I'm not new to the Fediverse, just moving my account from mastodon.technology to masto.rootdc.xyz. I like tech stuff, programming (when I'm allowed to do it). The current language I'm getting into is #kotlin. Also, I want to do some stuff in #rust.
Also, I just turfed my spare laptop running Pop_OS. So I gotta go rebuild that. Probably going back to straight Ubuntu.
Finally took the time last night to get Total Replay installed on my Apple IIe / Microdrive Turbo.
I looked for a tutorial, but didn't find find one right away, so I basically decided to fool around with Ciderpress and the Compact flash from the Microdrive until i figured it out.
It wasn't difficult once I got my head into it and worked through it.
Now I have a second partition on my IIe with 200+ games ready to go at a moment's notice.
I can't speak for the rest of the @linuxjournal archive, but I own the decade+ worth of articles I wrote. A lot of them are just as relevant today (I refer to them myself quite often). Would anyone be interested in some kind of "Best of Hack and /" polished and updated compilation?
From Bryan Cantrill's InfoQ podcast on Rust:
"I think it is a mistake to allow developers to develop code they do not understand."
He was talking about type safety, but my mind went immediately to dependency injection and aspects.
