As much as I agree with the idea behind the license, I don't think it's
meant /for/ a license and is better suited as a CoC, as Eli has rightly
said.

But yes, the new trend of politicizing software is extremely bothersome,
especially because most of it tends to be relevant mostly in the United
States and people from other countries really couldn't care less. This
is not to say that the problems the US has don't exist -- but you don't
see $BIGTECH putting up banners for say, issues that India has or
Singapore has (despite the company having presence in those countries).

scdoc BSD make 5 months ago

From Anirudh Oppiliappan to ~sircmpwn/public-inbox

scdoc doesn't build on OpenBSD. Its Makefile appears to be incompatible
with BSD make:

    make: don't know how to make src/%.c (prerequisite of: .build/%.o)
    Stop in /home/icy/leet/scdoc

At least, that's what I think anyway.

Hard agree on ksh. I currently use it on OpenBSD! In fact, the reason I
switched was how sluggish bash was. The difference in speed is night and
day. I do miss some bashisms though...

aerc wouldn't build on OpenBSD, erroring out with:
    [..]/rand_openbsd.go:8:2: use of internal package internal/syscall/unix not allowed
An issue was raised upstream (https://github.com/ProtonMail/crypto/issues/49),
and fixed.

Re: Five days in a TTY 9 months ago

From Anirudh Oppiliappan to ~icyphox/x

I'm not a big fan of lisp and lispy languages -- so that rus out Guix.x.
I've tried LFS before, but mostly just for fun. Maintaining one would be
a chore, I'd imagine. I have yet to try Gentoo but from what I can tell,
it's KISS with a lot more choices for your base (init, libc, userland
etc.).

Thanks anyway. :)

For this precise reason, I've begun writing "Status update" posts. It's
a great way to track your progress through whatever you're doing, or
simply maintain a public journal of sorts. I generally split it into
three sections (loosely): current work, future work and misc. This also
gives me something to write when I'm short of ideas.

That said, very cool blogs so far gentlemen! I've added a lot of them
