This week’s Lazy Reading started as overflow from last week.
- Cron checker. Cron commands to English. (via)
- Unboxing the Magnus supercomputer. Aw, Crays don’t look as cool as they used to. (via)
- OpenVMS gets a new lease on life. (via) Also, there are public OpenVMS installations like deathrow (via) and pub1 (via).
- Unix: Controlling privileged access.
- Unix: Top networking commands and what they tell you.
- runit instead of systemd, on Void Linux. A ray of hope. (via)
- The future of iced coffee. Why can’t someone put the same treatment into tea? (via)
- What ORMS have taught me: just learn SQL. (via)
- Docker security with SELinux. Containerization, which is all the rage these days, does not enforce the same security wall as with a virtual machine – containers can ‘leak’ to their parent operating system. I’m not sure enough people realize this. (via)
- A very tiny, monospace, bitmap font. Check the screenshot of it being used on a 320×200 screen. (via)
- lowRISC. Open source System on a Chip.
- The Worst API Ever Made. I can’t judge if that’s really so, but it’s always fun to watch trainwrecks. (via)
- My history with Forth & stack machines. Forth is a crazy language, in a good way. (via)
- Lawless Legends, an Apple][ FRPG – in development. (via)
- A Mac IIci
Your unrelated comics link of the week: Quantum & Pixel. Another Boulet comic, this time exploring 2D physics.
