We interrupt our regular programming for this extremely important message.

We stand with our black sisters and brothers against the evil that is racism. The recent events of police brutality and oppression against black people have been truly horrifying.

Please take the time to listen to the audio snippet on the #BlackLivesMatter movement from today’s episode. It is a TedX talk by the far more eloquent Kennedy Cook who’s voice and words are more powerful than ours.

We’ve never been very vocal about political issues on Fragmented. But that doesn’t mean we don’t care about these issues. On the contrary! We do our best to have our actions speak louder than our words and let others with first hand experience speak out. Then importantly we aim to listen.

But these aren’t regular times are they? The horrifying brutality we’re seeing against people of color is nauseating. The Covid-19 outbreak has made action particularly difficult so for today we will start with these words.

197: .git internals with Gordon 🔧

Download

OK, If you really want to know how git works, this is the episode for you.
KG talks with his longtime colleague and mentor Gordon McCreight. Gordon is a
wiz in general but his knowledge of git goes deep. So in this episode, KG goes
solo and really dives in-depth about how git works.

Buckle up and listen on; you’ll come out on the outer side with a much
sounder understanding of git.

Objects which are no longer referenced can be evicted with git prune; though this is a low-level operation which is often called from git gc. By default it will not remove commits newer than 2 weeks old, and of course the commits that are reachable from that; so provided the branch (or tag) deleted has recent commits, it will stay around in the git repository for up two a fortnight afterwards.
