be good!
