Note: I have Ctrl/Fn swapped via bios.
Prerequisite: SysRq has to be enabled:
- Hold Fn+Ctrl+Alt+S
- Release all but Alt, keep holding Alt
- now we’re effectively in Alt+SysRq+…, and can hit the final key for magic function:
b = reboot
e = terminate all processes
i = kill all processes
h = dump help to kernel log, and finally:
f = invoke OOM killer
- run a
dmesg -w, watch what happens, especially with h
xev should report
Sys_Req after Fn+Ctrl+Alt+S, among all the modifiers
Description=Enable SysRq key
systemctl enable sysrq.service

Some artists will benchmark your utf8 support [and beyond]:
[…] Magma and their Kobaïan made-up language featuring some custom diacritics that don’t exist in utf8.
Of course, see also the famous Falsehoods Programmers Believe About Names.
This also reminds me that on BC BY-NC-SA I’ve noticed how bad Bandcamps slugify is: 無限大 becomes –14 (the 14 is just an anti-hash-collision counter, I believe)
Impressive use of photogrammetry:
Most surprisingly, the cave’s ceiling features very large anthropomorphic glyphs that are not apparent in situ due to the tight confines of the cave. We argue that photogrammetry offers untapped potential for not simply the documentation but also the discovery of a variety of archaeological phenomena.

Then I got a chance to try one at the NY World’s Fair of 1964-65, at the Bell Labs pavilion. I was hooked! When I figured how to make it not just speak, but sing, it earned an assured place in a forthcoming new album. You know, it seemed an exciting idea to share! The first reactions were unanimous: everyone hated it!
Reminds me of my first time hearing Daft Punk’s Discovery, it took a while!
this will hereby hopefully join, in my brain, netstat’s tulpn and ps’s aux:
set -euxo pipefail
-e — exit immediately when one command fails
-u — fail on undefined vars
-o pipefail — fail if a pipe fails
-x — be very very verbose

Right after, in my feed, the marvelous marbleous perlin noise posted this beautiful… cut:
Excellent Animation and generative stuff. Makes me want to get into shader programming. Bonus points for citing their own website under Works, recursively.
