it's funny how tame this snippet from James Mickens' "The Night Watch" looks in 2019 https://sdfn-01.ninjawedding.org/media/oO1-mv3Qbb8a5MXLcho
for example, I just learned this: https://techcrunch.com/2016/11/15/apple-brings-back-the-peach-butt-emoji/
a totally unspecified design feature of one implementation of an abstract pictograph took on such a strong emergent meaning that it is now part of what you might call the public interface of that pictograph
some of you might relate this to https://www.hyrumslaw.com/
Emojipedia now has a "random link" function (https://emojipedia.org/random/) and between that and the increasing number of links in the explanatory text, I have been thoroughly TV Tropes'd
C stdlib junk
one of the many things I love about the C standard library is that it provides a standard way to catch signals (signal) and for a process to raise a signal for itself (raise) but provides neither a standard way to start a process nor send a signal to another process
"but C is used in places that don't have a process concept"
yep, it sure is, and to that I'll say that the entire
signal.h part of the standard library may be omitted by a conforming freestanding implementation; see section 4, paragraph 6 of the C11 standard. so if you implement
signal.h you've probably got an OS and you'll have some process concept; and if you only have one process, your implementations of "send signal" are trivial
shitposting as lifestyle. #nobot if anything actually reads that
This is a small ship in the fediverse.
The name is borrowed from the mass-produced Macross-class ships in the Macross universe; SDFN-01 Hayase was the first of the line. The ships were designed to scout emigration routes ahead of the Megaroad colonization ship.
