Hating JWZ now illegal in Georgia

Plate number spurs state to cut out HA8
Gumina's getting a new plate, and the one he has will be taken out of circulation.

What's more, the state will stop issuing prestige plates - also called vanity or personalized plates - that start with HA8 or H8, revenue department spokesman Charles Willey said.

"Hate has become a very popular prefix to a vanity plate," ADL spokesman Bill Nigut said. "I just don't think there's room for that in our civil discourse."

mixtape 006

Please enjoy jwz mixtape 006.

It is perhaps a bit different than what you have come to expect so far.

It is also composed of music that is not terribly recent, as I've pretty much lost track of releases in this style in the last few years. Please to be making the suggestions.

iPhone Dali Clock

Mike Akers ported Dali Clock to the iPhone. He says, "it's now installable via Installer.app, in the Utilities section."

I don't have (and don't want) an iPhone* so I don't know what that means, but presumably those of you who do, do.



* Hate the on-screen keyboard, find their policy of making third-party software difficult to install to be offensive.

10.5.[01] broke ptys

Hey, I think I found a kernel bug. It's preventing the "Phosphor" screen saver (and others) from working properly on 10.5. As far as I can tell, if you have a pipe, and the process on the other end exits, the pipe flushes: all bytes that have been written to the pipe from the child but not yet read by the parent vanish. I reported it to Apple (5606018); no response yet.

<LJ-CUT text=" --More--(33%) ">


/* gcc test.c -lutil */

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <util.h>

static int
do_fork(void)
{
int fd = -1;
pid_t pid;

if ((pid = forkpty(&fd, NULL, NULL, NULL)) < 0)
perror("forkpty");
else if (!pid)
{
printf ("0123456789\n");

/* #### Uncommenting this makes it work! */
/* sleep(20); */

exit (0);
}

return fd;
}


int
main (int argc, char **argv)
{
char s[1024];
int n;
int fd = do_fork();

/* On 10.4, this prints the whole 10 character line, 1 char per second.
On 10.5, it prints 1 character and stops.
*/
do {
n = read (fd, s, 1);
if (n > 0) fprintf (stderr, "%c", *s);
sleep (1);
} while (n > 0);

return 0;
}


Update, 2 Sep 2009: Still broken in exactly the same way in 10.6.
(And also 10.7.)
