Finished setting up my new @system76 Leopard system. Easy to install my own hardware, gorgeous, and a rocket even with a modest load out. Whisper quiet too, important for podcast recording.
The feeling when the first, crude piece of the new framework you are writing in #rust (https://github.com/commandline/luminal) benchmarks at a whopping 5,000,000 requests per second. Even with a healthy grain of salt I am impressed.
Having a better day at #FOSDEM despite missing the morning Rust talks. Talks in the Legal and Policy Issues track room have been very engaging.
0 for 3 trying to get into the Rust dev room. Moved to Legal and Policy Issues track, way more room. Thankfully I am a policy nerd, too. #FOSDEM
From DC to Brussels is a long way to come to only see talks on the live stream. Maybe I should lean into it, start a hallway conf, FOSHALL. #FOSDEM
Many people still waiting to get into Rust dev room are watching the current talk on the live stream. #FOSDEM WiFi is pretty good actually, so that’s good at least.
And the line moved. Only about ten people made it into the Rust dev room. #FOSDEM Guess I should be glad that Rust has such interest. Will wait one more session before finding something else.
Missed the first talk in the Rust dev room by 15 minutes and this is the line to get into the next talk.
The crowds have out done me at #FOSDEM, today. Will spend the rest of the day playing tourist. Tomorrow I will try to arrive early and camp in the Rust dev room, per suggestion, despite the mobile app saying it is full.
I am about two talks away from giving up for the day. Made into only one so far, everything else I tried had panick inducing crowds. #FOSDEM
