Crate of the Week

Quote of the Week

fzammetti: Am I the only one that finds highly ironic the naming of something that's supposed to be new and cutting-edge after a substance universally synonymous with old, dilapidated and broken down?

paperelectron: Rust is as close to the bare metal as you can get.

On /r/programming.
