Announcing Xhotplug https://www.danielmoch.com/posts/2020/07/announcing-xhotplug/
wiresep seems to be broken on my i386 gateway device. Just up and stopped working in the middle of the day yesterday.
Contemplating installing an #OpenBSD snapshot and testing in-kernel WireGuard, but I’m loathe to do that on my gateway device.
WireGuard imported into OpenBSD https://undeadly.org/cgi?action=article;sid=20200622052207

I can provide more details if anyone is interested. What I know is that an ioctl somewhere is going pretty horribly awry.
Looks like uvideo(4) is going to need some attention if it’s going to properly support this Magecart HDMI to UVC dongle I bought.
Gearing up for my first foray into #OpenBSD kernel land. Wish me luck!
False choice, and yes it is https://blog.kodewerx.org/2020/06/the-rust-compiler-isnt-slow-we-are.html
@djmoch agreed. While I wouldn't call programming "the new literacy", since it really is quite okay for someone to not be a programmer, I do think learning to program is a lot like learning to read and write prose. Before you can totally apply your problem solving skills to creating program, you should be fluent enough in writing and reading code so that syntax is taking up very little of your brain power.
In agreement with the point of the article, I'm not really a fan of the word "coding", since the emphasis and joy of programming is not writing code, but designing a system with interconnected parts.
The problem with this article isn’t what it asserts, but what it denies. It creates a false choice between teaching problem solving and teaching programming language syntax. http://getpocket.com/explore/item/i-m-a-developer-i-won-t-teach-my-kids-to-code-and-neither-should-you
