Amazing... namecheap is having some dumb issue or another, and I notice there's a tiny --> at the top of the page. Who didn't close their comment properly?

View souce, and hahaha, they just dumped the nginx 502 error, complete with its own comments, into the comment. Remember that time your HTML 101 professor told you comments don't nest? Comments don't nest. Self injection ftw.

The NetBSD man page for le is filled with some lovely historical notes.


All sun3 systems are presumed to have this bad revision of the Am7990, until proven otherwise. Alas, the only way to prove what revision of the chip is in a particular system is inspection of the date code on the chip package, to compare against a list of what chip revisions were fabricated between which dates.

Alas, the Am7990 chip is so old that AMD has "de-archived" the production information about it; pending a search elsewhere, we don't know how to identify the revision C chip from the date codes.

I guess there's been a few times when I was annoyed at how long it took to scroll through some file, but I never thought the solution might be to shop for an electromagnetic mouse wheel. Like either the file is too big or the mouse settings are too slow, but it never occurred to me that my finger is too weak to physically spin the wheel fast enough.

The Electromagnetic MagSpeed wheel on MX Master 3 is up to 90% faster than scroll wheel of a regular mouse so you can effortlessly scroll 1,000 lines of code in a second.

So what's not new in the world of #Android security?

Back in September 2018, I reported a security bug in the /proc/$pid/stack interface and sent a patch that restricts this interface to root. That patch was quickly applied to mainline, the upstream stable trees, and the Android common kernel. Someone even assigned a CVE identifier to it, CVE-2018-17972. But in the Android ecosystem, that doesn't mean that it actually makes its way into device kernels - and at least on this Samsung phone, it still hadn't landed in a build with security patch level "1 November 2019".

For example, I might quote from section 7.1.1 Definitions of terms:

1 A string is a contiguous sequence of characters terminated by and including the first null character.

Or section The snprintf function:

3 The snprintf function returns the number of characters that would have been written had n been sufficiently large, not counting the terminating null character, or a negative value if an encoding error occurred. Thus, the null-terminated output has been completely written if and only if the returned value is nonnegative and less than n.

Reminder that the #C standard says null-terminated strings are null terminated.

Don't be this guy, posting pedantic bullshit without fact checking: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=22283042

The C standard is a fairly short read, and draft versions are freely available. You can very easily make correct, precise, and verifiable claims simply by quoting it. Or you can be an internet.
