There’s a function you can call, `mach_timebase_info`, which will provide you the fraction to use to convert `mach_absolute_time`’s units into seconds. Please use that instead of hardcoding assumptions! developer.apple.com/documentat

PSA for Apple Silicon devs: the timebase format used by `mach_absolute_time` is different than on Intel. If your code has been assuming that both the numerator and denominator are always 1, your code is wrong and is going to fail to work as intended on ARM macOS.

Canadian friends: if you have a copy you’d be willing to sell of the sci-fi anthology Far Futures (edited by Gregory Benson), please let me know. I need it for a research project, and can only find copies in the US - which would take forever to make it to Canada right now.

Look at this. This is describing a CEO who was rightfully criticized in the media for her horrific treatment of her employees. Fellow Silicon Valley people are treating her as an innocent victim being bullied by reporters. vice.com/en_us/article/n7w3zw/

I can’t get over this Vice story. Rich Silicon Valley people are *so* fragile and melt down over the slightest bit of criticism. vice.com/en_us/article/n7w3zw/

Today’s fun: for a post I’m working on, I need to track down a copy of Greg Bear’s novel Judgment Engine. Looks like it’s never been published digitally, and the copy I have is in a non-English language that I don’t read…

I’m never not thinking about the AbstractSingletonProxyFactoryBean, which is a convenient proxy factory bean superclass for proxy factory beans that create only singletons docs.spring.io/spring-framewor

Anyone have experience setting up CD-ROM images with SCSI2SD? On Mac System 7, I’m trying to have a hard drive set up on device 0 and a CD-ROM on device 1. Hard drive works but CD’s not detected.

Heads up: if you’re building your software on the first beta of Big Sur, the stable version of CMake will not work. 3.18.0 will fix this, and you can use the RC until the final release is available.
