Pinned toot

It took me way too long to come around to the concept of containerization, but damn if you can't do some pretty cool things with it.

I’ve never been happier to hear about a minor feature update in my life 😁

“Firefox to hide notification popups by default starting next year”

Has anybody ever used Jest in a project which uses the import statement, and is willing to help me?

It’s very important that I add unit tests to my project because it’s becoming more and more stressful to publish new releases because of how easy it is to introduce regressions…

Boost appreciated. :)

I’m pretty sure this Nespresso I bought is going to lead to a heart attack

You ever just fundamentally disagree with the way someone loads a dishwasher?

Git internals, in a nutshell:

.git/objects contains a bunch of files named for their sha-1 hash, these are objects.

An object can be a blob, tree, commit, annotated tags, or arbitrary user data.

A blob is a file.

A tree is a list of files, their unix file mode, and other trees.

A commit has a list of parent commits, a date, author, commit message, and a tree ID.

An annotated tag has a commit ID and a message.

References are files in .git/refs, whose contents are a commit ID. Example references include branches (.refs/heads), tags (.refs/tags), and remote branches (.refs/remotes).

Remotes are stored in .git/config, as well as any relationships between remote branches and local branches.

Folks, I’m seeing a lot of people recommend setting xpinstall.signatures.required to false to fix the Firefox extensions issue.


It disables signature checking on extensions which means that you open yourself up to malicious extensions if you install any new ones or if you have auto updates on.

Either follow the instructions here by @amolith

Or go the officially recommended (but less private) route:


So I finally set up a Pi Hole last week and the stats it spits out are simply nauseating

I've been listening to the Titans of Text podcast and am loving that sweet, sweet text-based nostalgia:

Fun fact: MUD, the genre's titular game, was called "Multi-User Dungeon" as an homage to , which was originally called "Dungeon" before TSR made them change it.

The thing I find particularly interesting about so far is how different using it *feels*. It's a lot less "shouting into the void" and more "mingling in a crowded room."

I probably should have prefaced that last toot by saying that I really enjoy learning about the etymology of computing terminology 😶
