Ever think about how an Apple libc function shells out to Perl https://github.com/Apple-FOSS-Mirror/Libc/blob/master/gen/wordexp.c#L192
Well this is *incredibly* overdue, but it looks like Edmonton’s football team is finally changing its name. https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/bv8ygv/edmontons-football-team-finally-drops-name-report

Interesting Apple Silicon discovery: there’s a flag that exists to determine if your program is running in Rosetta. However, you can’t access it via the commandline `sysctl`, which may be a bug, so your shell script and non-C programs can’t detect this yet. https://developer.apple.com/documentation/apple_silicon/about_the_rosetta_translation_environment
I found out Elemental Force works under Toast so I tried to see if that would run in MAME, and… I can’t seem to get MAME to boot a hard drive image that works in anything else? So weird.
If you have tips on how to properly make a MAME Mac hard drive image using BasiliskII, please let me know! I have files I need to copy into it, so it’s hard to use MAME itself to prep the image.
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! https://developer.apple.com/documentation/driverkit/3433733-mach_timebase_info
