David Miller bought a Google Pixel machine and installed Debian on it. He's had some some success and shared the code changes required.
Ok I added a howto document to my chromebook pixel driver repo that anyone should be able to use to replicate my install.  Unlike what the Google guys have posted it shows you exactly how to get Linux installed natively onto the SSD.  And also, unlike what the Google guys have posted, it shows you how to get the touchpad and touchscreen fully working in that install.  To say that I am disappointed with how Google has facilitated this so far would be an understatement.  They owe me.

Here's a link to an external copy of that doc on the web.

Unsure whether to be disappointed Apple are taking their users for another ride down the Come In Sucker slide, or impressed by the tiny computer:

John Regher has been doing interesting practical work detecting integer overflow and undefined behaviour usage in C. In this post, he takes his tool for a run over OCaml and then building Coq (as a way to test the OCaml build). Very much work in progress, but interesting to see.

Was reviewing a personal Haskell project I last worked on about a year ago and this showed up: I use unfoldr a lot more than most code I see around me. Rather than an outer func that sets up an inner recursive call, I tend to reach for unfoldr for the outer one. My brain just works that way: foldr/unfoldr come naturally.

Code is basically equivalent, but the shape of mine isn't the way others do it. I'm probably doing more packing of Just instances than I need to in the long run, too. Something I should think about.

Dear LazyWeb: any positive recommendations from JSON parsing libraries in C or C++? There seem to be a few choices; not sure if any stands out from the crowd.

Pretty good ansible talk. Covers all of the basics and some more advanced bits.

The work +Paul Gestwicki is doing implementing agile methods with students building games has been great reading over the years. Below is his most recent piece. Outside of the educational ideas, I'm finding food for thought for my management skills in general.
