      bobjonkman favorited something by lxo: what's most incredible about this date representation is that it was introduced after Y2K. it wouldn't have worked up to [19]99 think about it. someone implemented that after all the many years of preparation and patching decades-old systems for Y2K, knowing (or, worse, without realizing) that it had at most […]

      From what I can tell, they were using the decimal digits of the 32-bit number as a sort of BCD, with the base10 digits representing portions of the date.

      Some days I'm glad my instance of #GNUsocial doesn't support #ActivityPub and isolates me from the idiocy on Mastodon of which I already get plenty from #Birdsite.

      bobjonkman favorited something by clacke: @Bob Jonkman It is highly character-driven.It uses key characters, the Empire, the exile, Terminus, Psychohistory, two kingdoms instead of the Four Kingdoms and some echoes of half of the first book and fainter echoes from other parts of the series, while the main story maps roughly to half the first […]

      Don't get me wrong, I think Foundation is one of the greatest SF stories ever written. And I hadn't heard there was a series, must find out when and where it airs... !SciFi @clacke
