I don't want to stretch because stretching is hard. The problem is it only gets harder over time.
You know how in Mario, when you can't beat a level a "gold tanooki suit" appears, and if you wear it it makes everything easier?
Yeah real life should have that. I could use a gold tanooki suit sometimes.
Please welcome my friend @pgtips91
He's been here for a while, but doesn't feel stuck in at all :-(
In addition to his profile (pls read it!) https://photog.social/@pgtips91 he is also a linux geek I've known for around 15 years now I think. He writes lots of custom bash scripts. His daughter is an ios coder and I believe he has a background in accounting.
So. Sheep farmer, Linux, GPG, wellness, permaculture, philo, pol... He's a very interesting man!
He's also on https://www.inaturalist.org/people/pgtips91
The Swallows are building a nest in our gazebo, basing it on last year's nest but pulling it partially apart and building onto it with fresh mud.
Two days after I first saw the nest it appears to be complete, on the outside at least.
I think, from memory of earlier nests, that it will be lined inside with soft material and feathers.
Is it worth talking to the irssi guys about this? I always feel like it's just an "I'm dumb and can't use simple software" scenario, but it still feels wrong.
I have gotten the "SSL verification error" in #irssi on ALL OF MY MACHINES, and everyone on the internet has a thousand solutions to it that don't work.
I'm gonna go the "convenience-over-security" route and suggest something wild...
Remove 'ssl_verify=yes' from the default config.
If a user is bent up on security and needs to not only use SSL, but to also verify the key, they can, but considering how confusing it is for most users, it should not be a default.
Had a little panic attack when I closed my Xterm window and realized I just closed a 10-tab #Screen session.
I'm *reeeally* glad Screen keeps your tabs alive in the background so you can reconnect to it!
This is one of the most useful books I have ever read:
"Internet Core Protocols" by Eric. A. Hall.
I'm a UNIX user from Alberta, Canada, and I'm a failing computer scientist who works in LISP and Ada.
Half of what you say will go over my head but I'll act like I have a solution.
