I mean, come the fsck on. #Sysadmin work is hard enough and frustrating enough even without the tools being designed as if someone *wanted* to make things confusing and almost impossible to debug.

But #Zabbix developers looked at #sysadmin work and thought to themselves "hey, I know, we're going to make a tool that dials the confusion up to 11!"

Cyberpunk conjured a world at this end state of neoliberal reorganization. What is remarkable is not that writers anticipated how the neoliberal turn would go, but that 40 years and several international economic crises later, politicians still respond to these crises with solutions that prioritize markets over people. slate.com/technology/2020/04/c


> Signal is hiring developers to build Rust libraries that help make private communication simple. If you care about code quality as much as you care about user privacy, you should fit right in.


Looks like the #Qt devs are using COVID-19 as an excuse to effectively make Qt proprietary software.

"last week, the company suddenly informed both the #KDE e.V. board and the KDE Free QT Foundation that the economic outlook caused by the Corona virus puts more pressure on them to increase short-term revenue. As a result, they are thinking about restricting ALL Qt releases to paid license holders for the first 12 months"

A year in the software world is eternity, may as well not release it.

should be fine, now. I still have a minor issue with redis, I'm going to solve it tomorrow.


Oh, also me: I'm going to remove the log crate and then use println! and dbg!...

Also also me: Oh, I can use dbg! around the thing I want, instead of using it like a log...

Me: Ok, I just need to create a connection to Joplin and save the content there.

Also me: I'm going to move the configuration to its own module, and then... Hey, I can use generics for filesystem save and Joplin save...

Note to self: I don't have the resistance to drink a whole bottle of wine in 30 minutes and not suffer consequences.

I found out only yesterday that #Jitsi has dropped #GoogleAnalytics from their public instance meet.jit.si/ , which is a great improvement for #privacy ! (They still do analytics, as documented here: jitsi.org/security/ , which is a good read for any Jitsi user.)

To Jitsi admins:

– Add a privacy policy (or a link to it) to your landing page.
– Be aware of Google STUN servers in your configuration (see also github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/pu).
– Change the default text of the landing page since it may incorrectly state that Jitsi is fully encrypted.
– Try to deploy HTTP security headers, like a strict Content Security Policy.
– Keep your server software up-to-date (see also infosec-handbook.eu/as-wss/).
– Be nice to each other.

Wow, that's a completely different movie, if you watch it really drunk.

One thing I noticed while drunk watching "Star Trek: Into Darkness":

What's wrong with those bat'leth? They should follow the original design by Kahless, but those are different...

Uhura: "You bring me here to speak Klingon, so let me speak Klingon".

See what I'm talking about? See?!?

So I'm watching "Star Trek: Into Darkness" again, and when Bones talks to Sulu "Remember how to never piss you off", you see that there was some good points there.

... unless they focused on fan service like they did in "Beyond".

Pacific Rim: Uprisiing had everything to make it a good movie:

Great robots,

Great Monsters,

It is just the script that sucked donkey balls.

I have a simple plan today:

I'll open the wine


I'll drink the wine.
