there's a privilege escalation vuln in the "beep" utility.

maybe the windows trolls were right and linux _does_ indeed suck.

maybe if someone told me that when i was 11, i would have been a successful c# / asp.net developer now, making way more than i do now. twitter.com/puellavulnerata/st

wanted: work

I am a copywriter, although I could do a lot of different kinds of writing. I bet I could do technical writing, if it came up. I know about marketing but honestly I don't like doing it very much.

I'm also an editor! And a regular writer! And a lot of other things!

If you know someone who needs me, or what I can do, please suggest me. I'm good at what I do and unemployed!

Currently upgrading to 2.3.2rc5, hold on!

TIL Chrome is scanning your files, including private folders, in the background as an anti-malware measure

There’s currently no “off” switch, but apparently the devs reassure that scans are local and not “cloud” based. But this still has consent and privacy implications

It amuses me how unstable servo is

Huh the event loop stuff is all working OK. This is neat

The text editor I’m making is using Servo as a front end. And... servo is building and running all ok in a GL context :D

So, I’m building a text editor...

I've started writing and recording some Java tutorials, hopefully they can be helpful to people studying it at uni, or anyone who wants to learn

The last few weeks have certainly been interesting.

Looking to upgrade to 2.3.* in the next few days!

Probably not tonight though, got off a train from Edinburgh very early this morning, after quite a few days of traveling. I don't trust me to do that when I'm this tired.

Are you based in #London (or willing to relocate)?

It turns out the company I work for is aggressively #hiring software testers to fill our #QA ranks.

Get in touch for details!

(or boost, of you're so inclined) 🚀

Just finished open-sourcing one of my projects at work:

github.com/arachnys/protostub

It generates Mypy type stubs from a protocol buffers definition, so you can typecheck your protobuf usage in Python
