A moment of silence for my HP 32SII RPN Scientific calculator. I got it in 1989 and its keyboard stopped working today. It was a good calc

And your post reminds me to check mine, mostly I grab the 48 from the desk drawer but the 32 should really be checked.

I don't see how reproducible builds will fix this but expect I am missing something. My understanding is that to create a reproducible build you are already telling the person wanting to make one all the things that are required: compiler, environment variables, clock settings, etc.  So if the crap is in theire, then the reproducible build documentation is going to say 'you need this compiler' which is just going to replicate down the problem.

If I change out the compiler, the settings etc.. then I am not going to be able to reproduce the build. If the problem is already in the build chain, then I am not going to find it, just keep it going ala the Thompson attack.

So I expect i am missing something obvious.

+Jan Wildeboer We could do this in Fedora without a ton of trouble (one of my guys figured out how to do it a while back). It will be slightly more difficult with other things as you need every build every available, even things not actually shipped.

Subjectively this sounds quite plausible from the many 'groups' I have dealt with. However I would like to see the real results of this tested and published.
Notes on the book “Art & Fear” by David Bayles & Ted Orland. Art & Fear is “a book about making art”. It covers the long term strategies that the authors have seen in successful artists. The things that I learned from this book fell into three categories: Methodical dedication to your art is the ...

Ouch.. yes. I expect that the other team just needed to make a pot even if it was a 1 lb one... but maybe they were thinking they needed to do 50 lbs too. That would be my first question before handing in my "leaving your class because you are insane" slip.

"All a parent wants–really needs–is a child that is capable of happiness and love. We get confused for a while and think that the things we imagine bringing us happiness will bring our children happiness, but it doesn’t work that way. You have to stop raising your fantasy baby and start raising the child you have. I just had to give up my fantasy baby a little sooner than the parent of a typically developing child. His happiness doesn’t look like my happiness, but it doesn’t have to. He’s his own person." --- Marziah [THANKYOU]
Kennedy still thinks vaccines cause autism. He's also managed to make some pretty offensive remarks about autism just in time for "Autism Awareness Month."
