encryption shouldn't be done with TLS though.

It's difficult to do TLS right, people have tried and ended up with broken systems for which downgrade attacks apply.

TLS isn't possible for users to implement, we would be forced to depend on a library. This doesn't fit within the spirit of gopher.

TLS would be to complected and tangled up with gopher clients and servers. Using .onion provides strong security in a perfectly orthogonal way.

I just thought of a cake in the shape of a Hilbert curve to optimize for the best part of the cake: the edges, then I discovered someone already made it! I'm glad that there are brains out there that think about the same stuff as me.

You call yourself a hacker with your github repos, your Twitter snark, and your medium articles.

A hacker you say? You're a product. A cog in their machinery.

I think this community is a remarkable bastion of what's left of this.

@rain
Indeed, that one is great 👍. It and Juergen Lorenz's tutorial on Chicken macros wiki.call-cc.org/explicit-rena were what I had gathered by looking on my own.

I'd like some recommendations for tutorials on #Scheme macros. #R5RS syntax-rules for sure, but beyond that, er- and ir-transformers, or #R6RS syntax-case, it's all up for grabs.

The motivation is to try to encourage colleagues to move beyond defmacro.

Okay though but what is some #solarpunk music??? Like i've been listening to some retrowave/futuristic/synthwave mixes on youtube and i've been wondering if there is something similar for solarpunk

[OH:wleslie] it was already really easy to avoid CSRF as a vulnerability, even before CORS was a thing: simply make authority-carrying resource names unguessable (make it a crypto-cap)

@mdhughes Here is my wish: the ability to move the cursor in the #shell command line by just clicking on the target character. Not for me, but for other begginers. Your wishes are also interesting. @codesections @alexbuzzbee

I've been mulling over research in programming for quite some time, and a talk like this is really up my alley.

What We Know We Don't Know

TL;DW the best code is written by a team of unstressed people that sleep 8 hours a night, and do code reviews; chances are type to untypes languages, dynamic to static, etc. etc. etc. don't matter nearly as much as these (yes, even TDD)
