The red flag started waving when I discovered the vendor code I'm debugging is filled with carriage returns.

Then despair set in when I found hex_config_to_c.py generating code.

Vacation is definitely over. 😟

Introducing people.kernel.org

"Ever since the demise of Google+, many developers have expressed a desire to have a service that would provide a way to create and manage content in a format that would be more rich and easier to access than email messages sent to LKML. Today, we would like to introduce people.kernel.org, which is an ActivityPub-enabled federated platform powered by WriteFreely and hosted by very nice and accommodating folks at write.as."

“what’s the difference between a vendor that only promotes the ideas that are in its own interest and a foundation that does the same thing. Or worse, a foundation that will only represent projects that it’s paid to represent.”

Here's something frustrating in hardware design: vendor designs custom board such that there's no recovery mechanism without doing hardware rework. In this case, instead of providing a dip switch or jumpers, they force the developer to desolder/solder an 0402 resistor switch from QSPI<->UART bootloader mode. Just no thought to designing for development at all.

The "not doing April Fools" thing? Fully endorse and agree.

*sigh* definitely a case of the Mondays: s/muti-user.target/multi-user.target/

DMA! DMA! My kingdom for working R-Car 3 DMA!

Facebook collected users' phone numbers for 2FA, then made it impossible for them to keep their phone number private techcrunch.com/2019/03/03/face Facebook is not concerned about privacy because it views data as something to capitalize, not protect. Choose services that value #privacy

OAuth2 key/scope bugs are analogous to embedded pinmuxing bugs where you look everywhere else first before coming back to the obvious.

@trini @bradfa As part of the ongoing discussion of the need for higher end arm64 desktop solutions... I'd be far more willing to be on something from fsl/nxp with proper docs and community support than anything in a similar core configuration from amlogic, rockchip, etc. linuxgizmos.com/first-i-mx8-qu

Filling my development system with loads of node.js stuff for a fun FOSS project. I'm not sure if I should be happy or sad right now but I know it's Friday.

Gotta love the React's dangerouslySetInnerHTML attribute. Not every framework warns about security risks in their naming.

I was using SSH on my smart phone once and I looked up for a moment and thought.. TRUCK!!!!!!!
