Happy 30th to #Python 1.0.0, announced by Guido van Rossum on 27 Jan 1994 in comp.lang.misc! 🎂 🎈 3️⃣0️⃣ 🍾 🎉

Python 1.0.0 is out!

Guido van Rossum
27 Jan 1994

—> Tired of decyphering the Perl code you wrote last week?

—> Frustrated with Bourne shell syntax?

—> Spent too much time staring at core dumps lately?

Maybe you should try Python, the next generation object-oriented
scripting and prototyping language, with a *readable* syntax.

RT Screwtapello:

I never had an Amiga, but I recently discovered the “Topaz” monospaced font used in the original Amiga 500 is actually pretty great - it’s got that lo-fi pixelly crunch, but it’s also high-contrast, consistent, and visually clear. The only problems keeping it from being a good terminal font in 2024 are:

* It doesn’t include box-drawing characters, block graphics, or any other fancy Unicode glyphs people expect these days
* It’s a bitmap font, and modern operating systems tend to only support scalable vector fonts

So, I fixed those things.

Guten Morgen.

Es ist der 19. Januar 2024.

Noch 14 Jahre bis zum Ende der 32 Bit Epoch, time_t overflow, Chronocalypse.

Unix zählt Zeit in Sekunden seit dem 1. Januar 1970, Mitternacht UTC. Der Zähler ist vom Typ time_t, ein 32 Bit signed integer.

Nach 0x7fff ffff Sekunden läuft der über, in genau 14 Jahren ist es soweit. Danach ist die Zeit negativ, wir sind in 1901.

In 1995 computing pioneer Niklaus Wirth wrote “A Plea for Lean Software”. In 2024 it is entirely normal for simple software to be shipped as a 350MB package, or for it to have 1600 dependencies. In appreciation of Wirth’s legacy, I wrote a 2024-era Plea for Lean Software, updated for today’s computing horrors: berthub.eu/articles/posts/a-20

It is essential to stop using Chrome.

Under the pretense of saving users from third-party spyware, Google is creating an ecosystem in which Chrome itself is the spyware.

Given Google’s overwhelming presence in the browser market, this is unconscionable.

We should all despise the ad-tech business, and have no sympathy for the companies getting whacked by Google’s actions. But we should not permit one monopolist to replace them all.
