Our professor of the Software Engineering Group Project course told us that a software product should try to keep users in the application for as long as possible, and try to avoid directing users away from the platform we control.

From a "commercial" point of view, this is, to some extent, correct, but this model is really extremely broken. The current ecosystem of the Internet has proven how bad an idea it is for everyone to keep users exclusively on one platform. No application should even make the attempt to draw users' attention unless necessary for the functionality, and they should be kept as simple as possible -- a search engine shouldn't be an advertisement site, an IM shouldn't be a gaming center and a payment app, and so on.

But that model of a closed ecosystem does really work commercially, and that's why some of the hated companies succeeded financially anyway. Maybe what's broken isn't the software industry, but the entire idea of how we should do business.

If we're lucky, this might mean more "pointing sticks" on laptops. Although I doubt it, as their mainstream popularity has kind of failed already

美国费米国立加速器实验室计算中心宣布 Scientific Linux 项目正式停止。lwn.net/Articles/786422/

Scientific Linux 是由费米试验室、CERN、苏黎世联邦理工学院和德国电子加速器项目联合开发的发行版。其历史和 CentOS 一样悠久,都是 2004 年发起,且都是以 RHEL 重新编译为基础,由社区支持的发行版。虽然动机是满足实验室内部需要,但也是面向最终用户发布的通用发行版,一直是 CentOS 之外另一个显眼的基于 RHEL 的社区发行版。如今随着项目停止, 也标志着一段历史的结束。🕯️ 🕯️

实验室科学计算主任 James Amundson 表示,由于深层地下中微子实验项目(dunescience.org/ )涉及的国际合作,需要和各个实验室和学术机构建立统一的计算环境(* 因此他们认为继续开发 SL 已经没有意义?)。SL 6/7 仍会支持到生命周期结束为止,并感谢所有贡献过项目的参与者。但实验室在未来将部署 CentOS 8 而不是再开发 Scientific Linux 8,并和 CERN 继续合作使其成为一个更好的高能物理计算平台。

accidentally erased the source code to a program i was writing, now running photorec in order to recover all the text files possible.

in the worst case scenario, my boss should have a copy of the source code, but he isn't in the office yet.

Is mastodon now dead in the EU?

Unless it can screen all uploaded content for commercial material surely it won't be compliant with the new EU 'all your internet belong to us' seizure of the internet laws (#article11 and #article13)

SN.Angry.Im

Yet another excited Mastodon instance.

This node has not a main focus, and I do think it should never have. Read Rules before deciding to join, please.

This instance has an alias domain, `@angry.im`. Any user on this instance with `@sn.angry.im` can also be identified using `@angry.im`, e.g. `@[email protected]` and `@[email protected]` are equivalent. Other Mastodon instances will recognize the alias and redirect to the correct user account.
