SourceForge, the code repository site owned by Slashdot Media, has apparently seized control of the account hosting GIMP for Windows on the service, according to e-mails and discussions amongst members of the GIMP community—locking out GIMP's lead Windows developer. And now anyone downloading the Windows version of the open source image editing tool from SourceForge gets the software wrapped in an installer replete with advertisements.

What I remember is that it featured a rather eye-watering construction of two overlapping switch statements (?) which was syntactically legal, but perhaps shouldn't have been.
Reminds me of this monstrosity. It's not two overlapping switch statements, but a switch entangled with a do
astalavista.box.sk might be interested in that algorithm.
Ah, memories. The AstaLaVista search engine was such an important tool back in the day.
Hard to believe it was created 20 years ago.
I feel old.
Ah. Well played.
I really need to look at the dates more. Might explain some of the design documents in our company...
I don't think that's a viable solution to the OP's issue ("IPv6 addresses are so long that you can't remember them"). From the RFC:
For example, consider the address shown above
Then, when encoded as specified above, this becomes:
It's shorter, yes, but much harder to memorize. Especially when this address can be abbreviated to
The author's views about his suggestion's efficiency are also... interesting:
Many current processors do not find 128 bit integer arithmetic, as
required for this technique, a trivial operation. This is not
considered a serious drawback in the representation, but a flaw of
the processor designs.
So, humans don't find this format easy to deal with, and neither do machines.
Why not just call it an unrequested global energy surplus?
Language like this makes me want to engage in an involuntary personal protein spill...
Oh. Right. Damn, I should have noticed that. I'm sorry.
I just saw that all of your links were marked as "read" and didn't bother to check any further. Hats off to you, I have been well and truly trolled.

I've noticed this kind of crap more and more often lately, usually as one of the "preferred" methods of installation for projects on GitHub. Who in their right mind would run that? There's a reason why we have package systems and a method of signing said packages. Blindly trusting some website with root shell access... boggles my mind.
Easy my ass. GP is absolutely correct, they completely fail to give a summary of what a FreedomBox is and why we should care. I've read those pages you linked and there is no summary. The closest thing I could find are links to video presentations with titles like "FreedomBox Update", "FreedomBox 1.0" and "Freedom, out of the box!".
