The Fading Battlefields of World War I (32 photos)

3 Shares

This year will mark the passing of a full century since the end of World War I—a hundred years since the “War to End All Wars.” In that time, much of the battle-ravaged landscape along the Western Front has been reclaimed by nature, or returned to farmland, and the scars of the war are disappearing. Some zones remain toxic a century later, and others are still littered with unexploded ordnance, closed off to the public. But across France and Belgium, significant battlefields and ruins were preserved as monuments, and farm fields that became battlegrounds ended up as vast cemeteries. In these places, the visible physical damage to the landscape remains as evidence of the phenomenal violence and destruction that took so many lives so long ago.

A drone's-eye view of the preserved World War I battlefield at the Beaumont-Hamel Newfoundland Monument in Beaumont-Hamel, France, on June 10, 2016. The preserved trenches and craters are are part of the grounds on which the Newfoundland Regiment made their unsuccessful attack on July 1, 1916, the opening day of the Battle of the Somme. (AP)

Irreal: Emacs 26.1 Is Out

1 Share

Nico Petton tweets the good news:

I’ve already downloaded, compiled, and installed it and am writing this with the new version.

If you’re on macOS, here’s my recipe for the compilation and installation:

configure --with-ns CFLAGS="-g3 -O2 -I /usr/local/include/libxml2"
make
make install
make install-info
sudo mv nextstep/Emacs.app/ /Applications/Emacs.app

The last time I installed Emacs, the last step in the recipe was

sudo cp -R nextstep/Emacs.app/ /Applications/

but this time macOS complained so I used the mv instead.

If you’ve got macOS set to not run “unknown applications” and get an error message when you try to run it, follow these directions.
