    @npmccallum Re: enarx/enarx#369 I'm trying to figure out what you meant here: "instead track the offset and convert a subslice to a pointer" - I need to get the initial address of the buffer area from somewhere or calculate it from the untrusted region, but that's all still pointer math...
    Nathaniel McCallum
    @npmccallum
    let mut offset = 0;
    for ... {
        uiovec.buff = &untrusted[offset..];
        uiovec.size = t.size;
        offset += t.size;
    }
    I'm sure the names aren't correct, but that is the idea.
    I think you can cast a slice to a pointer. If not, there should be an as_mut() method.

    @npmccallum That worked for getting rid of the first unsafe block; however, I can't remove the second one because the ret value is generated inside an unsafe block due to the syscall and the rest of the code is executed based on the value of ret.

    @lkatalin Let's see what it looks like.

    @axelsimon It looks like matrix.org allows you to preview a channel without logging in.
    @axelsimon But you have to log in to chat.

    @axelsimon I was able to find the new mobile app (RiotX) on the App Store as well.

    the virt team uses matrix.org and the regular Riot.im app
    but traffic spikes mostly during kvm forum :)

    @whitebrandy What's your experience with it?
    Bandan Das
    @whitebrandy
    @npmccallum i think it's good and i have the Android app, which is functional
    @npmccallum i do remember us having issues with encryption which was optional
    from what i remember, we had to turn encryption off in the room

    @mbestavros
    Anyone with the iOS app have any issues?
    axel simon
    @axelsimon
    as far as i know, the iOS version and Android version are very similar (if not essentially the same) as built from the same SDK
    otherwise, i'd say that @whitebrandy's comments are spot on
    encryption has been a work in progress for a while
    it's progressed leaps and bounds in the past couple years however, to the point we are weeks/month(s) away from the matrix team flipping the switch and enabling E2E encryption on all new 1-1 chats
    it's always going to be a choice on rooms, as some rooms are small and some big, and it makes little sense in what are public rooms to add the overhead of encrypting each message for every device of every user in a room. If it's public, it probably doesn't need encryption (though it can still be enabled)
    @mbestavros RiotX has some nice new things, like swiping on a message to reply to that message, but it's missing other things like, hmm, answering an audio call :)

    I'm not super impressed by matrix ATM.
    Functionality is kind of simple. UI is often non-intuitive.
    Seems slow.
    Maybe I'd get a better experience with the Android client.
    axel simon
    @axelsimon
    UI is a pain point, the next version of Riot should fix that (/ improve it a lot)
    functionality is actually quite rich, you can use markdown for text, insert pictures /videos, make calls, use sticker packs
    Mark Bestavros
    @mbestavros
    We should not make decisions based on promised features, IMO
    axel simon
    @axelsimon
    but i fully agree it feels a bit slow sometimes (the downside of how their state-resolution algorithm works for now, from what i understand)
    Mark Bestavros
    @mbestavros
    I agree with Nathaniel that it's not very good UX
    axel simon
    @axelsimon
    it's not that bad, but i don't disagree with you fundamentally
    the slowness would also be due to being on the main, overloaded server
    state-resolution would be faster if we were all on the same server
    i see your point @mbestavros, i'm clearly biased by the fact i've met the team and have a good opinion of them and their intentions
    the Android client will feel mostly the same i think
    axel simon
    @axelsimon
    just tried to explain "state-resolution" to my girlfriend :D
    (i think it went well)

    sorry to hear, hope it goes well!

    oh, good luck! hope all will be fine!

    (someone from the matrix team just confirmed matrix.org is seeing a lot of trafic this month and "if you're using matrix.org atm you're going to have a bad time")

    oh this easy, just run our own matrix server! :)

    @axelsimon @haraldh Thanks. All is fine. Ended up being just a rock stuck against the brake rotor.
