Note: They are not building a reactor at this stage. They are trying out container materials, putting the salt and their half-meter-tall container inside their existing research reactor to kickstart the transmutation and fission. No cooling cycle or any of that mechanical stuff.

- There's a new and improved CTFE coming to D, with performance optimizations: "At 5 times the speed. While using 40% the memory."
Compile Time Function Evaluation. That's pretty meta. Does it compile the compile-time runtime, so that there is a compile-time compile-time? Can you run CTFE there? :-D
If you're less lazy than me, the answer is probably here:
- Most reports are saying "daring pilots", "only the Dutch!" and so on. I don't want my pilots to be daring, I want them to be careful and safety-conscious.
Some are saying it seems like this flight had a good window to land safely, near the eye of the typhoon and with the winds blowing the right way for a landing, so they did.
Others are saying it looks more like exactly the kind of reckless behavior the headlines are praising.
The most sober report seems to be this first one:
> “They were pretty strong [winds]. Depending on the angle to runway, they would be in excessive of the landing limits,” an experienced local pilot with Cathay Pacific Airways said of the weather conditions at the airport.
> No bravery involved. Winds were in line with runway.
> To be fair, the METAR is showing wind straight down the runway. So legal (cross winds are what shut runways) but give the windshear caused by Lantau, certainly more balls than brains
> "[ . . . ] the tropical storm had not yet reached the airport," said a KLM spokesman for NH News.
I haven't found what "NH News" is, if it's really a New Hampshire newspaper being the only ones to talk to KLM about Hong Kong or if it's something else entirely.
Although much attention has been paid to the technology of remote killing, the focus on drones has been in many ways a distraction, a surrogate for what should be a broad examination of the state’s power over life and death. Whether extrajudicial killings are carried out by drones or manned aircraft or special forces operators on the ground, the result is the same. Drones are a tool, not a policy. The policy is assassination.
[ . . . ]
As secret U.S. military documents obtained by The Intercept confirmed, the Obama administration as a matter of policy classified unknown persons killed in airstrikes as “enemies killed in action,” even if they were not the intended targets. During a five-month period in Afghanistan, for example, nearly 90 percent of those killed in one high-value campaign were not intended targets. Between January 2012 and February 2013, U.S. special operations airstrikes killed more than 200 people, only 35 of whom were intended targets. All were labeled EKIA, enemies killed in action.
- Funny when you see some videos on datamost, and you open those posts in new tabs for later viewing ... only the tabs don't show the video inline, because they're on identi.ca and inline youtube is a pretty new feature.

00:51 < jxself> But if someone's going to be against the GPL then, in order to be logically consistent, they must also be against proprietary software which by their own standards must be even worse than the GPL is because it will have even more restrictions in it.
