  1. Respectfully an “E” for effort, the more resources the better. But the challenge is get the knowledge that those resources exist to those who can benefit from them. Adafuit should consider adding an emaul list to inform employers to persons seeking the positions employers need to fill, along with an email list informing those seeking employment of new openings posted.

  2. “I’m looking for a freelancer who’d like to extend the Glasgow Haskell Compiler runtime such that it can execute on the Arduino.”

    Now THAT’s a meta-troll of the first order. I nearly spit out my sip of earl grey.

    But just in case the poster reads HAD and is actually serious (please, sir, may I have another) they should try contacting John Meachum or David Terei. There will be much pointing and giggling, but if someone wants to pay for such nonsense, they’d be the guys.

    But fer pete’s sake, GHC outputs standard C. As in “Hey, it runs on anything with more computing power than a toaster” standard C. I’ve always been against certain people’s inclination to hate on the arduino users, but… this is kinda kinky.

    I have a sneaking suspicion that the designers of the arduino want to be able to say it runs haskell natively. I’m, uh, well…

  3. I remember some people said I was what is wrong with this scene because I said this was the reality of it.

    What is something good to say that sounds less childish than I told you so?

  4. Computer hacking can also lead to other constructive technological developments, since many of the skills developed from hacking apply to more mainstream pursuits. For example, former hackers Dennis Ritchie and Ken Thompson went on to create the UNIX operating system in the 1970s. This system had a huge impact on the development of Linux, a free UNIX-like operating system. Shawn Fanning, the creator of Napster, is another hacker well known for his accomplishments outside of computer hacking.

  5. @Reaper:
    “Note to self: put multiple A9s in a toaster. Find reason.”

    Reason: Dedicate one A9 to control a bank of pinpoint heat sources that allows users to print custom messages on bread. Messages can include weather forecasts, stock information, emergency alerts.

    Bonus points because toaster will now need internet access to get weather information.

    “former hackers Dennis Ritchie and Ken Thompson ”

    Sorry, I didn’t realize this was a consensual product placement for Rafay’s website.
    My mistake!
