Quarterfinals, Match 3 of the 2nd Programming Language World Championships! #plwc2020
@sir I got a new monitor (hidpi), so I'm gonna wipe my laptop clean and reinstall linux. I want to try Sway and its ecosystem, what distro will give me the best experience? I imagine its well supported on Arch and Alpine, any (other) recommendations? I'm currently running Void with glibc and bspwm, I'm leaning towards Alpine as it is also systemd-free, but idk how it will be without glibc...
So, SourceHut is not hosted in anyone's cloud. I own all of the hardware outright and colocate most of it in a local datacenter.
I just built a new server for git.sr.ht, and boy is she a beat. It cost me about $5.5K as a one-time upfront cost, and now I just pay for power, bandwidth, and space, which runs about $650/mo for *all* of my servers (10+).
Ran back of the napkin numbers with AWS's price estimator for a server of equivalent specs, and without even considering bandwidth usage it'd cost me almost TEN GRAND PER MONTH to host JUST that server alone on AWS.
AWS is how techbro startups pile up and BURN their investor money.
@sir I saw in many of your scripts in your dotfiles you have `# dependecies ... ` a la modeline. I was wondering, is that some sort of accepted format, or just your own idea? are there programs that parse does already?
I was thinking of making one, that could possibly be used for git.sr.ht too to have the syntax highlighting follow (vim) modelines for manually setting the syntax language for files with no extension, and also to have something that can recursively check a given folder for all deps required (eg in dotfiles).

Also, small phones.
Why have we, as a society, seemingly converged on big phones and small laptops? It's like we're *aiming* for the awkward not-quite-big-enough-to-be-useful-or-small-enough-to-be-handy middle ground!
I made a simple pastebin app in Go:
So I'm building a simple pastebin, obviously I want to keep it simple and not have accounts, but I also want to be able to update bins, so I made it that if you resubmit with the same id it overwrites... So now anyone can overwrite any bin cuz the id is what you use to share and fetch the bin :facepalm:...
