#RustLang / Cargo support in #Gentoo has received a lot of optimizations over time.
Does that sound like a good thing? I'm afraid it isn't: it's just saying how *bad* the ecosystem is, that we have to keep adding hacks to make it even remotely usable.
For a start, we immediately gave up on packaging the dependencies separately. After all, we're talking about a humongous effort, creating thousands of Gentoo packages whose only purpose would be delivering sources that would be only linked statically into executables. Lot of effort, lot of space waste, no gain. Instead, every Rust package carries a huge list of crates it needs, and a humongous Manifest listing yet another set of copies of checksums for these crates.
We are strongly relying on mirroring crates on Gentoo mirror infrastructure. Why? Because crates.io is uselessly slow. On top of that, Portage normally does fetching in series, so grabbing hundreds of crates takes half an eternity. In fact, I've even made #PyCargoEbuild use aria2 to fetch new crates from crates.io in parallel to work around this.
I have recently added a hack to unpack crates in parallel, because even unpacking all of them is awfully slow. Ironically, the crates that seem to take most of the time to unpack are these responsible for Windows support.
PyCargoEbuild also has a function to repack all dependent crates into a single tarball that we redistribute. Why? Because some packages have so many dependencies that listing them all makes ebuilds and their Manifests humongous. For every package like that, *all* Gentoo users suffer a significant growth in repository size, even if they are never going to use the package in question. So instead of listing and fetching crates, we fetch a ready-made crate tarball. Which is also much smaller than all crates combined, and therefore faster to fetch and unpack (though I haven't compared this to parallel unpacking).
Oh, perhaps I should have mentioned first that Cargo is one of the few ecosystems that simply cannot be packaged without creating dedicated tools to prepare and update the ebuilds.
But yeah, Rust is awesome.

The packaging on the right is just a simple cardboard try they put the batteries in and then tape it to the flat cardboard piece
The packaging on the left has a whole separate shaped tray in there so it all takes up much more space for no reason.

It's been a long time since I got a spam call. I've literally started wondering whether I somehow fell off their databases, or just managed to block the numbers used by all popular call centers. But where did spammers get my phone number?
My top suspicion is shopping online. Buying stuff with delivery to the parcel machine requires giving the #phone number, and this means that the shopping platform, the vendor, the delivery company, and most likely some SaaS software used by the vendor got my number — and every single one of them could make some side money by selling my PII.
Then, there are medical facilities. We all know how safe our data is with them (e.g. #Facebook on their phones, and give them full access to the contacts. I've done a small experiment back in the day. I've had a pseudonymous fb account, practically unused, no personal data. One day I've added my phone number to it. Should anyone be surprised that almost immediately I've gotten suggestions to connect with people, whom I could only be linked to via the fact that they had my phone number?
There are actually two problems there. One is that they were processing my phone number without my consent. The other, more important one is that they effectively doxxed me. My "contacts" have gotten a suggestion to connect to my pseudonymous account. You can imagine how severe consequences this could have for people with serious issues.
For a long time, I've considered changing my phone number, getting off the databases. The problem is that, to say it bluntly, the only way to leaking it, is to keep it in a drawer. The moment I give my phone number to the members of my family, it goes straight to Facebook, and there's nothing I can do with it — neither by friendly request, nor by threat. Here's the modern world for you.

PLpol
People in Poland keep being "surprised" by left wing parties losing elections here, but really, what could you expect? You just have to listen to how my parents' generation thinks, and I suppose many youngsters believe the same story.
Of course, left wing politicians are "commies". And communism is the synonym of evil incarnate (it doesn't really matter that their primary problem was actually capitalism, the way People's Republic of Poland did it). "Commies" took away their freedom — "freedom" meaning the access to limitless consumption of wares of the great "western" culture.
So Tusk (the leader of the more liberal right wing party) is seen as the only "real" alternative to Kaczyński (the leader of PiS, the other big right wing party). That said, PiS is bad not because they're nazis. They're bad because they are "thieves" (but Tusk's thievery is fine, after all "every politician is a thief"), because they don't uphold democracy (when Tusk did it, it was fine, because they had to "restore order" after PiS's defeat) and most importantly, because they "give money away to people", and the country "is broke" as a result. You can't help people that way! The only people you should help are entrepreneurs, and that's going to solve all the problems. People just need to "move their asses" and start working.
And of course, these awful left wing politicians want to take their freedom. Saving the planet? Naah, they won't live long enough to suffer the worst (they're going to find a nasty surprise, or perhaps not, because they're not going to see through their illusion), so why should they give up on anything. They've "earned" everything they've got. And their grandchildren? They don't need clean air or water, they just need more toys and sweets.
And their bubble is always right. They have their new god to confirm that, their previous TV. The national TV, serving right wing propaganda, and private TV, serving capitalist propaganda. But it's all truth, because private TV obviously doesn't serve interests of a specific party. Besides, nobody would be watching news broadcasts full of lies! They'd lose viewers, and therefore money. Ergo, it all must be true.
Finally, all that's evil is the fault of immigrants, nonbinary people, people of different religion, skin color, culture, people who "are too lazy to work". There's always a better suspect than the white, cis, hetero, Catholic, truly polish bourgeois.

