They are also available (and used) in SerenityOS:


> Does Mac have any sort of built-in VM framework like Hyper-V?

Two, actually. Hypervisor.framework [0] to build virtualization solutions on top of a lightweight hypervisor, without third-party kernel extensions, and Virtualization.framework, to create virtual machines and run Linux-based operating systems.

Thanks for the tip. I will have to take a look. It'd be nice if there were some github repos out there that leveraged this to make experimenting with Linux distros (including Desktop environments) as seamless as it is with VMWare Workstation - where things like high DPI resolution, copy & paste, etc. just work without too much trouble.

Crafting Interpreters [0] just came out in print and was widely discussed here [1], there's a Lang Jam [2] event happening this weekend which also spawned a useful HN discussion [3], so I just think a lot of readers here are interested in simple and fun language development tutorials and inspiration. But it is curious, part 2 of Brian Callahan's series [4] failed to get any traction here, maybe people aren't that into lexing?

Pretty close! Actually, someone was working on a short bash script for backing up some files, tried to remove some hardcoded values, had to use google to figure out how to get the information dynamically using `sysctl` and `system_profiler`, ended up on the Github page for neofetch, and thought "hey this is great, maybe this could be useful for other people as well!" and submitted it.

It's not quite compensation per se, but rsync.net will give you a very nice discount just for being a HN user. (I don't think they check how many points you have accumulated though.)

Video of the newer RoboScan v4 in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRDomN48SOs

this should be in README.md

The picture in the README is a link to a (older) YouTube video.

Self plug: I was annoyed by the lack of indicators: when it's a picture or a youtube link that I created https://mhasbini.com/blog/embed-youtube-in-github.html

E.g. of before & after: https://github.com/bezineb5/RoboScan/pull/2

ohhh, silly me! The picture was actually link to youtube!

Link to announcement about making the book free to access on the authors web pages:


For those who want to learn more, the book "Endless Frontier: Vannevar Bush, Engineer of the American Century" [0] by G. Pascal Zachary is very good. (G. Pascal Zachary also wrote "Showstopper: The Breakneck Race to Create Windows NT and the Next Generation at Microsoft")

There is an audio book version: How to Read a Book, narrated by Edward Holland [0]

[0] https://www.audible.com/pd/How-to-Read-a-Book-Audiobook/B003...

Sadly not available in the UK

If you use audible.com, all you need to do is change the billing country to US. Suddenly all books previously unavailable can be purchased.

Country doesn't affect card payments in my case (Monzo) but worse case scenario you can use points.

Very interesting, thanks.

It was even used in some unexpected places, for example, see the HN discussion about "Apple's libc shells out to Perl to implement wordexp" [0], [1]
