"I hoard family."

A programmer was sentenced to 255 days in jail. He asked the judge if he could make it 256 days instead. The judge granted his request and the programmer walked free the next day.

help cd # There are several commands inside bash called 'built-ins'. You can access info about them using 'help builtin' or just run 'help' to see the list of built-ins. This may be one reason why some command doesn't have a man page if you've been wondering about that.

We have been warned that a free version of #Fedilab has been published on GPlay.

@mntmn the laptop arrived, i'm really happy with it

the manual is excellent. i don't think i've seen a technical manual for a computer that was useful and detailed like this and not just legalese goop, ever

connecting the batteries was also easy, having opened Acer laptops before it was something i dreaded 😅 , next up the NVMe

and i… guess i have to get back to etnaviv dev now hehe

The temple was hazy with incense. I knelt and asked my question.
"You will discover a new world," the oracle answered, "and taste its salt."
I knew it was not literal. The oracle only speaks in mysteries.
And now, I listen to your gentle snores, lick my fingers again, and smile.

Our fights have different technical characteristics and different structural remedies particular to those characteristics, but they are, fundamentally, the same fight.
