Looking for a small to medium sized #golang project to review live on a Twitch stream. Who's brave enough? 😂

The plan isn't to criticize whatever it is you're working on, but to demo how I approach new projects and codebases, and to constructively show how one can easily improve their Go projects with the help of a few CLI tools. Don't be shy!

Balance of Power has randomly become my favourite ELO album, thanks to the peculiar mental machinations that brought you my love of Depeche Mode’s A Broken Frame, Yazoo’s You And Me Both, and Queen’s Hot Space

Derpy Matt left his USB-C charge cable... somewhere. No laptop for Matt today.

once again I find myself singing Beauty And The Beast, but with the lyrics changed to just 'Condoleezza Rice'

oh, that's good. GCC crashed trying to do ./configure stuff for compiling GCC. Oh GCC.

today on Building Lots Of Compilers:

- ran out of hard drive space because the default clang9+ build is 50-60 GIGABYTES of build tree
- GCC4.9 compile failed with 'configure: error: cannot compute suffix of object files: cannot compile', which is quite possibly the most 'seriously?' compiler error I've seen so far

Remind me to write do one or more of the following in re my old compiler adventures: write a blog post; make any patches public; make a script that tries auto-fetching and/or compiling the compilers in a principled manner…

update: after having the Pi compile gcc overnight, I stupidly moved the build directory before make install-ing and nearly ended up building it again in the autotools confusion

some things make me stop and wonder what I'm doing with my life

compiling GCC on a Raspberry Pi is one of them