Social revolution, a how-to by @… (i know, it's NOT a how-to, fool), i loved reading this and was happy the campfire metaphor was not taken to a place i feared, the pissing on the embers before moving to the next campground:
"Social movements have an uphill battle. You’ve survived the initial repression, then you’ve survived the constant one-two punch of repression and recuperation. You’ve survived splintering by refusing to let the more radical elements within your movement be isolated and picked off. You’ve become a full-fledged revolution, combining mass social movements with militant actors who are redistributing property and defending the gains of the revolution.
The final recuperative force generally comes from within the revolutionary movement itself: authoritarianism. It’s Boromir grabbing the ring of power, it’s the Bolsheviks declaring themselves in charge of a pluralistic movement and killing everyone who disagrees with them.
The purpose of a social revolution is to redistribute power horizontally, but there will always be people who say “yes, and I should be given all of the power so that I can better redistribute it,” rather than continuing to work from the bottom-up model that built the revolution in the first place."

In an attempt to try and get out more I started a short improv course this evening. First of eight rehearsals to put on a show.
A couple of the folks there could use to learn to project and speak up a bit, overcome some shyness, but they seem a good bunch overall and improv is indeed exactly good for doing that.
The group is twice the size I like really, and Hoopla love all these short-form games instead of the longer projected narratives I prefer doing.
Hoopla are like the big-brand famous factory-line cult of improv courses. They do a lot of corporate training too. My previous experience of these things is quite deliberately avoiding the big-brand stuff and just hanging out with a tiny indy group. Which is more my scene really, but harder to chance into.
Gotta do the factory brand stuff to find the crew to make a new group I suppose.
Maybe for something with more long-form narrative I should have jumped into starting with the part three course instead of right to part two.
Hard to know how in advance how much of the intro course is skipable when I don't really know the Hooopla-specifc culture, having previously only been in the indy band.
Was good fun though. Missed the old group and getting to tell a good long story, but wnjoyed it so far.

I can't tell you how much I feel the missing-ness of @… from this earth. There's a big, gaping void where she should be. It's massive. How has the world not stopped turning to ask where she's gone? How have the trains not stopped and the shops shut?

Whatever rules Americans thought were in place are now being rewritten by Donald J. Trump,
The notion that 34 felonies is not automatically disqualifying
and a convicted criminal can be a viable candidate for commander in chief
upends two and a half centuries of assumptions about American democracy.
And it raises fundamental questions about the limits of power in a second term, should Mr. Trump be returned to office.
If he wins, it means he will have survived …

I just found this online "Fractions Calculator". Spot checking shows it is reasonably accurate. Should be good enough at least for "back of the envelope" calculations.

Alrighty, this is starting to look like it could actually be a puzzle! I'm happy with how this code is turning out - should be able to activate all sorts of things, and I don't need to simulate power flow - it's all signals. What sorts of machines should I add? #screenshotsaturday

screenshot from a work-in-progress video game level; a machine is connected to three other devices; the rightmost of the three is lit up in yellow, indicating it is active. The player character is standing next to it, suggesting they can take action to change which machine is powered. All art is placeholders, mostly grey boxes.

"By 1973, the first volume of the defining work of our craft, “The Art of Computer Programming” had been available in bookstores since 1968, and its first chapter literally consisted of a 100-something page long introduction to various mathematical concepts. Induction, logarithms, series, matrices, elementary number theory, permutations and factorials, Fibonacci numbers, are some of the subjects exposed in those beautifully typeset pages."

#Android teaches that you should read comments before upgrading applications.
Looks like #meteo.pl took over yet another unofficial weather app, and replaced it with thin wrapper that forces you to install the "official" app instead. I suppose I don't have to say that the official app is total crap.
The old version still works. How long is it going to keep working? I suppose it's time to find another weather provider.
NB: in Aurora Store, you can add it to the "blacklist" to hide the upgrade.
Quick correction: apparently they've changed the app to be less crap. Still, that practice of killing "competition" is awful.

This is a choice between two fundamentally different visions for our country.
Should the enormous, ineffective and inequality-abetting tax cuts that Donald Trump signed into law in 2017 be extended past their scheduled expiration in 2025?
And should the permanent corporate tax cuts in that bill be kept in place even as it has become clear how little these business goodies have done for the economy?
If the Trump tax cuts are extended

American cows now have bird flu.
But it’s time for planning – not panic
Since being identified in late March this year (meaning it was spreading for months among cattle unnoticed),
the virus has been confirmed in 33 herds in eight states.
Given how infectious H5N1 is
(the R number can be as high as 100 among birds
– meaning each infected bird could infect 100 others
– and is still unknown for cows),
and the fact cows are asymptomatic or hav…

So I'm bumping a package and the test suite fails with suspicious timestamp-related failures. So I do the obvious thing, and set TZ=UTC. It still fails. I do a quick math, and the timestamp difference looks weird — 8 hours.
I clone the repo to try to reproduce the problem. While that, I check how upstream runs tests and notice a comment:
# system should be in "America/Los_Angeles" timezone for all tests to pass
Well, okay. Then I make a bet that kloczek has already filed a bug about tests passing without actually bothering to try to figure it out. Of course he did:
