beyond a joke level take
"All compilers tend to generate assembly, so I cut out the middle men and program directly in assembly"
"All processors tend to use transistors, so I cut out the middle men and make my own transistors from silicon doping"
If capitalism is mindless growth, this is mindless degrowth? I dunno. Is there another name for it?
There's this weird thing I'm trying to work out for an article. Bookchin invokes a concept of "futurism" where the present situation is extrapolated and made "bigger", with complete disregard to how that would work. It is assumed people suffer accordingly.
There's this sort of reverse futurism, I think, where the present situation is made "smaller", but the present does not allow for much to be done with small things. People, again, suffer accordingly, as they don't achieve "more with less."
Apparently https://quickref.common-lisp.net/one-more-re-nightmare.html is "The one-more-re-nightmare Reference Manual". First, no it isn't, the actual one lives on applied-langua.ge, and the only sections that aren't implementation details are 2.1, 5.1 and 6.1. Quite disappointing.
The interesting thing, I think, is that if unsafe operations are "cheaper", then there is literally a financial incentive to shoot yourself in the foot.
I found a list of mishaps in the Ethereum VM and/or Solidity compiler, so I decided to compare to the Netfarm VM and Slacker compiler.
it has been announced that this paper had a systemic error wherein the GCs reported 60% too much memory used https://twitter.com/stevemblackburn/status/1331739091159793665

Sometimes I make the computer do things
Apparently works on distributed systems, compilers, garbage collection and music.
