looking for rails devs
Are there any Ruby on Rails devs around who are looking for a job in the UK? (Anywhere in the UK; don't need to be near an office if you're okay working remotely.) Looking for someone to help out with a line of business app that's mostly Rails as an API for a React app (looking for help with both).
(Boosts welcome, I should probably add #getfedihired.)
@Leaf Are there any strong arguments against adopting UTS #31 ("Identifier and Pattern Syntax") in the next version of C (C23)? Talking with someone who is apparently discussing the proposal tomorrow, and I recall you had Opinions about emoji in identifiers (which that would seem to preclude).
@PINE64 Incidentally, a number of colleagues are big fans of the "extremely noodly" USB C cables for the Pinecil. I think one of the monthly updates indicated you had them custom made, but is there a name for cables like that or in general cables that are so flexible?
In particular, someone mentioned they once got an Ethernet cable like that in a box with a device, but wants a bunch more and hasn't been able to track any down.
@djsundog If I were desirous of a bunch of ska or otherwise horn-heavy covers of popular songs, is there a particular direction you might point me?
@Leaf Typographical question I assume you'll be able to answer off the top of your head: if I'm putting section numbers inline before a section heading, what's the appropriate amount of space to use to separate them?
Every [Saturday] morning I wake up and open palm slam a search into the browser. It's me checking to see if IBM has any updates on LTO 9 drives.
(They do not. Their website says "1H 2021", but everyone else says "fall" or "September". And despite there being two manufacturers of LTO *tape*, IBM is now the only manufacturer of *drives*.)
There's something just weird about a (nominally) $150 textbook that has clearly been printed on demand on an inkjet printer. I get that roughly none of the value is in the physical object, *and yet*.
(It would also be nice to get a discount on the second edition, but I get the feeling that's not really a thing either.)
Sunset, nearly. (CC @nightpool)
KVM on old hardware: significantly faster than pure qemu on newer hardware. No real surprise. Would be nice to figure out why virt-manager doesn't think there's KVM on my desktop, however.
