About once a year, somebody asks why OpenBSD doesn’t support transparent huge pages. Because it’s insanely complicated and can only lead to bugs seems like a good answer. :)
Kind of off topic: what’s with the crazy DD.MM.YY date format?
sigh It’s the traditional US order to write those fields in. Abbreviating years to two digits was common until the year 2000. Really it’s not a great idea to normalize two-digit years because it will make a lot of engineering work at the turn of every century…
Edit: Wait, I got that backwards. DD.MM is the European order. But regardless, ISO-8601 or go home.
Agree 100%, ISO8601 4 lyfe.
The US ordering is bonkers. ISO is YYYY-MM-DD, European (well, German, mostly) is DD.MM.YYYY. So far, big vs little endian.
But wtf is MM/DD/YYYY? Oh, it’s a numeric representation of the English idiom “December 1, 2017”? I guess we can call that middle-endian…
