Pinned toot

meta, COVID-19 

If you don't put CWS on your COVID-19 posts, I'm muting you.

If you boost someone who doesn't put a CW on their COVID-19 post, I'm unfollowing you.

Pinned toot

Guess I should start with an introduction.

Hi, I’m Chris. I do yoga and bake and play tabletop RPGs. I do computer stuff to pay the bills (arcane internal language tools development). Oldschool Unix nerd meets modern liberal views. LGBT-friendly (they/them) socialist.

I like books and hugs and tea and coffee, sometimes all at once. Trying to be the kindest person I can.

New Robert Rich is *very* good. Definitely one of his best albums, IMO. Digital is pay what you want, album + digital is 12 USD. robertrich.bandcamp.com/album/

This ends tonight for anyone interested. US only, I'm afraid, but that makes sense given it's a US holiday.

If you've been wanting to pick up a book or two from No Starch Press, they've got a Memorial Day (US military holiday) sale on until Monday, discount code REMEMBER30. The code is valid from midnight PDT tonight.

Just realized something. The CPU in this machine is 6 years old and yet it's still delightfully zippy.

I couldn't bear using a 6 year old CPU 10 years ago (so a 2004 CPU in 2010). This is powerful commentary on how much the CPU industry--or at least Intel--has slowed down in recent years.

Not surprising that Apple is looking at moving to ARM and AMD is making a niche for itself in massively parallel systems. I just wonder about the integrated components quality / driver support on not-Linux.

Of all the things that remind me that GNU's Not Unix, "The full documentation for foo is maintained as a Texinfo manual." is probably the most annoying.

This morning I learned that `zfs attach` is not the same as `zfs add`, and I found one thing--in the ten years of using it--that I don't like about ZFS: it is not possible to recover from this mistake without destroying the affected pool.

However, because ZFS is otherwise awesome, no data was lost because all I needed to do was take a snapshot of the pool, send it somewhere with enough storage to house it temporarily, recreate the pool properly, and then re-send it back.

Folks who want / need image captions: if I post a bunch of related images where one description applies to all of the images (like my previous post of several closed businesses), what's the best approach? Do I duplicate the description? Is using the post body acceptable?

Please boost, it's hard for me to tell what folks need in this case.

Businesses closed around 18:20 in downtown Philadelphia, PA. A cigar company open since 1898, Lush Cosmetics, and an Apple Store. The Apple Store, in particular, would be packed this time of day / year.
