The final remaining patent on the MP3 format — "METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR ENCODING DIGITAL SIGNALS EMPLOYING BIT ALLOCATION USING COMBINATIONS OF DIFFERENT THRESHOLD MODELS TO ACHIEVE DESIRED BIT RATES" — has expired today.

@Divan Can't host it; Can't see the source; Don't trust it.

Regardless of who provides a service, if you can't verify, don't trust.

DMD (reference D compiler) backend finally under an open source license:

Now hopefully people will stop assuming that 'D is proprietary' (GDC, LDC have been open source from start)

@Gargoylezoo HI! following interesting people (you mention astronomy, so :p)

Timeline of my fancy linux router research:

* Banana PI R1: don't bother (kernel support)
* ODROID XU-4 + Ethernet dongle: Sorta works. But... kernel issues. Might be worth to get a new one now that 4.9 works.
* ClearFog: (could be) awesome but don't get Base and don't get the EMMC version!
* Old PC: Great but... watts
* Turris: Awesome! can't afford ATM...
* Some old router I found laying around: Yay! Works with LEDE! ... broken wifi

going to buy a cheap router and slap LEDE/OpenWRT on it.

Hello world. Again.

Moving to town so I can be inactive here for a change.
