Talking about Go 1.16, this is a release to be excited about. Here are some of my personal highlights:

- fs.FS interface. This should make a bunch of filesystem operations agnostic to the underlying storage service.

- Clean up of 'go get' vs 'go install'

- Embedding files into binaries
- Smaller binaries
- Faster linking
- darwin/arm64 support

so what are you awesome people up to today?

Oh sweet - turns out it wasn't DNS but the fact v4 was improperly configured. (This is what I get for being primarily IPv6...)

Hi, @spotlight!

Hm.. federation's still not working for some unknown reason. going to blame DNS as always ._.

it's so easy to theme though! I'm loving it, it's so flexible yet so straightforward

today I got around to migrating from Jekyll to WriteFreely!

Needs a fair amount of theming... additionally, the fediverse aspect of it appears to be broken at the moment. guess it's time to see if I'll stick with it ;p

I threw tayga up for NAT64 and life is pretty decent! This is actually usable for day-to-day usage, might just stick with it eventually..

hi from an IPv6-only network! :D
I’m tunnneling a /64 from my own range and radvd is purring with hostapd on a Raspberry Pi 4 (2 gb ram):

things learnt:
- I knew Twitter and GitHub did not have v6, but the entirety of Stack Exchange and DuckDuckGo too??
- all of Apple + Akamai’s ranges have no ROA, to which I dropped invalids _and_ lack of and did not notice for quite a few hours
- OwO Beta properly supports v6 \o/
- some of my own things are very broken with it

the golden rule of software design: if Jira does it, do not even consider doing it.

i have since learnt that if you qemu-img convert -p -O qcow2 orig.qcow2 compact.qcow2 it seems to internally drop zeros/rearrange it and tar does a far better job on the image

why is it cheaper to repeatedly gsutil cp -> gcloud compute images create -> gcloud compute images delete than it is to host a 30 GB image for a month straight

i do not understand this but you know it's okay
