When advertising collides with UX... Absolutely pathetic.

So, I used to be an Arch purist. And while I continue to agree it's better to do it yourself and will continue to use Arch myself, I would say that Antergos looks like a pretty damn solid distro.

I used to recommend people to start with Ubuntu because that's the only distro that usually work out of the box and has a graphical installer, Antergos just blew my mind. I'm definitely directing people to Antergos now. It's just rock solid and dead easy to install. I like it.

In my experience, the only one that worked out of the box is Fedora. All my hardware is detected, including my two graphic cards and 3 monitors.
I hadn't heard of Antergos, but it looks nice.

Annnnd RedHat is at it again, breaking their overcomplicated shit. libvirt is broken yet again. This time the daemon flat out doesn't start without any notice as to why. I have enough, and I just replaced that whole garbage daemon with a simple 10 line shell script that runs qemu directly.

The less RedHat stuff on my machine the better, and I now have 200MB more free space on my root partition as well for stuff that actually works.

Woo, I'm impressed with myself! My very first Android app is runs absolutely buttery smooth on my piece of shit Alcatel phone. Nice for an app that should have been a disaster!

Welp, I failed to build TWRP even after hours of messing around... The good news is that I have built and booted a kernel for my phone, so Android kernel hacking here I come!

+Douglas McMillan I am a pc/ laptop person. I am not fond of smart phones. Yes Samsung has been a asshat for sure. I have Verizon to boot. Thinking of trading it in for a nexus.

So, this is a javascript library that "Repeat the given string n times. Fastest implementation for repeating a string.".: https://www.npmjs.com/package/repeat-string

This is their implementation of it: https://github.com/jonschlinkert/repeat-string/blob/master/index.js#L41-L67

And this image shows how it compares if the native function is swapped to "return null;". That test is flawed in many, many ways.

And yes, I totally rebuilt node and v8 from scratch to edit the native implementation and test that.

The biggest problem with javascript is the lack of a good standard library. They add new stuff in ES7 like promise while you have to rely on npm for basic things like handling strings and dates properly.

Meanwhile in Clojurescript, you can do (apply str (repeat "some string"))
lazy seqs FTW

Super boring, but hey, baby steps are baby steps (in the hardware world)!

Story

The asshole coworker you unfortunately need.
Introduction
I love computers and electronics. I could sit in front of a computer all day long! I know bits of everything I can get my hand on, which is pretty helpful in programming to have a general idea of what the hell is going on between the program I wrote and the hardware it's running on. People seems to think I work well although there's always room for improvement.

I'm a bit shy but I like meeting new people and talking.  I like to keep it simple and straightforward. If I have something to say believe be you will know about it.

Also, I'm such a faggot ~
Bragging rights
I didn't go to school for any of the tasks I do for work. Such a waste of time.
