I wonder if anyone’s done research on UserFS.framework, the FUSE-like thing that handles mounting external filesystems on iOS 🤔

its XPC bundle even ships with an internal “known plugins” plist, including fuse and “casfs”

Obviously, the main shortcoming of the Scratch development ecosystem is the lack of a robust cryptography library.

Until now!

Here's x25519 ECDH key exchange, blake2s hashing, and ChaCha20-Poly1305 AEAD - in Scratch

thinking about making the most infuriating architecture ever (27-bit word, 14 bit char) just so I can file lengthy GitHub issues about how their code makes assumptions that no C dev should

I've been bored this afternoon, so I spent a little time digging through Netflix's annual reports to see if I can find an explanation for why a drop in subscribership cratered their stock.

Wanna see what I found? Too bad, you're gonna. (thread 🧵)

despite the.. rather numerous incidents with Matrix previously, gotta say that spaces are absolutely one of the nicest things to come out of it all! everything feels so much more nicely organized than communities previously

This is the most terrifying list of password "security" requirements I've ever seen.

Like, way to ensure that I'll definitely use a unique password for you, BlueCross BlueShield of Illinois; are you pulling cleartext passwords from Excel before appending to a string passed to the mainframe equivalent of exec?

woah - the official Mastodon client for iOS is so nice to use! looking forward to the next version, will look mighty nice on an iPad 👀

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?
