The facts about the Oregon wedding cake case.


Last week, Oregon ordered the owners of the infamous "Sweet Cakes by Melissa" bakery to pay damages to a lesbian couple they had discriminated against, and subsequently harassed — and conservative media, of course, got it all horribly wrong.

As an Oregonian, this couple shames me. I am sorry to the rest of the world.
We are welcoming people. Regardless of sexual preference.
The owners of this bakery are wrong.
They hide behind religion to disguise their hate.
That is not what we are. I am embarrassed at their behavior.

+Alessandro Ebersol true, but as you can upgrade to final from the bleeding edge, and bug report while doing so.

Everything you know about time is wrong.

Some of this is ridiculously extreme (a spaceship orbiting a black hole?) but it's a pretty useful checklist.
A couple of days ago I decided to write down some of the things I’ve learned about testing over the course of the last several years. In the course of enumerating the areas that benefit most from...

It's a handy checklist even without the links. Because the items were donated in batches on discussion forums, you have to follow his links to those discussions to read more detail.

The Rejected.

This is thought to be the first serious documentary film about homosexuality. It was produced by the Bay Area television station KQED in 1961. The technical quality of this print from the Library of Congress is patchy, but it's well worth viewing.

I totally agree with you although the two religious asshats commentators really emphasised the point about how otherwise good people can suffer moral blindness.

OpenBSD  - 
 
Could this be the start of moving native pf to SMP support?

Alexandr Nedvedicky of Oracle, who has praised OpenBSD's firewall and wants to migrate it into Solaris eventually to replace ipf, has sent in a massive hack which attempts to address pf's lack of SMP support. It's very early yet and there isn't anything usable, but maybe (as one person comments on the mailing list thread) it's time for optimists to get a big bowl of popcorn.

iptables, I find very confusing to use. Once took a look at ipfw, and found it better.

BSD Now 096: Lost Technology.

Although BSD Now is nominally in video log format, over time the textual content and the breadth of the links has graduated to the point where I often find them useful even if I don't have time to watch the podcast. This month's edition is essential reading for anybody who wants a good feel of what's happening in different BSDs. I'll be posting my favourite pieces to this community separately but there is much more detail at bsdnow.tv.

Wollongong, NSW, birthplace of the first port of Unix.

Here is an account of the heroic port of Unix v6 from PDP11 to Interdata (later called Perkin Elmer) 7/32 in the mid-1970s. Beware typos.

Darwin/OSX  - 
 
 
I've always thought of OS X as having a Mach heart, FreeBSD soul, wrapped in a pure Apple body with Cocoa, Aqua etc. As developers we obviously have a lot of options when writing applications for the platform. While it definitely depends on the job at hand that needs to get done, what API or layer do you find yourself primarily developing to? Note, I did not include Carbon in the poll as it implies legacy applications If you feel it should have been included, please let me know.
