That's some quality travel writing, there:

Ahh yes, the good old Javascript Way - silently discard data when something goes wrong:

    node> new Buffer(String.fromCharCode(256), 'ascii')
    <Buffer 20>

I've been trying lately to see if I could get a minimal +elementary desktop working under the #nix package manager (http://nixos.org/). It's not ready for merging yet (hacks ahoy, and plenty of missing stuff), but it's looking pretty good.

I probably should have spent the time updating my actual (fedora) box, but that's no fun!

Cool, I didn't realise the cap'n proto guy was also working on sandstorm.io. The capability stuff in this release sounds intriguing.
 
Just released Cap'n Proto 0.5! It has generics. Also, Visual C++ is finally supported. And Java, and C#.

(Cap'n Proto, if you aren't familiar, is my serialization protocol and RPC system. The serialization is similar in design to Protocol Buffers (or a binary JSON with strict typing), but infinity times faster (literally). The RPC system is a distributed object-capability protocol based on CapTP, originating from the E distributed programming language.)
News. Cap'n Proto 0.5: Generics, Visual C++, Java, C#, Sandstorm.io. kentonv · Gittip on 15 Dec 2014. Today we're releasing Cap'n Proto 0.5. We've added lots of goodies! Finally: Visual Studio. Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 (currently in “preview”) finally supports enough C++11 to get Cap'n Proto ...

I didn't actually realize until the recent John Oliver clip that AU was the first country to introduce tobacco plain packaging laws. Reading up, I was amused by this unintentional offence to the olive industry:

"Government research found that olive green was the least attractive colour, particularly for young people. After concerns were expressed over the naming of the colour by the Australian Olive Association, the name was changed to drab dark brown."

> RIPA was introduced by the Labour government in 2000 to catch terrorists and prevent serious crime. However, in recent years it has been used for minor offences such as littering and making sure parents are sending their children to school.

Of course it has.

Pretty pleased with my ad-hoc live memory usage grapher:

https://github.com/gfxmonk/piep/wiki#live-memory-usage-graph-for-a-single-process

As cool as this is, does anyone know a better-suited tool? I just want to show a live graph of the memory usage of a single linux process over time. Most of these kinds of tools require stupidly complex setup, since they're designed for remote server monitoring.

Ugh. gnome-settings-daemon in fedora 21 stole a shellshape keybinding (super+p). For bonus points they hardcoded it (unlike all other gnome shortcuts, it can't be changed via dconf) and they won't accept a trivial patch to make it configurable[0]. Time to pick a worse shortcut for shellshape :/

Had long switched Synapse to Super-o for the same reason. Even though I'm with XMonad already, Super-o somehow caught on.

So Presto's streaming TV has just launched, confusingly described as a "Netflix killer" despite there being no such thing in this country to even kill.

For $10 a month I can get access to exactly one show that I'm interested in, and even that's 2 years behind (The Newsroom - it has season 1, but season 3 has already finished in the US). Not a promising start...
