Apparently this is the week where I comment about my links.
- The Internet of Things – A disaster for no good reason. Comparison of old smoke detectors vs. new. You may already have an inkling of the outcome.(via)
- Powershell 6.0 Roadmap. Interesting because it’s both Microsoft admitting people want a shell, and it’s Microsoft committing to creating a cross-platform shell.
- RFC8200: A revision of IPv6. (via)
- 50 days of postmarketOS. (via)
- The State of Developer Ecosystem in 2017. Jetbrains-customer specific, probably, but: note how many developers don’t use version control or issue trackers. It seems like those would be the most elemental tools? (via)
- DOS Game System Project. Real hardware, not emulated.
- AmigaOne X5000 review: The beloved Amiga meets 2017. (via)
- This 10-Pound Keyboard From The 1980s Is Making A Comeback. The urge for buckling-spring keyboards hits the mainstream. (via)
- Linguistics and Programming Languages. (via)
- Unix-like personal webpage. I like the scanline effect. (via)
- moving to https.
- Ask HN: What tools do you use to manage your life?
- What is a fantasy map? A scholarly article at the British Library. (via)
- Do people write insane code with multiple overlapping side effects with a straight face?
- Kingsway, a mix of a Win95 desktop and a fantasy roguelike. (via)
Your unrelated animated GIF of the week: I find this … Inspirational? Hilarious?
