  • 20 years of macOS

    After using Classic Mac OS at school for some time, it took me several years to return to the Mac. It was 2004, and I was happy to discover Mac OS X 10.3 Panther. It was completely new and better. Been using it until today (not Panther, though) and will, for the coming years. Some behind the back usages of other OSes, but let him who is without sin cast the first stone.

  • Oblivious DoH - a new DNS standard

    Today we are announcing support for a new proposed DNS standard — co-authored by engineers from Cloudflare, Apple, and Fastly — that separates IP addresses from queries, so that no single entity can see both at the same time. Even better, we’ve made source code available, so anyone can try out ODoH, or run their own ODoH service!

  • Modern IDEs are magic. Why are so many coders still using Vim Emacs?

    This year’s AWS conference, re: Invent, is a fully virtual one. If you never heard of re: Invent, it’s the conference where AWS announces what they’ve been working on, and what the competition has to catch-up with (the list is long).

  • Raspberry Pi 400

    I’ve been waiting a long time for something like this to come along. It shouldn’t take that long for it to become available in my usual supplier. Someone’s getting one for Christmas, now that the Arduino interest is starting to pick up some steam.
