Why Roman Egypt Was Such a Strange Province

acoup.blog — Welcome back! We are back from our November hiatus and thus back to regular weekly posts! This week we’re going to answer the runner-up question in the last ACOUP Senate poll (polls in which you too can vote if you become a pater aut mater conscriptus via Patreon).

How to JIT – An Introduction

thegreenplace.net — When I wrote the introductory article for libjit, I aimed it at programmers who know what JITs are, at least to some extent. I did mention what a JIT is, but only very briefly. The purpose of this article is to provide a better introductory overview of JITing, with code samples that don't rely on any libraries. JIT, 11

Fire and Homo Naledi

worldofpaleoanthropology.org — Well, here we are! Today is the big day when we will learn quite a few new details about the enigmatic Homo naledi. Found deep in the African cave system dubbed “Rising Star,”; mysterious bones and remains were found. This was back in 2013, and a great deal has happened since; as I am writing this, I am awaiting Dr. Lee Berger, the lead on the naledi team, to announce new findings and the future of the exploration of the human past. I will cover all the details as they come out today and publish this article ASAP. There are so many things that could be announced today, I have a few ideas we can discuss later after the announcements have been made, but it’s fun to guess!  HOMO, 13

If PHP Were British (2011)

aloneonahill.com — When Rasmus Lerdorf first put PHP together, he - quite sensibly, despite his heritage - chose not to write it in Greenlandic or Danish. Good job too - that would have been rather unpleasant to work with. He opted instead, being in Canada, for a more local tongue. No, not French. Not Canadian English either. No, he went for that bastard dialect of the Queen's English commonly referred to as "US English". PHP, 21

Debunking CISC vs. RISC code density

bitsnbites.eu — A long standing misconception that dates back to the RISC vs CISC debate of the 1980’s is that CISC ISA:s yield better machine code density than RISC ISA:s. At the time that was mostly true, but today (2022) the situation is different and such claims are no longer automatically true. Let us dissect the matter… DEBUNKING, 23

The Audacity of Piping Curl to Bash

yotam.net — It seems more and more common, at least in the self-hosted community, to provide two methods of installations: Docker or a shell script installer. It seems that many new projects don’t even bother with a native package manager, such as dpkg or rpm, which makes me reluctant to use them. AUDACITY, 28
