If you think fertilized eggs are people but women who've walked their kids 2,000 miles aren't, stop pretending your concerns are religious.

Late night, root access, a couple beers and trying to GSD so I can actually go on vacation starting in the am. What could go wrong....

Thank god the entire industry hasn't decided to revolve around Blink/Chromium for 95% of the web's browser traffic, or else Google would have an unlimited ability to push forward whatever bullshit standard they wanted.

Wait hold on, my producer is telling me something [places finger on my ear piece]

Oh no.

You'd think by my late 50's I wouldn't be finding poignant meaning to my current job situation in teen-age angst songs.

People get productive when they can focus uninterrupted on one thing at a time. That's not exceptional. It's how the mind works.

What we call "hyperproductivity" is the norm. Your planning and meeting culture is the problem.

Yesterday's interview question:

"What do you look for in a new system?"

Better answer I thought up 10 hours later:

empathy

I'd probably do a lot better in interviews if I could just transmit messages back to myself in time.

Submitting the report to Barr is only the first step. Mueller also has to get the margins approved by the DoJ librarian and pay any outstanding fees before he can officially graduate.

The fastest and most efficient way to kill a software engineer's professional confidence: put them through the hiring process.

Brief reminder that unless you are part of the relatively small group of people directly affected by the current crisis, you will not benefit from keeping up to date on the latest developments, nor does that help anyone else.

If the news or related social media is causing you distress, the best thing you can do is to turn it off. Better quality summaries will be there for you tomorrow.

If your a bike racing fan, this looks like fun and bit different from usual fantasy bike racing sites. rouleurderby.com/

Today's dose of sysadmin horror. apt-get supports regexp, if you fat finger a version, you get all the packages. ( i.e. apt-get install ruby2. ) BTW thats' not even sane regexp...

My take on DoH is that it will end up being used in a user-hostile to prevent DNS-based ad/tracker blocking solutions like pihole. With DNS over 53/UDP, DNS based ad-blocking solutions are a trivial firewall rule that can be made even on consumer routers.

With DNS over TLS, it's only a matter of time until adtech vendors and other privacy-invading beacons are using DoH/DoT to prevent users from inspecting & blocking these beacons through certificate pinning + traffic obfuscation.
