Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Eich The Fool? I thought not. It’s not a story the Jedi would tell you. It’s a Web legend. Darth Eich was a Dark Lord of the Web, so powerful that he could use script tags in HTML to influence the client's browser to execute arbitrary code… Fortunately, nerds reverse engineered everything he wrote, replaced javascript with wasm, then killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from compiled languages, but not himself.

of course "memory safety" doesn't solve everything but if we can remove most of the stupidly predictable flaws let's fucking do it

and if someone wanted to bolt a magical static analysis tool that removes half the bugs to a c compiler let's fucking do it too

it's just that rust is made for that to work nicely from the start

I work for a small company that designs and manufactures a fair amount of high-tech radio gear in the United States. Like, our products are designed in Rochester NY, built in a factory in the SF Bay area, warehoused in NYC, and sold around the world.

We may not be able to do this any more. Pretty much all of our raw materials are going to get 25% more expensive in a few weeks. Only way around it? Move manufacturing out of the US.

Hey, you can get @viTekiM 's R-COIL for $2 right now.

vectorhat.itch.io/r-coil

R-COIL is "what if Asteroids were 870% cooler and had particle effects?". It's really fun.

It also has a mode where you don't have to worry about lives or scoreboards, you can just shoot asteroids and alien ships to your heart's content. It's great stress relief.
