The US is devolving into a straight up war zone between police and citizens.

tfw when your "massive show of force" is merely a pitiful show of impotent rage

now going through the same "we've fired/put on paid leave the officers but they will face no consequences for their crimes" cycle again, except compressed into about 12 hours

"but won't someone think of the poor corporations" is a fucking bad take

also, they haven't felt shit, look at the stock market

I'll second Synology

I've deployed open media vault, free nas and rolled my own. All are a LOT more thinking and fiddly than most people need or want.

Synology Just Work ™️ and NOBODY has ever come back to me after they researched and ultimately bought one.

I recommend the ones with an x86 processor if you need some 'oomph' ; the arm based ones are solid but aren't as fast or flexibly for some of the add-ons I've heard.

If you're focused on a full OSS/FOSS/OSHW solution look at open media vault for arm boards (use btrfs) or free nas on x86 (it's zfs). After that you're into a linux box running openzfs or similar to get good storage safety.

the ability for politicians to talk so fucking much without saying a damned thing is astounding


I am obligated to call you out: You should have shut down the_donald instead of amplifying it and its hate, racism, and violence. So much of what is happening now lies at your feet. You don't get to say BLM when reddit nurtures and monetizes white supremacy and hate all day long


lol governors don't want trump showing up to their state and stirring up shit there

"Dark Mode" should be the DEFAULT *everywhere* 

I have no idea why the use of black text on a white background became so prevalent in software design; it's so much harder on your eye than white/grey text on a black background.

@Blackknight Plus no Dockerfile crap. Just setup a rootfs on btrfs and you have change control and easy snapshots/backups that are atomic.

@Blackknight ... there are dozens of container things that follow OCI spec these days. Personally, I opt for not installing additional stuff; I use systemd-nspawn and machinectl, because they’re already there, and containers can be treated like any regular dæmon.

@Blackknight I *love* my Drobo 5N. It currently houses 8 TB, but I hope to get a payday soon and max it out soon.

The way things are going, by the time that happens, I’ll be able to put 64 TB of SSD storage in it. 🤣

By the time I finish moving applications to docker there will be something else out to replace it.

Check out Vimville. It's not far from the shell station.

I like you,, but not this much.

So, I just signed up for a account, and it has automatically suggested that I subscribe to r/programming, r/linux, r/Bitcoin, r/dataisbeautiful, and r/archlinux.

There is absolutely no way that is random, and that's fucking creepy.
