  • Bastian Blank: Salsa hosted 1e6 CI jobs
    Today, Salsa hosted it's 1,000,000th CI job. The price for hitting the target goes to the Cloud team. The job itself was not that interesting, but it was successful.

  • Steve Kemp: Implementing a FORTH-like language ..
    Four years ago somebody posted a comment-thread describing how you could start writing a little reverse-polish calculator, in C, and slowly improve it until you had written a minimal FORTH-like system: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=13082825 At the time I read that comment I'd just (...)

  • Bits from Debian: Debian Local Groups at DebConf20 and beyond

  • Joey Hess: comically bad shipping estimates and middlemen
    My inverter has unfortunately died, and I wanted to replace it with the same model. Ideally before I lose the contents of the fridge. It's a 24v inverter, which is not at all as easy to find a replacement for as a 12v inverter would be. Somehow Walmart was the only retailer that had it (...)

  • Russ Allbery: PGP::Sign 1.03
    Part of the continuing saga to clean up CPAN testing failures with this module. Test reports uncovered a tighter version dependency for the flags I was using for GnuPG v2 (2.1.23) and a version dependency for GnuPG v1 (1.4.20). As with the previous release, I'm now skipping tests if the (...)
