    Being able to display graphical content in a terminal window opens up all sorts of interesting possibilities (eg, being able to display graphical content within a terminal Emacs session). Unfortunately the graphical extensions added by iTerm2, Kitty, etc. don’t (yet) seem to be compatible with one another.

      Lol, was just looking for something like this yesterday, to write my own but implementijg Forth. It’s a shame the original PICO-8 is proprietary. Thanks for sharing.

        The brokenness, however, is not a reason to simply throw up our hands and say “we can’t accurately assess anyone

        No one said that.The people throwing up their hands are the commenters here. The article is the product of a lot of hard work and study into how we can make the education system, including assessments, more effective. It doesn’t even say assessment is broken, it says the top grades should be accessible to everyone and suggests some relatively minor modifications. Which to me is a no-brainer and I can’t understand why people got upset about it.

        Also the original source for the sheep and the goats thing, basically God decided to judge everyone and he likes sheep better than goats. Quite an appropriate analogy really.

          I thought you edited this like “yeah that’s 100% chrome”

            true, but it’s just additional, with an easy way to verify & create it

              In what kind of setting do two developers have to produce the exact same thing at the same time, without talking to eachother about it? And is it always the case that developer A produces something that’s objectively 10x better than developer B, or are the roles sometimes reversed. For instance, does it depend on experience in a certain niche?

                A lot of us really like the terminal and the infrastructure around it such as Tmux.

                  I had to read your comment before realizing that eliminating memory writes is not the only possible interpretation ;)

                    What unholy beast is that. I mean. Seriously. Wtf is that?

                      I hope you reconsider and try out matrix again in the future.

                      Another thing that I forgot about mattermost and rocket.chat. They are open core, just like gitlab. Some features require paying. While with synapse/element (server/client, matrix is just a protocol) (and e.g. redhat) you pay for hosting & support, not features.

                        I’m sure once the performance issues are addressed the complaints about performance issues will subside.

                          Electron has been around since 2013 and still, typing in Slack still has a noticeable latency (that drives me crazy). I also still have to restart it once a day or so, to avoid that it becomes more and more laggy.

                          In the meanwhile, ripcord was developed by a single indie developer in Qt. Has most of Slack’s functionality, only uses a fraction of the memory, and is lightning fast. Oh, and it is multi-platform.

                          People (not you) claim that it is only possible to write cross-platform applications in Electron. This is nothing further from the truth, people have been writing cross-platforms apps in Qt literally for decades. (And it’s not hard either.)

                            Given the same task, two developers often come up with solutions that differ in an order of magnitude in size, complexity, dependency count and resource consumption.

                            I have witnessed that over and over.

                              I have always thought of RMS as a compass. It’s good to know where north is even if you wanna go south.

                                dropbox sync engineer here :)

                                we regularly see bitflips on consumer machines. for example, the desktop client’s sync engine has a metadata consistency checker that compares the client’s view of the filesystem to the remote filesystem at a snapshot, and we report any discrepancies up to the server. any report should indicate a bug in our protocol to be fixed.

                                but… we do have to bucket out differences in metadata that are separated by one or two bitflips. it’s not a huge number but it shows up when you’re trying to have zero inconsistencies over many 10s of millions of machines.

                                  A couple of suggestions 1, it isn’t obvious that https://chauhankiran.github.io/w.html is the index for your blog so I couldn’t see where Chapter 0..3 were. It would be good if you have a link to the index (and it might be better to have a tag so that I can only look at your GTK book chapters

                                    To be fair, I don’t know ! I pointed out the meaning of deduplication because I worked on such tool a few month back, and was expecting a similar topic here.

                                    If I had to name what you did I’d say “remove duplicates” ? But you’d loose the pun with the periscope then 😉

                                      I’m sure performance issues will be addressed in time.

                                        Taking several years Of non Linux support to finally ship an electron app is saddening…

                                          Absolutely not a fan of the name. Too Linux-centric.

                                          Low cost PLC running open source PLC porgramming languages

                                          A PLC implemented on top of Linux would be a comically bloated and unreliable PLC implementation.

                                          industrial-grade

                                          There’s nothing industrial-grade about Linux. It’s quite an irresponsible statement. I hope nobody gets killed in some factory due to a Linux crash on one of these boards.
