Ugh, a pipe cracked. I'd been putting off figuring out how all the plumbing worked in this house.

So, now that 1.39 is out, what are everyone's favorite stable-only, non-actix web frameworks to use as demos for the new async/await stuff?

Is totally broken on iOS 13.2 for anyone else? Other clients still work fine, but all upgraded iOS devices hang forever connecting...

Dealing with a big purchase at work and irritated with the PO process. You'd think that since paying for things is the fundamental operation of capitalism, it's be better at doing it...

Apparently getting served injected ads by one public WiFi hotspot was what it took for me to set up a WireGuard endpoint on one of my VPSes and configure my phone to use it when on untrusted WiFi.

Is there an iOS browser that has something like Firebug?

I bought some Audio-Technica ATH-CKS5TW earbuds recently and, if anyone is looking for Bluetooth earbuds to use with an iOS device, I'd highly recommend them. Great audio quality (they support AAC which is the top thing to look for in Bluetooth audio devices to use with iOS), crazy-long battery life, reasonably comfortable, and they block most of the BART screech without giving me an ANC headache.

you know it's going to be good when something has a filename of "proposal_03.07.2019 v02.docx_Page 1-20.pdf"

Building Linux 5.3.x fails with "Error: using shift_ist requires paranoid=1"; anyone else run into this? Not sure if it's an artifact of my assembler version or something in my kconfig or what.

it's cool that a stick of RAM catastrophically failing no longer brings down the whole machine and linux can hotplug RAM

It occurs to me that I haven’t bought a non-rack-mounted UPS in, like, 15 years.

The big East Bay power outage today has me thinking about getting a UPS for my desktop & network gear. Is the usual recommendation still just to get an APC model one VA-size bigger than you think you need?

conspiracy theory, apple 

Important 11 update: it doesn't completely lose service in SFBART near MacArthur. Modem/radios are at least slight improved over all previous Intel iPhones...

Someone at work mentioned a paper from college today, and I idly noticed that I have a folder full of papers I wrote for a history class ("History of Science and Technology in the Modern World") from my Junior year that I have *absolutely no memory of taking*. According to my transcript, I got an A?

Seriously, if you'd asked me yesterday I would've sworn I never took a history class after high school.
