These are my cyberpunk watermelons.
What make them so cyberpunk you may ask?

They listen to a lot of synthwave. 😎

So a dev writes a blog post about “Fast : Competing with C at parsing XML”¹ but returns 404 for the feed url² advertised on his site³.

Yeah, true, the fastest XML parsing is when there is no XML to parse⸮. Eh, those clever Haskell folks.

“It looks like that YouTube shipped a new obfuscated JS player” ― github.com/rg3/youtube-dl/issu

Without youtube-dl I will stop using . That’s all.
The last stronghold of Google in my dominion.

That feeling when with over 2k tabs is not the biggest memory hog on your system.

This is how modern web (i.e. ) looks like:

“Haskell library licenses is approximately:

BSD-3-Clause: 67%
MIT: 20%
Apache-2.0: < 2%”

*For me* this is the biggest flaw in ecosystem. 🤭

(Some folks are even surprised that now commercial entities try to dictate how Haskell ecosystem should look like. I call them Stuckers. Cute name.)

Please, consider using reciprocal licenses to resist Big Corp. Look how Google is allergic to AGPL. This shit works folks. Use it.
