Crise climatique : Extinction Rebellion bloque des lieux emblématiques de Londres

Au premier jour d’une « semaine internationale de rébellion », lundi, plusieurs milliers de militants ont mené des actions de désobéissance civile afin de dénoncer l’inaction face au réchauffement.

Non aux écrans publicitaires énergivores qui poussent à la surconsommation dans le métro !

@elois D'ailleurs je me demandais pourquoi il fallait absolument implémenter la réciproque de l'application d'un bloc. Si le rollback est de 100 blocs au maximum, ce ne serait pas plus simple de stocker les 100 derniers index ?

@elois à un moment, tu dis que les "traits" ressemblent un peu aux "interfaces". Je connais les interfaces en Julia. Quelles sont les différences ?

@elois J'avais déjà lu et adoré le rust-book après t'avoir rencontré à , mais la difficulté et le manque d'application immédiate m'avait écarté du langage. Entre temps j'ai découvert (et adoré) le Julia, très utile en milieu scientifique, qui me donne à nouveau envie de m'intéresser au rust du fait de ses similitudes. Ton Rustkathon est très motivant :)

in IPT - information and processing technology - we learned to code. we started with PHP, then moved on to visual basic .NET. this required windows, so we were all given a virtual machine to run it.

the default name of the main disk on the macbooks was "Macintosh HD", which i changed to "Crapintosh HD" because i was hilarious. windows defaulted to "Hard Disk Drive", which teenage lynne hilariously renamed to "Hard Dick Drive". all well and good, except it turns out that the tech staff had enabled drive sharing by default to allow the staff to see all the drives on the network, and teachers were complaining about seeing Hard Dick Drive in the network list. i got in trouble for that one

apple had (has?) a plan where schools get a huge discount on bulk purchases of apple computers, so not only did we all have macbooks, every class had an apple TV, and the graphics lab did their rendering on imacs (this was awful)

every room's apple TV was named using a simple naming scheme (e.g. room A3 had A3_TV) and an even simpler password (A3 had password a3). this meant that kids quickly figured out how to connect to the TV to display whatever the hell they wanted

for this and other reasons (like dual-booting ubuntu) i quickly became tech support's least favourite person, and at one point i even had admin privileges removed from my account, which i gave myself back

every mac comes with two programs for easily creating apps: applescript and automate. back then, i was interested in computers like i am now, but instead of writing code to help people, i liked to mess around making silly "viruses" that did things like maximising the brightness and repeatedly inverting the screen colours (i know this is very bad to do, but i was a kid at the time and didn't think about the consequences, especially since the "virus" could only spread through manually sending it to others), or locking the screen and displaying a troll face (it was a simpler time)

the school had some software to remotely control the macbooks to ensure kids didn't mess around in class, including something that prevented users from playing minecraft. it did this by automatically killing "minecraft.app" whenever it started. people quickly figured out you could just rename the app to get it to work - never underestimate the technological abilities of kids who want to avoid work

everyone's laptop was named, e.g., "Lynne Bune's MacBook". you could change this to whatever you wanted. people soon started using the name "[name of head of IT]'s MacBook Pro" and sending bluetooth connection requests to other kids to freak them out

these particular versions of macOS (mac OS X at the time) also had a setting to announce the time on the hour with the speech synth voice. as soon as one kid found the setting, everyone had it enabled. you could also make it use silly voices, like one that was autotuned to "in the lair of the mountain king" (?), and there was a setting to announce the time once every fifteen minutes. this got very old very quickly

at my high school, the school laptops were macbooks
this ended up being a lot of fun

so every macbook had an IR receiver, which you could use to change the volume with a remote. this meant that anyone with said remote could change the volume of everyone's macbook if they were at the back of the class and pointed it forwards, and could also make them all start playing music from itunes. thankfully, you could disable the IR receiver in system preferences, but by default it was enabled, which led to Shenanigans

Je hais nvidia, je hais windows, je hais le logiciel propriétaire, je hais cette prison dans laquelle une large majorité de personnes sont et ne veulent pas sortir.

... en démarrant windows, je découvre que skype se démarre automatiquement (classique) sauf que maintenant ce n'est plus possible d'empêcher ce comportement. Confirmation sur le site de microsoft :

> Note: The option to stop Skype from automatically starting is not available in Skype for Windows 10 (version 14). To stop Skype from automatically starting, just sign out of the app.

Pour essayer de , j'ai d'abord essayé sur mon ordi fixe sous Ubuntu avec une carte graphique Sapphire Radeon, j'ai dû arrêter parce que ce logiciel "libre" ne fonctionne qu'avec cuda (nvidia), donc je suis allé sur l'ordi portable du travail sous manjaro qui a une carte nvidia. J'ai dû renoncer à installer cuda sur linux, donc j'ai démarré windows en dual boot pour enfin y arriver mais...
