From Birbsite: "Just got out of P/T conferences for Lars (8). Apparently, last week he was taking a math test on a computer at school. There was a problem he didn't like so he went in and deleted the code for that problem so it would disappear from the test. I'm horrified and proud? Horriproud?"

Instance admin just lost their job, might need help 

Mstdn.social is one of the largest and nicest instances on the Fediverse, run by an enthusiastic admin called @stux

Unfortunately Stux has today found out that they are fired from their day job 😞

However, by happy coincidence, Stux had just set up a hosting company. If you need web hosting, domain names etc please consider using Stuxhost so that Stux can continue working:

Anyone want to chime in with reviews of Arch running on particular hardware?

I am getting to the point where there are more things that work via ssh to my Linux box than there are that work flawlessly on my phone and I fear I'm going to soon be the guy that runs a command line application to dial 911.

Fun fact: 90% of new NYC apartments are occupied solely by bags of money. No people, no furniture. Just a few bags of money in the middle of the floor 💰 💰 💰

I have had it with NYC landlords. Specifically, right now, with the illegal & unenforceable provisions they put in leases. Have spent all day enumerating these.

Is Europe better for tenants? It must be. Send help 👹 😜

CommonJS → ECMAScript Modules (ESM) in Node.js

I hope this post with my experiences from yesterday’s refactor are helpful for you if and when you undertake a similar task.

#CommonJS #ESM #ECMAScriptModules #NodeJS #JS #JavaScript

@kensanata 😂You’re right about that, although people who like Perl like it a lot. I don’t like JS or Ruby and now I’m learning Go and it’s ok.

It only took 3yrs but I zapped my DigitalOcean account! I've got a couple of services up on the new Linode via (h/t @rysiek).

Look, this doesn't hurt DigitalOcean. I know that. But it's not that they denied me a job when I really needed one, but they lied about the reason.

I'm kinda eager to rig up an engine that takes Markdown and posts it to both and converts it to text/ . I'd be more eager if I had some content :/ trololo
