I am listening to my spotify "On Repeat" playlist, and I recognize maybe half the songs

Go go algorithms

# achieved! New RPG day!

I am happy that I am legit not sure if I am gonna play this next, but I have the options to play enough things!

This is wildly inappropriate, this smacks of victim blaming. You can't let people be murdered and people's livelyhood set on fire, and then ask for dialogue and definitions.

Nova Scotia must bring restitution, show they are commited to no more attacks, and then seek dialogue

Handy hiring question for the coming decade or two:

"So, did you wear a mask during #?"

I got a shipping update that my laptop would be in Canada on the 21st. Shipping showed me it was in Hong Kong this morning. Somehow it is now in the USA.

Shipment tracking is weird

Why aren't they just using a router with a pen attached?!
+10 points to the designer of this direct mailer. To help sell a “handwritten note” eyecatch, they printed fake “pen bleed” on the back! It looks super authentic!

But... halftone dots never lie

Unfortunately, these audits (called "risk limiting audits") aren't yet routinely done everywhere in the US. That is by far the most important open technical problem in election integrity right now.

I was deleted from wikipedia for non-notability, and was only undeleted when I was quoted in the NYT about women who get deleted from wikipedia for not being notable. 🙄

Hey # types - anyone have a sense of how to make httpd handle websockets in a way that doesn't involve relayd?

Me after needing a block of contiguous time in order to do some DB fixes, and a few intercontinental file transfers. And finding out I didn't have a spare contiguous 200GB anywhere. And finding out a bunch of crap was out of date...



My instance might be randomly crapping out updates for a... while
Something like 60% of the time I was gone was trying to make FreeBSD ports update. Because I needed to update about 1000, and every 5-6 ports asked me if I wanted to change the settings, and there was no option for "just use the same settings"

@choffstein @pat_wilson Does that mean it's impossible to keep the truck in the center of the road?

I've gotten good enough at OpenBSD's ksh that I can no longer use tcsh on FreeBSD without slowing WAAAAY down. Damnit

cops just love putting their special fake flag on everything

imagine if you called up, like, an HVAC repair guy and he came in with a special logo representing how HVAC repair is the thin line between order and civilization collapse, and that means he is allowed to be racist

The Bush administration was fucking wild, and often just deleted shredded lots of stuff the moment there was a FOIA request. They routinely framed journalists making FOIA requests as terrorist enablers.

Ok ok ok

Friend is getting laid off due to COVID.
Anyone looking for a good SOC analyst?

So, uh, plan for the future:
If someone is on their notice period, don't release an experimental unstable code branch to production and then put them as primary on-call

The kindest thing they will do is quit

Yes, sir, I can see how hiring a bunch of 3rd party developers might seem like a slam dunk. 😭

People talking about JLA monitor duty is gonna make me write some "Ops on the JLA Watchtower" fanfic

12ish years after seeing it the first time, I now understand why everyone who had read the book hated the Night Watch movies

Art Heist Documentary: "Here's info about the artist, and... I bet he might have fucked"
Actual Art Heists:
I didn't get your joke, but the article is great at showing how ingrained western imperialism is. While Norwegian law enforcement probably got China's motive, other quoted people are absolutely dumbfounded that they might want their things looted during a retaliatory military campaign back.

I think my new fridge is ruining my wifi network. Fuck.
I first read "I think my new fridge is running my wifi network" and I was perfectly cool with that.

I want to talk a little about bounded creation. I am going to be sliding a little between programming and D&D - since I don't think the idea is different for me.

What IS new is that the characters will be played by trans and nonbinary actors. Say *that*

Can we just toss .webp in the bin?

What a needless fracturing of standards.
