Se da una parte il grande lavoro nella SanitΓ  ha reso chiaro quanto sia importante che sia una e Pubblica, dall'altra alcune maestre sembra si stiano impegnando a far fare brutta figura alla Scuola Pubblica.

Stasera hanno mandato i compiti per 2, due, DUE settimane di pausa per le "vacanze" 🀐 di Pasqua.
Due paginette in croce che in due giorni li abbiam finiti.

E proprio ora che era ripartita una minima routine di 2, due incontri di 1h e mezza in videoconferenza la settimana.

Che delusione profonda 😞

Yesterday for my birthday my family organized a "trip" to Japan ⛩️ for me, including flight: my wife and I passengers and children flight personnel πŸ˜† and then simulated flight with video ✈️

Once we arrived, dinner in Tokyo πŸ—Ό 🍜 !

I love my family! interesting podcast on the concept of antifragility, although the example of pneumonia (look at the date) is now out of place 😢.

TL;DR: antifragile systems are systems that grow stronger because of stress instead of collapsing.

On The Metal: very interesting podcast sponsored by the newborn company.

Step 4) spread garlic over the bread
Step 5) put everything together with more tomato sauce and vegetable broth

Luckily I use btrfs and snapper to keep a few snapshots of my disc, and inside there I could recover the keyring, but I was still missing the password.

That done I worked, had lunch, came back to the keyboard and...

Typed my old password!

So I restored back my password in sync with the keyring, an my laptop was back fully operational!

I later realized that a copy of the backup key is stored in my online password manager too, but nonetheless, thanks !

After the holiday I forgot my laptop user password. Luckily not the disc encryption one, just the user. So I did the live CD dance to mount the disk and reset the user password.

That done I could boot but the keyring was locked, because the password didn't match.

I removed the keyring, and that done I realized that inside I had the encryption key of my backup. And I can't restore the keyring from the backup without that key.

One day you will be touched by the curse of the Senior Developer, half of your team will not do a real review of your code, assuming it is correct, and then you will have to review it twice before assigning it.

Country house: just seen a movie in streaming trough a tethering connection from my home Synology NAS, welcome future! Iliad has been a game chenger

We received a lot of applications :blobaww: for :rust: , choosing the right ones for the schedule will be very hard :loading:

TIL – Using conditional entries in .gitconfig to automatically manage #git identities based on the working directory. Nice!

The Call for Proposals for RustLab 2019 is open, the theme is _Rust at Work_ join us on June 28-29 in Florence

If you have adopted Rust, please share your experience submitting a talk, if you are planning the adoption, join us at the conference!

I have found a dual feeling about code ownership: there is the bad gut 🚫 feeling of defending your precious code, and the good caregiver 🀰 feeling of seeing your code grow robust and maintainable.

Tech Leaders should promote the caregiver ownership, and think in that terms for what enters in the master of a long running project.

-lead -ownership

My wish-list TL;DR
- Partial borrow of structs
- Function like macros (proc_macro_hygiene)
- Const generics
- Established crates (central crates for the ecosystem, shared community effort on them?)
