Now I'm fascinated. I'm trying to weasel Rust into my workplace and slowly getting there, but the major work is in C++, but as "more than C but still a limited subset and oh my god definitely not Boost".

Error handling in server code is a huge thing, and Joe's article makes explicit what I've been somewhat leaning towards in C++: I don't check for things like memory allocation failures, I just use the result and SIGSEVF on fail. Coz what can I do if I'm out of memory? But my code is full of "if !something() reportError else if !anotherThing() reportError... (and ... ... ... forever)". Dislike!
 
An interesting read on error handling.

The C++ FQA is well worth reading too.

Carcassone on my phone with the new "double tileset" is kinda fun. AI doesn't cope too well, still falls into the trap of merging all the farms. Which worked out particularly poorly for them in this game.

We just had a 3 day weekend so I joined a tour organised by my local bike shop. 60kms a day through really nice countryside on the Hawesbury River (near Sydney, Australia). I had a very relaxing weekend.

Wow, your bike shop does touring!? That's so cool!

This is why I hated being taught to play the piano. Trying to learn how musical pitch works from a piano is like teaching someone to read from the graffiti drunks leave in toilets. Sure, it's possible, by why would you put anyone through that?
Technically speaking, pianos tuned to coventional 12-tone equal temperament aren’t actually in perfect tune. A new video from MinutePhysics explains the math behind this musical oddity, and why in the case of pianos, close enough is good enough.

Fascinating study on the stress and unhappiness of commuting motorists. Interesting to think about cycling in terms of reliability (it always takes about the same time) and stress (exercise is unstressful). Abstract excerpt:

We explore a complementary measure of congestion costs based on self-reported happiness. ...  we compute implied congestion costs that are several times larger than conventional estimates. Several factors, including the value of reliability and externalities on non-travelers, can reconcile our alternative estimates with the existing literature.

Can anyone suggest an online shop where I can buy a wide, 32H 406 rim? I split the 19mm wide Aeroheat on my touring bike running a 47mm Marathon Plus on it, and for touring I'd rather be able to run 4" tyres than save a few grams by running a narrow aero rim. It's going around a Rohloff, so 32H and I'm not seeing many rims like that around.

Also, does anyone know of a 406 tyre fatter than 2.4" that I can use on gravel roads? Since I'm touring on a two wheel and likely a tandem  it'll need to be rated to 80psi or more, and the best I've some up with is the Schwalbe Jumping Jack at 2.25" or a slick Fat Frank at 2.3" (yes, BMX tyres still use imperial units for some reason)

I know, but experience shows that hookworms are too narrow (they sink in) and 60psi fatties pinch flat under a load bike. I don't expect that to be an easy one to answer :)

22.4 is a bit narrow in my book, I'm kinda eyeing off the Velocity Cliffhanger at 25mm but it's not readily available online.

Long but worth reading. 

"Ask any academic about what he or she considers the most troubling aspect of today’s tertiary system and they’ll likely point to the demands posed by remedial students and all this entails in terms of workloads."

I can't imagine what I would do with if I got that switch...
You’d like to think products as critical as network infrastructure are rigorously tested before they hit the market. Not always! A few years ago, Cisco was forced to issue a warning because of a serious design flaw that’s so dumb I almost can’t believe it ever shipped.

I know, let's all vote on some other parliamentary issues.

Should refugees be allowed into Australia, or should we keep the overseas camps going? Should we declare war on Syria/the Caliphate/Iraq or wherever it is we're bombing this week? Should we keep negotiating to sign the TPP? Should we keep subsidising fossil fuel extraction? Should we try to reduce climate change?

For that matter, if we're going to have public votes on stuff, should we bother with elected representatives at all?
A popular vote, the cost of which is estimated at between $44m-$158m, is not needed because it is squarely within parliament’s power to legislate, report finds

I think a lot of elected representatives don't represent the interests of their constituents. On the other hand, if people vote on various issues, they need to be well-informed on the topics, rather than voting purely impulsively or emotionally. On the other other hand, our elected representatives should also be well-informed and vote based on that, rather than voting purely so they can get re-elected next time or to favour their bros.
