Out of nowhere the warnings flashed red on his screen. David cursed as he ripped his oxygen mask from his sweat drenched face. He couldn't get timing closure on the design.

He was barely hitting 1.1GHz, and his goal was 1.5GHz. It was likely going to take weeks to untangle the longest paths causing the delays. They might even need to re-architecture some pieces.

"PEOPLE OF EARTH!" 

The alien noisily screeched as it broke into TV broadcasts and video streaming the world over. "TZAG!" the alien continued, baffling the stunned audiences as it waved appendages in a friendly, but slightly unsettling, manner.

Hello, fediverse. I'm Charles from the USA in the , OR area. I'm excited to be on as I'm hoping it will prove a viable alternative to the "free" social sites.

I make and for a living, and I dabble in for hobbies. Other interests not limited to: , , , , , and .

The company is 56% women identified cross-practice with a very healthy level of racial diversity (our CEO is BIPOC and our COO is a woman for starters). Fully remote, US only (sorry, we do gov contracts so it's a requirement), transparent salaries across the company (rework.fm/truss-the-process/), solid benefits including office setup budget and monthly employee effectiveness budget.

Our public employee handbook is here: guide.truss.works/ and our Engineering Playbook is here: github.com/trussworks/Engineer

TFW you are on a return trip to Earth after carefully sampling the solar wind and your drogue shoot doesn't open as you enter the atmosphere, and instead of being gracefully plucked out of the sky by helicopters you crash face first into the Utah desert.

Scheduled for my first dose.

Today we're kicking off the #GNU Assembly!

gnu.tools

This is a new umbrella for GNU people seeking transparent decision-making and built around consensus. It's the result of a decade of struggle to make #GNU inclusive, transparent, and community-driven.

#GNU contributors: consider joining!

#FreeSoftware activists: help us spread the word!

reposting this because I somehow didn’t realize that I had locked it down the last time. Whoops! But gettin through my watercolor work queue 😤

Coding nonsense 

Apparently Python's print(f"...") is close enough to C's printf("...") for my brain to substitute the latter for the former constantly.

Okay, this is probably an even better example of their performance. I'm not an expert by any means, but dang, they all seem absolutely solid performers. Fanny playing "Blind Alley":

Imagine becoming a fan of a band 50 years too late. 😆

TFW the ridiculous, usually useless algorithm manages to surface a gem from a band I had never heard of, but geez, I really should've:

Dear fediverse: do you know of any online shop in Europe that sells food-grade paper packaging such as bread bags in quantities suitable for the needs of a household (a min quantity of 100 pieces is fine, 1000 is not, 10000 is definitely way too high)?

Excluding amazon / ebay / other big platforms.

Thanks, and boosts welcome

Gentil fediverso: qualcuno conosce dei negozi online in Europa che vendono imballaggi di carta per alimenti, tipo i sacchetti del pane, e che vendano a privati in quantità adeguate a privati (acquisto minimo 100 pezzi va bene, 1000 no, 10000 è decisamente troppo)?

Che non siano amazon / ebay / altre megapiattaforme.

Grazie, e i boost sono graditi
