@Sosthene sigh, personal threats are really the lowest of the low

but yes—take care and use Tor or a VPN if you run your node from home

@xarph fwiw command to clone them all :

curl 'api.github.com/users/historica' | grep -e 'clone_url*' | cut -d \" -f 4 | xargs -L1 git clone

Jason Scott just dumped the ZIL source code for every infocom game on github. Clone it before Activision's lawyers wake up. And now we see how long it takes for the internet to produce a compiler for a language that's been dead for 30+ years from a cache of production grade source code for said language.

Kendryte K210 / Maix Go memory map and boot sequence
did a little bit of reverse engineering again

this is running a small bare-metal C program compiled using the RISC-V gcc toolchain—would have preferred rust but that doesn't have a bsp for this chip yet

these (Sipeed Maix Go) are really great toys for playing around with computer vision and image processing on RISC-V !

here shown my favorite effect, real-time glyph mapping


@FreePietje interesting read !

TIL there is a Z-machine implementation (for the 80's Infocom text adventures) in Verilog that can be synthesized to FPGA/hardware

I like the exercise in removing abstraction/interpretation layers instead of adding them, in today's virtualization-on-virtualization world

I like how the WebAssembly WASI spec learned from CloudABI with regard to capability-based security for the file system interface, taking the principle of least authority to heart (hacks.mozilla.org/2019/03/stan)

oooh gdb has colors now (version 8.2.50), including syntax highlighting, this is pretty !
(also: it works on my SiFive Unleashed board after upgrading the kernel to 5.x)

Good news: Bitcoin Core moving forward with switch to bech32 receiving addresses by default for the 0.19 release, or optionally 0.20, depending on bech32 sending support in other programs/services.

there's a funding initiative by Square for Bitcoin Core devs, apparently? twitter.com/jack/status/110848 (sorry for birdsite link)—if you're actively involved in Bitcoin Core's development and need this funding, and would like me to write a recommendation for you, let me know!

Bitcoin Core 0.18.0 release candidate 2 is available for testing


Preliminary release notes for the release can be found here:


An issue has been opened on github to report experiences while testing:


@Chrozayis is this "WORM drive" a specific technology? i thought it was simply the general name for mediums such as CD-RW

@FreePietje @jon mentioning the issue in the RC announcements makes sense, yes, will try to do that next time
