I just published the first (0.1.0) release of nyasm, a toy 6502 assembler I've been developing in Rust! it's missing some features at the moment, and it's probably not ready for production use yet (if it will ever be), but it should at least be somewhat usable right now (I've been able to get valid NES binaries out of it)
And the issues with lengthy build times are well known and caused by some fundamental decisions made by the Rust team... every dependency has to be delivered as source code and compiled on the target machine... leading to ~400 dependencies for Shortwave (a small app for listening to Internet radio). Not sure what it would take to have more sophisticated apps such as office suites, graphic editors or OSes build with it... so I can understand those complaints from package maintainers...
As much as I would like to love #Rust it sometimes fires back to me the hard way... today I just tried to update my Shortwave app from AUR and it stopped short... even though the repo mentions Rust 1.48+ and I’ve had 1.50 from the Manjaro repos some of its dependencies no longer compiles successfully... upgrading to 1.51 (released just 2 weeks ago) solved the build issues... beside that the release build took AGES... (for a small tool such as this one)... actually it was more than 20 mins... 1/2
This is a long shot, but I want to put the power of social media and federation to the test.
My son wants to become a commercial airline pilot when he’s grown up. It would be awesome if we could find a commercial pilot in the fediverse that we can follow and ask questions of.
If everyone who reads this could boost it, it would be much appreciated and it would mean the world to my son if he could get in touch with a real-life commercial pilot! ✈️
I have been testing Google Stadia lately. I have a 600Mbit fiber line and I must say unfortunately Stadia is not ready for prime time. Every evening starting around 7-8pm Stadia games become unplayable. Before7pm and after 11pm it works great. Even shooter like Borderlands3 or Destiny2 work flawlessly at 4k with HDR, at least from my point of view. Next on my cloud gaming list is shadow.tech.
