[folding my hands together] so who was going to tell me that impl Trait syntax was a thing in parameters or was i supposed to find that out reading lecture notes myself

me: yes, bumping down the version of this crate is a small change
the small change: x and y fields of a 2d vector can no longer be accessed by their fields, every instance of this has to be replaced with x(), y(), set_x(), set_y(), etc

i feel so bad for rust-analyzer whenever im messing around with dependencies bc i'm just hitting the big red button that says "build!!!" again and again

ssh tech mystery, help? 

For a few months now, when I ssh to one particular machine from Win10 via Putty or WinSCP, after entering valid credentials I get this error: "remote side unexpectedly closed network connection." For Putty, this happens on stable 0.74, the current dev snapshot, and even an older version, 0.60. WinSCP is the latest stable version.

When I ssh from the same machine, booted into linux, it works fine.

I found only unanswered support threads googling for the error message.

“The term ‘diversity’ has been understood as a replacement term, taking the place of earlier terms such as ‘equal opportunities’ or ‘antiracism’... There is a great deal of suspicion within [the HE sector] that the term ‘diversity’ is an import... critics suggest that the increasing use of the language of diversity reflects the spread of of a US managerial discourse... diversity can be used as a way of making the university into a marketplace.”

"And I compose the poem
a silence broken like a dog's
tooth drips in baroque
words dressed in hyena's blood
the night traces dead
leaves on our walls
and on our walls shivers
a skeletal dream
that harbors
all the dead of our Atlantic sea."
-- A "photogram" from Moroccan poet Ahmed Bouanani, translated from the French by Emma Ramadan
