Ug, I love writing software and software tools to support RPGs

I wish there was a way to support people in that action without money changing hands, and without weirdness

The boring things are what will save your bacon: password managers, physical security keys for 2FA, choosing to ignore SMS messages + random emails that seem a little off, verifying information out of band, building a security plan to protect important assets

I have a list of actions to do and dumped them all in a file and am just repeatedly running `head -1 list ` and this feels like I'm either being smart or dumb
`ls` every few min is "the clack tongs together every few min" of CLI work
If you don't know where you are, you don't know where you're going!

Figuring out how to not be helpful is one of the weirdest parts of being a lead.

I can't just help everyone immediately, I need to figure out how to help people by connecting them to the right people. I just want to do it!

Someone just asked me if I could do something "in code", and after confusion I found out that I they meant *VSCode*

Tech support for a program we use at work said that "There will be quite a few warnings saying tables already exist" after making the change they recommended.

This was an understatement. I've been clicking "okay" almost continuously for 20 + minutes by now...

Today is the first day in my adult life I've had air conditioning (it was installed friday but we didn't use it until today), and damn does it feel weird

I had to learn how to do JOINs in mysql today

Can I never learn any more MySQL?

Side note: it's weird seeing a Windows 3.1 interface with "ALSA" in the background.
Yeah, it's very off and I love it

Has anyone gotten # working on # ?
@silverwizard I haven't even gotten it running on Linux.
Really? I find it really simple in the in-browser version? For some reason it seems to fair a bunch of dwm?
To be fair, I really haven't tried. My daily driver doesn't have a webcam, and I just use it on my phone when necessary.
I am exclusively running it on work machines - though I think I've tried it on my currently-stock macbook
try with the flatpak version, works great (I hate zoom tho)

Breaking my own rules by wrapping a script whose args I always forget in a second script that handles the args for me.

I feel like this is gonna cause me *more* problems in the future


I guess my Mac has decided to not read USB devices today

No, I didn't want to read my calendar, or contacts. Definitely didn't wanna use an external mouse.

As a dad my irony poisoning means I say things like, "There's an old saying, bear is driving, how can this be?"

I love how removing one line from a given JSON file can, but necessarily, render it invalid

Setting up a tablet for a 3 year old

I feel like he deserves to have access to technology (and he's alone and inside a lot due to pandemics)

And - holy shit - technology for kids is a horrorscape wasteland
Having given a tablet to my oldest when she was very young, we plan on putting it off as long as possible with the new one. The only thing I can recommend for your own sanity, block YouTube.
yeah, no youtube capabilities was a requirement!

Ug - the last hour basically unfucked my day. Social Media is super important to me in the sense of "I like these people", and the fediverse is the place where I am actually happy.

And I was trying to setup some cloud inventory stuff for a few days - and that was gargage.

So now I got both fixed within an hour.

What a weird day.


that was DB surgery.



my whole VPS just fucked it's DB...

I think I'm back - let me know if I seem broken or if I unfollowed you please!

pip apparently has a feature called 2020-resolver

Damnit - get on that! Resolve 2020! I'm tired of all this pandemic shit.

MrCopilot reshared this.

I’ve been using that feature since last summer, only I call it “therapy”
