    I randomly clicked on this one: https://github.com/ESWAT/john-carmack-plan-archive/blob/mast...

    > Anna Kang left Id a couple weeks ago to found her own company - Fountainhead Entertainment.

    > It wasn't generally discussed during her time at Id, but we had been going out when she joined the company, and we were engaged earlier this year. We are getting married next month, and honeymooning in Hawaii. At her thoughtful suggestion, we are shipping a workstation out with us, so I don't fall into some programming-deprivation state. How great is that? :)

  • GitHub repo bongo.cat

    Hit the bongos like Bongo Cat!

  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

  • GitHub repo mdtimesheet

    Calculates time spent on projects, based on a markdown .plan style timesheet file.

    As a side note, I was capturing all my side projects via plan style files,

    so I wrote a time tracker for it following a simple format that would calculate roughly how long I spent on each project.


  • GitHub repo projectm

    projectM - cross-platform music visualization. Open-source and Milkdrop-compatible (by hashFactory)

  • GitHub repo Lobsters

    Computing-focused community centered around link aggregation and discussion

  • GitHub repo ntfy

    Send push notifications to your phone or desktop using PUT/POST (by binwiederhier)

    > You could message the owner of phone directly through a URL. The request would be handled by server on phone!

    I know it's not like a web server on the phone or anything, and likely questionable to mention it at all (since I made it), but I made a thing that lets you send notifications to a phone (or desktop) via curl [0] via a simple PUT or POST. It's definitely not a cool protocol since it's simple HTTP, but it's in the spirit of other Unix tools since it's just one thing to do one job.

  • GitHub repo msquic

    Cross-platform, C implementation of the IETF QUIC protocol.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • GitHub repo wdt

    Warp speed Data Transfer (WDT) is an embeddedable library (and command line tool) aiming to transfer data between 2 systems as fast as possible over multiple TCP paths.

    I like the way you're thinking here, I think the limitations you mentioned with gemini may stand... for me it's kind of like the limitations generally speaking with markdown. Doesn't leave much room for doing stuff like parsing the raw data when they aren't in a hierarchical structure with xpaths you can target and stuff like that, it just throws out so much baby with the bathwater that I'm ready to scream infanticide.

    Any thoughts on fast experimental protocols like warp data transfer [1] or fast and secure protocol [2] ? I know they're not exactly the most open things or wellsupported in terms of what you're looking for but I've been really wondering when we're going to start seeing pressure to relieve network congestion using stuff like this.

  • GitHub repo jmap

    JSON Meta Application Protocol Specification (JMAP)

  • GitHub repo finger.farm
