This morning I first checked the Hetzner Auction to find that the server I was going to buy when the price decreased another one Euro already was gone. Next chance may be this evening!
Next, I read a couple of emails, then checked LET, Nodeseek, here at LES, HN, and the Fedora Development Discussion email archive. Then I updated and rebooted my server.
The big Low End news for this morning seems to have been the LET raindog308 20K thanks thread, which even made it to Nodeseek.
HN had a post about Edsger Dijkstra. So I went off and read the Wikipedia article about Dijkstra.
For this afternoon I have several possibilities. I've been reading about compiling kernels the Fedora way, and bits and pieces of a bunch of C programming books. I'm looking for an explanation of why the FILE type is capitalized and most (all?) other types are not capitalized. The GNU C Library Manual mentions "historical reasons" for why a "stream type" is called FILE but doesn't elaborate on what those historical reason;s were. Could someone here please share what the historical reasons are for "stream" being called "FILE" and for "FILE" being capitalized? Is it as simple as, before networking, the "only" streams were to and from local files?
Probably everybody knows that Bram Moolenaar passed away. It isn't reading, but sometime soon I want to watch his 7 Habits for Effective Text Editing presentation at Google.
I used to read a little philosophy and religion. Recently I got Graham's Chuang-Tzu, but I haven't started reading it yet.
What are you guys reading these days?
