That mysterious buffalo-potato connection.

Somebody just sent me this in email.

I'm a tiny bit worried that this article may not really be satire.
Systemd is the best example of Suck. There is a menace which is spreading like a disease throughout the Linux world, it is called systemd. Short Historical Summary. Systemd is a replacement for the standard init command, which normally runs as process id 1 on initialisation of a UNIX bootup.

Why write an article when you can express your opinion far more eloquently in Perl?

EcoMobility Festival.

A year or two ago the Tour de France passed through London, and on that occasion a busy road through Leyton, East London was closed to traffic for much of an afternoon. I recall the experience vividly. The broad street which normally carries four lanes of traffic was quiet enough for people on either kerb to hold conversations across the road without shouting. Kids played football on the road. The feeling of peace was pervasive and infectious.

Barring motorised vehicles even for a few hours drops the barriers to social interaction. We can detect the mood of a perfect stranger when we are able to tell whether they're breathing heavily or talking. You can say "hello" and be sure you'll be heard and will probably get a response.

We seldom talk about the very high social cost of motor vehicles. Perhaps this is because we are not generally aware, or perhaps we are no longer confident we'll be heard over the constant din of the traffic.
Something surprising happened when Haenggung-dong gave its streets over to pedestrians.

Dragonfly BSD  - 
 
Dragonfly BSD discussion.

Somebody asked if anyone was using Dragonfly. As an old Amiga fan I recall hearing that it was founded by former Amiga developer Matthew Dillon who had a falling out with other FreeBSD commiters about how to implement SMP (he favoured Amiga-style message-passing, they took away guys commit bit).

This thread is a bit frustrating because I don't think it really goes into much depth. It's worth your attention if you're at all interested in Dragonfly, though.

This impressive demo runs on a IBM PC 5150 from 1981. In CGA!

+Nikolai Kondrashov​ posted this on a thread in a retro computing community. I nearly died laughing to see all those Amiga tricks running on a much less capable machine, but I had to turn the volume down because the scope for sound generation on a 1981 IBM PC is terrible. It's very, very impressive given the limitations of the hardware. It's a witness to the talent of these programmers.
