Heaven forbid kids actually learn about Computer Science.

Thanks UK Government for panicking clueless boomer parents into confiscating Little Ricky's computer because you found Bad Software on it.

Something to keep in mind...

Documentaries can be worse than fictional movies at twisting, misrepresenting, or lying about their subject matter. Nature documentaries use editing tricks, artificially created sounds, and computer graphics to deceive. Historical docs may present images and archival film in a misleading way.

I recommend watching the documentary “Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable" on Netflix (if still there). Don't read or watch anything about it before you see it.

This has to be the hottest take I've seen this year. :brain4:

Question for our colonial cousins: what does "keepin' it real" actually mean? Does it mean something like "let's stay grounded in reality here"? Why would you not "keep it real"?

So in the process of trying to port SBCL to Haiku, I attempted to port GCL (GNU Common Lisp) to bootstrap it with.

That didn't compile because it turns out Haiku has ASLR! No concept of users or logins or security of any sort, and yet it has ASLR.

It's a fascinatingly weird little operating system.
