"It's not bloated, it's robust" but unironically.

I mean there *is* such a thing as unnecessary software bloat, but there are people who are like "Pfff, you have wheels AND tires?"

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!) 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 inaturalist.org/people/pgtips9

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 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 session.

I'm *reeeally* glad Screen keeps your tabs alive in the background so you can reconnect to it!

When you load a file from C, if there are syntax errors in the file, the error isn't printed to the stdout.

Is there a way to fix that? The Scheme file is a user-written config file so it's *definitely* going to have errors in it, and I'd like to let users know what's wrong.

This is one of the most useful books I have ever read:


"Internet Core Protocols" by Eric. A. Hall.

Oh it's not Julio Branson
It's Julio Biason.

It's funny how you can see someone online nearly everyday for *YEARS* and miss things like that...

I wish I could just make hot takes all day and rake in the boosts, but like, this is Fedi. Everyone already knows all that crap.

Also naming the bad guy organization "Falcon-O" because they're working on their evil operation inside a volcano.

Yes every name is a pun and I know it's not that original but no-one can stop me.

Naming my game's town "Helenback", as in "I'll follow you to Helenback".

It's good.
