acme reinvented. it's right about time for the concept to reappear too. mean-time-between reinvention in compsci is still less than 15 years.

+StelarCF We would be using timber wheels or stone wheels instead of Bridgestone ones if others applied this rule.

One more reason to say "no" to those asking for warnings in Go. The following is from a HN discussion on Apple's TLS bug:

"A quick test shows neither -Wall nor -Wextra report anything on
either gcc or clang. However, clang's -Weverything does complain (it
implies -Wunreachable-code)."

"codified" in the FAQ.  Nice one :) 

Looking more carefully at the specs, there's no Warnings section (unlike other languages), hence no need for warnings in the compiler. 

Elegant.

Videos from FOSDEM are starting to become available. The room which held the majority of the Go talks does not have videos yet, but if they upload those they should appear here:

http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/fosdem//2014/K4601/

Meanwhile, here are a few talks held in other rooms. This one specifically discusses Go:

Scientific GPU Computing with Google's Go:
http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/fosdem//2014/AW1126/Saturday/Scientific_GPU_Computing_with_Googles_Go_Language.webm

And these two talk about services implemented in Go:

Service Orchestration in the Cloud with Juju:
http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/fosdem//2014/H1309_Van_Rijn/Saturday/Service_orchestration_in_the_cloud_with_Juju.webm

Introduction to Docker:

"Service Orchestration in the Cloud with Juju:"  No Sound ? Is it my computer or this video?

Suppose you need a C++ program to calculate the distance between two points.

I had a lovely reminder why I left new mexico today. Had to deal a bit with fidelity, who informed me that LANL has not set my status to "not working here for at least 5 years" yet. Then spoke with a lovely girl who took half an hour to record my address. Back to fidelity, there were 3 errors in the meticulously spelled address.

"I'm sorry sir, it will be a 10 day freeze on your account if we update your address from here"

Fuck that shit. The US is just about equal to communist Bulge-area in terms of bureaucracy at all levels.

from the "never thought I'd read this" department:

"Consider migrating to *BSD, Plan 9 or something similar, if things get
really out of hand."

+Charles Forsyth yes, exactly.  and unfortunately, doubling-up on disadvantages seems too common.  it would not surprise me for someone to see this issue and suggest creating a new capability system just for systemd.

Go is just a pleasure to work with on so many levels! This long weekend I participated in a small hacking challenge @ http://h11e.com: find the smallest SHA512 hash from any string shorter than 64 characters (they didn't specify whether unicode, so I assumed ascii printable).

I wrote a small go program, parallelized it and set it going on a few of my computers: http://play.golang.org/p/LVvPBdf-Wc

I came close to getting on the board early on, when 4 starting bytes of zeroes would've gotten you the top, but 1 trillion hashes later, I have still not found a sha512 with 5 leading zero bytes. That's not what's interesting though: up until this morning one of my dual-core machines was churning 1.4 million hashes/second. When I updated the (month-old) Go distribution to tip the count jumped to 1.7 million hashes/second.

I delight in realizing efficiencies :)

"The entire nature of the Go language is documented. Exhaustively. It is perhaps the most true specimen of a post-internet computer programming language. It was birthed on the web in the wide open, the specs, the docs, the compiler and the library are all there for you to investigate. How is it then, that this number [...], managed to understand their own needs so poorly that they devoted a big chunk of time to learning and hacking on Golang, only to find that the language was missing some crucial feature that they can’t do without?"
