Spent three hours across two sessions this weekend reading documentation, experimenting, and searching the web for a programming solution that in the end only required a single line of code to change.
I often wonder if a formal education in computer science would alleiviate those long periods of hunt and peck learning.
Drive wasn't great. The desktop client ran at 100% CPU on MacOS even when idle.
Puppeteer eatin' all my disk space, crashin' my server!
I'm done with Gentoo. Constantly getting manifest verification mismatches when syncing. When that does work, simple emerge -p world breaks i3/X, creates circular dependencies, and the list goes on.
It's a shame because Gentoo is a great lightweight option for older hardware like i386 and PPC. (Not sure there are any other 32-bit PPC options left.) Used to be rock solid back in the day. Not sure what's happened the last several years. 😞
The most surprising thing about eating fresh veggies straight from the garden is always how warm they are when taking that first bite. #gardening
It can't be overstated how many hours web developers spent trying to bend IE to some semblance of standards compliance. The years in which IE6-9 reigned were rife with frustration across the community of developers championing web standards. .
Still can't believe IE is really officially sunset. It's been a non-issue for several years, but seeing that news yesterday was such a relief. https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2022/06/remembering-internet-explorer-the-now-dead-browser-that-once-powered-the-internet/
On the upside, this SSD is super fast. Can’t believe I lived with that slow old hard drive for so long. KDE Neon looks great. Lots of nice little touches. This is my first time using KDE in 10+ years. It’s completely different. https://mastodon.technology/media/yc8S-H04HRuDZjJzbew https://mastodon.technology/media/6iALThGRpjoZ79QiD2Y
This Ventless gas log unit is 23 years old. 😬 Today I disconnected, disassembled, and deep cleaned the unit and walls. Also scrubbed layers and layers of soot off the logs. We’ve lived in the house for 4 years. Prior to cleaning, running this thing stunk and caused my eyes to burn. Now it seems to be good as new! https://mastodon.technology/media/7_OrNmkJs6p4dqp4gIA
