Refreshed my personal site. It’s now much simpler and, thanks to only having my headshot on the about page, the typical load went from ~200kb to less than 10!

Now I just need to write more :blobcat:

I feel like in the past 5 years or so I've come to appreciate just how many fucked up situations are due to the UK deciding to draw a line somewhere on the globe as a way of punishing people they colonised.

In other news, staying up to replace all my fucking 2 factor codes

Fucking... why does locking the bootloader wipe your device man. That makes no sense.

little did you know, this is just a viral marketing stunt before the launch of Facebook 2

I was today years old when I learned MATLAB has an import statement???

Prepping an LiveUSB before I head home so I can wipe and recycle my old laptops. Gotta help clear out that attic.

Just realised I have enough holiday left to take fully a third of the remaining year off :blobpeek:

Bitbucket has started emailing me when I close or approve PRs and this is doing immense psychic damage.

Every now and again I see some bullshit scroll by about NFTs and the like and I feel increasingly certain in my decision to never properly learn what they are or how they work.

As the techie in the family, I think a lot about how much emphasis folks in places like this place on self-hosting and how high the barriers still are to that.

And that makes me think, there must be a _bunch_ of research on the role of trust in network administration, right? Surely going back to the BBS days? Like, both from a technical and sociological standpoint, how can one live their life safely online when someone else has the keys?


Thank you to my colleagues for sharing this beautiful piece of Belgian culture with me

Anyone have any notes on stopping a container from restarting _without_ starting the docker daemon?

Chasing a very weird issue where the docker daemon causes a Raspberry Pi to totally lock up on start. Htop shows the process in uninterruptible sleep with very little CPU time, so seems like it hits some kind of io lock?

I wanted to be kind of productive today but ended up watching Nasu: Summer In Andalusia and cooking instead.

10/10 would do again

Year progress: ▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒░░░░░░░ 69.0%

Say I have a bunch of Key-Value data and I want to allow users to match, both precisely and fuzzily, on different combinations. The goal is to implement a 'most-precise match wins' kind of config for different sets of data à la prometheus alert rules, for example.

What are some tools / algorithms that would help with that? Techniques preferred over implementations but I'm working in Python here 🙂
