Had this one done before the last Lazy Reading. There are so many things to see and think and do in a day, and they’re not even all on the Internet. You get only the Internet ones here, though.
- Slashdot founder Rob Malda on why there won’t be another Hacker News. Found on Hacker News, of course, and I suspect the title was designed to get clicks from there. Some interesting thoughts on how people read.
- Facebook is like a television that monitors to see how much you are laughing and changes the channel if it decides you aren’t laughing hard enough.
- Unix routing. It’s actually Linux routing, but if you avoid the Linux-specific parts, it’s a useful introduction.
- ASCII cheat sheet.
- How to build a user-level CPU profiler. Followed by Hacking the OS X Kernel for Fun and Profiles.
- Mediagoblin. I haven’t tried it, but the idea is a good one. As long as we don’t have to call it GNU/Mediagoblin.
- I was going to make a joke about not using software I can’t name out loud without sounding incomprehensible, but then again, I’m using BSD. Too late for that joke.
- The Future of Programming. Take the time to watch this. The list of resource links is enough to fill several afternoons with reading. Also, it’s not yet another TED talk where someone is trying to communicate excitement rather then information. (via)
- If I’m going to link to Reggie Watts, why not look at one of his music videos? Normally that would be an Unrelated Link, but I just made it related from the previous item, yay! (link contains naughty language.)
- Go for system administrators. (via)
- Git + webcam = lulz. This could be fun or scary or both. (via)
- Retro video games, delivered. (via) I still hope to build a MAME box someday.
- 0.9999999999 repeating = 1.
Your unrelated comics link of the week: Boulet’s Long Journey. Get ready for a lot of scrolling. I know there’s a lot of really good French comics that I don’t see just because I don’t speak the language. (This one’s in English, but the cartoonist is French.)
