Sysadmin interviews are developer interviews but the interviewees have a different skillset than the interviewer

DevOps as a concept has made this worse

Want to generate boring white cards with text?! Do I ever!

FUCK YES! I have managed to write a tool to take a YAML file and make cards out of them
Even will let you add art

Next plan is to make them into a printable PDF compatible with drivethrucards

Of course, you need to figure out how to install Image::Magick


The ways I outlined are the ones that work. My wife works as the accountant for a non-profit that is heavily involved in public activism. I have been involved in 10,000 petition efforts in the past year.

Do What you want. Its your time and effort to waste. I'd rather be effective.
And I think time on social media is not my primary activism time, but I will boost and say things that are political

I have tried to "cpan install Image::Magick" on three separate OSes, all of them with perlmagick installed

And all of them are broken the same way

Image::Magick always makes me sad.
One day I am going to use a sensible graphics language

But for the most part, frontends are not my thing, but someone wrote a pretty good tutorial for exactly what I want, and it seems easier to debug cpan internals than figure out graphics

I hate that people dislike unroll apps because they are publicly boosting *content* which is actually a public post

I also hate that the unroll apps are definitely predatory

I also hate that *content creation* has to be a thing to make people work in industry

This is important to say aloud, and a problem. Computers are power and cost a lot, so people want to get money from computers. So all DIY is flavoured by money.

Even modern open source.

Are you auditioning to be Canadian Mitch McConnel?

I know you should be holding Trudeau to account, but... tone

This is really interesting. This feels like a very explicit statement of "harming queer people is so bad for a business that you need to alienate your customer base in order to fix it" .

Which is amazing

Yes, I know, this is Breitbart and Ted Cruz's facts, I don't know anything about if it's real.


Well, since you asked...

Prohibition Orcs - it's the modern year of 1927, and orcs still have to put up with elvish bullshit

Immortal Clay - because John Carpenter's "The Thing" didn't go far enough

Seriously, pronouns in bio
Pronouns on con badges
Pronouns on your company's chat
Put your pronouns everywhere
And, if you are cis, be the first person in your space to do this!

Ug, I am writing fantasy fiction set in a universe I know everyone but me will hate (our world, but with magic, but it's just normal, it became normalized at the tail end of the Roman empire, but like, the setting is modern San Francisco and there's our modern broken startup scene), but I really am enjoying writing it, but I want to share it, but I know most of the people I share stuff like this with will be put off that *introducing magic to the modern world would change it*

And that sucks

I hate it

I know I don't have to consider audience for personal writing, but if I don't consider audience, I can't get others excited

Nah, it's mostly me being stressed that I hate my work

But did you know that the history of the Iberean Penninsula is Punic and therefore similar to late Roman (to the point they have characters that got folded into Hercules) and then it's Moorish, then Catholic, so there's less exciting and new here. And Californian indigenous spirituality doesn't use dreams except for as prophetic? Their spiritual belief is centered around an underworld and a supernal world, with the primary form of terror being underworld monsters.

Meaning that California Dreams genuinely only exist as a concept that you can magically engage with through the lens of colonization (specifically the dominate colonizers, and the displaced and subjugated colonizers can't, without going into Catholic magic). Meaning trying to mystically engage with the myths of Silicon Valley is hard to do without using western magic.

Which just... sucks, because that woulda been awesome

So, wait
The government made a university
The government got the university accredited
The government issued visas based on enrollment in that institution
The government accepted payment for services it did not offer (courses)
The government then arrested the students?

Actually you can use bluetooth on OpenBSD, just search for it on the net how.
The last bluetooth support was 5.5 to my knowledge

Even if you don't it only solves the problem for yourself too, right?
