my main impression of Puerto Rico is that at least in San Juan, no matter where you are or the time of day/night, there is the sound of a dembow at levels a mic could pick up


Great conversation with tonight. Some things we talked about:

  • Goryon being taken off the Google Play Store
  • The woes of uppercase ls and Iowercase Ls
  • De-Googling Android
  • The Google Glass and how it forced you into the walled garden
  • iOS and privacy
  • Privacy legislation and the extent to which people know about the spying
  • Creepy Amazon stores
  • The new issue of Lab6 (


hi guys. I am trying to solve the following problem in Go: I have a go template that just uses {{.Body}} or {{printed “%s” .Body}} for output.
on the go side I am using templates.ExecuteTemplate(w,“view.html”,data) as input.
the data.Body is a []byte which contains valid HTML.
The problem is, in the browser, or the templates.Execute only send escaped text to the browser. But it should not so I can create html on the server side

any ideas on how to solve this?


if the text isn’t reversed it isn’t a signet ring if the image looks like a wax seal rather than the tool used to leave the impression in the wax, not a signet ring


(#6bwqvpq) No, I haven’t. points to a web host that wouldn’t let me host a broker. I’ve got a VPS and some other domains, I just haven’t done it.

I couldn’t figure out the client, anyway. I couldn’t see my messages, and when I run salty-chat read I only got one message at a time. I haven’t touched it in a long time, though, so maybe things improved.


(#cy4gccq) Close, based on some of the work of uLinux 😅 – Still working on it, haven’t opened up the repo yet, but needless the init is basically entirely written in Go (with a few exceptions, like I’m using mdev from busybox, haven’t figured out how to replace that yet).


(#vzwh5ba) Actually, I’m really sorry about this. But I think I’m going to have to pull out. I blame myself, I was up till 3am last night working on something (shhh 🤫) and I got up late. We have friends over today so that’s going to collide 😅 You guys however can host a call (it’s a community thing anyway) and have a video Yarn and post what y’all talked about 🤗


i wonder if bookmarklets would make a good intro programming project – I’ve gotten a ton of mileage out of just “grab elements from the DOM, iterate through them, check a condition, and delete/hide/style them if they match” in different contexts.


every time i write myself a bookmarklet to modify a webpage in some only-maya-cares kind of way, i experience the user-extensible computing environment people claim to want. i can’t hear your complaints about javascript i’m too busy living in the future
