Human body is 70% of water so we’re basically cucumbers with anxiety.

I’m not exaggerating when I say I’ve concluded that if everyone in the Open Source Community acted like these folks we’d have to rename it the Open Source Get-Off-My-Lawn

If you ever wonder why Mastodon does not have (and does not need) quote-toots…well, just remember what it did to Twitter: theringer.com/tech/2018/5/2/17

Mattatobin, who quickly made himself infamous among the OpenBSD community, has started pushing around users too.

Something about these Palemoon folks really gets under my skin, to put it mildly.


Has IMAP for Gmail been slow as crap for anyone else recently?

Just discovered wiki.znc.in/ZNC exists, so now I’m running an instance as my IRC bouncer, which means I can use the client of my choice for a given platform instead of being constrained to Irssi on Tmux.

Why, because IRC!

On a tangentially-related-at-best note, we all agree the fsck command looks really funny, right?

TFW you realize the DB backing just about everything on your server won't start, and then you realize the package maintainer has already addressed the issue and the fix is just to update.

I mean, I'm glad it was handled quickly. Just not sure how a package that wouldn't even start got pushed out at all.

Up and running w/ X, 315MB of RAM used. Just sayin'.

@trevdev, I think we had a conversation about this recently.

@ashfurrow I seem to be having problems connecting over HTTPS since you rebooted yesterday.

And once again Tim Pope shows us all how to use Vim and craft a pun at the same time.


I think it’s funny that ‘implicit’ is an explicit keyword in C#

Remember what Stallman did ~30 years ago when proprietary software dominated, he didn't recommended abstinence he came up with a positive answer aka Free Software. We need to do the same with today's evolving technology (cloud, saas, IoT, whatever). Ignoring it will change nothing we have to get engaged and shape it in a freedom and privacy respecting way.

After trying Zsh for a couple of months, the only persuasive reason I’ve found to stick with it vs Bash is that the tab completion is genuinely faster in some situations (e.g., “systemctl restart n[tab]”).

OTOH, in other cases the tab completion is annoyingly deficient. Forget trying to complete a file path in your Git repo if the .git folder isn’t in the normal location (which I do with my dotfiles).

I’m a completist, which for better or worse means I’m considering replacing the OS on my gateway router with as well.

Step 1, spin up a VM and learn how to use nftables.

This might be my most boring toot

Wish Mastodon had an option for plain text email notifications.
