Fast 76.000 neue Infektionen seit gestern!

Seid ihr alle komplett bekloppt? Also ihr Politiker und alle Ungeimpften. Ich hab echt kein Verstaendnis mehr fuer dieses Herumgehampel und das Zoegern.

Weil ihr so scheisse seid, haben die Geimpften und vor allem auch die Kinder einen beschissenen Winter mit Einschraenkungen vor uns, die nicht haetten sein muessen.

Die Pflegenden in Praxen und Kliniken muessen auch unter eurer Ignoranz massiv leiden!

Was ist nur mit euch los?!

Die norwegische Post hat einen schöne Weihnachtswerbung veröffentlicht :rainbow_heart_eyes:

Dienstag morgen. 9:30. Meeting.
Klickste auf den Link, um das Meeting mit (ich mach da nun einen Hashtag draus, der gerne trenden kann), joinst das Meeting und dann stuerzt Skype ab.

Keine Pointe...

Merke: wenn Skype for Businesskaspers hängt ("Keine Rückmeldung" im Taskmanager), kann man auch keine neuen Termine in Outlook erstellen. Das entsprechende Fenster öffnet sich nicht und es hat einen Warten-Mauszeiger.

Äh... also ich meine... WTF?!

Ich will das alles nicht. Wo ist der versprochene Open Source Arbeitsplatz!?

Wenn man sich so die Nachrichten anschaut, dann frag ich mich teilweise, ob wir grad in einem dystopischen Film sind...?

Einfach mal re-sharen, weil es eine schöne Aufnahme ist

... buildd.net database you can find my examples where the build times increased significantly without much benefit.

I don't think that binutils included so many new features between versions 2.22 and 2.24 to rectify the increase of build times from 8 hrs to >2 days.

There is another table that also tracks installed sizes and such, btw...

Ah, what I intended to say at the beginning:

When we talk about we should also think about code complexity and code sizes. Letting just the compiler do the optimizations will result in larger packages and longer build times and thus in more wasted energy.

Invest the energy instead into designing an optimized code right from the start - inside of your brain. Think about yourself, where you can optimize your code. Don't let the optimizer of your compiler do it for you.

I operated buildd.net until approx. 2015. The project became too complex with all of its scripts and needed a redesign.

I also operated several Debian autobuilders for the m68k port, without being an official DD, which was something "special" back then and wouldn't be possible today, I think.

I still think that buildd.net was unique and a benefit for the Debian project.

That's some small part of in Open Source Software and Debian in particular.

What's your ?

The 4 buildds aahz, arrakis, elgar and kullervo were each with MC68060, 128 MB RAM and sometimes SCSI (arrakis, aahz & kullervo).

Kullervo was the very first autobuilder of Debian in history (AFAIK).
I joined kullervo with arrakis approx. in March 2000. Back then kullervo had a backlog of maybe 2000 packages. And it also hosted the first version of what later became buildd.net.
It consisted of some Rexx and bash scripts.

Did I already mentioned how slow programs became? Not only in running, but also in compiling.

On codeberg.org/Windfluechter/bui you can find the source code of buildd.net, a framework to monitor the network back then. Originated from monitoring the buildds on .

However, see & compare the times of e.g. binutils over time...

The database still exists, but the buildd.net project itself not.
